Scrapomatic Reunite for Epic Tour Opener

Legends of American blues, Scrapomatic, kick off their nationwide tour right here in Asheville on the Main Stage at Isis Music Hall Friday, March 27 at 8:30 p.m.

Formed in the late 90s by Mattison, a two time Grammy award-winning singer/songwriter and ASCAP award-winning songwriter Paul Olsen, Scrapomatic scrapes together some of the most talented musicians in American blues.

Mattison moonlights as a singer and songwriter for the Tedeschi Trucks Band, which he joined after eight years of lead-singing for the Derek Trucks Band.

Olsen is an ASCAP Award-winning songwriter whose compositions are the bedrock of the Scrapomatic catalogue.

He has written and co-written songs for albums by Susan Tedeschi, Amy Helm and Kristina Train.

The trio adds in the flavor of Dave Yoke, who brought his uncanny Alabama guitar stylings to the group in 2005 and went on to succeed Olsen in the Susan Tedeschi Band, eventually putting in a five-year hitch with the great Dr. John.

Tickets for the show are $20 per person and may be purchased online or at the venue.
