Visit Virginia: Flat Feet on Beat

Visit Virginia: Flat Feet on Beat

Written by Leslie Grace Meandering along winding roads through Southwest Virginia, one can almost hear the plaintive tones of Mother Maebelle Carter and Dr. Ralph Stanley echoing faintly. Jump in your car and start anywhere along The Crooked Road, Virginia Heritage Music Trail, for a musical journey. This 333-mile journey along the roads of Southwest...

Time moves quickly, way too fast, really. One moment you're docking up a pontoon boat filled equally with people you know and people that you don't, and the next, it's decorative gourd season. Now, fall in Virginia is an epic event, and there's a lot to look forward to. But summer, oh summer. Those warm...

Playlist: Jet-Setting with Betty Clicker

We’ve been working with Kate Thompson for quite a while now. You may recognize her as Betty Clicker, a childhood nickname that’s become her photography alias, and in the words of Kate, her figurative superwoman cape. Kate’s work carries distinct characteristics of deliberate composition, attention to atmosphere and wonderful, honest simplicity. Long story short —...

Take It To The Streets: Bloody Sunday Sessions

Take It To The Streets: Bloody Sunday Sessions

Music is as much a part of the framework of New Orleans as iron balconies and levee walls, so it only seemed right to plug into the music scene while visiting the city. We caught up with Eric Heigle, a New Orleans native who’s been in his hometown’s musical trenches for years. He’s an engineer...

Staff Resolutions

Playlist: Staff 2016 Resolutions

Despite popular opinion, we love January here at Ledbury HQ. The hectic and draining holiday season is finally behind us, we finally have a reason NOT to eat cookies, and we don't have to look at another holiday sweater for another 12 months. It's also the best time of year to take stock of the...

Playlist: Route 66 with Max Wastler

While it seems counterintuitive to embrace the cool when ensconced in the steamy south, the relentless humidity has given us an appreciation for crisp air and autumnal road trips like nothing else. We’ve been chummy with Max Wastler since we first discovered his tartan-loving blog, All Plaid Out a few years ago and were instantly...

Guest Playlist: Matthew E. White

Among the handful of talented musicians who call Richmond home is our pal Matt of Matthew E. White and Spacebomb Records. Matt and his band took on a throwback look for their most recent tour, rocking suits with none other than Ledbury shirts on stage. When Matt came to us to ask if he could...
