The Barn House Concert Series with Wild Ponies and Anse Rigby
June 17 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm$30
Although they’re based in Nashville, Wild Ponies have always looked to Southwest Virginia where bandmates Doug and Telisha Williams were both born and raised for inspiration. There, in mountain towns like Galax, old-time American music continues to thrive, supported by
a community of fiddlers, flat-pickers, and fans. Wild Ponies pay tribute to that powerful music and rugged landscape with their most recent
release, Galax, a stripped-back album that nods to the band’s history while still pushing forward. Doug and Telisha took some of their favorite musicians from Nashville (Fats Kaplin, Will Kimbrough, Neilson Hubbard and Audrey Spillman) and met up with revered Old-Time players
from Galax, Virginia (Snake Smith, Kyle Dean Smith, and Kilby Spencer). Recorded in the shed behind Dougs old family farm in the Appalachians (steps away from the site where Doug and Telisha were married), it returns Wild Ponies to their musical and geographic roots.
Opening for Wild Ponies will be Mississippi singer-songwriter Anse Rigby making a return visit to “The Barn.”
All beverages; beer, soft drinks and water are free at “The Barn” concerts. Beverage donations are suggested and will go to a local charity.
Last House on the Block is the designated charity for this show.
