2022 Band Line Up

The Barons

The Barons | 4 - 5:30 pm

Hailing from historic Charlottesville, Virginia in 2016, The Barons confront youthful themes of love and fear into their ethereal, booty shakin' rock n’ roll music. Fresh into their twenties, The Barons are frontman Peyton Alley, lead guitarist Josiah Ragland, bassist Kirtland Gray, and drummer Mathes Glymph. With extensive touring in the US college circuit and supporting the tours of top Billboard artists (i.e. Judah and the Lion, Catfish and the Bottlemen, Barns Courtney, The Aces, etc.) behind their back, The Barons have quickly developed their arena potential. The band currently has 12 singles released and there's no question their writing is prep for a full-length. The band intertwines intricate time signatures and heavy pop melodies into their tunes such as “Tell Me (There’s No One But You)” and “Yard Sale” while holding onto their straight forward rock n’ roll roots in tunes such as “Hands On” and “American High” that represent their journeys on tour through the road less travelled. Each song the band has released remains versatile in their ‘genre placement’ making the band’s writing and live shows that much more intriguing.




Kittyback | 2 - 3:30 pm

KiTTYBACK is a 4 person band based in New Freedom, PA fronted by female vocalist, Emily Throckmorton.



South River Strings

South River Strings | 12 noon - 1:30 pm

South River Strings is a four piece bluegrass, country, new grass band. From the harmonies to the beautiful sounds of acoustic instruments we try to bring you a full experience of Appalachia and the way we all grew up with picking on the front porch.

South River Strings (SRS) was formed by a group of friends pickin’ for fun. They soon came to find their voices and playing ability collided beautifully. With roots in bluegrass rock and roll and the blues SRS bring a unique blend of those genres in all of their music whether it is traditional bluegrass to 60s and 70s rock covers to slow waltzes. SRS was selected to be one of ten artists to represent the state of Virginia for a benefit concert for St Jude’s research that raised tens of thousands of dollars to help children. The bluegrass sounds of SRS the unique vocals harmonies and bluesy licks are bound to keep your attention.
