Whether it's classical music for your wedding, drivin' bluegrass for your barbecue, or funky soul for your birthday party, look no further than this talented young duo of NC natives.
Waverly Leonard is a singer, banjo player, and classically trained violinist from Wilmington, NC who fell in love with Irish fiddle, old time, and bluegrass during college, and can seamlessly switch between styles depending on the desires of the audience.
Mason Via is an award winning singer, songwriter, mandolinist, bassists, and guitarist from Danbury, NC, who has released two albums- "Up, Up, Up," featuring all originals, and a collaboration album with Tom Mindte of Patuxent Music.

What to Expect
Mason and Waverly have mastery over many different genres of music, from old time square dance music to mashin' bluegrass to relaxing Celtic music to classical virtuosic violin music. This makes them a perfect duo to hire for wedding music, as they can quickly transition from serious bridal walk music like Palchebel's Canon and Meditations from Thais to lively bluegrass instrumentals for recessionals. Mason and Waverly can play anything the bride and groom request with skill and verve.
