The Whitetop Mountaineers is made up of the duo, Martha Spencer and Jackson Cunningham and these two multi-instrumentalists are the real deal in old time Appalachian music.They hail from Whitetop in the mountains of Virginia, which is about as real as you can get.
Expect old time country duet singing, up-tempo fiddle, clawhammer banjo, bluegrass mandolin and guitar instrumentals as well as high energy Appalachian dancing.
They have been touring at festivals all over the world, and are a premier Bluegrass duo, so we are very lucky to have them at the hall.
They have recorded four duet albums: Fees Ridge, Virginia-Carolina, Home on the mountain and Go Away with Me.
Martha began dancing and playing at very young age. She plays fiddle, banjo, guitar, bass, dulcimer and sings. She has won competitions on banjo, fiddle, and vocals and has also been widely recognized for her Appalachian dancing.
