Featuring 3 WV Artists
Join us at the Berkeley County Youth Fairgrounds on Wednesday August 3rd at 7:00PM in the Track Area for a night of live music at the “Bringing It Back Home” Concert 💛💙
We have three fan-favorite West Virginia artists that are rising stars, making their mark on the airwaves and will no doubt put together a concert event like never before at the BCYF. All three Nashville recording artists will be bringing their chart-rising songs to the fairgrounds for back to back performances that will BRING IT BACK HOME🏠
One of those artists, returning for her second year in a row at BCYF is Morgan White. Born in the Southern coalfields of WV, Morgan is referred to as a modern day “Coal Miner’s Daughter”! Her first album entitled “I’m Gone” produced TWO #1 Singles! 2019 proved to be a huge year for Morgan at the Josie Music Awards with THREE NOMINATIONS and taking home the coveted FEMALE ENTERTAINER OF THE YEAR award! In 2021, Morgan INKED a deal with NashTown Entertainment! She is currently taking COUNTRY MUSIC RADIO by STORM with her brand new single, “Take Me”🎙
The second artist is Chris Darlington, who was raised in the Eastern Panhandle of WV. Chris later found himself on the Nashville stages of The Second Fiddle, The Stage, Tootsies and Crossroads, directly in the heart of Broadway. His artistry led him to write and record nine tracks in Nashville music studios. His streaming history on Spotify reflects over 200,000 streams and 93,000 listeners, with streams in 124 countries. Currently a Deputy Sheriff, Chris released a track titled “Hold That Line” in March 2022 written about his 17 year career in Law Enforcement. His newest release “”Stay For A Little While” dropped in April to radio and is making it’s way down the Music Row charts.
Our final Artist spotlight is local favorite – the Nathan Bartgis Band. Born and raised in Berkeley County WV, Nathan grew up on his grandparents farm in Hedgesville. With many valuable lessons and skills learned that growing up on a farm in a blue collar family offers, it produced an unexpected talent found in 2014 after accepting Jesus and becoming saved. After many years of writing songs and testing them out at local venues, Nathan took his songs to Nashville and recorded his first EP Album In 2019 labeled “That Kinda Man”, with several songs off of this album such as “Coming Home” and “Cold and Lonesome” topping independent artist music charts. He continues to keep the momentum going with his band, an original country/southern rock band that brings a unique, but authentic sound that you don’t want to miss! In addition to Bartgis, the band consists of Michael Lehew, Troy Lehew, and Brian Martin. With the newest single “Country” released in March 2022, you’ll find yourself reminiscing on a 90’s country sound with a little bit of rock-n-roll.
