This year we will feature two local bands on Saturday afternoon:
Formed in early 2012, this band is fast becoming a fixture in the Valley. The group provides a fresh take on bluegrass.
Drymill Road first came to fruition in 2009 when guitar player and vocalist Sean Loomis started the band, “because of his desire to explore and perform bluegrass and acoustic music.” From there, David Hurt (bass/vocals), Douglas Ross (mandolin/vocals) and Mabe (banjo/vocals) joined the band, bringing their diverse musical backgrounds together to create a unique bluegrass/newgrass sound. “The band plays traditional music and instruments, but also loves to explore many non-traditional stylings,” explained Mabe. “Having four talented guys that come from such different musical backgrounds makes for a very interesting sound.” Despite differing musical influences and backgrounds, one thread runs strongly through the band explained Mabe, “and that is to make great music while having fun and giving the fans a great show.”
