Snake Mountain Bluegrass

 

Saturday, October 27 at 7:30pm
Live Performance >

Seven Days said it best: Snake Mountain's “toe-tapping tunes combine the best of modern and traditional bluegrass”. With harmonies and songs that vary in tempo from “breakdown” to ballad, this popular Addison County group consistently puts on a fun show for everyone. Their upcoming concert at Brandon Music on October 27 will feature tunes from their new album, “For Keeps,” as well as many traditional favorites.

“For Keeps” centers around the original instrumental tune of the same name, written by mandolin and resophonic guitar player Earle Provin. The album includes songs about rites of passage and various sentiments from lost love in the song, ‘Lonely Comes Easy,' to Mike Connor's original take on species decline called ‘The Last Snowy Owl.' ‘Snapshots and Souvenirs' looks back on one's life by paging through a photo album, while ‘Where Corn Don't Grow' reflects on words of wisdom from a parent – once ignored but finally understood.

Retired Middlebury College Professor, Gregg Humphrey, and Middlebury construction company owner, Connor, formed Snake Mountain Bluegrass about thirty years ago. At the time, both Humphrey (guitar and vocals) and Connor (banjo and vocals) were living near Snake Mountain and someone asked them what style of bluegrass they played. “Snake Mountain Bluegrass,” was their immediate response and the name has been theirs ever since.

They are joined by Provin and Jacob Blumberg (bass). Provin is a graphic artist living in Poultney. Blumberg recently moved to Middlebury from Brooklyn. He works as a producer, mastering engineer and multi-instrumentalist for Mason Jar Music with studios in Brooklyn and Nashville.
