Jackass Flats
Jackass Flats
Fueled by original songwriting, award winning musicianship, and exhilarating bluegrass instrumentation, Jackass Flats epitomizes the new generation of acoustic string bands who combine creativity and tradition to produce something all together unique. Since taking home Virginia State Champion Bluegrass Band honors in 2002, the boys have been crowd favorites on the bluegrass, americana, and world music scenes. In 2003 Jackass Flats took their local music scene by storm and were awarded Best Bluegrass/Country Band by internet magazine Richmond.com, who called the band "masters of backwoods symphonies". In 2004 the band was presented with a Virginia Music Award for The Best Americana Jamband.
Dalton Dash
Dalton Dash
What began as a simple duet that has quickly burst into a colossal sound flared by robust song writing, ardent vocals and sturdy musicianship. This folk quartet originally met in the mountains of Appalachia. Dalton Dash began creating songs that spoke of love, loss, and troubles that today’s young people could relate to while keeping a traditional yet tempo pushing style.Their eclectic taste has allowed them to play shows that range from bluegrass to hard hitting rock and roll sets. With guitar playing that would knock the wind out of any listener just by watching and mandolin parts that bite at the heels of any dancer, the jovial and up-beat acoustic sounds seem electrified by their very energy, even when they slow it down a notch.
