A new young groove, with an authentic sound, Mason Via and Friends are no longer following the musical trends, but setting their very own." --Stokes County Arts Council "Mason Via is a talented song-writer and multi-instrumentalist from North Carolina, making his mark across the region in coffee houses, concert venues and festivals and was the winner of Shakori Hills’ Fall 2014 band contest.
