FIRE MOUNTAIN & ARTHUR ALLIGOOD, 8:00 pm. $10 in advance / $13 day of show.
Fire Mountain makes real music. That’s it. They take folk and rock music sensibilities and combine them into something more, something that you can’t put your finger on. It’s just something that feels right and real. Fire Mountain writes songs about the struggles, triumphs, and questions in life that everyone can relate to. Their songs contain, as listeners describe, “a universal message.” Fire Mountain has been influenced by and compared to: Fleet Foxes, Ray Lamontagne, Iron & Wine, Damien Rice, and Wilco. They are touring in support of their second CD, Of the Dust.
Nashville's Arthur Alligood is grand winner of the 2011 Mountain Stage Newsong Contest, selected from over 2,000 entries. As the grand prize winner, Alligood will go into the studio with producer, songwriter and hitmaker Mikal Blue (James Blunt, Jason Mraz, Colbie Caillat) to record an EP that will be released on Brooklyn’s NewSong Recordings label. “Arthur is exactly the kind of artist I was hoping to meet thru the NewSong Contest,” stated Blue. “While remaining very true to his art, his lyrical and melodic sensibilities make his songs very accessible and his rich vocal tone captivates the listener. I can’t wait to see what we come up with in the studio!”
Additionally, Arthur will perform live on an internationally broadcast Mountain Stage show on NPR, hosted by Larry Groce who served as one of the contest’s judges. “Arthur Alligood came out on top of an extremely strong group of five finalists that were chosen from a field of over 2,000 contest entries,” said Groce. “His performances are subtle and powerful, his songs are original and he’s an artist who knows who he is and is not afraid to do things his own way. I look forward to having him as a guest on Mountain Stage.” Here he is singing "Hold On" live.
