Erin & The Wildfire is a Charlottesville-based band that has been steadily carving out a reputation for themselves in recent years as one of the most captivating live acts to come out of Central Virginia since their formation in 2012. Fronted by powerhouse vocalist and Fincastle native Erin Lunsford, the band has been making waves throughout Virginia stirring up their unique sonic melting pot of rock, soul, funk, and blues.Season Passes The group’s striking sound, goofy charm, and relentless work ethic has propelled them to some of the Commonwealth’s biggest stages, including a main stage spot at 2014’s Lockn Festival, three appearances at Floydfest 2015, and back-to-back performances at the 2014 and 2015 Festy Experience.
