Snake Mountain Bluegrass
Saturday, July 23 at 7:30pm
This fun and energetic group is extremely popular and always sells out in Brandon! Snake Mountain's “toe-tapping tunes combine the best of modern and traditional bluegrass”, according to Seven Days, with harmonies and songs that vary in tempo from “breakdown” to ballad. They are known for their vocal, instrumental, and original songwriting talents , plus a great sense of humor and onstage banter.
Retired Middlebury College Professor, Gregg Humphrey, and Middlebury construction company owner, Mike 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 Earle Provin (mandolin and resophonic guitar) and Mike Boise (bass). Boise is a house painter and owns and operates Union Street Audio Studio in Brandon, while Provin is a graphic artist living in Poultney.
Mike Connor will be playing guitar on several songs with Mike Boise singing lead vocals for songs such as “Green, Green Grass of Home” and “Mr. Spaceman.” Gregg Humphrey leads on some of the more traditional tunes such as “Fox on the Run.”
