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.

Krippenstapel plays the fiddle and guitar, and is known as the harmony master. Her duo partner, Summers, is known for her guitar and banjo play, as well as vocals. While The Other Years take audiences back to a musical era that once was, they are still able to make the sound contemporary despite its appealing rusticity.
