Helen Highwater Stringband
These are musicians who have performed for decades. Their music is rooted but not frozen, recognizable but not predictable, comfy but not smug. It’s also a steel-railed groove of steam-powered drive—Gid Tanner and Bill Monroe stoking the coal car and one band barreling ahead, eyes around the curve. The band is made up of David Grier on guitar, Missy Raines on bass, Mike Compton on mandolin, Shad Cobb on fiddle and power vocals from all four.
The Ransom Notes
Schooled in the precision of classical music and steeped in homegrown tradition, The Ransom Notes epitomize the phrase “best of both worlds.” Drawing inspiration from genres such as bluegrass, folk, Americana, and Celtic fiddling, this eclectic group has enthralled audiences for nearly two decades. The band never fails to amaze with its exceptional talent on a multitude of different instruments including fiddle, cello, mandolin, guitar, banjo, and dobro. In addition to instrumental prowess, The Ransom Notes inspire audiences with soulful vocals that are considered by many to be one of the best features of this talented ensemble.
