It was only five years ago that Sons of Bill (three literal sons of UVA philosophical theology and southern literature professor Bill Wilson, plus a drummer and bassist) took to the stage for a UVA battle of the bands and won three days of recording. Since that time, they’ve produced three albums, landed a management deal with Red Light Management (which they’ve since broken from), and played countless shows in Charlottesville to sold-out crowds wanting to hear their hometown heroes. Love Canon, the reincarnated bluegrass band comprising conservatory-trained musicians playing ’80s covers, is the town’s go-to party band for the Americana set.
