Mountain Ride w/ The Wallace Brothers

 

Mountain Ride

Mountain Ride was forged in the Great Valley of south-central Pennsylvania, for the simple need to play bluegrass. For these five friends, bluegrass is a necessity. Hailing from the new generation of bluegrassers, they tend to bring a unique flair to the traditional, and a progressive twist to the original. Mountain Ride is composed of Eric Avey (guitar and vocals), Chance Hurley (mandolin), Scott Matlock (fiddle and vocals), Corey Woodcock (banjo), and Kate Avey (bass and vocals). With years of experience under their straps and strings, they have found something new, something that can only be described as Mountain Ride.

Influences
Bluegrass harmony, Acoustic music by the fire, Drama free, feel good bluegrass. Of course, good beer.

 

 

The Wallace Brothers

Performing songs about sleeping in a car, being broke, non-conformity, love so strong it hurts, joy, traveling the world, and spending the night in the pen, The Wallace Brothers Band lives the life they sing about. Their wanderlust and love of all forms of music can be heard in their music and lyrics.

The Wallace Brothers Band can be described as psychedelic-country or folk-rock music, but their repertoire digs deep into the world of rock and roll, bluegrass, jazz, R&B and soul music.

The band has had the honor of working with and/or sharing the stage with Robert Hunter and Tom Constantine of The Grateful Dead, David Bromberg, Larry Campbell (Bob Dylan), Rusted Root, The New Riders of the Purple Sage, Ricky Skaggs, MOE., Mickey Melchiando and Claude Coleman (Ween), Evan Dando of The Lemonheads, Leon Rhodes of The Ernest Tubb Texas Troubadours, Railroad Earth, Cabinet, Frog Holler, Junior Brown, and many more.

Influences
Nashville, Menonites, hippies, comedy, food, cats, and women. Some musical
influences would be The Grateful Dead, Merle Haggard, CSNY, Hank Williams,
Ray Charles, and much, much, much more.
