WoundTight is an award winning Bluegrass band comprised of dynamic musicians from Southwest Virginia. Led by brothers Chris and Ray “Mike” Martin, WoundTight’s unique sound brings forth innovative and sophisticated renderings of their traditional bluegrass roots. Their energetic bluegrass style has captured the attention of fans and judges alike resulting in first place winnings at both the 20th Annual Maury River Fiddlers Convention and the 24th Annual Sedalia Bluegrass Festival. WoundTight continues to excel in their musical genre placing in the top 15 at the Galax Old Fiddler’s Convention in 2014 and 2016.
In 2015 WoundTight moved onto the bluegrass festival scene. WoundTight graced the stage at Chantilly Bluegrass festival for the first time in May of 2015. The band kicked off the Wayside Bluegrass festival in July 2015 with their unique hard driving style of bluegrass. WoundTight has maintained their festival presence being asked to perform at many of these same venues in 2016 and 2017.
Many band members have won individual awards and have many musical accomplishments. WoundTight is known for playing straight up traditional bluegrass music, classic country tunes with a bluegrass twist and recently have added their own original material.
Wound Tight exited 2016 with a lot of momentum. The band has been in the studio over the winter working on a new project “No More Rain” produced by Steve Dilling and Skip Cherryholmes.
