Drawing inspiration from the rich string band culture of the Virginia-Carolina Blue Ridge region, The Alum Ridge Boys & Ashlee bring together old time mountain music, traditional bluegrass, and early country music to produce a uniquely authentic old time sound. Powerful harmony singing and energetic instrumentals have made them one of Southwest Virginia’s favorite string bands.
Performing regularly for dances and festivals around the world, The Alum Ridge Boys & Ashlee have won many contests including the old time band contest at the 85th Annual Old Fiddlers’ Convention in Galax, VA and the bluegrass band contest at the 51st Mount Airy Fiddlers’ Convention in NC.
Band members have won a slew of individual awards as well, including first prize in the MerleFest Chris Austin Songwriting Contest. Deep knowledge and appreciation for traditional music enables the band to craft tasteful original songs and instrumentals that blend seamlessly alongside the classics. The Alum Ridge Boys & Ashlee cut no corners when it comes to real, hard hitting, old time country music - an approach that is quickly gaining them loyal followers far beyond the reaches of their Virginia mountain home.
