About this Event

Town Mountain & The Jakob's Ferry Stragglers

May 8, 2020 | Rex Theater

7pm doors | 8pm show | All Ages

About Town Mountain:

Raw, soulful, and with plenty of swagger, Town Mountain has earned raves for their hard-driving sound, their in-house songwriting and the honky-tonk edge that permeates their exhilarating live performances, whether in a packed club or at a sold-out festival. The hearty base of Town Mountain's music is the first and second generation of bluegrass spiced with country, old school rock ‘n’ roll, and boogie-woogie. It's what else goes into the mix that brings it all to life both on stage and on record and reflects the group's wide-ranging influences – from the Grateful Dead's Jerry Garcia and the ethereal lyrics of Robert Hunter, to the honest, vintage country of Willie, Waylon, and Merle.

The Bend Bulletin’s Brian McElhiney says Town Mountain, “has serious country and rock ’n’ roll DNA.” Town Mountain features guitarist and vocalist Robert Greer, banjoist Jesse Langlais, mandolinist Phil Barker, fiddler Bobby Britt, and Zach Smith on bass.

The word "freedom" evokes all kinds of imagery: running through a wide expanse of untouched nature, setting off on one's own to explore parts unknown, standing up for deeply held beliefs – at the core, each of these manifests what it means to be free.

About Jakob's Ferry Stragglers:

Hailing from the mountain towns of Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and Maryland, The Jakob’s Ferry Stragglers draw freely from Old-Time, Bluegrass, Rockabilly, and Swing music to create their own brand of high energy, Appalachian Bluegrass. Gary Antol (guitar/vocals) and Libby Eddy (fiddle/vocals) founded the band in 2014 with a very simple goal: write good songs, honor the music, and take it to the road. In the time since, Jakob’s Ferry Stragglers has performed in clubs across the country and appeared at festivals including Delfest, Grey Fox, Delaware Valley Bluegrass Festival, and many more.
