You will enjoy his guitar picking style, poetic lyrics, and unique voice. His foot stomping, down home melodies tell tales from light to dark and silliness to endearing. Hailing from southern Virginia, MoeDeLL’s roots are clearly tied to bluesy rolling rhythms of his native culture. Over the years, this Country American powerhouse has performed his down home music for crowds of every size. He usually performs over 250 shows a year from listening rooms, farmers markets and festivals alike. You won’t want to miss this special performance. Deadline to register is July 19. Fee: $5
