The Wildmans at Dogtown Fri Aug 23 – 8 pm – $3
The up and coming Neo-traditional stringband The Wildmans come from the one stoplight town of Floyd, Virginia, in the heart of the Appalachian mountain music tradition.
Featuring siblings Eli and Aila Wildman, winners of the 2018 Galax Old Fiddler’s Convention First Place in Mandolin and Old Time Fiddle and Best All Around Performer awards respectively, and joined by award winning (1st in Galax 2015 & 2016) clawhammer banjo player Victor Furtado and Sean Newman (of the Dharma Bombs) on bass and vocals.
With a base firmly in old-time roots music, The Wildmans push the genre boundaries with acoustic electric instruments and effects to create a bigger sound, with original jam vibes, modern classics and jazz standards, Bob Dylan and Tedeschi Trucks covers, all alongside favorite old time and original fiddle tunes.
