The Vespers 

When: Fri., Oct. 28, 9 p.m. 2011
Price: $10
The Vespers’ moody music is a blend of mostly acoustic indie folk and rock, and you can see why they’ve become favorites at, well, indie folk- and rock-friendly venues around their native Nashville. But the two-sister, two-brother quartet have more fortitude than you might think, taking their guilelessly postmodern songs and settings into more traditional bluegrass environments like southeastern Ohio’s Appalachian Uprising festival this summer, and this week, The Station Inn. Though their music may owe little to the obvious traditions associated with instruments like the five-string banjo, upright bass, mandolin and ukulele, The Vespers’ unaffected commitment to being in the musical moment and their equally unaffected Christian sensibility create a certain kind of kinship that’s won them fans in more, uh, hardcore circles. And though their new single “Will You Love Me” shares many traits with last year’s debut, Tell Your Mama, it shows a group that’s not afraid to dig deeper into their sources.
