Review from the show at the Canadian Embassy:
Drymill Road played at the Embassy of Canada on July 23rd, to a crowd of over 350 people. Not only was their music great, they were reliable, extremely professional, friendly and efficient. Having them play really made the whole event, and we wouldn’t hesitate to book them again in the future. (Megan L., Events Production, Embassy of Canada)
Drymill Road is a 4 piece bluegrass band from Winchester Virginia.
The band includes: Robert Mabe on Banjo, Sean Loomis on Guitar, Doug Ross on Mandolin, and David Hurt on Bass.
Focusing on high energy and heartfelt original material, the band also plays traditional numbers and has some very interesting takes on classics from
Led Zeppelin, Hank Williams, Bob Dylan, The Beatles, and more!
Drymill Road crafts old-timey newgrass/bluegrass-tinged goodness marked by upbeat banjo, perky mandolin and wildly harmonizing vocals!
Overall, it’s chipper, charming, spirited good time music that’ll take your somewhere down the tranquility of a back road then the next song will sling you into the heart of a raucous party to sell out crowds. A mighty fine musical time!
The band brings a full-blown entertainment experience to the stage with some very different blends of old, new, traditional, surprising twists and turns of musicality and phrasing. The beauty of it is to not expect to hear “NewGrass” or some far-out translation of the basic form. The value is in the entertainment package. They’ll transport you down a road – that’s ‘Older than the Hills.
In addition to playing music festivals and concert halls year round, Drymill Road has played the Canadian Embassy and had the honor of playing Carnegie Hall in March of 2014!

The promoter was very interested in hiring us but wanted to review our CD recordings before making a final decision.
We sent our CDs to him. After a few days we emailed to see if he had listened and to see what he thought of the music.
Here is his response…and one of my favorite reviews:
“….I did. You guys are different in some very rare ways. You haven’t got a tenor, you didn’t put “Love of the Mountains” on your CD, There are no showoffs on any instrument. You aren’t afraid to border on folk, new grass, Indie, cafe, uptown and or mountain blues style pickin. I can only think of one heretic that got such a review when looking for a gig when he was young. His name was Charlie Waller. I’m interested and we need to talk….” Read more…
