Ends: Wednesday, April 10, 2019 09:00 pm

Location: Gillis Theater
Center for Leadership and Ethics, VMI 500 Anderson Dr.
Lexington, GA 24450

Phone: (540) 464-1058

Website: https://rockbridgehistory.org/

Details: FREE. The third screening of Rockbridge Historical Society's WWI Film Series, presents the dramatic, gritty representation of the United States' Meuse-Argonne Campaign, in THE LOST BATTALION. "500 U.S. Soldiers, Trapped 5 Days Behind Enemy Lines. The Germans Gave Them Two Options: Surrender. Or Die. They chose a Third." Facing extraordinary odds, and in the terror of a mechanized, crushing, unforgiving Great War, 'The Lost Battalion' survived the incinerating thickets of France's Argonne Forest. And their courage turned the tide to help win World War I. The 90-minute film (Rated TV-14) will be preceded by a half hour's remarks from Director for VMI Center of Leadership and Ethics, Col. David Gray, and VMI Museum System Executive Director Keith Gibson. In supporting RHS' commitments to local histories, no less than the Institute's long and distinct legacy, their expertise will highlight the service and sacrifice of VMI alumni, staff, and soldiers on the Western Front. They're also uniquely prepared to address all those sustaining if often overlooked logistical challenges in engineering the stateside training sites and systems, and war effort at large. Before and after the film, you can browse artifacts brought to the event from RHS’ WWI exhibit, including research profiles prepared by current VMI cadets. Plenty of accessible parking behind Gillis Theater, in the Center for Leadership and Ethics, on the southern end of the VMI Parade Ground. For more, see RHS Facebook

Location: Lime Kiln Theater

Details: The Lone BellowOpener: Vivian Leva & Riley CalcagnoTickets are $40 in advance or $45 at the door.Show starts at 7:30pm. Doors open at 6:00pm. ---------------------------------------------------- “I want it to bring comfort,” The Lone Bellow guitarist Brian Elmquist says. “But it’s not all hard conversations. There’s a lot of light and some dancing that needs to happen.” Brian is reflecting on Half Moon Light, the band’s highly anticipated new album.Half Moon Light is an artistic triumph worked toward for years, earned not by individual posturing, but by collective determination and natural growth. With earthy three-part harmonies and songwriting as provocative as it is honest, the trio made up of Brian, lead vocalist Zach Williams, and multi-instrumentalist Kanene Donehey Pipkin creates sparks that make a stranger’s life matter or bring our sense of childlike wonder roaring back. On Half Moon Light, The Lone Bellow mix light and dark to muster a complex ode to memory, a call for hope, and an exercise in empathy. Anchored in the acoustic storytelling that first so endeared the band to fans and critics, Half Moon Light also takes more chances, experimenting with textures and instrumental fillips to create a full-bodied music experience. The result is The Lone Bellow’s most sophisticated work to date. Vivian Leva & Riley Calcagno’s self-titled record is old-soul roots music to its core. Though both just out of college, the duo’s musical talents extend far beyond their years. Produced by GRAMMY-winning Cajun roots heavyweight Joel Savoy at his Louisiana studio, Vivian Leva & Riley Calcagno (released March 12, 2021 on Free Dirt Records) is not some soulless collection of songs imitating previous masters of American music. Rather, the pair has responded to one of the darkest eras in American history with an album of stunning breadth and originality.With mass protests, fires raging near their current home in the Pacific Northwest, and no prospect of touring anytime soon, it’s an aptly biting, bittersweet group of songs for an uncertain time. Yet, Leva and Calcagno balance this with a sense of optimism—a notion that at our most vulnerable we might emerge better humans because of it all, perhaps beginning with our own intimate relationships. The eleven tracks elegantly reprise the deep threads of old-time and classic country present throughout Leva’s debut album—she did grow up in rural Appalachia outside Lexington, Virginia, the daughter of celebrated old-time musicians, after all. However, the pair fluidly meld this traditional backbone with fresh iconic melodies, expanded production, and the tightly wound vocal harmonies of indie folk. It’s an artistic statement made from this moment but built to last.

Phone:

Website: http://www.LimeKilnTheater.org

Details: Tickets are $35 in advance or $40 at the door.Show starts at 8:00pm. Doors open at 6:30pm. --------------------------------------------------- Since forming nearly 50 years ago, The Seldom Scene has brought both freewheeling joy and immaculate musicianship to their inventive take on bluegrass, offering up spirited interpretations of songs from limitless genres. On their new album Changes, the band sharpens their focus to a highly specific body of work: songs first recorded in the 1960s and very early ’70s, rooted in the archetypal storytelling of classic singer-songwriters. And in taking on the music of iconic artists like Bob Dylan and Townes Van Zandt, The Seldom Scene perform a sort of subtle magic: transforming the most stripped-bare songs into harmony-rich and elaborately arranged compositions, while wholly sustaining the charmed simplicity of each piece.Lifted from a soul-stirring version of Phil Ochs’s most celebrated love song, the title to Changes also reflects a major shift for the band: following the 2016 retirement of banjo player Ben Eldridge, it’s the first Seldom Scene album that doesn’t feature a founding member. “I suppose it’s a gutsy move to keep this going without a single original member left,” Connell admits. “But we’ve all been doing this for a quarter-century now, so if anybody can carry that mantle, it’s us.”On Changes, The Seldom Scene more than proves itself up to task, gracing every song with breathtaking instrumental interplay and heavenly three-part harmonies. Co-produced by the band and Rounder Records co-founder Ken Irwin, the album also spotlights The Seldom Scene’s sheer ingenuity as song arrangers, with even the most starkly composed tracks taking on wondrously intricate textures and tones.

Website: http://www.limekilntheater.org

Details: Tickets are $35 in advance or $40 at the door.Show starts at 8:00pm. Doors open at 6:30pm. ----------------------------------------------------- Multi-Instrumentalist and Singer-Songwriter Darrell Scott mines and cultivates the everyday moment, taking the rote, menial, mundane, and allowing it to be surreal, ever poignant, and candidly honest, lilting, blooming, and resonating. The words he fosters allow us to make sense of the world, what is at stake here, and our place in it. And ultimately, Darrell knows the sole truth of life is that love is all that matters, that we don’t always get it right, but that’s the instinctive and requisite circuitous allure of things, why we forever chase it, and why it is held sacred.Darrell Scott comes from a musical family with a father who had him smitten with guitars by the age of 4, alongside a brother who played Jerry Reed style as well. From there, things only ramped up with literature and poetry endeavors while a student at Tufts University, along with playing his way through life. This would never change.​After recently touring with Robert Plant and the Zac Brown Band (2 years with each), and producing albums for Malcolm Holcomb and Guy Clark and being named “songwriter of the year” for both ASCAP and NSAI, these days find him roaming his Tennessee wilderness acreage hiking along the small river, creating delicious meals with food raised on his property and playing music. He often leads songwriting workshops to help people tell their own truths with their stories, and is as busy as always writing, producing, performing, and just plain fully immersing himself in life.

Website: https://www.limekilntheater.org/2021-schedule.html

Details: -- SOLD OUT -- Raw, soulful, and with plenty of swagger, Town Mountain has earned raves for their hard-driving sound, their in-house songwriting and the honky-tonk edge that permeates their exhilarating live performances, whether in a packed club or at a sold-out festival. The hearty base of Town Mountain's music is the first and second generation of bluegrass spiced with country, old school rock ‘n’ roll, and boogie-woogie. Town Mountain's latest album New Freedom Blues (October 2018) is their second consecutive album to debut in the top 10 on the Billboard Bluegrass Chart, and receive multiple worthy mentions by Rolling Stone, No Depression, and more. Full of new material and featuring several guest artists including Tyler Childers and Miles Miller (Sturgill Simpson, drummer), they prove they have staying power by regularly cranking out authentic hit albums. The impression the band has made on fans is clear through their engagement, top tier festival appearances, and those sweet, sweet Spotify streams (6+ million). And if you still can’t get enough of this hard working group, you can look forward to new music in 2020.

Lexington, VA 24450

Phone:

Website: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/153050469073

Details: With its sharp storytelling and bursts of electric guitar, Who Are You Now is Madison Cunningham's coming-of-age record — a diverse album that's modern, melodic, and rooted in the 21 year-old's observations of her own fast-changing world."The past year was a largely transitional one for me. It felt like all at once I was living in a new city and anew era of my life, trying to find where I fit, what I believed, and who my people were. It doesn't matter how many great examples you have to look up to, when it’s your turn to face adulthood,you feel like you’re scrambling for the right tools.Writing this record really forced me to take an honest look at where I came from, what my dreams and fears were, and who I was becoming as a result.”Cunningham began searching for answers during her childhood in Orange County, California. A guitarist since the age of 7, she began performing alongside her father—a worship pastor and lifelong musician—at a local church. By 15 years old, she was writing her own songs and exploring her own voice as a musician. Playing an integral role in that process was Tyler Chester, a multi-instrumentalist and studio guru who'd worked with artists like Jackson Browne, Blake Mills, and Andrew Bird. Later, after leaving home and moving to Los Angeles, Cunningham's list of champions grew to encompass the likes of Sara Watkins, Chris Thile, and the Milk Carton Kids' Joey Ryan."When I met 15-year-old Madi and she played one of her early songs for me, it struck me within the first 15 seconds that I was witnessing one of the most purely musical human beings I would ever meet," says Chester. "She was young and her skillset unrefined, but already at her core was that same unteachable magic that you hear amplified in her today." ------- Hawktail is the instrumental acoustic quartet of fiddler Brittany Haas, bassist Paul Kowert, guitarist Jordan Tice, and mandolinist Dominick Leslie. Though at first glance it looks like an acoustic superpicker side-project, their all-original music is cohesive and unique, distinguishing them as an ensemble with a sound built from the ground up. Flush with orchestral sweeps and sparse vigils, with strains of the American South and the North Atlantic, this cosmopolitan sound is not what you’d expect from a string band. ​Each member of Hawktail brings a strong individuality to the project. Haas, whose 2004 self-titled release instantly became the touchstone for a generation of old-time fiddlers, has since lent her sound to Crooked Still, Live From Here, Steve Martin, and David Rawlings, where she played alongside Kowert, well known as the Grammy-winning Punch Brothers’ virtuosic bass player. Tice is a rare guitar player whose music showcases his unique identity and a particular knack for song and tune-writing, and Leslie is a versatile mandolinist whose rhythmic sensibility has made him ubiquitous on the acoustic music scene for over a decade. However, despite each of their ability to contribute to many musical situations, something special happens when they unite as Hawktail. Together, they have fostered a reputation as a rare ensemble of composers and instrumentalists able to take the listener on a journey, without the use of words.

Our tour will include the bunkhouses, our gathering/dining hall (otherwise known as the “L.S.”), our outdoor classrooms and pavilion, the canteen, the lab, library and museum complex, as well as our pool, swimming holes, Big Mary’s Creek, and nearby walking trails. A sample lesson will be offered to provide a glimpse of the hands-on experiential learning happening everyday at Camp, in which we take immeasurable pride. The July 23rd Saturday afternoon date marks the mid-way point of our 3rd session, so visitors will see Camp in full swing with campers in 7th and 8th grades. You’ll also get the chance to meet our Camp Director and senior counselors. We look forward to welcoming you – please spread the word about this special opportunity! To ensure we are prepared for you, PLEASE RSVP by 5pm Monday July 11 to Claire Still, Director of Publicity/Promotion, at clairestill@gmail.com.

Phone: (540) 261-4306

Website: http://runthechessie.org

Details: Run The Chessie! Run America’s most enchanting rail trail! The seven-mile Chessie Trail, situated at the southern end of the Shenandoah Valley, parallels the scenic Maury River and connects historic Lexington, Virginia, with the boom-town community of Buena Vista. The smooth, flat, gravel and grass trail runs along the former Chesapeake and Ohio rail line and parts of the earlier James and Kanawha Canal towpath. You’ll run through an ever-changing landscape along the wild Maury River, through farmland and leafy canopies at their peak of fall color, past ruins of massive stone locks and dams. View wildlife from fish and ducks to rabbits, wild turkeys, river otters, and even bald eagles (if you are lucky), feel the cool moist air as you pass small caves, and enjoy the serenity of a breeze rustling through a bamboo forest. This year the Marathon, Half Marathon, 5K, and 26.2 Relay are back and for the first time we will be running a 10K! The bridge over the South River has finally been replaced, so no more detour onto the road and the course will be even faster! In the spirit of the weekend, all runners racing in their Halloween costumes are eligible to receive a free vintage t-shirt and prizes will be awarded for best costumes. Runners setting overall course records will receive a $25 cash prize. Marathon runners will get to see the whole trail twice. You will be amazed at how the landscape changes as the sun comes over the cliffs transforming the narrow valley and the sparkling river at its bottom. Spectators will agree that this is the best marathon course ever as they cheer on their loved ones five times without ever having to leave the park-like setting of the start/finish area. And while we certainly hope this doesn’t happen, if you have to change your marathon run to a half marathon or ¾ marathon, you won’t have to worry about hitchhiking back to your car. Ideal for the first-time marathoner!Half Marathon runners will see nearly all of the trail as they head east towards Buena Vista, loop back to the starting line on the way to Lexington, and then loop back down to the finish line. 10K runners will head towards Buena Vista first, turning back just after South River, then continue past the starting line towards Lexington, turning once more and running the final 2.5K downhill to the start/finish line.5K runners will head towards Lexington, running along remote sections of the Maury River through forests and fields, and at the base of towering limestone cliffs. When the river bends into a double horseshoe, they will loop back for a slightly downhill finish.26.2 Relay runners will follow the same course as the Marathon. There will be four legs to the relay of approximately 8.5m, 4.6m, 8.5m, and 4.6m. Runners may run more than one leg for their team. Each team will be issued a standard aluminum relay baton, which they will be required to carry on their bodies for the entire race. All exchanges will take place at the start/finish area. Teams are encouraged to decorate their baton with their team colors, logo, etc. The winning team in each division will be awarded a trophy. Winners will be determined by first across the finish line (not chip time). There will be three divisions, all female, all male, and mixed female/male. Relay team captains will be required to pay the registration fee for the team and set up a team name and password so that other team members may enter their information on the registration website. Walkers are welcome in the 5K, 10K, and Half Marathon. Full Marathon registration includes a custom embroidered finisher’s hat, long sleeve tech t-shirt, race sticker, custom medals for all finishers, awards to top overall finishers and age group winners, and post-race pizza, snacks, and beverage. Half Marathon registration includes a long sleeve tech t-shirt, race sticker, custom medals for all finishers, awards to top overall finishers and age group winners, and post-race pizza, snacks, and beverage. 10K & 5K runners will receive a short sleeve tech t-shirt, race sticker, custom medals for all finishers (**NEW for 2022**), awards to top overall finishers and age group winners, and snacks and beverage following the race.Marathon Relay registration includes, long sleeve tech t-shirt, race sticker, custom medals for all team members, trophies for the winners of each division, and post-race pizza, snacks, and beverage.
