Mason Creek features four artists of traditional, acoustic, bluegrass-music style. Based out of the Roanoke Valley, Virginia area, Mason Creek cites their many obvious local and legendary musical influences. The band is able to journey into a realm of their own, while still maintaining the spirit of sounds created within the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia.

The four friends, with their combined musical taste of traditional bluegrass, quickly realized that the fun and laughs never stopped. Founded in the Summer of 2015, Mason Creek was formed. Featuring veteran local performers, Gary John— lead vocal and driving rhythm guitar; Shannon Wheeler’s notoriously wicked fiddling; along with JW Meade's enforcement of solid acoustic bass playing lays a strong foundation for the driving Scruggs’ style banjo of youngest member, Brandon Dickerson.


Electric Woodshed is a long running band established in 1987 based in Blacksburg and Roanoke, Virginia. Blending bluesy, funky, country,and classic rock sounds into genuine southern Virginia rock and roll.


Crawford & Power is a Country and Southern Rock band based out of Franklin County, Virginia. After numerous successful shows and opening for acts like Jerry Douglas, Chris Knight, and headlining at The Blue Dahlia, The Floyd Country Store, Table 50, and a plethora of private gigs throughout Virginia, Crawford and Power decided to form a duo in the spring of 2015.

The two young musicians have already made a name for themselves as unparalleled cover artists, and have recently begun to perform originals. The duo has opened for acts such as Marshall Tucker, Luke Combs, Chris Knight, Jerry Douglas, Drake White, Confederate Railroad, Russell Dickerson, and many more.
