CHRIS CASSADAY
Growing up, music was always a prominent part of Chris Cassaday’s life. Whether it be singing in the back seat of his mom’s car, or watching his dad play the drums, Chris was hooked on music at an early age. And after receiving his first guitar at age 14, Chris honed his songwriting skills over the next few years, playing in various bands and as a solo act throughout high school and college.
After graduating from JMU in 2014, Chris independently released his first professionally recorded solo album The Savannah Sessions on May 25th, 2015. Chris got to work with producer/engineer Ted Bowne Of Passafire, one of Chris’s greatest influences and favorite musicians. Chris’s original song My Oh My off of the album was sought out by Sirius XM radio and is now being played regularly on Sirius XM’s the Coffee House (Ch. 14). Chris also performed a live session for Sirius XM in September 2015 that was featured on the air. After two years of extensive live performances around the country, Chris released his next studio effort Stranger Places on April 10th, 2017.
Chris has performed live for countless audiences both solo and with his band “The Cassaday Concoction” all over the country and even abroad and has proven quickly that he is a must-see live act. Chris’s unique blend of blues, rock, folk and funk, and his thunderous, distinctive voice have started to gather him a significant following. The sky is the limit for this Washington, DC based singer-songwriter.

JULIA KASDORF
Aug 14 @ 5:00 pm – 9:00 pm
JULIA KASDORF

After years of performance being a bass sideman, and co-fronting popular Loudoun County, Virginia band, One Horse Town, Julia Kasdorf gives us her solo album, “Motel”. The 11 (8 original, 3 covers) acoustic guitar-driven songs show how deep and wide Julia’s musical experience has been. Solidly Americana, with gleams of Motown, “Motel” shows us what its like to grow up loving rock ‘n roll in a bluegrass household.

Recorded over the course of a year at studio in the woods, “Motel” pulls together everything that Julia loves about music – flat top guitar, driving rhythm, a little soul, and visceral songwriting. Julia produced her own album and invited local legends Jon Carroll, Lynn Kasdorf on pedal steel, Mike Ault, Buddy Dunlap, and Gary Ferguson to help bring her sound to the acetate. “Somethings didn’t quite work out, and I painted myself into a couple of corners. There were times when I absolutely didn’t know what to do and wished like heck I had a producer to tell me!” she acknowledges “but I picked the right musicians and “Motel” kicks *ss, just like I wanted it to.”

Julia feared that the weak point of the album might be her singing. With the help of Les “Nitty Gritty Dirt Band” Thompson, she got away from the kind of pushy delivery she’d developed playing live shows, and found a way to just let the words slip out like honey. Julia was surprised and gratified by the results, having unexpectedly discovered a new gentle subtlety in her voice. “I knew that in the process of making “Motel” I’d learn a lot about myself, about what I wanted to say, about how I wanted to say it. After all the music I’ve learned and absorbed over the years, I thought something pretty cool might happen.”
