What kind of music can you expect at our A.T. fest? Expect some hand-clapping, foot-stomping Americana tunes!
The Americana Music Association defines the genre as: "Contemporary music that incorporates elements of various, mostly acoustic American music styles—including country, roots rock, folk, gospel and bluegrass—resulting in a distinctive roots-oriented sound that lives in a world apart from the pure forms of the genres upon which it may draw."
Here's who's serving up "distinctive roots-oriented" sounds at the festival:
The Short Hill Mountain Boys. This five-piece Appalachian string band creates their own blend of bluegrass, old-time, cajun, classic country, and folk with tight harmonic vocals, fiddling and guitar picking.
Fiddlin' Dave and Morgan. The duo have been blending the sounds of the fiddle and octave-mandolin for almost 30 years, touring China, Scotland, Ireland, Wales and the Baltics as they play and sing their unique mixture of originals, old-time fiddle tunes and world music.
Justin Trawick & the Common Good. Performing their own twist on Americana in the DC area and along the East Coast since 2006, the band's music is an upbeat, foot-tapping experience with sounds that range from bluegrass to acoustic hip hop.
