Upcoming Events

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. The food vendor is Garcia's Latin Market. 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. The food vendor will be Red Beard BBQ. thehitcherswv.wixsite.com/wvhitchers

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. The food vendor is Garcia's Latin Market. www.theplatescrapers.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. The food vendor is Street Meatz. www.reverbnation.com/theboatmen
