Town Mountain Featuring Robert Greer on Vocals:

“Rollicking straight-ahead fare, proto-rock, neo-trad country and jaunty boho picking”
–Jewly Hight, Nashville Scene

“Town Mountain… I’ve known these boys, seems like, forever..and I like ’em. They pick and sing with a passion you don’t find much these days, it’s refreshing and real good.  Put the cd in the truck, hit the parkway or some other good riding road, roll the windows down, and play it loud. PS. Watch out for the lawdog.” –John Roten, WPEK/WMXF

“A stone gem” –Mike Greenblatt, Aquarian Weekly

Highlights included the twisted waltz refrain within the title tune to the band’s recent album Leave the Bottle, the fierce fiddle and mandolin square-offs that sparked Four Miles and the Western slant of a new Robbie Fulks song, Long I Ride.”
–Walter Tunis, Kentucky.com in an review of The Festival of Bluegrass

Town Mountain Featuring Bobby Britt on Fiddle — “Four Miles”:

The Momentum Awards focus on artists and business people who are in the early years of their careers in bluegrass music. Five artists will receive performance awards, while three industry awards will go to key contributors in the bluegrass business. The Momentum Awards are not to be confused with the long-standing IBMA Awards, which are the gold standard for peer-recognized excellence in bluegrass music. The Momentum Awards will acknowledge something undeniable about bluegrass music—that many of its most dynamic artists and entrepreneurs are young or relatively new to the genre, and there are perhaps more artists playing bluegrass or bluegrass-related music than at any time in decades. IBMA looks forward to recognizing the best of them.

IBMA Momentum Awards are intended to encourage professionalism in bluegrass music among every generation.

Tickets to the IBMA Awards Show on Thursday, September 26 in Raleigh are still available at www.ibma.org. or by calling 888-GET-IBMA!
