Fort Vause (Band)


Fort Vause is a collection of musicians based in Montgomery County, VA that performs in a variety of configurations. Depending on how they divide up, the band can play bluegrass, old time, gospel, traditional country and even what some folks call folk music.

Fort Vause features George Smith, who played banjo in the Appalachian Music Masters concert series and on recordings with Jack Hinshelwood and Buddy Pendleton; Jeff Wilcke, a doctor of veterinary medicine and rhythm guitar who also plays mandolin; and the newest member of the band, virtuoso guitarist Steven Paul, who came to Fort Vause from a Gypsy jazz band and is front man for the electric alt-country band Electric Road. Tim Thornton, who slipped onto a Black Twig Pickers recording once, plays bass and sometimes other things.
