Johnny Staats and Friends

Johnny Staats exploded onto the Nashville and national scene in 2000, when his first CD, “Wires and Wood” by The Johnny Staats Project, was the talk of Music City and quickly received international attention and acclaim. Johnny’s vocals and astonishing guitar and mandolin speed and creativity have since won him a large and varied following worldwide.

Johnny first established his musical dominance in his home state of West Virginia winning the prestigious Vandalia Gathering Mandolin championships in 1996, 1997 and 1999. 1997 was particularly notable for Johnny at the Vandalia Gathering when he won first place in both the mandolin and guitar competitions while also placing third in the fiddling competition. Early appearances on West Virginia’s “Mountain Stage” NPR Radio Program caught the attention of the music industry and led to the launch of his recording career.

The Bing Brothers featuring Jake Krack

West Virginia’s Bing Brothers Band plays old-time music with a “hard-driving style that reflects the gumption it takes to live in the Mountain State” (Bluegrass Unlimited). “Old-time” refers to the rural American string band traditions that developed from the meeting of the African banjo and European fiddle in colonial times, traditions that have been well-kept in the mountain communities of Appalachia. The Bing Brothers are among West Virginia’s most formidable and respected keepers of this priceless musical legacy.

Black Powder Express

From the hills of East Kentucky in Magoffin County, and bringing the sounds of Appalachia to life. The Black Powder Express is a traditional bluegrass band that sings and tells stories about a simplistic time in life. They play traditional style music along with their own original material written by members of the group. Their unique sound sets them apart in our own right.
