Every Friday night, RVA Mag brings you an essential playlist curated by Virginia’s most influential artists, musicians, and institutions.
This time around, we’ve got a selection of tunes from Richmond’s premier old-time string band, Dharma Bombs. With strong connections to the heart of Virginia, this acoustic ensemble has been bringing the powerful sound of Appalachian roots music to the river city for over half a dozen years now. Their new album, Enjoy The View, finds them embracing their local heritage for their strongest collection of tunes yet.
Dharma Bombs’ playlist brings us a fine collection of country, jazz, blues, Americana, and beyond, both pulling from decades past and incorporating the latest up-to-the-minute sounds. It all adds up to a great listen that’s sure to get you stoked for their next show. And you won’t have to wait long — they’ll be headlining a triple bill of excellent Virginia groups, along with Piranha Rama and Chupacabras, tomorrow night at The Camel. Get tickets and more info here, and warm up your cold evening with this excellent set of tunes courtesy of Dharma Bombs.
Take it home, Virginia.
