Grit City Grass
Grit City Grass is a group of five talented bluegrass musicians who have been performing in the Charlottesville, Va. area for years, and have developed quite a reputation for their wide range of Bluegrass styles. They have won a number of band competitions, including the Virginia State Bluegrass championship, and have won several individual awards as well. GCG’s first album, Rumble of the Rails, was released last year. They are currently working on their second album made up of only original music.

Most of Glen’s performances include popular Country music (cover songs) as well as a few of Glen’s own songs. His show is very high energy and entertaining, and also very professional and suitable for all ages. Great music for all family events! Based in Amherst County, Virginia – Glen has performed at HUNDREDS of Outdoor Events, and worked with over 40 National Acts (from groups such as Lonestar to artists such as Joe Nichols)
Dark Hollow Band
Dark Hollow has been pouring traditional bluegrass music through the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains for over 15 years. Their inspiration comes from some of the most talented musicians in the industry such as Ralph Stanley, Lester Flatt, Charlie Moore, Earl Scruggs and many more.

The Fluvanna Flutterwheels along with four other area square dance clubs (Charlottesville-based Virginia Reelers, Grand Squares of Nelson, Circle 8 of Waynesboro, and the Greene Cloverleafs), are looking forward to introducing the State Folk Dance to the crowd.
The Virginia Ramblers are a traditional bluegrass band based out of central Virginia, in the Charlottesville area. We honor the legends of bluegrass, such as Jimmy Martin and the Stanley Brothers, and strive to carry on in that tradition. A band of bluegrass veterans, we focus on rich, vocal harmony and strong instrumentation. We perform secular and gospel bluegrass, with some original tunes.
