Virginia Ground plays such a unique style of music, they created their own genre to describe it: Appalachiaphonic. Jamen Denton and his fountainesque songwriting combined with an ensemble of inventive musicians collaborate to create a sound at once electrically novel yet hauntingly familiar. With Justin Denton on drums, Derrick Boardwine on the five-string bass, Blake Collins on mandolin, and electric guitar, Will Outlaw on trombone, Ben Smith on harmonica, Jon McGlocklin on harmony vocals, and Jamen on acoustic guitar and lead vocals, this group marries sounds from blues and funk to country, rock, and reggae, tempering their forceful and fluid sounds with elements of Dixieland and swing to craft the Appalachiaphonic.
Admission is $5 at the door. Admission is free for children under 12.
