PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
This old-time music and dance spectacular will showcase the most basic form of music, balladry. Ballads are songs that tell stories. Rich Kirby and Elizabeth LaPrelle, two of the most respected ballad singers in the Crooked Road region today, will bring this a capella tradition to life. Kirby both plays the banjo and sings traditional ballads he learned from his grandmother, the respected ballad singer Addie Graham. La Prelle is perhaps the best-known singer of Appalachian ballads of her generation and has performed for public radio’s flagship programs A Prairie Home Companion and Mountain Stage.
The fiddle and banjo were once the only instruments heard along the Appalachian frontier, and the ancient sound these two iconic instruments make together is still heard along The Crooked Road. Award winning fiddler Eddie Bond and clawhammer banjo player Debbie Yates will demonstrate the old fiddle and banjo duet styles on some haunting tunes from the tradition.
The stripped-down sound of one or two instruments playing fiddle or banjo tunes would sometimes not suit an occasion, such as when a family had a get-together. At such times, songs were called for, and perhaps the most beloved of all songcrafters were the three members of the original Carter Family, A. P. Carter, Sara Carter, and Maybelle Carter. Eddie Bond (autoharp), Rich Kirby (banjo), Elizabeth LaPrelle (vocals), and Mac Traynham (guitar) will play a selection of Carter Family classics in the old-time style that the Carters made famous in first recordings in Bristol 90 years ago.
Enjoy a spirited but all in good fun old time banjo contest between crackerjack players Debbie Yates, Tyler Hughes, Jared Boyd, Mac Traynham, Rich Kirby, and Julie Shepherd Powell. The audience-selected winner gets bragging rights.
The concert will also include a tip of the hat to some of the most historic musicians of The Crooked Road such as the songs of the legendary banjo player Dock Boggs performed by Big Stone Gap’s Tyler Hughes and tunes once performed by the legendary Galax area fiddler Emmet Lundy played by Eddie Bond.
As new instruments (guitar, mandolin, and bass, among others) became more widely available in Appalachia, larger string bands became commonplace in the region. The old time musicians already listed will be joined by bassist Debbie Bramer to demonstrate the classic string band sound. The ultimate calling of a great string band is to lay down a great groove for flatfoot dancing and you’ll see some of the many variations in dance styles from the likes of Julie Shepherd Powell, Elizabeth LaPrelle, Eddie Bond, and Debbie Bramer as they turn the show into a barn dance.

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
Born in 1961 in Seattle, Washington, Mark O’Connor at age 13 won the Grand Master Fiddler Championship, a record that still stands. In subsequent years he won national titles on three instruments: fiddle, mandolin, and guitar. O’Connor has studied with some of the greatest players to hold the instrument, such as Benny Thomasson, Stephane Grappelli, Isaac Stern, and Itzhak Perlman. And today O’Connor is considered among the greatest living players on the instrument. Some of O’Connor’s albums—such as his collaborations with cellist Yo-Yo Ma and bassist Edgar Meyer, Appalachia Waltz and the Grammy Award winning Appalachian Journey—have straddled musical boundaries between classical music and acoustic roots music. These and other albums have showcased O’Connor’s compositions performed by the fiddler alongside some of the most skilled instrumentalists of his generation. Other albums featuring O’Connor’s compositions were recorded by leading classical orchestras and ensembles. He has produced a number of books of music instruction known as the O’Connor Method. He has contributed his compositions and his performances to accompany ballet and dance recitals and film soundtracks. After recording approximately 45 albums on his own that have sold millions of copies, O’Connor and his family—featuring his wife Maggie O’Connor (vocals, fiddle), son Forrest O’Connor (vocals, mandolin), future daughter-in-law Kate Lee (vocals, fiddle), as well as friends Joe Smart (guitar) and Geoff Saunders (bass)—in 2016 released Coming Home, one of the most popular bluegrass albums in recent years. In addition to bluegrass, O’Connor has played on hundreds of country music sessions and has participated in improvisatory jamming on albums of hot jazz and swing music.

Mark O’Connor’s 2016 album Coming Home recently won the Grammy Award for Best Bluegrass Album.

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
Today in the 68th year of his legendary career, Jesse McReynolds is renowned for being part of the successful bluegrass duo Jim and Jesse and also for his influential mandolin style. Born and raised near Coeburn, Virginia, in the small community of Carfax, Jesse and his older brother Jim grew up surrounded by traditional music (their grandfather Charlie McReynolds, for instance, was part of the Bull Mountain Moonshiners string band that recorded at Victor Records’ legendary recording sessions in Bristol, Tennessee/Virginia in 1927). From the duo’s beginnings in 1947 through the death of Jim McReynolds, Jim and Jesse recorded for such record companies as Capitol, Columbia, Epic, Rounder, and their own Old Dominion label, and the brothers had several hits on the country chart. In addition to appearing on live radio and television shows, Jim & Jesse joined the Grand Ole Opry on March 2, 1964. Their harmony was exceptional, with Jim's high tenor augmenting Jesse's deeper lead vocals. Additionally, Jim played guitar while Jesse played mandolin. Early in their career, Jesse developed a "McReynolds style" technique on the mandolin, combining cross-picking and split-string playing to permit fast execution of intricate melodic patterns. Throughout their career the brothers were backed by the Virginia Boys, comprised of various top-notch musicians. Jim died in 2002, and Jesse has carried on the Jim & Jesse tradition, playing throughout the world with a new version of the Virginia Boys. Jesse’s grandson Garrett McReynolds took Jim’s place in the band on guitar and tenor vocals. Other musicians include banjoist Gary Reece, guitarist Larry Carney, bassist Joseph Smith, and fiddler Steve Thomas.

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
As they say on their town website, “there’s always something happening in St. Paul. Join us downtown by the banks of the beautiful Clinch River for an event celebrating the history and the rejuvenation of St. Paul. We’ll enjoy libations at the Sugar Hill Brewery and feast on a local bounty farm-to-table style dinner, in front of the soon-to-open Western Front Boutique Hotel. The evening will close with a very special after-dinner concert by Dori Freeman, one of the Crooked Road’s star performers.
We’ve lined up some high-profile culinary personalities to contribute to the evening including SWVA native and nationally acclaimed chef Travis Milton. Milton showcases Appalachia’s fabulous food traditions by presenting them with his own imaginative twist.. He is designing a menu that, as he puts it, “will be humble in heritage, but definitely innovative, especially the entrée. I’ll use what we have locally and what comes from our tradition, but I’ll present it all in a new light.”
Travis’s close friend and mentor, Ronni Lundy, a celebrated food and music writer, will serve as culinary interpreter and storyteller for the evening. Ronni’s warm humor and her deep knowledge of Appalachian food, music, and culture make her a favorite on the speakers’ circuits. Her recent book Victuals: An Appalachian Journey with Recipes (Clarkson Potter 2016) has been lauded by Epicurious.com, Saveur, and Garden & Gun, to name just a few.
After dinner features a concert by Dori Freeman, a young artist whose music—like Travis’s cooking—has deep roots in SWVA. Freeman is an accomplished guitarist and an up-and-coming singer/songwriter garnering attention on the national scene. The granddaughter of musician and pencil artist Willard Gayheart and the daughter of the very talented Scott Freeman, Dori is steeped in the old-timey music of her family. Her music is infused with both her heritage and her imagination. Accompanied by her husband, Nick Falk, the intimate concert features some of the best music our side of Virginia has to offer.

In 1994, she released her debut solo album, Dreams Do Come True, on the Flyin' Cloud label. By 1996, Clearwater was renamed Jeanette Williams and Clearwater.

Jeanette and Johnny both won the Chris Austin Songwriter Contest for bluegrass at Merlefest and in 1999, Jeanette released another solo album, Cherry Blossoms in the Springtime.
