Jeff Brown & Still Lonesome put a vintage spin on bluegrass, playing in the style Dr. Ralph Stanley once referred to as “mountain music.” A veteran of the bluegrass scene, Jeff Brown has played with Stanley, Larry Sparks and many others. Still Lonesome is rounded out by Austin Brown on bass, Nick Goad on mandolin, and Rod Smith on banjo.


A roots proud hillbilly band, the Cabin Creek Boys hail from Southwest Virginia and Northwest North Carolina, where they learned how to rouse audiences with an abundant combination of hoedowns, two-step, waltzes, bluegrass and old time. Led by multi-instrumentalist and award-winning husband and wife duo Chris and Erika Testerman of Lansing, North Carolina, the band also includes guitarist Jackson Cunningham, Trish Kilby Fore on clawhammer banjo, and Jerry Steinberg on bass.


Tickets to this event are available online at and locally at the Giles County Convention and Visitors Bureau (540) 921-2079.  Tickets cost $15 in advance, $20 after May 31, and $10 for children 12 and under.
