Southwater is a collective of some of the finest bluegrass musicians in Charlottesville, VA, including Gabe Robey (also of The Harwell Grice Band), Dave Horgan (guitar/vocals),Rob Seal (mandolin/banjo), Patrick Flynn (upright bass/vocals), Mike Ioakimedes (mandolin/vocals), Nick Reeb (also of King Wilkie), Dave Krovetz (banjo), Camilla Ammirati (also of Millie and the Moonshine Boys), Andy Mansfield (also of Sun Baked Possum), Bubba Beasley & Sarah Candler (also of 40 Dolla Mule).  Southwater usually appears as a 3,4, or 5-piece band depending on the event.



Our individual musical backgrounds vary, encompassing a love for bluegrass, rock, country, jazz, blues, classical, celtic, and gospel traditions. Not surprisingly, Southwater's music stands at the crossroads of the old and the new, the traditional and the progressive. A typical Southwater set includes a range of traditional instrumental tunes, bluegrass standards, obscure covers, and original compositions.

But consistent within our performance is harmony singing, improvisation, and a "ragged but right" approach that doesn't take itself too seriously.

Southwater is available in the central Virginia area for wedding receptions, graduation parties, or any other special event. For more information, please contact Gabe Robey
