Long Point String Band Bio:
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 group consists of the virtuosic stylings of Hunter Walker, Brian C. Bell, Lewis Prichard and Lars Swanson. The Long Point String Band members are highly decorated musicians, individually, and as a band. The LPSB released their 2nd full length album “Piney Woods” in August, 2018, which is available at shows, and on CDBaby, iTunes, Google Play, etc.
Allan Dale Sizemore, also known professionally as Black King Coal, has been writing songs for over 30 years. He wrote his first real song at the age of 14, as soon as learned 3 chords on his first guitar, an old Harmony acoustic that had a hole kicked in the back of it and with only one string that his Uncle gave him from the trash. He learned then that you only needed 3 chords to write a decent song, maybe less. Since then, he has gone on to write hundreds of songs.
He has been a one man band for many years, playing drums, guitar, bass, harmonica and singing, and moves from old blues, to country, to stompgrass and just about anything in between. Occasionally he brings a friend along, because he gets lonely.
His songwriting is varied in subject matter as well as style, from fingerpicked stories full of melancholy visions and fire and brimstone to full blues and soul, and whatever comes, he keeps an open mind.
