How about some music to go with your bourbon?

In 2018, we welcomed four amazing bands to the Burn stage. Our cyclists were treated to a couple nights of good ole pickin' and jug band tunes — Bluegrass style! Here is the exciting lineup for 2019.

Friday Night

Small Batch Band - Friday Evening (1st band)

Small Batch is a five-piece collective of that clusterfolk variety that steals handily from country, bluegrass, folk and old- timey music until it’s convenient to ignore those same forms in search of some other feeling or sound. There is more than a little harmony that happens all the time. Also: expletives, booze songs, songs about cheating, family tales and stories of love and hate. Read more about Small Batch here on their website!

Buffalo Wabs & the price hill hustle - Friday evening (2nd band)

The Cincinnati-based ensemble Buffalo Wabs (as in ‘mobs’) and the Price Hill Hustle can be best described as ‘American’-- from the mountains to Music Row, blues-gospel to traditional country, the Hustle combines parts of the American-born genre catalogue to create an energetic experience every single night.

Scott T. Smith is a young folk/soul singer from Hurricane, WV. Being from West Virginia he has a deep love for traditional Folk Music and Bluegrass, but in a household where he grew up listening to Soul/R&B greats, the two worlds collide in his music!

Relic Bluegrass - Saturday evening (2nd band)

Relic is a Louisville, Ky based band with a sound often summed up by the title track of their debut album “Livin’ in the Past”. Louisville, once the epicenter of bluegrass music, bears a rich history of bringing the genre right up to the cutting edge. With their songwriting and multi-genre fusion, Relic is part of a revival of this platform, blending rich vocal harmonies with colorful instrumentation. The core of the group includes twin brothers Aaron Bibelhauser (on banjo) and Adam Bibelhauser (on bass), guitarist Chuck Sharp, mandolinist Dave Howard and Tavis Conley on drums. Relic’s original material and interpretations of Flatt and Scruggs, the Osborne Brothers, and the Dillards, may sit right along side adaptations of Merle Haggard, Buck Owens, Elton John or the Beatles. The Relic sound is equally progressive as it is rooted in tradition. Click here to learn more!

The beautiful countryside and majestic horses can’t be beat. Base Camp offered a great place to relax with entertainment and bonfires. We’re hoping for more food truck variety next year! We’ll be back.
