From the band’s team
Town Mountain is excited to announce they will be hitting the road in support of Railroad Earth next month. The run of dates kicks off with a two night stand in Atlanta at the Variety Playhouse on January 14th and 15th, followed by a hometown performance at The Orange Peel in Asheville, and wrapping up in Birmingham and Tuscaloosa respectively.
Town Mountain’s hard drivin’ bluegrass sound, tight harmonies, and stellar in-house songwriting have become the band’s trademark. They light up the stage with their honky tonk edge and barroom swagger, featuring a Jimmy Martin-style bounce and confidence that is countered at times by a laid-back John Hartford-esque groove. Town Mountain includes Robert Greer on vocals and guitar, Jesse Langlais on banjo and vocals, Bobby Britt on fiddle, Phil Barker on mandolin and vocals, and Adam Chaffins on bass.
Town Mountain just wrapped up the final touches of their 5th studio album which is due out in the Spring of 2016. Produced and engineered by GRAMMY winner Dirk Powell, the album was recorded in Powell’s studio The Cypress House in south Louisiana. To warm everyone up this winter, they released a two-track disc of their favorite tunes from the Grateful Dead’s catalog called The Dead Session, that has some snazzy artwork to go along with it; it will be available at the shows!
