Jeff Raught
Jeff Raught

Jeff has been meandering his way through life with songs and stories for many years. Finding the humor in unexpected places and delivering it in a way that only Jeff can. Connecting the dots, or maybe helping to erase them. It is a delightful blend of music that has flavors of blues, gospel and hints of The American Songbook.

For a new twist on some old yarn....

Various ensembles over thirty-ish years.

I play bass guitar (currently a five string "MTD").

I've played in churches (I'm part of a folk group in a Catholic church at present), pubs - nasty and nice, concerts, coffee houses and assorted other environments.

I've played in duos, full bands (three, four, five piece) and other configurations. I've had the good fortune to be part of a number of recording sessions as well.

I play by ear and use chord charts frequently. I am learning to "read" but am at a beginner level in that regard.

There are very few types of music that I don't like. I've played rock, country, gospel, reggae, folk and even some classical at a semi-serious to pretty serious level.

I'm a sucker for a great melody, a cool riff or a worthwhile lyric. If all three elements converge in a song great; I will, however, settle for one or two of them. :-)

Wendy Chappell-Dick
http://www.mennofolksonggirl.webs.com/
For Wendy, making music is thoroughly woven into relationships. Compared by some to Kate Wolf for this combination of friendship, folk style and heartfelt melody, Wendy chooses her songs like quilt squares, her music partners gathered round the table for so much more than music. Her tools are a cello, guitar, dulcimer, hymnal, and a stock of over 1000 tunes by memory. Wendy calls herself an evangelist, an activist and an enthusiast of music that comes from the cradle of the Mennonite church. Her music is at home at protests, coffeehouses, living rooms, churches, woods and cabins. She is active in all genres especially including children's, celtic, classical, choral, a capella, historical folk, and 80s rock and roll.

Trent Wagler & the Steel Wheels

Trent Wagler & the Steel Wheels remind me of something I've never heard before. Acoustic String Band and solitary soul performance, bounding fiddle tunes, and deep lyrical landscapes. No wonder John Bright called him "an americana songmaster."

Timothy Dyck
http://www.facebook.com/pages/Tim-Dyck/197368283633800

Hey! My name is Timothy Dyck and my passion in life is serving God through music. I currently am a part of my church worship team playing guitar and singing and I also perform at coffeehouses and talent shows just for fun.

Tim Shue

Tim Shue comes to us from Kidron, Ohio, where he is director of music at Central Christian High School. At home on the guitar, fiddle, and other folk instruments, Tim performs unique arrangements of hymns and original songs. Inspired to by topics like his native Kansas, tornadoes, grandma, church life, to his favorite hobby of birding, Tim's songs are driven by stories, meaning, and connection.

fairly minimal and sometimes ethereal soul indebted rock (or was that folk) music that floats between personal rumination and political critique

 

Those Rowdy Corinthians
http://www.myspace.com/thoserowdycorinthians
"Those Rowdy Corinthians" (Sam Adams and Josh Compton) share their love for their roots, hymns, old-timey songs, and storytelling. Influenced by their Appalachian ancestors, they sing songs about trains, ships, love (lost or not), spiders, losing, running away, death, peace, pain, life, the wind, and God. They tell stories of thieves, disciples, and themselves as they explore their deep love for music and strive to keep the music of their ancestors alive. Singing is loving.
the Shady J's
http://www.myspace.com/theshadyjs
the Shady J's are a K-W band who dabble in anything from folk to pop playing just about everything in between.
The New Johnsons
Erin Johnson and Hannah Johnson play the music that has been living in the hills of Virginia for centuries. Though Erin and Hannah have only been living in these hills for most of their twenty one and twenty year lives, they are totally in love with the old time Appalachian music that they play. The two Keezletown natives have made their faces known around Harrisonburg by busking on the streets and playing at The Little Grill Collective, a local worker-owned restaurant. Erin
The Land
http://www.homeontheland.ca
The Land's music combines intricate vocal harmonies with guitar, viola, violin, banjo, mandolin, and sometimes organs and synthesizers. The music is mellow, like warm milk at bedtime.
