The Songcatchers will perform Saturday at John W. Eye Conference Center as part of the continuation of the Appalachian Visions program. They are, from left, Jordan Young (mandolin), Bill Atkinson (baritone singer and mandolin), Ashley Lilly (lead singer), Brian Taylor (bass), Dr. Everett Lilly, Daniel Gravley (second guitar), and Blaine Johnson (banjo). The group has been featured on nationwide public television and on Mountain Stage with country music star and West Virginia native Kathy Mattea. The group formed as a product of jam sessions held in association with a social work program Lilly began and now leads for University of Charleston-Beckley.
