The Other Years to Open Appalachia in the Bluegrass

Heather Summers and Anna Krippenstapel of The Other Years are both originally from Louisville, Kentucky. They were neighbors growing up and their friendship was more of a sisterhood. Their style of music brings back old-time traditions in the lyrics and acoustics.
