Virginia has history nestled among its rolling hills and verdant valleys. The Piedmont region has witnessed turbulent and formative events that have in turn produced an uncommonly rich variety of compelling musical styles and voices. From Blues to Country to Bluegrass and beyond, it is a heritage that Virginia-based singer/songwriter Randy Thompson intuitively understands and brings vividly to life. His music lovingly embraces the past even as it blazes kicking, picking, singing and rocking into the 21st Century.
Randy Thompson can trace a Virginia bloodline back to the early 1700s. Thompson, who now resides in the small town of Clifton, gives true meaning to the term “roots music.” Like his musical antecedents, Randy draws inspiration directly from his own experience, creating starkly drawn musical and lyrical pictures.

Janet Emma’s first release in 2006 earned her & then band One Horse Town the Washington Area Music Association’s “New Artist of the Year”. With revered Texas singer/songwriter/producer Walt Wilkins at the helm, Janet’s 2009 solo release Ghostfields, though having been recorded & engineered entirely in Cedar Park, TX at Jumping Dog Studios, garnered 3 ‘Wammie’ nominations for Best Female Vocalist, Best Debut Album & Best Country Album. Accompanied by a revolving band of Western Loudoun’s & Maryland’s finest pickers & top shelf musicians, Janet Emma & Seven West deftly deliver originals & a few handpicked covers for a night filled with dancehall tunes – often homegrown & sometimes borrowed – authentically from Janet Emma’s favorite bluegrass, country, Appalachian blues & swing influences.
