Town Mountain on Tour Spring and Summer 2014
Hard Drivin’ Bluegrass
.
After five days on the Caribbean for the Mountain Song at Sea, Town Mountain has their land legs back. They arrived back to Asheville just in time for the biggest snowstorm of the year.. quite the drastic change from the bluegrass cruise. Now we’re on the heels of spring, and man doesn’t it feel good.
.
Town Mountain will play couple of shows this winter in Virginia before heading over to Bellingham, WA to kick off festival season early at Wintergrass, an incredible festival where the people are sick-and-tired of the cold so they pretend it’s summertime and hold up in a hotel for a long weekend and pick, watch bands and celebrate the fact that spring is oh-so-near.
.
2014 is going to be Town Mountain’s busiest and best year yet; their schedule is bursting with music festivals and club shows throughout the country throughout the year. They celebrate spring’s arrival at Suwannee Springfest in Live Oak, FL. As the season progresses other festivals they will perform at include Durango Bluegrass MeltDown (CO), MerleFest (NC), Aiken Bluegrass Festival (SC), Lake Eden Arts Festival, Graves Mountain Festival (VA), Appalachian Uprising (OH), California Bluegrass Association Father’s Day Festival, and Bean Blossom (IN) before landing in Alaska for the Nome Midnight Sun Folk Fest to close out the season. They will pick back up in early July for summer shows including performances at RockyGrass (CO), Targhee Bluegrass Festival (WY) and more still yet to be announced.
.
The sound of the award-winning group Town Mountain can best be described as traditional bluegrass, albeit with a rough-hewn side to it that is not too slick or glossy. They are a band of the here-and-now, yet they have a groove that is based on the bluesy and swinging sounds explored by the first generation of bluegrass pioneers of the last century. Town Mountain is Robert Greer on vocals and guitar, Jesse Langlais on banjo and vocals, Bobby Britt on fiddle, Phil Barker on mandolin and vocals, and new addition to the band, Rob Parks on bass. The band plans on recording a new album in late 2014.
.
They’ve got lots of great new original material that they’re eager to play, and of course playing all the hits too. Keep your eyes on townmountain.net, facebook.com/TownMountain and twitter.com/TownMountain for full tour details and other fun news from the road.

“There’s a new mountain in town – Town Mountain – and they get down with heart, grit, soul, and drive! They’ll get you moving!”
–Jim Lauderdale

“Leave the Bottle‘s compositions are masterful, the interplay between the musicians is astounding, and Town Mountain supply it with an army of drive…
An absolute triumph of a record.”
Steven Spoerl, Pop Matters

“Centered around strong, soulful vocals, and poised to stay put. Town Mountain are true to bluegrass in all the right ways and this new project keeps them firmly connected to the traditions of the genre, while also allowing them to reach out into the broad horizon of string band music.”
–Woody Platt of the Steep Canyon Rangers

“I’m not sure what the definition of bluegrass would be in words alone, but if that definition was set to music, it would probably sound something like Town Mountain’s new Pinecastle Records release, ‘Leave the Bottle’… I could go on. There are no duds, and no filler songs on this project, which was produced by Mike Bub. But you get the point. This, my friends, is how bluegrass is supposed to sound.” –David Morris, Bluegrass Today
