Carnegie Hall’s Ivy Terrace Concert Series

July 28 @ 6:30 pm

Carnegie Hall’s Ivy Terrace Concert Series presents Long Point String Band Thursday, July 28, at 6:30 p.m.
Sponsored by City National Bank, the concerts take place outside on Carnegie Hall’s Ivy Terrace as
attendees watch from the expansive lawn in front of New River Community and Technical College.
Concertgoers are encouraged to bring a lawn chair or blanket and pack a picnic to enjoy live music. All
Ivy Terrace concerts are free, open to the public, and alcohol-free.
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. We occasionally welcome the
guest support of Phillip Perry, Barbara Rosner, and Robert “Doc” Davis. Most recently, the LPSB was
honored to take home the 1st place blue ribbon in the Old-Time Band category, at the 2017 Tazewell
Old-Time and Bluegrass Fiddler’s Convention.
Hunter Walker is a multi-instrumentalist, champion mountain dulcimer & clawhammer banjo player.
Hunter is a native Appalachian who became enamored with old-time music at an early age. His love and
perseverance of the music have garnered him some prestigious awards, including 4-time WV state
mountain dulcimer champion, 3-time Galax Old-Fiddlers Convention mountain-dulcimer champion, Mid-
Eastern regional mountain dulcimer champion, and numerous others. He is also a decorated
clawhammer banjo player having won numerous awards and recently taking the 1st place blue ribbon in
the old-time banjo category at the 2017 Tazewell Old-Time and Bluegrass Fiddlers’ Convention.
Brian Bell is also a native Appalachian, who has cut his teeth on the bluegrass circuits over the last
several years. He performed as a cornerstone member of prominent regional bluegrass bands for over
10 years, having played well over a thousand shows and produced and played on numerous recordings.
Brian is a first-call veteran guitar player whose rhythmic capabilities are sought after by respected
figures in the Bluegrass, and now, Old-Time music genres.
Lewis Prichard started playing guitar at age 8, and mandolin at 15. He grew up in a musical family and is
originally from Charleston, West Virginia. Lewis played in Old-Time and Bluegrass bands while in college
and later played in the Virginia bands Mando Mafia and Wildgrass. Lewis learned to play the fiddle when
he was in his twenties, a time when he also traveled extensively in Colorado and Norway playing
acoustic music. Today Lewis lives in Beckley, W.V., and offers his virtuosity on fiddle and mandolin in the
bands Planetary Boardwalk, Greenhouse, and now, Long Point String Band.
Lars Swanson is an upright bassist from Beckley, WV. He is a favored session and performing musician in
various bands in southern West Virginia and the tri-state area. He currently studies Jazz Double Bass at

Marshall University. Lars has played recitals with many prevalent Jazz pedagogues and frequently
performs with the Marshall University Jazz faculty group, as well as the Huntington Symphony.
Long Point String Band has enjoyed her virtuosity, taste, and smile on our first recording and at several
venues, where we are fortunate enough to make music with her. The Long Point String Band released
their debut, self-titled album in 2016. A collection of old-time, Appalachian tunes and band/festival
favorites. Guest musicians that appeared on their debut album include Barbara Rosner (upright bass),
Cat Deck (bass guitar) and Jason Lockart (percussion). Their album release has been met with success
and positive feedback from top musicians of the genre. Get your copy today on CDBaby, or by
contacting the band directly.
