Rockbridge Vineyards – Winter Uncorked with Michael McCray @ Rockbridge Vineyard
Jan 13 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Since 2002, I have been playing the music I really always have wanted to – original compositions, contemporary folk, and an eclectic mix of traditional Americana, rock, jazz, bluegrass, and whatever else feels right. My style may be a little hard to pin down, but that means there is something in it for everyone. Now after nearly fifteen years as a solo performer, I continue to discover new songs to play and audiences to play them for. Hopefully, you will be part of one soon.

Rockbridge Vineyards – Winter Uncorked with New Plank Road @ Rockbridge Vineyard
Jan 27 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

New Plank Road is an Old Time String Band based in Rockbridge County, VA. Members of the band are Andy Williams (fiddle), Toni Williams (bass), David Winston (banjo), Mary Winston (guitar), and Chris McGrath (fiddle). All of the members, with the exception of Chris, were around in Rockbridge County during the Old Time revival in the late 1970s. They were, in different combinations, members of The Plank Road String Band, Ace Weems and the Fat Meat Boys, and The Hellbenders – all legendary bands from revival period, when Lexington VA was a mecca for those who loved and played this music. New Plank Road plays hard-driving string band tunes that pulse with the memories of good times and great music that put Rockbridge County permanently on the folk music map.
