Drymill Road is a 4 piece bluegrass band from Winchester Virginia.
The band includes: Robert Mabe on Banjo, Sean Loomis on Guitar, Doug Ross on Mandolin, and David Hurt on Bass.
Focusing on high energy and heartfelt original material, the band also plays traditional numbers and has some very interesting takes on classics from
Led Zeppelin, Hank Williams, Bob Dylan, The Beatles, and more!
Drymill Road crafts old-timey newgrass/bluegrass-tinged goodness marked by upbeat banjo, perky mandolin and wildly harmonizing vocals!
Overall, it’s chipper, charming, spirited good time music that’ll take your somewhere down the tranquility of a back road then the next song will sling you into the heart of a raucous party to sell out crowds. A mighty fine musical time!
The band brings a full-blown entertainment experience to the stage with some very different blends of old, new, traditional, surprising twists and turns of musicality and phrasing. The beauty of it is to not expect to hear “NewGrass” or some far-out translation of the basic form. The value is in the entertainment package. They’ll transport you down a road – that’s ‘Older than the Hills.
In addition to playing music festivals and concert halls year round, Drymill Road has played the Canadian Embassy and had the honor of playing Carnegie Hall in March of 2014!
