The tradition continues this year and once again the group is bringing along a bevy of special guests to join them each night. Opening on Dec. 30 will be Indiana jam act the Joe Marcinek Band — with guests Scott Jackson and Blair Ping of Hyryder and Eric Lanese of Ekoostik Hookah — and West Virginia “Appalachian Rock” quintet Fletcher’s Grove. Then, Lexington, Kentucky’s Restless String Band, Kansas City’s Grassfed and “Folk ’n Roll” duo the Pickin’ Pear will help RMB ring in 2020 on NYE.
