What people are saying....

By Geoff Ruppert:

Barb and I, along with good friend Rod Stabler, were very fortunate last night to get over to Lucketts Va. for Bluegrass at the Old Schoolhouse. We went to see Valerie Smith & Liberty Pike, and what a fantastic show it was! If you want an authentic acoustic music experience, seek out Liberty Pike. Every one of the band members is a master at their craft. Valerie's voice was powerful and soulful. Bass player Tom Gray just improves with age, in fact he defies age with his enthusiasm. Banjo guy Joe Zauner rocked his breaks and then faded to backup perfectly as only great banjo players do. Lisa Kay Howard played sweet mandolin breaks and fiddle player Wally Hughes tied it all together and really set the mood for a spooky Halloween duet with his fiddle while Valerie sang. Get out and see this group if they come anywhere near you and get down to Lucketts on Saturday nights for bluegrass, the level of artistry is really stunning and the people are so friendly!
