Third Thursday // Redleg Husky & Hope Griffin Trio

Join us for the third Red Rover Third Thursday at Habitat Tavern and Commons. Free! Bring your friends and loved ones to this special and intimate show. There will be a food truck on site.

Redleg Husky
Redleg Husky is a country and bluegrass band from Asheville, North Carolina. Since its inception in 2012, the group has been performing its unique blend of American music in barrooms, theaters, and festivals throughout the Southeast and beyond. 

Redleg Husky features Tim McWilliams on rhythm and lead guitar, banjo, and vocals, Son the Bassman on bass and vocals, and Nick Marino on drums. 

Hope Griffin Music
Born in Anchorage, Alaska, Hope Griffin was literally born into music. Surrounded by a musical family, she began singing and performing when she was very young. Hope first got turned onto the idea of writing her own music when she received a guitar at age 17. She attended Carson-Newman University and went on to receive a Bachelors degree in classical voice. It was there that her true flair for songwriting developed. Hope’s drive to perform her original works was launched after winning a songwriters contest in college in 2007. She eventually moved to Asheville, North Carolina where she began introducing her angelic vocals and folky lyrics into the music scene.

Since her time in Asheville, Hope has entered and won several singer/songwriter contests, including 2nd place of thousands to open for Dave Barnes. In an effort to expand her acoustic sound, she teamed up with NJ born cellist and Asheville transplant Jamie Leigh Bennett to create a dynamic guitar/cello blend of original sound. In 2016 & 2017, she consecutively snagged both best “Singer-Songwriter” and best “Acoustic/Folk Band” titles in Western North Carolina though community votes. Later on that year, Hope added long-time friend and talented lead guitarist Andrew Thelston into the group. Together, their combined fusion of her silky vocals, Andrew’s sassy, electric blues rifts, and Jamie Leigh’s deep, rich cello lines has made for a listening experience quite unlike any other. Hope’s “in your face” style of ballad writing, as well as the trio’s reputation for playing fresh versions of songs that span through the decades has made them popular amongst a wide range of age groups.
