Batesville, VA  22924 Map

The Buzzard Hollow Boys are back! Members: Tim Anderson, Jeff Saine, Kurt Dressel, Sonny Layne, and sometimes Matt Wyatt.

Just where in the blue blazes is Buzzard Hollow? According to the band's promo materials it's located somewhere between the Dust Bowl and the Mississippi Delta. Or maybe it's situated in a dark hollow of the "old, weird America," that phrase coined by music writer Greil Marcus to describe the pre-World War II music best exemplified by the murder ballads, train songs, and jug band stomps. You don't want to miss their performance!

Willie DE, a nationally touring young artist based in Central Virginia, blends folk, blues, and a dash of jazz to create a fresh, original sound. For this show, he'll be joined by bandmates Randall Pharr on bass and Stuart Gunter on drums.

Willie has shared the stage with and opened for such top-flight musicians as the North Mississippi All-stars, David Olney & Sergio Webb, Ivan & Alyosha, Alash Ensemble, Eric Taylor, and The Hackensaw Boys. His new sophomore album, Thunder Train, benefits from his recent study of jazz guitar as he merges it into the folk-blues style of his original tunes.

Self taught with some direction from her dad, Micheal Giordano from local new grass band, The Weedeaters, Nicole sings and plays the guitar with a folky original twist.

She began singing alto in her hometown church choir at an early age and continued to sing in various venues throughout the years including a local top forty band in the 80's called "Hotwire" with Tim Reynolds, to the Sweet Adelines and Richmond Symphony choruses and numerous local folk bands.

Saturday music: Travis Elliott

Saturday music: Travis Elliott

Dec 23, 6:30pm - Dec 23, 9:00pm

The Batesville Market
6624 Plank Rd
Batesville, VA  22924 Map

By his mid thirties, singer/songwriter/guitarist Travis Elliott has been around—touring the United States and Carribbean, opening for regional and nation acts, and of course, his home, Charlottesville, Virginia. His music has been described as pop, alternative, a little folky, rock, Americana, and most of all, catchy. His first EP in 2005 was hailed by Charlottesville’s The Hook as a “modern rock epic,” and in 2008 he earned Best Solo Artist of the Year by C’ville Weekly. In 2010, Travis released his first full length album, Swan Dive, which spent a week in iTunes’ New & Noteworthy section.

Travis’ ability to bring in various musicians for a last minute gig gives his music a fresh angle and new sound on any given night. Lately, however, he has found righteous consistency with the added guitar playing from Tucker Rogers, thundering piano and vocals/harmony from Kristen Bowden and modest cajon percussion from Drex Weaver.

His melodies follow the natural rhythm of life, and his lyrics speak to the soul with passion...and don’t expect to get his songs out of your head, either.
