Description:
The Continental Divide, located within The Inn at Virginia Tech, presents Thirsty Thursday with Music from Long Point String Trio on Thursday, January 24, 2019.

Long Point String Band is an Old-Time acoustic outfit from southern West Virginia. We blend the authenticity of Old-Time Mountain music, with the flare of Bluegrass.

The Long Point String Band, at it's core, consists of the virtuosic stylings of Hunter Walker and Brian Bell. Hunter Walker is a multi-instrumentalist, champion mountain dulcimer & clawhammer banjo player. Hunter is a native Appalachian who became enamored with old-time music at an early age. His love and perseverance of the music has garnered him some prestigious awards, including: 4-time WV state mountain dulcimer champion, 3-time Galax Old-Fiddlers Convention mountain dulcimer champion, mid-eastern regional mountain dulcimer champion and numerous others. He is also a decorated clawhammer banjo player. Brian Bell is also a native Appalachian, who has cut his teeth on the bluegrass circuits over the last several years. He performed as a cornerstone member of prominent regional bluegrass bands for over 10 years, having played well over a thousand shows and produced and played on numerous recordings. Brian is a first-call veteran guitar player whose rhythmic capabilities are sought after by many prominent figures in the bluegrass, and now, old-time genres.
