Durbin & Greenbrier Valley Railroad Harvest Moon Pumpkin Patch & Picnic – September 26Wild-Heart-WV-fullWEB1

Celebrate the Harvest season under the Harvest Moon at Spruce. Beautiful fall colors and pumpkins for the kids! Traditional mountain music and picnic. As dusk settles in, a campfire until the moon peaks over the mountain.

The new “Wild Heart of West Virginia” Event schedule includes departures from Cass, Cheat Bridge, and Elkins. These three departures culminate at Spruce, the location area of the event. Spruce is the historic location of one of the highest elevated logging towns in the east that disappeared with the railroad logging days. This new wilderness event option takes place in one of the most remote areas of the Mountain State and is accessible by rail only. Seats are limited, depending upon event.

NOTE: All Elkins Depot departures include select beverages & snacks in ticket price

sugar run 1Music by Sugar Run:

Sugar Run began as the husband and wife team of Mike (banjo, guitar and vocals) and Bonnie Johnson (bass fiddle and vocals), and has grown to include Geoff White on fiddle and vocals, Rachel Johnson on Fiddle, and Stanley Asbury on the rhythm and flat-pickin’ style guitar and vocals. All of us play in or with other groups in the region, as well.

Our musical repertoire consists primarily of traditional music of the Southern Appalachian and Piedmont regions in the style of older (and some contemporary) Bluegrass, Old-Time, old “Country” music, a few Cajun tunes (in French, by Geoff) and some ancient ballads and tunes with roots back to the Scottish, Irish, and English lands. Our music includes songs of: love-gone-bad; train wrecks; bad-men and hangings; murders; ghosts and hauntings; moonshine whiskey; and death and Redemption. (Many, if not all those themes may occur in the same song!).

We also include songs of humor as well as peppy fiddle tunes suitable for flat-footin’, square dancing, or just standing around and tapping your feet.
