Rafe Hollister is coming to Sylva on Friday, June 8, and we're not talking about the character from The Andy Griffith Show.
This Rafe Hollister is a fivemember band from Haywood County which specializes in a brand of music it calls “mountain rock.”
“We use bluegrass instruments and drums and mix it with rock-and-roll,” says lead singer Sam Brinkley of Maggie Valley. "Our sound is inspired by Doc Watson, Johnny Cash and The Rolling Stones. If you mix those three together, that's kind of what we sound like.”
