Wild Common

Event Details

Enjoy Fridays After Five, presented by Bud Light. Charlottesville’s favorite free live concert series will kick off of June 18 and continue each Friday thereafter through September 17.

Wild Common is a genre-defying “New Appalachian” band out of Charlottesville, Virginia. The whole is more than the constituent parts, but the constituent parts help understand the whole: Frontwoman Davina Jackson is a soul and gospel singer with a killer voice at the center of the band’s music. She used to sing back-up with the Wailers. Fiddle player Nate Leath won the famous Galax Fiddler’s Convention when he was 11 and has since grown into one of the most talented fiddlers of this generation. Drummer Rob Hubbard grew up in rural Virginia and went on to become an accomplished reggae drummer. Bassist Dhara Goradia has a long jazz pedigree. Keyboardist Bryan Holmes honed his unparalleled stylings in the hard streets of Raleigh, North Carolina. And songwriter and guitarist Brennan Gilmore has roots in old-time and bluegrass but has played fusion music across the globe. Last but not least, Davina’s son Atreyu Jackson picks up the mic to rap with the band.
