Saturday, Feb. 11, 7:30 p.m.—BRANDON—Snake Mountain Bluegrass returns to Brandon Music Saturday Feb. 11, 7:30 p.m. Whenever they play at Brandon Music it is to a sold out crowd.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 30 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.
This event is a part of Vermont Arts 2017, celebrating arts in Vermont.
