The Wildmans at Hotel Floyd – Music in the Mountains Series
June 28, 2018 : 6:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
The up and coming young acoustic string band, The Wildmans, come from the hills of Floyd, Virginia, in the heart of the Appalachian mountain music tradition. From campsite jamming at festivals and fiddler’s conventions and classical music education comes the foundation for musical exploration that sets this group apart, taking the audience on a musical journey that reflects the growth and passion of these talented young musicians.
The band features the precocious talents of siblings Eli on mandolin and Aila on fiddle and vocals, family friend and award winning old time banjo player Victor Furtado, all backed up by mom Deb Wildman on bass. Highly skilled instrumentals and soulful vocals applied to traditional tunes with a smattering of old time, bluegrass, blues, and jazz combine to create a fresh new sound – old tunes fueled by young spirit.
