Bumper Jacksons
Bumper Jacksons
Bumper Jacksons are hot and sweet, painting America's story from the streets of New Orleans to Appalachian hollers. Unafraid to scrap together new sounds from forgotten 78's, the Bumper Jacksons gracefully balance paying homage to the traditions while fashioning their own boisterous but elegant style. The group began as a duo, a city-meets-country experiment between songstress Jess Eliot Myhre and banjo player Chris Ousley. They hopped on bicycles, touring the country, instruments on their backs, seeking to reimagine roots music. In five short years, Bumper Jacksons grew to a brassy six-piece, with horns and pedal steel. They've been honored multiple times as the Mid-Atlantic's "Artist of the Year" & "Best Traditional Band" at the Washington Area Music Awards. Bursting at the seams with some of the richest threads of old America, Bumper Jacksons bring you into the center of a party where everyone's invited and the dance floor never sleeps.
Fly Birds
Hailing from Winchester, Virginia, The Fly Birds are an alternative bluegrass trio comprised of Liz on banjo, Sarah on guitar, and Mary on bass. These ladies set themselves apart with their synthesis of original songwriting, pure and timeless vocals, and simple instrumentation. Together, this award-winning group creates a memorable and honest sound, with a charming presence on stage and record that is certain to make you want to dance, cry or sing along! The band was formed in April 2016 and are recording their first full length album slated for release at the end of this summer. Their original EP is available now for digital download on iTunes or CD Baby!! Follow them on FB or IG for updates on their tour schedule and album release.
