Fri. March 21: Boatmen at Sweet Shoppe

Boatmen

The Boatmen will be at The Sweet Shoppe in Downtown Lewisburg on Friday, March 21st, 10pm. Other shows include: March 14 at Foster’s Main Street Tavern in Beckley, 10pm. March 17th at McBee’s Irish Pub in Beckley, 9pm. March 22nd at the Eager Beaver in Hillsboro, 10pm.

This group is made up of close friends and are from the heart of the two Virginias. Easily viewed as bluegrass, rock-grass or a new-grass outfit; The Boatmen fall better into Americana Soulgrass. With diverse instrumentation and the right blend of soaring harmony over top of moonshine anthems, they have created a niche all their own. Into their third year and second album the group has continually expanded its horizons through a non-stop tour schedule and constant support from their close knit fanbase.

Fueled by the phenomenal talents of lead player Randy Gilkey and percussionist Robert Gross; the elite heart-felt songwriting duo of Matt Mullins and Nick Durm round out the current roster of The Boatmen. What started out as a side project in 2009 has now turned into the most successful full-time group for each member’s career.

Crossing genres and sharing the stage with acts like Larry Keel & Natural Bridge, YARN, Tim Reynolds, Ekoostik Hookah and Perpetual Groove to name a few. Sunny Ledfurd, a touring troubadour, stated “These guys appeal to everyone, no matter who you are a fan of musically from Tupac to Willie…Its just great music”. The group has also been invited to play festivals such as Floydfest X, Camp Barefoot, Elysian Fields, Pink Moon and MPMF.
