Snowshoe Wine & Jazz Festival, Aug 17th & 18th

With an average annual snowfall of 180 inches and an elevation peak at 4,848 feet above sea level, Snowshoe Mountain Resort is a well-known winter destination for all things snow, especially downhill skiing and snowboarding. As the mercury rises and the snow begins to melt, the mountain doesn’t rest, for Snowshoe’s summer programs are just […]

Poor Taters @ The Sweet Shoppe, July 21

Upcoming at the Sweet Shop this month (JULY 21) will be the Lewisburg debut of the fun-loving Poor Taters, a delightful mixture of oldtime, bluegrass, folk, rock and jazz. Having known most of these boys since they were just barely past being edgy little punk teenagers, I have followed their musical careers and supported any […]

Red Audio @ The Sweet Shoppe, Sept 15th

By: LBSPY / Category: Blog, Christina Entenmann, Music Reviews

On July 13th, a rock band that “plays anywhere once” came to Lewisburg’s Sweet Shoppe for the first time. The night crowd started light but by around midnight had the bartenders running. The band’s name is Red Audio and they sound like a British garage band that incorporates electronic and rock. The crowd was dancing […]

By: LBSPY / Category: Julian Levine, Music Reviews

The Wild Rumpus, Issue #4

By: LBSPY / Category: Leah Deitz, Music Reviews

Stomp Grass is not blue grass. Let me preface this. It does not sound like bluegrass. It does not look like bluegrass and it certainly does not dance like blue grass. Far from it, instead The Wild Rumpus and their original West Virginia inspired sound has a punk rock county slant which I would describe […]

Merlefest 25, Issue #6

By: LBSPY / Category: Allan Sizemore, Blog, Music Reviews

Music. Friends. Fun. I guess if you have those three things, there’s not much more you can ask for. This year, the 25th Annual Merlefest held in Wilkesboro, NC had all of that, in spades. As usual, a strong party of friends from Greenbrier Valley made the trek for this 5 day festival of camping, […]

Greg Brown: Review, Issue #7

Greg Brown’s roots were, in part, sprouted from an electric guitar-playin’ mama, and banjo-strumming grandpa and a dad who was a Holy Roller preacher in the gospel- and music-infused section of Iowa called Hacklebarney. His cleverly crafted music was bound to flower. Brown traveled to New York and threw himself into the “hootenanny” scene and […]

Last Saturday the culmination of the Got Country Class competition was held in the lush surroundings of the Greenbrier Hotel. We from LBSPY attended, and were entertained by the finalists, of which the remaining ten had been whittled down from a staggering 130. After several consecutive evenings of friendly rivalry, the ten finalists were there […]

Cuddle Magic and Anais Mitchell: Review, Issue #5

To culminate one last sweet-toothed caloric intake of the Chocolate Festival, I attended Carnegie’s concert of singer/songwriter ANAIS MITCHELL and opening band CUDDLE MAGIC. I found the 6-piece opening ensemble to be a bit of a slightly robotic breath of fresh air, if those two descriptions can possibly match in one’s mind. The stage and […]
