The Boston Globe sums it up, “Little band. Big Sound.” No more needs to be said. Although the only thing “little” about Sirsy is that there is just two of them. The rest is bigger than balls on a buffalo. Listen to the power in their latest recording “Coming Into Frame”. You can feel it. It’s crank-up the volume music, even when the heartfelt ballads kick in. And why so much power? Melanie Krahmer on drums and vocals, Rich Libutti on guitar. That’s why. And, according to Sirsy a lot of credit goes to Grammy-winning producers, Paul Kolderie and Sean Slade (Hole, Radiohead, Dresden Dolls, Pixies). According to Melanie, known as Mel to fans and friends alike, “Our fans have said that the energy of our live show hasn’t translated onto our previous recordings. They are going to notice a different energy level on this record and it’s because of how Paul and Sean worked with us.”

Stars of the Lowe Vintage Radio Show, John Boy and Billy recording artists, and masters of primitive bluegrass, The South Carolina Broadcasters bring southern music at its finest to the stage. Their razor sharp harmonies, exceptional multi-instrumentation, and fabulous song selection will have listeners riveted to their seats. This unique trio has put their own spin on the music of the foothills. They’ve been members of The Smokey Valley Boys and Roan Mountain Hilltoppers yet they’re not looking backward. Between Andy Edmonds’ and David Sheppard’s ability to write a new song that sounds old and Ivy Sheppard’s prowess for digging up obscure field recordings, The Broadcasters most always have new songs in the works. Their recent critically acclaimed release “Tell Me Truly” features a broad and mature mix of sounds ranging from Surry County bluegrass to Carter Family country and even the Cajun sounds of Lafayette. Audiences wherever they go...

Join us for Local Music Night at Ashland Coffee & Tea and welcome back Matt Blanton to our venue! Born and raised in Ashland, Virginia, Matt is a singer/songwriter and classical musician. Highly influenced by his study of the classical guitar, Matt has cultivated a unique approach to playing and writing on the steel string acoustic guitar, which in turn has led to developing a sound of his own. With his distinguished guitar style, combined with his introspective lyrics and smooth vocals, Matt creates songs that differ drastically in sound and feel. Ranging from heavy hitting blues-rock to slow-pulsing melodic ballads, each song retains its own identity while lending itself to Matt’s original overall sound. Matt has studied music at the Shenandoah University Music Conservatory and currently continues his studies at VCU.
