An Evening of Blues: Damon Fowler & Jarekus Singleton at The State Theatre of Culpeper

You wonder if there might have been a mistake on his birth certificate. The way this guy plays guitar, his given name should have been Demon instead of Damon Fowler. The fiery guitarist’s slide, dobro and lap steel riffs have been snapping heads around since his ’99 debut, Riverview Drive, produced and played on by legendary rocker Rick Derringer.
But as he has proved with a string of albums for Blind Pig beginning with ’09′s Sugar Shack, Fowler doesn’t need any help getting his message across. A blend of sacred steel, backwater blues and howling, greasy swamp rock, Fowler’s music is a primal, atavistic sound that makes the hair on the back of your neck stand up. His solo gigs with his skin tight power trio have converted rooms full of strangers into a loyal congregation who now attend his services regularly, and his exposure as half of the twin guitar attack (with J.P. Soars) of the newly convened blues supergroup Southern Hospitality and their March 2013 release Easy Livin’ has given him evangelical status among the faithful.

Blame Canada: A Tribute to Rush playing at the State Theatre of Culpeper

Blame Canada is the premiere Rush tribute band in the Washington, DC area. Their shows are fun for both the casual Rush fan who likes the radio hits like Tom Sawyer, Closer to the Heart and Limelight, and the Rush geeks who wants to hear the deeper tracks and songs Rush hasn’t played in concert in years. They play old Rush, new Rush, and everything in between.
“Best title of a tribute project, ever. Even us Canadians will forgive the slight when the band’s this damned good. Your drummer is sublime, amazing. Kudos & cheers from the Great White North!”

Judah & the Lion with special guest Joseph at The State Theatre of Culpeper

All individual ticket prices include a $1.00 Historic Preservation Fee.
Benefit to support Young Life Culpeper
“Friend of a friend” is the way it all came together, three very different people from very different places, united by a shared love of music. As a band, Judah & the Lion owes much to fate and to the small town feel of Nashville, the city that brought the trio together from scattered parts of the country. The three met while attending Belmont University in the city, introduced to each other through music and mutual friends.
“We all had similar stories, despite the fact that we’d grown up in different places,” explains mandolin player Brian Macdonald, “Judah is the Southerner, I’m the Chicago city slicker, and Nate is the laidback, bearded Rocky Mountain guy.”

Nocoda : An Evening of the Music of Led Zeppelin

As if forced through some 3rd dimensional Zeppelin wormhole that could not fit the big hair, the larger than life manager, or even the keyboards….the electrifying Nocoda came into being.
Nocoda is a new breed of tributation built for explosive live delivery of the mighty Zep’s music in a raw and mesmerizing way…but without the typical tribute jazz.
Catch these hammer gods before they are called to another dimension in need of Nocoda’s magic filled air energized by hypnotic vocals, face melting solos and thundering rhythms.
Nocoda….it’s a zeppelin thing.

Rhonda Vincent, The Queen of Bluegrass to perform at The State Theatre of Culpeper

Bluegrass vocalist and fiddler Rhonda Vincent began her professional music career at the age of five, playing drums with her family’s band, the Sally Mountain Show. She picked up the mandolin at eight and the fiddle at ten, performing with the family band at festivals on weekends. After appearing on TNN’s nationally televised You Can Be a Star program in her mid-twenties, Vincent struck out on her own, singing with the Grand Ole Opry’s Jim Ed Brown, eventually leading to a deal with Rebel Records. Her work with Brown and her Rebel recordings caught the attention of Giant Nashville’s president, James Stroud, who signed Vincent to record two contemporary country albums. After her time at Giant, she moved to Rounder Records, and demonstrated her passion for the traditional music she grew up with, on Back Home Again.

A car accident in December 1999 kept her from a planned trip to Nashville for auditions, so she hired her band (unusually named the Rage) through the Internet. Rhonda Vincent & the Rage have gained popularity at bluegrass festivals since their formation, playing hard-driving, high-energy contemporary bluegrass music. Her 2001 album, The Storm Still Rages, was nominated for seven International Bluegrass Music Association awards, including Female Vocalist of the Year, while fiddle player Michael Cleveland and banjo player Tom Adams earned nominations in their respective instrumental categories. A three-year unbroken string of IBMA Female Vocalist of the Year awards led to the 2003 release of One Step Ahead, another tour, and another well-deserved showering of critical praise.

Recorded in front of a hometown crowd in St. Louis, Ragin’ Live arrived in 2005, followed by All American Bluegrass Girl in 2006, Good Thing Going in 2008, and Destination Life in 2009. After parting ways with longtime label Rounder Records, Vincent released Taken in 2010, and followed it with 2011′s Your Money and My Good Looks, a duets album with Gene Watson. Released in 2012, Sunday Mornin’ Singin’: Live! was a gospel-themed album and DVD recorded at the 100-year-old Greentop United Methodist Church in Greentop, Missouri, where Vincent first began singing in public as a child. Early in 2014, Vincent returned with Only Me, a double-disc set that showcased her bluegrass and country roots.

Volunteer Tree Planting at the K9 Gunner Dog Park Buffer

Please help us keep up the good work! We'll have about 50 trees and shrubs, plus more than 100 wildflowers to plant at the Minnieville Road buffer by the County Dog Park.
