Asheville-based group Town Mountain will perform in Charlotte at the Visulite Theatre on July 25 in support of their acclaimed album New Freedom Blues. Since the band’s inception over a decade ago, Town Mountain has continuously redefined modern bluegrass, 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.
Known for their rowdy, energetic performances, Town Mountain’s live show is a testament of each member’s refined musicianship.
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.
