Meadow Stage - 3:00PM
Described as sounding like Bob Schneider, The Tallest Man on Earth, G. Love, Old Crow Medicine Show, and David Gray, Justin Trawick and the Common Good is a high energy "urban americana” band packed full of emotional raw musicianship, heartfelt lyrics, and powerful harmonies. With music ranging from bluegrass to hip hop the band has managed to create a sound that is completely unique, captivating crowds all over the East Coast. Based in Washington DC, the band has opened for over 30 national acts including Suzanne Vega, Brett Dennen, Blues Traveler, Bob Schneider, and Edwin McCain, and shared bills with Dr. Dogg and The Avett Brothers. In June of 2015, Trawick released his first single with his band “Justin Trawick and the Common Good.” Written about the search for direction and belonging in a world that constantly feels one step ahead of you, “Goodbye” is available for download on iTunes along with a music video documenting the recording session available on YouTube. Founder of the nationally touring show “The 9 Songwriter Series” and co-founder of “The Circus Life Podcast" with guests such as Kevin Eubanks, Chris Thomas King, Ernie Halter, Yarn, and Snuffy Walden, Trawick has built a brand that extends beyond just being a musician local to DC. In February of 2014, Trawick won “Song of the Year” at the Washington Area Music Awards for his song “All the Places That I’ve Been," which can be downloaded on iTunes as a single along with his five other solo records and EPs.
