Performing Live at BLBF:


Banjo Earth

Banjo musician Andy Eversole took his banjo and traveled from his home in Greensboro to China, where he planned to collaborate with traditional Chinese musicians and work on blending both styles of music in perfect harmony.

In the process, he did more than create a new multi-cultural sound. He shared the banjo with many who were unfamiliar with the instrument’s unique brand of music, and made lasting connections with people he met on the streets of Beijing.


Wilson Springs Hotel Band

Hailing from all parts of Virginia, The Wilson Springs Hotel is rooted in country, folk, and bluegrass. They released their self-titled debut album in the fall of 2021, and are set to tour throughout 2022. The music plays into the traditional roles within the genres, but is also taken to a unique sound that simply is The Wilson Springs Hotel. New Grass, Rockabilly, Country Rock, the list doesn’t really end. The Wilson Springs Hotel are Jacob Ritter (lead vocals, acoustic guitar), Victor McManus (electric guitar, banjo), Brendan Boylan (fiddle), Sebastien Richard (bass), and Pat Bowdring (drums).
