This year, the Ramp It Up Ramp Festival is pleased to feature The Long Point String Band and The Poor Taters to compliment your dinner with some local music that is, well, as powerful and memorable as the little plant we’re gathering to celebrate!
The Long Point String Band
“The Long Point String Band is an Old-Time Acoustic “Neo-Traditional” outfit from southern W.V. We blend the authenticity of Old-Time Mountain Music, with the flare of bluegrass, regularly playing musical selections from West Virginia old-time and bluegrass pioneers. The LPSB is a highly decorated group, consisting of the virtuosic stylings of Hunter Walker, Brian C. Bell, Lewis Prichard and Lars Swanson.
The Long Point String Band released their debut, self-titled album in July 2016. A collection of old-time, Appalachian tunes and band/festival favorites. Their debut album release was met with success and positive feedback from top musicians of their genre. The Long Point String Band released their 2nd full-length album “Piney Woods”, which was released in August 2018. With more recordings and special projects on the horizon, the LPSB prides itself on playing a full calendar of shows and special events throughout the region.”

The Poor Taters
“Hailing from southern West Virginia, Poor Taters has been spreading an infectious blend of Progressive Neo-Traditional music with hints of old-time, jazz, blues, county, and rock for over a decade. A well-known presence at the world-renowned Appalachian String Band Festival in Clifftop, WV Poor Taters has been presented multiple awards for their compositions in the Neo-Traditional competition.
Poor Taters has also shared festival stages and venues with acts such as Del McCoury Band, Larry Keel & Natural Bridge, Mountain Heart, Keller Williams, Hillbilly Gypsies, Everett Lilly, Nat Reese, Todd Burge, Hillbilly Carnival, Jacobs Ferry Stragglers and numerous other talented acts.
Whether playing around the campfire, on the back porch, or on the festival stage Poor Taters are right at home. Eclectic dynamic shifts, flailing fiddle solos, and driving rhythms surround their cross-genre performances resulting in a foot stomping-good ol’time!”
