Town Mountain w/ Stringus Khan at Woodlands Tavern
Raw, soulful, and with plenty of swagger, Town Mountain has earned raves for their hard-drivingsound, their in-house songwriting and the honky-tonk edgethat permeates their exhilarating liveperformances, whether in a packed club or at a sold-out festival. The hearty base of Town Mountain'smusic is the first and second generation of bluegrass spiced with country, old school rock ‘n’ roll, andboogie-woogie. It's what else goes into the mix that brings it all to life both on stage and on record andreflects the group's wide-ranging influences–from the Grateful Dead's Jerry Garcia and the ethereallyrics of Robert Hunter, to the honest, vintage country of Willie, Waylon, and Merle. The Bend Bulletin’sBrian McElhiney says Town Mountain, “has serious country and rock ’n’ roll DNA.” Town Mountainfeatures guitarist and vocalist Robert Greer, banjoist Jesse Langlais, mandolinist Phil Barker, fiddlerBobby Britt, and Zach Smith on bass.
