Adrian+Meredith and The Appleseed Collective!Adrian+Meredith and The Appleseed Collective!

The Robin Theatre
1105 S Washington Ave
Lansing, MI  48910 Map

Two wonderful Americana/manouche/old-timey/folk/punk ensembles, with Michigan roots!

7PM showtime
6:30 doors
$12/15
All Ages

Adrian+Meredith: In a city filled with country cowboys and sit-on-a-stool songwriters, Adrian + Meredith make a different sort of roots racket. More Than A Little, the pair's debut, finds the East Nashville-based duo putting its own spin on Americana music, roughing up the genre's edges with the rule-breaking spirit of punk, the vintage twang of old-timey folk, the sneer of rock & roll, and even the frenetic bounce of early Swing and jazz manouche.

The Appleseed Collective: Progressive String-Swing band from Ann Arbor. Currently touring the nation!

"It's like Satch plus Django plus Joplin plus Bob Wills plus a little Bill Monroe, but the sum is actually greater than the parts." - Jason Marck of WBEZ Chicago's Morning Shift
