Ben Sollee, Justin Lewis

When: Thu., May 10, 8 p.m. 2012

Out to prove Kentucky can handle more than bourbon, Ben Sollee uses a cello to craft Appalachian music with a bit of soul. Sollee infuses the traditions of his homeplace with R&B rhythms. His distinctive musicality has put him on stages and in studios with artists such as My Morning Jacket, Abigail Washburn and Béla Fleck. He's also released two solo records, toured the country on a bike (yes, with cello in tow), and been active in the fight against mountaintop removal coal mining. He may be classically trained, but Sollee's clearly not your typical cellist. Justin Lewis opens. —Ashley Melzer
