Asheville Junction is one of Asheville’s newest bluegrass/Americana bands, playing fun and lively music right out the gate. Our shows feature female and male vocals and harmonies, hot fiddlin’ and instrumentals, beautiful ballads, beloved standards, unique covers and originals. There’s a lot going on at the Asheville Junction! Folks find themselves singing, clapping, stomping or laughing along to our music before they know it.
Tierra Raiti, lead singer and fiery fiddler for the band, has been noticed as a formidable rising musician and invited to appear on the Woodsongs International Radio Show in March 2022. Tierra was a featured singer and player on an album she cut when she was 14 years old, Galax to Toledo Tracks. Recordings from this album have been played in roots and Americana radio shows around the world. Still in high school, Tierra is a phenomenally accomplished and versatile singer and fiddler, having won numerous fiddle contests and violin competitions, as well as singing competitions and scholarships ranging from jazz to classical to country.
Asheville Junction formed when mother-daughter duo Tierra and Maria Raiti moved to Asheville from Ohio and joined up with long-time local musicians Brad Pope on upright bass, Tim Comstock on mandolin and Frank Eastes ringing out the 5-string banjo. As a newly formed band with experienced and talented musicians and sounds, we are excited and honored that we’re scheduled to play at many of the region’s established community events, breweries and music venues in our first year.
