Gerry & Jesse Milnes with Emily Miller

Over the last sixteen years, he has performed with West Virginia old-time band, Gandydancer. Jesse Milnes and Emily Miller perform country and old-time music, singing close harmony with Jesse's unique finger-picked guitar style and a healthy dose of old-time fiddling. Emily was raised playing and singing Louvin Brothers and Stanley Brothers songs with her parents. Jesse grew up in the world of West Virginia old-time music, learning from masters like Melvin Wine and Ernie Carpenter.

Memories from Festivals Past

Our official Festival Photographer, Priscilla Warnock, now has a selection of photos she has taken at the Delaware Valley Bluegrass Festivals for sale on her web site.  This includes many from the 2008, 2009 and 2010 festivals and a selection of shots from previous festivals, too.  You have probably seen her work on the festival web site, in bluegrass magazines like Bluegrass Unlimited and even on a number of bluegrass CDs.
