The Appleseed Collective

The Appleseed Collective is a curious bunch of minstrels. Their music is at once classic and, perhaps guided by their youth, totally refreshing and as hip as any contemporary sound. Andrew Brown, the lead vocalist and guitar player, has a voice which seems suspended in time, as if one would've heard it echoing out of a blues joint in the 1930's.

Add in Katie Lee's sultry vocals and the band is fully equipped to blend jazz, blues, swing and bluegrass. The whole band is a talented collective of young musicians and their ability to roll in and out of three and four part harmonies leaves audiences captivated.

10pm. $5. Woodruff's, 36 E Cross St., Ypsilanti. www.woodruffsbar.com
