18 STRINGS

18 Strings is an acoustic string trio based out of Morgantown, WV. The three members come from different musical backgrounds spanning everything from jazz to folk, and rock to classical. The result is a seamless fusion of styles that incorporates smart songwriting, tight harmonies, refined instrumental technique, and an airtight groove. Appalachia is a culturally rich region that 18 Strings is proud to call home. Their aesthetic draws from the people of the mountains and their stories. The organic sound of voices, a guitar, mandolin, and upright bass matches the miles of rolling hills that hide centuries of musical tradition.

SOUP CAMEL MUSIC

Soup Camel is a unique band from Morgantown, West Virginia consisting of; Soup Camel, Motown Minnie K, The Beat Doctor, The Lovely Leslie Faye, and Delta Dave. Their music is an eclectic mix of genres that can only be described as Americana. Mostly acoustic in nature, Soup Camel is rooted in jazz/blues from the 1920s to 1940s and beyond with some occasional journeys into world music.

Despite their playful, laid back attitude, these blue-collar Steel City natives are a hot five-piece band that will get audiences out of their seats with an original blend of rough and tough rhythm & blues music. With 14 years, four live albums, and one studio release now under its belt, the band continues to use its twin lead guitar attack to mix classic and contemporary blues styles in performances across the country. Mahajibee regularly receives airplay on HD radio, local and regional blues stations, and blues radio in Europe, Canada, and Australia. The band is currently preparing for the 2014 releases of a live album, New Boots, Vol.1, which provides a retrospective look at the 2013 touring season, and new original and cover material. – See more at: http://www.mahajibeeblues.com/bio/#sthash.vFSQtVPJ.dpuf

NEW DIESEL TRIO

All with West Virginia ties, the New Diesel Trio of Pam, Jason, and Mousetrap have been making music together since 2015. Since then, NDT has looked to the past to find and play the songs you know in a way you understand; old-timey, traditional music with a modern energy, drawing from such influences as The Carter Family, Leadbelly, and Woody Guthrie.

WEST VIRGINIA HITCHERS

For their Arthurdale Heritage debut, we’re pleased to welcome the West Virginia Hitchers to the stage. With a folk-Americana sound, their music will feel right at home in the rolling hills of Preston County.
