YMSB Hits the Road for 2015 Fall Tour

Submitted by JP Cutler Media on Mon, 09/14/2015 - 4:22 pm

For nearly 17 years, Yonder Mountain String Band has redefined bluegrass music, expanding the traditional acoustic genre beyond its previously established boundaries by steadily pushing the envelope into the realms of rock n' roll and improvisation.

Lockn' Festival 2015 | Day 1 in Virginia

Submitted by Mark Cameron on Fri, 09/11/2015 - 5:46 pm

A microburst came through Arrington, VA Wednesday afternoon, leveling all the tents and structures at Oak Ridge Farm. Staff members were thrown through the air by walls of wind gusting over 70 miles an hour.  The pummeling of Oak Ridge lasted 10 minutes and delayed Lockn’s opening until today. A big heart-felt thank you and much respect goes out to all the staff that worked overtime to rebuild the festival grounds.
