He has played with several local bands and has extensive experience in entertaining the public. Bill sings lead and harmony on many of the bluegrass favorites and plays mandolin on instrumentals including "fiddle tunes" and numerous banjo selections. Some of the "crossover" tunes that Bill performs are: "Riding My Thumb To Mexico", "I've Got Stripes" and "Friday Night Blues" to mention a few. He has performed at many of the local wineries, community festivals, Bluemont Concert Series, Marriott Ranch and Arlie Conference Center events. Bill also donates a lot of his time entertaining residents of local nursing homes, assisted living centers, Ruritan Clubs and participating in annual Fire Department fund raisers. Carol Manuel -- Carol started playing bass in 1998 and has not put it down since. The Bluegrass community showed her the heart and soul of the Bluegrass/Gospel bass. Carol has played Upright Bass for a variety of bands including the Gospel Keys, Narrow Passage and Doug Jimmerson (Tenor, Civil War Music). Carol derives great joy from playing the bass. Wade Manuel -- Wade comes from a background of Country and Bluegrass music as his father (Bill) has been performed Country and Bluegrass music for over 50 years. Wade first picked up a guitar in Vietnam (1972) and detoured for a while playing "Rock n Roll" rhythm guitar. In 1997, Wade bought his first mandolin and returned to his "roots" and has been playing Bluegrass and Bluegrass Gospel ever since. Wade is a former member of the Bluegrass Gospel band "Narrow Passage" and is one of the founding members of The Gospel Keys, which formed in 1999 to perform Good Old-Time Traditional Bluegrass Gospel Music.

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on June 15, 2019From Luray, VA

Ashby Run were professional, courteous and extremely entertaining. They were the perfect band for our wedding ceremony and reception, and all of our guests loved them. The music was fantastic. They were very responsive to emails and were really accommodating to all of our specific requests. We can't recommend them highly enough.

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on October 6, 2018From Lovettsville, VA

Ashby Run was a perfect match for our wedding! We had them play during the seating before the ceremony and then again for the cocktail hour. They were on time, easy to work with, and played fantastic music, the pefect accompaniment for our outdoor ceremony! Out guests really enjoyed it!
