Snake Mountain Bluegrass
Saturday, February 11 at 7:30pm
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. Whenever they come to play for us, it is to a sold out crowd and a really fun night. The group is known for their vocal, instrumental, and original songwriting talents, plus a great sense of humor and onstage banter.
Founding members Gregg Humphrey (guitar and vocals) and Mike Connor (banjo and vocals) are joined by Earle Provin (mandolin and resophonic guitar), Mike Boise (bass), and Milo Stanley (fiddle). Hear songs like 'Fire on the Mountain' and 'Mr. Spaceman', some more traditional tunes such as 'Fox on the Run' and 'Head Over Heels in Love with You', as well as new songs they are recording for their upcoming album.
Retired Middlebury College Professor, Humphrey, and Middlebury construction company owner, Connor, formed Snake Mountain Bluegrass about thirty years ago. At the time, they were both 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.
