The Wild Rumpus have spent the last three years introducing the world to Appalachian Stompgrass through hundreds of live shows. Take the mountains, all the influences, whether they be bluegrass, blues, punk, folk or old country and roll them together and you get Appalachian Stompgrass, a breed of music that isn’t hung up on a
certain label, but one that is forging it’s own brand.
The Wild Rumpus are Appalachian Stompgrass personified! Hell raisin’, good time, high energy, footstompin’, dancin’ and hula hoopin’! Shake Yer Rumpus!
About: Hailing from Fayetteville, WV, the Wild Rumpus is an original string band led by singer and songwriter, Andrew Adkins. Forging a sound that has one foot stomping in the past and the other stomping in the present, their debut album “Love, Trains & Home” on WV label Mudbone Records rolls together bluegrass, swing, country, and rock & roll for a style that is uniquely their own. Their influences range from Leonard Cohen to Jimmy Martin and touch everything in between while managing to hold together a sound that is instantly recognizable and will start your legs to dancing on their own. They have been playing shows promoting their summer CD release to rave reviews and the dancing has been spontaneous and instantaneous!
The Deer Run Drifters (DRD) is a stringed quintet from the small mountain town of Floyd, Virginia. The group, all from former bands of different genres came together in mid 2012 to play a more Folk/Bluegrass/Americana sound.
