8 am to 12 pm (edt)
Atlantic Weekly returns to the Charlottesville City Market this Saturday, August 24, for its regular fourth Saturday of the month broadcast. There will be live music with members of Ragged Mountain String Band, Haze & Dacey and P.j. McCrowell, banjo player for Grass & Eclectic Co. Our Soundboard friends will chat with some of the vendors, and we will have some giveaways.
How does one describe Ragged Mountain String Band? High Energy Old-Time Fiddle and Banjo Tunes, Impassioned Songs of Life, Love, Lust, Loss, and a Lot More from the Mountains of the Virginias and Carolinas. The members are Reuben Miller, lead fiddle, banjo; Stavros Calos, lead fiddle; Dan Easley, banjo, lead vocal; Tucker Rollins, mandolin, fiddle; and Charlie Davis, upright bass. The band performs each Tuesday night at The Whiskey Jar in Charlottesville, and will be performing August 24 at Albemarle Cider Works in North Garden, VA.
Haze & Dacey are an acoustic duo comprised of Kirsten Hazler (lead and backing vocals, acoustic guitar, keys) and John Dacey (backing and lead vocals, upright bass, guitar). They play a wide mix of alt-country, folk-pop, and acoustic rock. You can catch them this Saturday afternoon at Blue Mountain Barrel House in Arrington, VA.
P.j. McCrowell is the banjo player for Grass & Eclectic Co., a local band that focuses on a mix of bluegrass, country and standard tunes played in a driving acoustic style. When not playing with the band, P.j. can sometimes be found on the Charlottesville Downtown Mall doing a little busking. The entire band will be performing August 24 at Tristen Fest in Louisa.
