Rapidly rising on the bluegrass scene, Billboard-charting artists Liam Purcell & Cane Mill Road perform internationally and stateside winning both industry awards and the hearts of fans who turn out to see them at some of the industry’s most iconic venues. Growing up just down the road from Doc Watson, Liam Purcell leads Cane Mill Road as they rock the traditional bluegrass standards they were raised on, yet boldly write original music with roots in the fertile grounds of bluegrass, old-time, and Americana. Named Momentum Band of the Year by IBMA in 2019, Liam Purcell & Cane Mill Road has been recognized as one of the fastest-growing bands in the industry. Their latest release "Roots" debuted at #6 on the Billboard Bluegrass Album Charts, joining their three previous albums for a total of 12 weeks in the Top 10.

East Virginia Blues

Latest Andy Bing Article Available

I love bluegrass music!!! Really love it, but there is so much history about the genre that I know nothing about. Fortunately, Andy Bing and Dick Bowden are actively educating all of us in their own ways and I, for one, feel super-fortunate to have access to their articles on the HVBA website.

This week we learn about Rudy Lyle, a banjo player with Bill Monroe in the 1950's, thanks to the newest article by Andy Bing.

Oops! It's a "Do-Over"
Martha White Trivia Question

Ed. Note: I messed up and forgot to include the list of possible answers to this Trivia. And, now have a second chance to WIN!!!  So sorry for the confusion.

If you don't know about the Martha White/Bluegrass connection already....well, here's your chance to learn more. It's also your chance to have some fun and take a wild (or educated) guess to win this week's contest.

Thanks to Dick Bowden for challenging all of us.

Bluegrass Mountains

Playlist by David Chernack

Cabins and mountains are bluegrass staples!!! It was probably easy for David to find a list of bluegrass titles that are well worth listening to and learning!!! Here they are!!!
We have added four new members to our growing supporters. Diana Krautter and John Gebhards of Newburgh, Ron Raymond of New Paltz, and Bob Chuda of Port Ewen all joined the HVBA. Their support, and yours, helps us spread the word and keep bringing bluegrass music to this community.

Welcome, welcome to Bob, Diana, Ron, and John!!!
