About the artists:

Gary Ruley and Mule Train:

Gary Ruley and Mule Train are an acoustic ensemble headed by veteran flat picking guitarist/vocalist Gary Ruley. Mule Train includes a vast network of talented musicians who support and share Gary's drive to present the powerful acoustic sounds of Bluegrass, New Grass, and Jazz.

Ruley, a Lexington native, has shared the stage with Bluegrass legends Mac Wiseman, Bobby Lester (Hall of Famer), Vassar Clements, Tony Rice, and two-time grammy winner Curtis Burch. Most recently Ruley has performed shows with recording artist and champion flat picker Larry Keel and the Larry Keel Experience.

Gary has released 5 CDs, "Pickin Tradition", "Live at the Troubadour Vol 1", "Live at the Troubadour Vol.2", "Gary Ruley & Muletrain" and "The Southern Inn & Out". Gary also performs on Larry Keel's "Miles and Miles", Larry Keel's "Journeys", as well as "Walkers Run". Musicians of Mule Train include Anne Marie Simpson Calhoun (fiddle/vocals), Mary Simpson (fiddle/vocals), Brennan Gilmore (mandolin/vocals), Will Lee (banjo/vocals), David Knicely (bass), Larry Keel (guitar/mandolin/vocals), Jenny Keel (bass/vocals), Jeremiah Ruley (banjo), Daniel Knicely (mandolin/vocals), Nate Leath (fiddle), Shannon Wheeler (fiddle), Rex McGee (fiddle/banjo) and Steve Hoke (pedal steel/fiddle).

Gary Ruley and Mule Train have been voted the winner of the 2009 Rockbridge Community Peoples Choice Award for Arts/Entertainment.


The Trailblazers:

Based out of Wilkesboro, NC, the Trailblazers have taken a step back to the roots of Bluegrass, Americana, Folk, and Jazz music. The band has a solid foundation in the music they love, but they're constantly looking for new ways to make their mark in progressive acoustic music. The Trailblazers make original music and put their own twist on endless classics. They are the 2018 IBMA Momentum Band of the Year, and have won many prestigious contests, including Merlefest (2017), and the SPBGMA International Band Contest (2018).
