Town Mountain To Honor Grateful Dead!

Town Mountain at The Festival of Bluegrass.  2015Town Mountain is heading into the studio for an impromptu recording session during the summer of 2015.

For this impromptu summer project, Town Mountain will be cutting two songs to pay tribute to The Grateful Dead.

The Dead has had a huge influence on Town Mountain as a whole and each of its members.

Banjoist Jesse Langlais says, “We want to honor their 50 year mark tour with Town Mountain renditions of two of our favorite Grateful Dead songs.”

Look for these two new tunes this festival season.  

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.
