Music from the American Appalachian traditions….
Furnace Mountain, named for a mountain near where all the members grew up, consists of some of the most innovative and gifted musicians in Virginia.
Like the mountains and rivers, their sound reflects the soul of the region.
The band creates music that is at times lively and raucous with spirited fiddle melodies weaving in and around the powerful rhythms of the bass and bouzouki, and other times poignant and poetic, with sublime vocal harmonies beautifully interpreting some of the oldest songs ever written.
“Furnace Mountain are a truly exceptional group and deserve to be in the upper tier of American roots groups!” (Whispering Bob Harris, BBC Radio 2)
