Mountain Heart at the Rives Theatre in Martinsville, Va.
As one of the most highly awarded ensembles ever assembled, Mountain Heart, or members of the band, have either won or been nominated for Grammy's, ACM, CMA, and multiple IBMA Awards. Led by lead singer and Bassett native Josh Shilling, they have appeared on the revered stage of the Grand Ole Opry in excess of 125 times and have shared the stage with acts ranging from Lynyrd Skynyrd, Montgomery Gentry, Merle Haggard, George Jones and Brad Paisley to Alison Krauss, Tony Rice, The Avett Brothers, Yonder Mountain Stringband, Levon Helm, John Fogerty and Patty Loveless.
Mountain Heart's musical virtuosity, unmatched energy, and keen sense of entertainment dynamics have helped them to forge a highly unique sound, and stage show, which appeals to an incredibly wide variety of musical tastes. From large outdoor folk music and bluegrass festivals, to sold-out arena shows opening for Southern Rock icons, Lynyrd Skynyrd, to co-headlining concerts with the acoustic guitar legend, Tony Rice, Mountain Heart always makes an undeniable connection to an audience, leaving them on their feet. In short, this rare combination of abilities makes Mountain Heart one of the most versatile acts ever assembled.
After Jack will open the show. After Jack is an award-winning, all-female folk/bluegrass trio hailing from southwest Virginia. The trio met at the Blue Ridge Dinner Theatre, where they worked as actors and musicians. This performance background means After Jack combines great showmanship with their incredible musicianship and three-part harmonies. The girls switch instruments constantly throughout a concert, playing fiddle, banjo, accordion, washboard, ukulele, guitar, mandolin, oboe, percussion, upright bass and more. It truly is a fun, family-friendly, foot-stomping show.
