‘Groovin’ in the Hill’ brings music & food trucks to Oak Hill this weekend

By Stephen Baldwin, RealWV

Tired of seeing Oak Hill residents visit other communities for weekend activities, local organizer Allyson Wyatt has put together “Groovin’ in the Hill” as a summer concert/food truck series. The series begins downtown this Saturday at the Lively Family Amphitheater.

“How could you not love good food and good music?” Allyson says. “All ages are welcome to this family-friendly event.” 

Food trucks will begin serving folks at 3pm. You can expect to see the following food trucks lining the streets: Holy O’s, Hungry Hutt, Aurora Ice, Twisted Sisterz BBQ, New River Slices, MADD Concessions, Hilltop Coffee, Dre Dayz BBQ, AOTG Adventures on the Go, The Big Lebowlski, and Susan Jones. 

Then the music begins at 6pm with Grammy winner Chance McCoy and Tessa Dillon. McCoy plays with Old Crow Medicine Show and is originally from West Virginia. He won a Grammy for Best Folk Album in 2014. He will be joined by renowned West Virginia fiddle player Tessa Dillon. 

Then Matt Mullens and the Bringdowns take the stage at 8pm. While hard to categorize, some call them an alt-country band with an Appalachian twist. 

“I’m so excited it’s actually happening,” Allyson tells us.  “I’ve been working on this since january. I hope our community and towns come in and enjoy it!”

Allyson pitched Groovin’ in the Hill to the Lively Family and the City of Oak Hill, and they both are proud supporters of this new concert/food series. “We couldn’t do this without them,” remarks Allyson. 

The series will continue on July 15, August 12, and September 9 with a mix of local and well-known artists. All concerts are free. Attendees purchase their own food from vendors. 

Stay tuned to RealWV for previews of upcoming concerts in the series this summer.
