3pm – 4:30pm | Ventucky String Band

Like a jukebox of old 78 records, The Ventucky String Band is reminiscent of a time when Texas Swing still dominated the AM radio airwaves, and Bluegrass music was as novel as the arrival of television.  Where some have tried to diminish Ventura as “Ventucky,” this band sees their name not as a veiled jab at Bluegrass music or the city that brought them together— but instead as a tribute to the music and culture of the farmers, roustabouts, and cattlemen that helped grow the city during the early days of big-oil and agriculture in Ventura County.

Typical sets can vary from 1930’s Jazz & early Bluegrass, to cowboy ballads, folk, and honky-tonk—all seamlessly woven together with original songwriting that draws inspiration from the deep well-spring of American roots music.

Formed in 2010, this highly skilled multi-instrumental quartet features Matt Sayles, Dave White, and Lauren Donahue blending three part harmonies and original songwriting into a sound that harkens back to the golden age of country music, and the roots of the country and western sound of the 1930’s, 1940’s and 50’s.  Special guest, Brent Harding of "Social Distortion" will be performing with the band on upright bass.

Members of the Band have played professionally all over the U.S and Europe with appearances on the Wheeling West Virginia Jamboree (WWVA), as well as performances with Bluegrass, Country, Western Swing & Cajun legends like Merle Haggard, Dwight Yoakam, Asleep at the Wheel, Larry Sparks, Doyle Lawson, the Bellamy Brothers, Steve Riley & the Mamou Playboys, Hot Club of Cowtown, and many more.

Brent Harding has played bass with Mike Ness and Social Distortion since 2004. His previous bands include Deke Dickerson and The Ecco-Fonics, The Eugene Edwards Band, The Lucky Stars, The Sleepwalkers and The What-Me Worry? Jug Band. He also plays stand up bass for the legendary Ventura bluegrass band, Whiskey Chimp.

5pm – 7pm | The Railsplitters

The Railsplitters, winners of the 2013 Rockygrass Best New Band competition are a high-energy bluegrass and americana band from Boulder Colorado.  Fresh off the success of their first album, The Railsplitters got busy touring the US, meeting wider audiences, and of course, spending hours in the tour van! As you can imagine from five members traveling across the United States, the musical array pouring out of the van onto the open highway was wildly eclectic, crossing over genre and time. From boundary breaking trip hop and electronica groups like Gorillaz and Thievery Corporation, to more direct influences like The Infamous Stringdusters and Lake Street Dive, the musical potpourri heard in their time on the road eventually began to seep into the band’s own music. With their new album, The Faster It Goes, they’re using these new sounds to break the bonds of bluegrass and unleash tradition. Lauren Stovall and the rest of the ‘Splitters suggest that using your roots to evolve is really at the heart of the genre, not unlike Bill Monroe, who himself was an innovator. With their finger on the pulse, The Railsplitters are pushing the genre forward with an adventurous spirit, carrying in the tradition of breaking boundaries with their innovative sound.
