About this Event

Music starts 8 pm

Wild Ponies + Dean Owens

Wild Ponies are on tour in support of their new album Galax. The The touring band consists of Doug and Telisha Williams, Fats Kaplin, Katie Marie, and for some select dates other musicians who played on the Galax sessions. Released August 25th on Gearbox Records, Galax was recorded in a shed behind Doug’s grandparents farm in the mountains of Virginia.

Although they're based in Nashville, Wild Ponies have always looked to Southwest Virginia — where bandmates Doug and Telisha Williams were both born and raised — for inspiration. There, in mountain towns like Galax, old-time American music continues to thrive, supported by a community of fiddlers, flat-pickers, and fans.

Wild Ponies pay tribute to that powerful music and rugged landscape with 2017's Galax, a stripped-back album that nods to the band's history while still pushing forward. Doug and Telisha took some of their favorite musicians from Nashville (Fats Kaplin, Will Kimbrough, Neilson Hubbard and Audrey Spillman) and met up with revered Old-Time players from Galax, Virginia (Snake Smith, Kyle Dean Smith, and Kilby Spencer). Recorded in the shed behind Doug’s old family farm in the Appalachians (steps away from the site where Doug and Telisha were married), it returns Wild Ponies to their musical and geographic root
