It's all about that vocal, 'bout that vocal....which are high priority in this band! You will hear some of the best harmony in bluegrass today! Obscure, original, and classic bluegrass and country songs are done with heartfelt conviction and sometimes...even tears!! If you like straight ahead "high powered" bluegrass...and deep country, then you're not gonna wanna miss this show!

Review: Donna Hughes - From the Heart

Donna Hughes, whose unstrained, contented voice has long appealed to me, has recently released an album, From the Heart, which shows her heart is also perfectly unstrained and contented. If you love bluegrass for its bitter stories or strained harmonies, this album is not for you. This is a long-playing view of contentment and ease.

She is joined on this album by Scott Vestal, Tim Stafford, Zak McLamb, Rob Ickes, Jenee Fleenor, Cory Piatt, Emily Hatley, Lucas White, Greg Luck, Jason Burleson and John Catchings. Andy Kearns is the auctioneer on “Gone.”

2014 - A Year's End Review

It’s hard to believe another year has passed so quickly! As the year kicks off, it’s time to take stock of 2014 before looking ahead to where we’re going in 2015. It’s easy to forget everything we’ve accomplished in the past year, but when you summarize 2014 in one post, it turns out to be a whole lot.

So here we go, HVBA’s 2014 Year in Review:

The year 2014 was a major milestone for the HVBA as it marked our 20th Anniversary as an organization. The HVBA is chartered as a 501(c)3 not-for-profit arts and educational organization and our mission has always been to educate the public about Bluegrass music and to provide musicians opportunities to meet with one another and share their love of Bluegrass music.

A "Thank You" From A Member

It isn't often that a member of the HVBA takes the time to write a note like the one printed below. Needless to say, this acknowledgement is greatly appreciated. Craig Marshall is a member who, himself, is a great supporter of the HVBA. Thank you, Craig!

To All Those Who Make HVBA Possible:
As we close our 20th HVBA anniversary year, this is a good time to reflect on how strong and successful our association is, what we've enjoyed, and how it is all made possible. Certainly this was another great year with the best performers, some even nationally recognized, at our showcases and concerts.

Review: Buddy Merriam & Back Roads - The Farm

Buddy Merriam’s latest CD, The Farm is a delight. All the songs and instrumentals are original, except for 2 Bill Monroe songs, "Stay Away From Me" and "Bluest Man In Town," ably sung by guitarist Matt Riley. Riley also sings 3 of his own compositions, the title song "The Farm," "Live Free Or Die," and "Snakehead Mandolin." Kathy DeVine guests singing "In These Hills" by Long Island singer/songwriter Susan Bach. Five of Buddy's instrumentals round out the CD.
