MEDIA ALERT: Town Mountain at The Soundry on 11/1
Asheville-based group Town Mountain will perform at The Soundry on November 1 in support of their acclaimed recent album New Freedom Blues. Since their inception over a decade ago, Town Mountain has continuously redefined modern roots music, making waves in both the studio and the live music circuit; from holding spots on the Billboard Bluegrass and Americana Radio charts for multiple weeks, to appearing on the legendary Grand Ole Opry stage and Red Rocks with Tyler Childers and Robert Earl Keen. Their recent release New Freedom Blues has been praised by SiriusXM, No Depression, The Bluegrass Situation, American Songwriter, The Boot, and Rolling Stone Country, who named the group an “Artist You Need to Know”.
Known for their rowdy, energetic performances, Town Mountain’s live show is a testament of each member’s refined musicianship. Rolling Stone recently commented that the band is “reshaping a strict genre”, adding, “Call it an evolution or a revolution, but it’s clear that Town Mountain is at the forefront.”
Comprised of Jesse Langlais (banjo/vocals), Phil Barker (mandolin/vocals), vocalist/guitarist Robert Greer, fiddle player Bobby Britt, and bassist Zach Smith, Town Mountain recorded New Freedom Blues at Asheville’s iconic Echo Mountain Studios with producer Caleb Klauder. The 11 tracks that comprise the album span the sum total of the band’s eclectic influences, from traditional bluegrass to roots pop to hardscrabble honky tonk, and features drummer/Sturgill Simpson collaborator Miles Miller, as well as a co-write with Tyler Childers.
GRAMMY winner, producer, and musician Buddy Miller said of the group, “Town Mountain aren’t out to reinvent the wheel, they’re like a new set of the finest tires that gives you a new ride. There’s no fat, no gratuitous notes, no extra stuff, just amazing songs, singing and playing from one of the best bands out there… or maybe they are the new wheel.”

This looks like another opportunity for me to attend another show at The Soundry. If I attend I will be taking lots of photos and short videos (like I have done in the past).
The Soundry is quickly becoming a favorite spot for me to listen to some wonderful bands as they pass through the area. If you have not been to The Soundry in Columbia yet…be sure to check it out soon.
