Upcoming Events

The Halftime String Band
July 1, 2017
6:00p - 8:30p
The Halftime boys have entertained audiences from coast to coast with their unique blend of acoustic Americana music. Often described as "jam grass", the band, while having a strong bluegrass influence, does not include the standard elements of a traditional bluegrass band. (There is no banjo or fiddle in the group), and the song selection covers a wide array of musical styles. In addition to an eclectic song selection, the band also performs a number of original compositions. Halftime String Band consists of: Jason Jaros (guitar and vocals), Fred Crozier (mandolin and vocals) and Bob Spangler (upright bass and vocals). A “Halftime” show brings audiences to their feet and puts smiles on their faces. Tickets are $5, kids 6 and under get in free. www.thehalftimestringband.com

6:00p - 8:30p
The Jakob’s Ferry Stragglers draw freely from old-time, bluegrass, country, jazz, rockabilly and swing styles to create their tight, high-energy string band music. Well-crafted original songs with emotional depth, masterful picking, and resonant vocal harmonies combine to forge new territories and a fresh take on Appalachian Americana music. Tickets are $5, kids 6 and under get in free. www.jakobsferry.com

The Boatmen
August 5, 2017
6:00p - 8:30p
The Boatmen are from the heart of West Virginia. With diverse instrumentation and the right blend of soaring harmony over top of Americana anthems, they have created a niche all their own. Into their third year and second album the group has continually expanded its horizons through a non-stop tour schedule and constant support from their close knit fanbase. Come out to see this group which is easily viewed as bluegrass, rock-grass or a new-grass outfit; The Boatmen fall better into Americana Soulgrass. We will also have the local food vendor Street Meatz out selling dinner options! Come out and enjoy summer! Tickets will be $5, children 6 and under get in free. www.reverbnation.com/theboatmen

The Plate Scrapers
August 12, 2017
6:00p - 8:30p
As classic as cast iron, as space-age as a flying car -- The Plate Scrapers are serving up their own flavor of bluegrass by way of a winding wormhole through folk, jazz, and heavy metal dimensions. So grab yourself a thick slice of nostalgia, slap on a side of mind-bending originality, and top it off with some piping-hit pickin', and let this hungry bunch "take you out of this atmosphere." Tickets are $5, kids 6 and under get in free. www.theplatescrapers.com/

Western Ave String Band
August 19, 2017

“Western Ave.” plays a huge variety of genres from Old time traditional Bluegrass, Fiddle tunes (some even jamming into the Grateful Dead) plus a large number of original tunes written and arranged specifically for our group.

Weary Space Wanderer
August 26, 2017
6:00p - 8:30p
Weary Space Wanderer is spreading improvisational, Appalachian-jam over the made-from-scratch material of singer-songwriter Kevin Hamric. Taking the stories built on an acoustic guitar and shaping them into mind-bending trips of Americana and roots-rock exploration, Weary Space Wanderer is nothing short of an eclectic ride into what modern mountain music can be. Tickets are $5, kids 6 and under get in free. wearyspacewanderer.com/#khm

The West Virginia Hitchers
September 2, 2017
6:00p - 8:30p
The original "Hitchers" was very guitar-centric with pedal steel and percussion layered on top. The new "WV Hitchers" is a more authentic Folk-Americana sound, relying on the powerful songwriting and smooth vocals of Maria that melds with the strength of the lead guitar position, now occupied by Chuck on his pedal steel. Dan and Creed fill out the mix with Dan's subtle and steady percussion as well as Creed's tastefully rich bass lines. Tickets $5, kids 6 and under get in free. thehitcherswv.wixsite.com/wvhitchers
