Wheeler and Vintage Heart
love is worth the fall/The damage healed, & truth
is all that remains." - From "Avalanche"
thought-provoking lyrics & simple but poignant
melodies characterize Matt Wheeler's songwriting.
With live shows that feature a heartfelt delivery
of songs mixed together with a dose of light-hearted
humor, Matt's music is easy to like. It is because
of all of this that Matt Wheeler & Vintage Heart's
songs have sparked the interest of WXPN, WJTL, The
Andy & Patrick Show, Good Day PA, Around the
Wood Stove, & numerous other media outlets.
in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, Matt Wheeler
& Vintage Heart are emerging with a brand of
acoustic folk-rock that reflects faith, love, and
what it means to be human. Drawing influences from
the folk/singer-songwriter tradition such as James
Taylor, Glen Hansard, and Iron & Wine, Matt's
musical poetry can range from lilting and sweet
to haunting and driving.
Strings EP caught my attention, especially the violin
& cello on the song “Avalanche”.
Now with the help of his fans he has released his
debut album showcasing his warm sound & heartfelt
lyrics. If you are a fan of Josh Ritter give a listen
to Matt!”- Helen Leicht, WXPN Philadelphia

Slim Pickinz brings a unique take to a classic genre.
Their brand of “Electric Bluegrass”
gives a heavy nod to outlaw and classic country
as well as jam and a hint of rock n roll. They provide
high-energy shows and strive to keep the audience
involved through dancing, humor, and a travel bag
of various percussive instruments. Quite the dynamic

David Bell on the Banjo, and Cliff Tyler on the

"Never without the stomp, Banjaw cooks up a
pile of Americana Roots & blues-driven influence,
throws a down-home twist on it, and dishes it out
as the main course with a smile."
Biskit is a band based out of York Pennsylvania that
plays mostly blues based rock and roll. The band was
started about 7 years ago by founding members Tom
Runkle, Billy pope and Tom Kerns. There was an immediate
vibe there and we knew something good was going to
come from this lineup. Stone Biskit began playing
some private partys and we got great responses. The
band got gigs playing at Emersons Pub (now The Cove)
and our following continued to grow.
biskit plays originals and covers from the Rolling
Stones, Grateful Dead, Muddy Waters, Canned Heat,
G Love and Special Sauce, Jimi Hendrix and more.
Our bluesy rock sound has good audience appeal for
listening or dancing.

"Set Free" is a bluegrass/bluegrass
gospel group (band members are age 28 and younger)
from Southern York County P.A. We started playing
as a group in our early teens, and have been playing
as "Set Free" for 6 to 7 years. When we
first started playing, we primarily sang gospel songs,
but have recently included some secular songs to our
selection. We recorded our first album in January
2005. Our album includes traditional songs as well
as 3 original songs written by Daniels father, Ray
Stuber. Contact us for a free promotional copy of
our CD. "Set Free" combines energetic musicianship
with outstanding four part harmonies, to form a group
you will be sure to enjoy. Set Free released their
second CD, "Peace, Be Still" August, 2007.
The third CD is still in the works and will hopefully
be available in the summer of 2010.
Widad (pronounced “KAM *ell*laa” “WIH*dod”),
has battled some demons. Not the demons of drugs,
abuse or self-loathing. Along her travels through
musicianship she has had to determine whether
to conform to the prosaic formula of the singer-songwriter
or prominently display the middle finger of the
washed-up “good-ol-days” rocker. Thankfully,
she has chosen neither. Instead, she mixes the
melancholy mystery of life’s endless questions
with the joy and simple pleasure of answers when
they are found. Her music allows the listener
to experience a space in time where one gives
up trying to uncover and live within the secret
of happiness and embraces their sublime slice
of singularity. Beware, demons of peace dwell
there!” Colby Miller – PSU-Dickinson
One imagines that at some point
very early on it became inevitable that she would
come to this. You know where this is heading once
you get in your head that image of a tiny girl, aged
8 or so, with a can of soup in her backpack and, slung
over her shoulder, a “Hot Lixx” toy guitar
by Tyco (the kind that requires pressing one of five
big blue plastic buttons to make a squealing, high-pitched
electronic noise). It’s late afternoon one summer
day in South Florida; she huffs as she swings one
leg over her bicycle and pushes the hair out of her
eyes. She’s running away from home. She’s
certain, defiant, and ready for whatever adventure
she can summon.
Pharmacology consists of six multi-instrumentalists
and songwriters, working together to craft music
of various genres, reflective of our own eclectic
interests. The band plays everything from bluegrass
to metal, jazz to psychedelia, soundscapes to world
music, classical to blues, and cross pollinate along
the way. It is our belief that this is indicative
of a new time, in which innovations such as satellite
radio and the ipod give more people greater access
to different types of music. We ultimately hope
to create as close to a full sensory experience
as possible, utilizing light videos, animations,
and theatrical elements during live performances.
quality which seems to separate the great artists
from the mainstream is their ability to succinctly
tell us what we already know. That is to say, they
can tell us how we feel. Listening to a Johnny Mainstream
record is the equivalent of suddenly being privy
to a great secret; suddenly, you have words to explain
your own emotions and angst. And suddenly, you don't
feel as alone anymore.
Mainstream is a five-piece Americana act out of
Manchester, CT. Born in the Marist College dormitories
of songwriter Matthew Maynes and bassist Dan Garaffa,
Johnny Mainstream began writing honest folk songs
inspired by Bob Dylan, Bright Eyes, and Kevin Devine,
but infused with the punk rock ideals on which each
is a rocking trio comprised of Sam Brewer, Michele
Castellano, and John Kane. We play a range of music
from funk, soul, reggae, blues.....anything you
can dance to we'll play it! Come on out to a show
and have a beer or two with us!
Foggy Hollow band started in 2010 when three of
its members Rick Jones, Doug Kreiss and Steve Sadler
got together for a private jam. There was interest
in continuing these jams, so in typical bluegrass
fashion a band was formed. No band is complete without
a bass player, so Jim Thomas was asked if he would
be interested in joining the effort. Once Jim came
on board, things started to click. A different type
of bluegrass band developed – one with material
ranging from classic bluegrass to blues, country
now we have a band with no name. After much discussion
the name Foggy Hollow seemed to fit this group.
In the 60’s and 70’s there was a local
band – Oddie Jones and the Foggy Hollow Boys
that played in the Maryland, Southern PA area. There
is a connection with the old Foggy Hollow Boys and
the new Foggy Hollow. Jim Thomas played bass for
Oddie in the late 60’s – early 70’s
and Rick Jones, Oddie’s brother played banjo
for him in the 70’s and 80’s. The original
Foggy Hollow Boys had such talented local musicians
as Tommy Neal, Chris Warner, John Streett, Jim Finn,
Donald Jones, Carrol Swam and of course Jim and
Rick. So the name was shortened to Foggy Hollow
for this new band as a tribute to the original Foggy
four piece band realized they needed a fiddle player.
For a while it was fiddle player by committee, but
those fiddle players really didn’t seem to
fit the Foggy Hollow style. Then Martha McEvoy joined
the group in 2012, and it all came together. Foggy
Hollow had the fiddler they were looking for.
members include Doug Kreiss on mandolin, Steve Sadler
on guitar, Martha McEvoy on fiddle, Jim Thomas on
bass, and Rick Jones on banjo. We hope you enjoy
our traditional – not so traditional style

My, My Rural Radio Fall Music Festival III (last
years festival in review) by Sam Campbell of
It sounded like a great
idea: a music festival at a winery. Featuring
19 bands for $15, it was a bargain and all proceeds
would benefit The Children’s Miracle Network.
Fall Music Festival 3 turned out to be beyond
great and a bargain at any price. Clear your
October 2012 calendar in preparation for Fall
Music Festival 4, hosted again by MyRuralRadio.com!
My Rural Radio Fall Music Fest is a family affair.
Owners Michael Males and Trampas Ferree are
relatives with a common love for music, community
and good times. MRR.com was born when they tired
of hearing the same old songs on commercial
radio and seeing the same old cover bands at
local clubs. As part-time touring musicians
and fans of York’s bustling open-mic scene,
they knew that the plethora of local talent
was making great music and being marginalized.
My Rural Radio.com plays original, unsigned,
independent musicians in every genre. You would
be grievously mistaken if you think MRR is for
country or folk artists alone and this year’s
festival proved it.
The festival opened with the national anthem,
sung by SWHS student Morgan La Fave. Morgan
performed admirably on stage 3 later, but she
cleared stage 1 to make room for The Infidels.
Yes, The Infidels, a punk rock band with metal
tendencies was the opening act at My Rural Radio’s
festival! Other acts included pop, funk and
rock bands. What the show did not include was
boring, typical songs played by people with
all the trappings of a musician but not the
