COPERNICUS

Genre: Acoustic bluegrass

Copernicus is an acoustic group based in Asheville NC comprised of Caleb Hanks (mandolin), Ken Chapple (Guitar), Judo Allison (Banjo), and Andrew Platt (Bass). Despite the instrumentation and a setlist dotted with bluegrass tunes, Copernicus strives to bring new elements into the acoustic genre with original arrangements and an eclectic repertoire of familiar songs from the past decades of popular music. Although they blend in well with society, the members of Copernicus are actually crash landed aliens trying to blend in amongst the life on this planet, they also like pizza.
