Reynolds Homestead 12pm – 6pm

Music for Saturday June 16th, kicks off with WAITING TO EXHALE, who is fronted by two women vocalists, both daughters of hard working Appalachian families with roots deep and long in the mountains of Virginia. Their songs, through their emotional renditions, tell a tale of their mountain families struggles and joys while blending together a haunting tapestry of harmonies and interplay in their vocals.

Headlining the event the HACKENSAW BOYS. For almost two decades, the Hackensaw Boys have plowed the asphalt bringing their raw, gritty American vernacular sounds to the music halls and streets across the world. Twenty years later, the group continues their burning hot vision of American roots music into a new age, fueled as much by a rowdy punk spirit as by the traditional masters that first inspired them

Closing out the day will be GROOVA SCAPE bringing a fresh, powerful vibe to the event. Their bluesy shows, which are always packed with fun and surprises are fronted by World-Class vocalist Brittany Sparks and veteran guitarist, Henry Lazenby, this five-piece is known for its startlingly good original tunes. When Sparks turns loose those pipes, audiences sit up and take notice.
