The annual Opry Night at the Pocahontas County Opera House has come to represent some of the best bluegrass and traditional talent in the region. This season’s Opry Night showcases Pocahontas County favorites The Viney Mountain Boys and The Elk River Ramblers.
The Viney Mountain Bluegrass Boys feature Doug Scott, Richard Hefner II, David Kershner and Jody Harrison. Drawing from influences that include the Stanley Brothers, Bill Monroe, Jimmy Martin, and Flatt and Scruggs, the Viney Mountain Bluegrass Boys’ old, traditional bluegrass brings out the purist fans as well as a young set of new fans.
The Elk River Ramblers are Terry Richardson on guitar, Galen Watts on bass and vocals, and Paul Marganian on fiddle, guitar, and vocals. With a foundation in old-time and Celtic music, The Elk River Ramblers also branch out into bluegrass, klezmer, and even contemporary pop.
