Mason Via and Friends will be playing at Shelter #2 at Fairy Stone State Park on Saturday, May 25, at 7 p.m., presented by the American Music Series, a program of The Reynolds Homestead.
Via is a talented young singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist from Danbury, N.C., who is on his rise to stardom. He grew up attending fiddlers’ conventions and music festivals, where he was steeped in the rich Appalachian culture that surrounds the area. Picking and singing from an early age, Via combines soulful high lonesome singing with virtuosic instrumental prowess. His lyrics also are considered by many to be the driving force behind his band’s music, and his vocals back up the deep emotion that his lyrics possess.
