Bio: Dave Stallard, his wife, Susie, and their three kids, John Patrick, Ben, and Lindsay – along with lovable mutt, Fender – live in the mountains of Southwest Virginia. Seven hours a day, Dave is busy shaping – or warping – the future in his fifth grade science classroom. When not chasing kids in the evening, Dave can be found planning the Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion, an Americana music festival in Bristol, TN/VA, and compiling Trail Mix, an online music feature on the Blue Ridge Outdoors website.
