Virginia Ground

Appalachiaphonic

Fri 10/05/18 1 pm

Virginia Ground plays such a unique style of music that they created their own genre just to describe it: That is the Appalachiaphonic. Around Jamen Denton and his fountainesque songwriting is an ensemble of inventive musicians who create a sound at once electrically novel, and yet hauntingly familiar. With Justin Denton on Drums, Logan Fritz on Bass, Blake Collins on Mandolin, Will Outlaw on Trombone, Ben Smith on Harmonica, Jon McGlocklin on Harmony Vocals, and Jamen on Guitar and Lead Vocals, this group marries sounds from blues and funk to country, rock, and reggae, and then tempers their forceful and fluid sounds with elements of Dixieland and swing to craft the Appalachiaphonic.
