Snake Mountain Bluegrass to perform toe tapping bluegrass at Brandon Music

Saturday, Nov. 20 at 7:30 p.m. — BRANDON — Blue grass is the ultimate good-time music so Brandon Music is delighted to welcome back Snake Mountain Bluegrass on Saturday, Nov. 20 at 7:30 p.m. Always a firm favorite, 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. Snake Mountain Bluegrass were scheduled to perform at Brandon Music last year but with the impact of Covid-19 the venue was shuttered making their return even more welcome.

Founding members Gregg Humphrey (guitar and vocals) and Mike Connor (banjo and vocals) are joined by Earle Provin (mandolin and resophonic guitar), and their new bass player, Glenn Goodwin. Retired Middlebury College professor Humphrey and Middlebury former 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. Concert begins at 7:30 p.m.

Concert tickets are $25. A pre-concert dinner is available for $35. Reservations are required for dinners and recommended for the show and can be made online at brandon-music.net.  Venue is BYOB. Call 802-247 4295 or e-mail [email protected] for reservations or for more information.
