Will Jones is an aspiring professional musician who spends his days writing songs or on the road performing. Will starting playing music when he was six years old and has been traveling as a performer since the age of eight. Will grew up in Cana Virginia playing Bluegrass with his family’s band The Cana Ramblers and travelled professionally for 6 years.

After graduating from Virginia Tech University with a degree in history, Will decided that life was too short not to travel and play music. When he isn’t on stage and pursuing his career as a singer/songwriter within the realm of Americana and Country music, you can find him somewhere on a river with a fly rod in his hand, enjoying the vast beauty of nature and outdoor sports.

Since starting his own career in music, Will has performed or done shows along with artists such as Tracy Lawrence, Sierra Hull, Sarah Jarosz, Chris Thile, Johnny Cash, Osborn Brothers, Ralph Stanley, Ben Haggard and many more.

-“Music is who I am. How I create music is inspired by my surroundings and inspirations. Therefore I explore to find myself”. — Will Jones

Abigail Dowd is a North Carolina-based singer/songwriter/guitarist. She grew up under the Carolina longleaf pines and hints of the early Celtic settlers weave through her music. Her lyrics are mesmerizing and her bluesy voice has been described as “a rare thing that is at once strong and generous in its vulnerability.”
