Earlier this year, Bozeman, Montana’s Kitchen Dwellers released their third full-length album Wise River. Since the release, the band has skyrocketed to consistently packed out venues and festival appearances with no signs of slowing down. This past Sunday, July 3 following Billy Strings’ performance at Pier Six Pavillion in the Baltimore Harbor, the grammy-winning flat picker surprised fans by making a guest appearance at the Dwellers’ after-party at the 8x10. Strings joined the Montana based bluegrass outfit for a handful of tunes including a cover of Bob Dylan's “Tombstone Blues” and Bill Monroe’s song “Big Mon.”
Video of the performance is available now.
The Dwellers continue their East Coast run today at the Levitt Pavilion in Westport, CT and will tour throughout the summer making stops at iconic venue and festivals along the way.
The quartet—Shawn Swain [Mandolin], Torrin Daniels [banjo], Joe Funk [upright bass], and Max Davies [acoustic guitar]—twist bluegrass, folk, and rock through a kaleidoscope of homegrown stories, rich mythology, American west wanderlust, and psychedelic hues.
Among the many natural wonders in Montana, Wise River runs for about 30 miles through the Southwestern region of the state, cutting through the mountains and flowing into the Big Hole River. Beyond being a favorite spot for fly fishermen, it remains etched into the topography of the land itself. Two hours away in Bozeman, Kitchen Dwellers equally embody the spirit and soul of their home with a sonic palette as expansive as Montana’s vistas.
