Ragged Mountain String Band
Since their formation in 2012, Ragged Mountain String Band has engaged audiences at countless concerts and festival stages like the Festy, the Richmond Bluegrass Festival, and Red Wing Roots, where they play as the festival’s square dance band. With four full-length albums to their name, the five-piece outfit specializes in Appalachian string band music while playing barn-burning breakdowns, swinging rags, and classic Stanley Brothers tunes–harmonies and all. Although they appeal to roots music and string band lovers, RMSB doesn’t confine themselves to any one genre. At a show you can hear them cover a range of music from the Clash to the Grateful Dead to Taj Mahal. You can catch RMSB every Tuesday at the Whiskey Jar in Charlottesville.
