What to Expect
THE MASONS have performed at Music Festivals, City Events, Private Events and Parties, Theaters, Clubs, Restaurants, Hotels, Bars & Grills and Coffee Houses from Pennsylvania to Florida.
If you're looking for a toe-tappin', hand clappin', get up and dance, evening of entertainment with West Virginia Mountain humor included and good times for all ages; THE MASONS are for your event or live music venue!
The Masons are a high-energy husband/wife acoustic duo delivering a toe-tappin' show of original songs, songs that you forgot you knew, and some twists on popular favorites!!
Skip Mason started pickin' on an acoustic guitar at the age of 10 and from that point music was the focus of his life taking him on a melodic adventure of rock 'n roll, blues, country...even a Florida beach band... His Appalachian roots have helped him develop a style which mixes all of these influences into an upbeat, fun genre of its own.
Cindi Mason was always drawn to music and found her own expression of this love on the upright bass, which would ultimately add the perfect accompaniment that Skip had been longing for. Her vocal harmonies blended naturally with Skip's lead vocal, taking the two on a musical journey together, and thus "The Masons" had begun.
Over the past few years, The Masons have evolved with tight arrangements, smooth harmonies, and their ability to put their own Appalachian spin on familiar songs, which has generated enthusiastic audience support from the numerous performances throughout their home state of West Virginia, and along the East Coast.
The Masons are Skip and Cindi. Skip plays acoustic guitar, provides lead vocals, and keeps the audience entertained with his humor. Cindi plays "Momma" the upright bass, adds harmony vocals, and keeps their show on the road.
