The New Ballard’s Branch Bogtrotters continue to play in the traditional Appalachian string-band style often playing for square dances around the region. Rounding out the Bogtrotters lineup are: Eddie Bond on Fiddle, Dennis Hall on Guitar, Josh Ellis with Clawhammer Banjo, Bonnie Bond on Bass and Caroline Beverly on Mandolin. Old time music is alive and well, and continues to attract fans of all ages. The New Ballards Branch Bogtrotters remain a driving force in carrying the traditional music of the Virginia/Carolina Blue Ridge into the new millennium. They are an inspiration for future generations of mountain musicians!

Admission: $8 at the door

New Ballard's Branch Bogtrotters play "Boil Them Cabbage Down"
Thursday, May 16 @ 7:30pm

High Fidelity is a classic bluegrass band of stellar musicians and singers who are steeped in the sounds of tradition and outstanding in their field. They draw much of their inspiration from bands like Don Reno & Red Smiley, The Stanley Brothers, The Louvin Brothers, Jim & Jesse, and a host of lesser known regional artists from the same era. Many have described them as the new Johnson Mountain Boys, interpreting classic era bluegrass through the fresh, young perspective of today’s generation. Maybe it is this quality that makes High Fidelity so warmly received and widely loved by every audience they perform for – both by the grandparents and the grandchildren.

Admission: $15 in advance / $18 day of show
