Ryan Scarberry is an acoustic-based, folk singer-songwriter and multi- instrumentalist whose songs bring thoughtfully crafted words and homespun melodies together, making you want to pull up a chair and listen in closely. His latest record “Working to Build” was recorded in Richmond, VA and in Charlotte, NC, where he currently lives and was released in the summer of 2013. It blends elements of folk, bluegrass, and jazz together. Describing his album, Scarberry writes: “It’s about our efforts to rebuild after things have been broken, taking trips down into your heart and being changed, about doubts and truth, and about taking all the scattered pieces and making something of a home where you can invite someone in, as messy as it might be.”
Ryan started playing drums when he was eleven, played in a few bands and eventually picked up the guitar a few years later and started to write songs of his own. Over the past few years, he has performed his music in venues from the Virginia to California. After establishing himself as a self-taught musician Scarberry has since studied at Berklee College of Music and has stretched outside of his folk roots to conduct an orchestra in the classical genre.
Scarberry's influences reach from Paul Simon and Jackson Browne to more contemporary singer-songwriters like Josh Ritter and Ray Peter Bradley Adams.
He is currently at work on an EP to be released later this year.
Opening: Logan Vath
Logan Vath hails from a small town in western Nebraska where everyone smiles as they walk by one another, and every passing pickup truck offers a friendly wave. Transplanted to Hampton Roads via the Navy, Logan has been active within the Hampton Roads music scene since March, 2012. Writing simple and honest songs, he focuses on themes of displacement, faith, and relationships withstanding the distance placed in between them. Logan has won numerous songwriting competitions, shared the stage with some of his favorite national acts, and was honored to be nominated for “Best Emerging Artist” in Hampton Roads for VEER Magazine’s Local Music Awards. He will be putting out his first album, Better Man or Ghost, engineered by local native Mark Padgett, March 8th, 2013.
