GET EXCITED & GET TO KNOW THE BANDS

Railroad Earth

Railroad Earth is an Americana band with influences spanning several genres of folk music. Their name was borrowed from the Jack Kerouac short story “October in the Railroad Earth.” Railroad Earth’s music combines elements of bluegrass, rock and roll, jazz, celtic and more.

The group is also known for its extensive live improvisation and lyrical songwriting within an acoustic base. They’ve garnered rave reviews for their unique sound and exciting live shows and have become a staple act on the line-up of any Roots, Folk or jam-band festival. This is a live show you do not want to miss!

Colin & Caroline

Born and raised in Richmond, Virginia, Colin Healy and Caroline Mauck grew up with a foundation and love for music which helped to drive their passions as musicians. Colin and Caroline attended high school together, and after years of pursuing music in different directions, they were reconnected at a local spot in their hometown.

Colin & Caroline’s heart-warming harmonies, original lyrics and songwriting, and blend of creative covers first grabbed the attention of many in Central Virginia, and has since expanded to global platforms. Their song More Than Gravity was featured in the 2017 Netflix original series “13 Reasons Why”, and has continued to spread their presence to new audiences. Colin & Caroline look forward to releasing their first original 5-song EP “Wish I Was” this Summer, and are excited to see where the journey will lead next.

Muther Goose

Muther Goose is a Folk/American band hailing from our very own Richmond. For a taste of how great of a show they put on, check out their latest single “Chances” available on Spotify and Apple Music. Fun fact: Jacob Ritter (guitar, mandolin, harmonica, vocals) of Muther Goose is a former intern at The Broadberry!

 

JJ & Co

Based in Richmond, Virginia, with their toes firmly in the sands of Folly Beach, SC, JJ&Co have built their base of spirited fans through heavy touring, high harmonies, and impeccable bluegrass chops. With one foot in traditional roots music and the other on a reverb pedal, Stratocaster in hand, it’s no wonder that JJ&Co have attracted notable influences from Sam Bush to Band of Horses’ Ben Bridwell to collaborate with on stage and in the studio. Favorites at major festivals, including the Bristol Rhythm and Roots Reunion and FloydFest, JJ&Co have cultivated a faithful following across the southeast and out to Colorado, opening marquee gigs for acts including Taj Mahal and the Infamous Stringdusters.

 

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.

Helmed by founding member David Sickmen, the Hackensaw Boys have always had more in common with bands like The Clash, who celebrated the working class roots of their own music, than they did with an overly-polished Nashville mainstream. As evidenced in the Hackensaws’ history, their music fit as easily backing Charlie Louvin as it did in backstage jams on tour with Modest Mouse and the Flaming Lips.

South Hill Banks

The Jam-infused bluegrass band from Richmond, VA, South Hill Banks has been captivating crowds up and down the east coast with their eyes set west. After releasing “Riverside Dr.” in 2016, this young 5 piece has developed their energetic live show on the road, building a devoted fan base along the way. SHB draws from traditional bluegrass while delivering a psychedelic jam sound. Comprised of upright bass, acoustic guitar, mandolin, banjo, and electric guitar, this unique line up shows their excitement and dedication every night. Be on the look out for their new record in October, it’s sure to make waves.

Dalton Dash

Dalton Dash is a folk quartet from Richmond. Slow and sensual or quick and gritty. These guys are always celebrating their love for music in good company.

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.
