Proceeds fund Bridge of Hope efforts to end family homelessness in the Valley.

The mission of Bridge of Hope is to end and prevent homelessness for women and children with the help of trained mentoring groups within congregations. Single mothers achieve permanent housing and financial self-sufficiency through employment and attain stability and enhanced self-esteem through ongoing mentoring friendships. Our goal is to exemplify Christ's love and to promote physical, emotional, social, and spiritual wholeness.

The Walking Roots Band (TWRB) is an acoustic, Americana, folksy, blue-ish-grassy, roots music group based in Harrisonburg, VA. Steeped in Anabaptist hymn-singing traditions, the band’s original folk music and reclaimed hymns are supported with lush vocal harmonies. The music speaks of hope, whether through sacred words written hundreds of years ago or in the honest voice of one of the band’s songwriters. TWRB doesn’t make music full-time, but when they are able to tour, perform, record, or even just get together to practice and arrange new music, they are thankful for the fans, family, and friends who make it all possible.

Grounded in the rural, small-town urban, and global mosaic of Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley, the Clymer Kurtz Band’s songs express fun and intensity, routine and whimsy, challenge and satisfaction – and a smattering of hopeful detours. The Clymer Kurtzes’ songwriting, “…has a high level of originality: lyrically, melodically and emotionally,” writes former music radio host Mel Lee. “Their vocal harmonies are striking, and their arrangements are fresh....I don’t think they fit any easy categories, except that of excellence and artistic integrity.”
