Snake Mountain Bluegrass

 

Saturday, October 21 at 7:30pm
Watch a live performance

Snake Mountain's “toe-tapping tunes combine the best of modern and traditional bluegrass” (Seven Days) with harmonies and songs that vary in tempo from hard driving ‘breakdowns' to softer, folk-type arrangements. 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). Fans will be thrilled to hear the band is putting together a new album with several originals. Come to the concert to preview a few of the tunes, like ‘For Keeps', a song written by Provin. You'll also hear some covers such as Alison Kraus' ‘Dream of Me', an old country tune originally sung by Vern Gosdin, and songs like ‘Up and Down the Mountain', ‘Mr. Spaceman', ‘Fox on the Run' and ‘Head Over Heels in Love with You'.

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.
