The musical acts include:
No Filter: A great mix of fantastic cover B-sides and fun songs from every generation, with a twist from violin, mandolin, mandola, and a tenor guitar named Audrey.
Margaret Myren is a vocalist and violinist in No Filter and by day, she is the Parent-Child Program Teacher and Early Childhood Chair. She also is a DVWS parent alum! Her husband, Matt Myren, is DVWS Board President and on stage plays rhythm guitar and lead vocals. They are a dynamic duo - on stage and off.
Three Fine Pitches: The Three Fine Pitches are a predominantly a cappella singing trio. Although they rarely gig, it's always worth the wait, with a mix of classic, new folk, and original songs.
Elizabeth English is one of the women you'll see on stage, and she's also a parent to DVWS alumni, DVWS Music Teacher, Orchestra Teacher, Faculty Chair, & 8th Grade Handwork Teacher.
Mid Atlantic: Mid Atlantic is an acoustic guitar/mandolin trio, singing alternative rock, pop, and folk favorites from the last six decades.
Barry & Miriam Swann do vocals and guitar in Mid Atlantic and they also are parents to DVWS alum.
The Root Doctors With Kevin Purcell: Rockin' all-acoustic blues band featuring harmonica player extraordinaire/vocalist Kevin Purcell. Kevin is a founding member of DVWS.
"DaVinia is our way to let off some steam after the year we've all had. Our goal is to make people feel like they are at a high end outdoor concert venue, but for a fraction of the cost. We couldn't think of a better way to celebrate Summer with our community." - Morgan Branson
All proceeds from DaVinia will go directly to tuition assistance and building improvements.
**Please consider promoting this event. Band members available for in-Interviews available upon request. Day-of coverage is welcome, too. **
