The Hillbilly Gypsies, A West Virginia native string band who specialize in playing their own homegrown style of Appalachian old time music, mixed with a hard drivin' bluegrass sound. In addition to their original material, The Hillbilly Gypsies play an eclectic mix of traditional and quite often, not-so-traditional bluegrass standards and catchy old fiddle tunes. They perform in the old fashioned style, around a single vintage style large diaphragm microphone. This "Old Timey" approach adds a high energy barn party atmosphere to their show. Watching the whole band work around the mic is like taking a trip back in time. It'll sure make you want to get up and dance! www.TheHillbillyGypsies.com

All in all, the band has garnered over 50 industry awards since their inception in 1991. While many bluegrass bands have come and gone, Russell Moore & IIIrd Tyme Out have endured the process. Formed in 1991 in Cumming, Georgia, they’ve managed to climb to the top not just once, but twice—winning a slew of IBMA vocal awards, including two Male Vocalist of the Year honors, in the mid and late 1990s, then persevering through rough times to see Moore recapturing the Male Vocalist trophy for the past three years. Along the way, they’ve made a whole new generation of fans. Cash bar available. www.IIIrdTymeOut.com
