Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Owensboro, KY -- Town MountainCome on down to the Bluegrass Museum! You can see and hear a rip-roaring, thrilling group called Town Mountain, who are performing a benefit concert for the museum. These fine folks are traveling all the way from the mountains of North Carolina, just to entertain you!

Town Mountain's years of touring have created a mature well-traveled sound, a telepathic pickin' style filled with mesmerizing interplay, and intoxicating rhythms that energize every tune. Town Mountain is based in traditional bluegrass, with deep roots in classic country and old-time mountain music.

Banding together in 2005, Town Mountain is Phil Barker on mandolin and vocals, Robert Greer on lead vocals and guitar, Jesse Langlais on banjo and vocals, Bobby Britt on fiddle, and newest member Jon Stickley rounds them out with his steady bass and rock-solid guitar and vocals. They share the kind of easy-going friendly bond that relays itself through their music. One listen to their instantly memorable songs, and it’s plain to see why Grammy-winner Mike Bub would align with the group to produce Leave the Bottle as well as 2011’s Steady Operator, both through Pinecastle Records. Banjo player extraordinaire and longtime member of the Sam Bush Band, Scott Vestal, also joined the team by engineering the new album, which was recorded at Digital Underground Studio in Nashville, TN.

The concert will begin Friday October 26 at 7:30 p.m. with wine and hors d'oeuvres served at 7:00 p.m. Tickets are $15 and may be purchased in advance at the museum's gift shop, or at the door on the night of the performance.

To reserve a ticket, please call 270-926-7891. Don't wait too long because seating is limited.
