J Roddy Walston and the Business

Saturday, September 2nd, at 9:00PM
Specializing in a classic-sounding Southern rock/Americana style that emphasizes songwriting and danceable kinetics instead of empty hipness and trendy pop gimmicks, J. Roddy Walston and the Business have returned with “The Wanting”, their first new single in four years, and the follow-up to their break-out 2013 album, Essential Tremors. Between albums, the band ceaselessly toured the US, opening for The Lumineers and Cage the Elephant while performing riotous sets at Lollapalooza, Newport Folk Festival, Bonnaroo and more. They also rocked featured TV performances on Late Night with David Letterman, Conan and an Austin City Limits episode which they shared with The Black Keys. The band's much anticipated fourth studio album is scheduled for release in fall 2017.

Yonder Mountain String Band 

Saturday, September 2nd, at 7:00PM
Yonder Mountain String Band’s first new album in two years, LOVE. AIN’T LOVE is undeniably the Colorado-based progressive bluegrass outfit’s most surprising, creative, and yes, energetic studio excursion to date. Songs like “Chasing My Tail” and “Alison” are rooted in tradition but as current as tomorrow, animated by electrifying performance, vivid production, and the modernist power that has made Yonder one of the most popular live bands of their generation. Melding sophisticated songcraft, irrepressible spirit, and remarkable instrumental ability, LOVE. AIN’T LOVE is a testament to Yonder Mountain String Band’s organic, dynamic, and intensely personal brand of contemporary bluegrass-fueled Americana.

Tim Reynolds and TR3

Saturday, September 2nd, at 5:30PM
With a musical career spanning more than thirty-five years, guitarist and sonic innovator Tim Reynolds is known for his masterful command of melody and timing and for his uncanny ability to improvise on any instrument he touches. Having explored most musical styles, from rock, jazz and blues to classical and reggae, Reynolds’ wide-ranging musical versatility is evident each time he picks up his acoustic or electric guitar. Technically brilliant, yet emotionally honest, Reynolds’ music is inspired and authentic. He first played with TR3 in the 1980's, then resurrected the trio about a decade ago. They've been touring and creating unique, funky music together ever since.

Robert Randolph and the Family Band

Friday, September 1st, at 9:00PM
Robert Randolph --named one of the 100 Greatest Guitarists of all time by Rolling Stone-- and his Family Band have perfected their own unique sound with a blend of rock, funk, soul, jazz, jam, and even gospel. By the early 2000’s, the group’s unique sound and their leader’s revolutionary guitar work soon had them packing New York City clubs. Their first album, 2002’s Live at the Wetlands, was recorded at the now defunct jam band haven, and was followed by four studio albums and another live set, each widening the band’s audience --they’ve long been regulars on the festival circuit-- and broadening their stylistic range as well. The band’s label debut for Sony Masterworks, “Got Soul” was released earlier this year and features Anthony Hamilton, Darius Rucker, and Cory Henry.

Porch 40

Sunday, September 3rd, at 3:00PM

They have shared the stage and performed with Blues Traveler, The Doobie Brothers, The Marshall Tucker Band, REO Speedwagon, Leftover Salmon, The Suffers, The Nth Power, Lukas Nelson and Promise of the Real, Dirty Dozen Brass Band, and more. They have performed at prominent music festivals such as Oskar Blues Burning Can, Georgia National Fair, Bele Chere, etc. They were here at Snowshoe for Ballhooter 2017 and rocked so hard we wanted to bring them back for more.

Shane Meade and the Sound

Sunday, September 3rd, at 5:30PM
Shane Meade is a gifted singer songwriter and catalyst behind the soul-infused folk rock project Shane Meade & the Sound. Hailing from Elkins, West Virginia (just over the mountain from Snowshoe) Shane is a self-taught late bloomer who borrowed an old guitar from his father and began playing and writing songs in 2000. His music captivates the imagination, and audiences connect to his inspirational lyrics and universal subject matter. The Sound, formed in 2005, combines infectious vocals and melodic hooks with feel good jam-based grooves, and has the uncanny ability of turning even the largest of venues into an intimate musical experience. The response to their live performances has triggered a growing consensus, that this band is coming into their own, and truly defining their style of music.

Matt Mullins and the Bringdowns

This up and coming local favorite is about as smooth as Appalachian shine! Matt Mullins & the Bringdowns are an Appalachian Rock band that have found a niche all their own. The stories in their songs are almost as diverse as the influences you hear in the music. Fueled by a driving rhythm section made up of drummer Dylan McInturff and bassist Bill Fraley, Stuart Hill creates sonic tapestries with his guitar that will leave you in awe. Add to that the lyrical prowess of raspy voiced singer/guitarist Matt Mullins and you have an eclectic mix of genres that pushes the boundaries of alt-country.
