The Rural Academy Theater is a collaboration of individuals, two-legged & four, creating theater for primarily rural audiences in response to the growing urbanization of our culture, economy, food, education, media & art.

Their annual horse-pulled tour brings performers, musicians, sculptors & dancers to town greens, college campuses, theaters, riverbanks & farms via horse pulled wagon & bicycle power. They perform evenings of original theater under the stars or clouds using their wagon as their stage followed by a healthy dose of classic silent cinema accompanied by the Rural Academy Orkestar.

The rest of the year they create theater, installation art, concerts, dances, feasts & all sorts of other gatherings that bring communities together to celebrate & ponder what it means to be alive together in this place, at this time.

Graham Sharp (banjo, harmony vocals) met future bandmates Woody Platt (guitar, lead vocals) and Charles R. Humphrey III (bass, harmony vocals) in 1999, while all three were attending the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill. Drawn together by their love of acoustic music, they began playing impromptu jam sessions. The main impetus to “go bluegrass” was the input of mandolin player Mike Guggino, an old friend of Platt’s. He owned a cabin in the mountains near the school, and the quartet used that as its rehearsal space. What has emerged is a real collaboration of musicians—creating music that they are passionate about, and blending it with humor to form a sophisticated show. Recent appearances include Austin City Limits, the Late Show with David Letterman, and the Today Show, and performances at Carnegie Hall, the Grand Ole Opry, as well as their own Mountain Song festival. 
The Steep Canyon Rangers are proof that traditional bluegrass music can adapt to its times without losing its history. Della Mae is a young all-female bluegrass band whose melting pot of musical talent, feisty tracks and spirited execution make them a force to be reckoned with. Sparks will fly when these two bluegrass powerhouses come together.
