The Apache Relay

Thursday, March 19
10:00PM - 10:40PM


Michael Ford Jr. was a music business major
when he met The Apache Relay in a Belmont
University dorm. They were already deep into
“a very Americana, very rootsy” sound, and
before long the band was backing up Ford
around campus, and soon everywhere else.
Ford Jr. dropped out of college, and the
group, which at the time included Mike Harris
(guitar, vocals), Brett Moore (keys, guitar,
mandolin), Kellen Wenrich (fiddle, keys)
gigged relentlessly behind their 2009 debut
1988 and 2011’s breakthrough American
Nomad. Midway through their touring in

joined the band rounding out the group’s line

album The Apache Relay found themselves
opening for Mumford & Sons and hitting such
festivals as Bonnaroo, Newport Folk Festival,
Firefly Music Festival, Voodoo Music
Experience, among others.
