JASPER — “Somewhere on the spectrum between Old Crow Medicine Show and Mumford and Sons lies the spirited bluegrass-based artistry of The Way Down Wanderers. It is joyful, daring and occasionally sublime.” — The Associated Press.

The Way Down Wanderers will make their second journey to the historic Astra Theatre on Saturday, Nov. 23. Doors for this performance will open at 6:30 p.m. with the Indianapolis-based band Bigfoot Yancey scheduled to open at 7:30 p.m.
