John Way (Emcee)

Having attended the inaugural Delfest (and every Delfest since then), John Way is beyond excited to Emcee the festival for a 2nd year in a row and be a member of this year’s Delfest Team. A seven (7) year Army Veteran and a Social Entrepreneur from Columbia, Maryland  John founded The VA Way in 2014, a non-profit that helps Veterans cultivate mental wellness through live music, yoga, and Mental Health First Aid trainings.  His organization, The VA Way has helped nearly a 100 Veterans and their families rise above homelessness or addiction by assisting with employment, housing and overall mental wellbeing.
He feels lucky to have Emceed the award-winning Charm City Bluegrass Festival for the last seven (7) years and plays a vital role in improving the local music community through his work with the historic Baltimore music venue, The 8x10.  His mottos, fun sure is fun and I have NO complaints show through in everything he does. He brings not only talent and professionalism, but warm smiles, loving hugs and the best DEL-bows you’ll find all weekend. Del-Yeah!
