Note: The two headliners are to be announced.
The Band Concord is an Americana band based out of Blacksburg, Virginia. The Band Concord has spent their entire lives saturated in sound. It wasn't until the Fall of 2012, when lead Spencer Pugh (Vocals/Guitar) and Andrew Steger (Mandolin/Banjo) met that the group began to form.
The duo transitioned from dorm room rehearsals to opening for The Maine to being featured on The Avett Brothers' Facebook page and quickly found their footing in the music industry. Growing up mesmerized by the strum of a guitar, the beat of a drum, the playing of a piano - they all know that it would stay with them forever.
Over the past few years, The Band Concord has performed non-stop along the East Coast, from restaurants and breweries to pavilions and festivals. In August 2014, the band performed at American Music Festival in Virginia Beach, featuring artists Train, Hunter Hayes, Rusted Root and more. Known for their love and playing of all things folk, The Band Concord shares a similar sound to that of The Head and the Heart and Fleet Foxes.
Along with the music there will be free rides and novelties.
Admission is free and all are welcome.
