Live Music w/ Virginia Ground
Oct 19, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pmFREE
This event is FREE and tickets are not required to enter the venue.
Virginia Ground categorizes their sound in one word: Appalachiaphonic. It’s a funky melodic marriage rooted in soul, blues, bluegrass, reggae, country, Dixieland, jazz, rock, Americana, swing and more. When Jamen Denton’s fountainesque songwriting collides with his ensemble of inventive musicians; Jon McGlocklin singing harmony vocals, Logan Fritz on bass and vocals, Justin Denton on drums, Ben Smith on harmonica, Will Outlaw on trombone, Ian Feathers on trumpet and James Bowman on keys,they create a sound that is infectiously novel yet still familiar. The band’s music has and always will pay homeage to the rich traditions that have long filtered through their part of Appalachian mountains from all over the world…
The band is an annual mainstay at the Bristol Rhythm and Roots Reunion music festival and has been featured at many other festivals over the years including FloydFest 2018. Keep an eye out for Virginia Ground in your city and at your favorite festivals and events in the future!
