This year we will feature two local bands on Saturday afternoon:

Many Nights Ahead

Formed in early 2012, this band is fast becoming a fixture in the Valley. The group provides a fresh take on bluegrass. 

“If the performance that I heard live that recent Saturday night is any indication, these folks have a good chance to see the sky as their only limit.”
      Edward Tutwiler - Americana Rhythm Music Magazine

 

Bourbon Barrel Congress:

Bourbon Barrel Congress was born out of a decades old bluegrass jam at a burger and beer joint in a small Virginia town where the quintet met and conjures a sound that blurs the lines between bluegrass, old-time, folk and country music, that is familiar and fresh, old and at the same time new.

“...if you haven’t seen these guys perform, you need to find out when you can and make arrangements. THEY ARE SO GOOD."
