More information about the bands:
String Therapy is a unique collaboration originating in central Ohio in 2001. The heart and soul of the band was certainly set for bluegrass, but the band has reached outside the box in its ongoing search for musical therapy. The talent and high-energy of this multi-directional unit has performed various festivals and venues throughout the Midwest and have shared the bill with the likes of Sam Bush, Tony Rice, Larry Keel and The Infamous Stringdusters, just to name a few. The band covers a broad spectrum of music from Stanley Brothers to Allman Brothers and explores original material that establishes String Therapy as one of today’s premiere acoustic acts. Each member of the band is distinct in his own right. And, its this individuality that creates String Therapy’s impressive musical element.
Out of Mind Bluegrass
The Out of Mind band is a central Ohio based bluegrass group. Established in 2009 and still holding all four original members.
Coal Cave Hollow Boys
The Coal Cave Hollow Boys are the 2019 Pinecastle Records National Band Competition winners. TCCHB are know for their live shows both for great vocals and instrumentation. Gaining notoriety after performances at the Nelsonville Music Festival and a spring 2019 tour including stops in Knoxville and Nashville. TCCHB released their debut studio album August 24th. TCCHB have an intensive tour schedule with stops in St. Louis, Asheville, New York City, Toronto CA, and many more. TCCHB are going into Pinecastle Records studio in November to record their sophomore album.
The Coal Cave Hollow Boys, based out of Columbus, Ohio, are known as a bluegrass band, yet they masterfully weave rock and classic country into their sound. They bring their high energy onslaught of flat picking guitar, mandolin chopping, frenzied banjo, bass filled sound to every show.
In 2017, Lincoln Mash, lead singer and guitarist, teamed up with experienced regional musicians, Thomas Adams (mandolin) and Pete Mendenhall (bass), to establish TCCHB. Mash started playing guitar at the age of 7 and his fast and flawless guitar picking will bring applause from any crowd. His vocals carry sounds seasoned beyond his years.
TCCHB have shared the stage with notable bands such as Billy Strings, Reverend Payton’s Big Damn Band, Restless Leg String Band, and Town Mountain.
