Sugar Run’s music ranges from traditional high-energy Bluegrass, foot-stompin’ Old-Time, poignant ballads of heartbreak and loss, old-style Country and Honky-tonk music, gospel, as well as original compositions. We also feature specific musical formats and selections for special occasions, such as: Civil War reenactments, dances, or remembrance festivals; local tradition events; railroading and logging events; dances; etc.

Sugar Run’s home range is situated in the Allegheny Mountain region of West Virginia and Virginia. Our regular performance venues include Virginia and West Virginia. We do play in other areas as the opportunities arise, and we are willing to travel.
