Asheville-based group Town Mountain will perform in Denver at The Bluebird Theater on September 1 and in Boulder at the Fox Theatre on September 2. Since their inception over a decade ago, Town Mountain has built a reputation for their rowdy, energetic performances, a testament to each member's refined musicianship. They’ve continued to make waves in both the studio and the live music circuit; from holding spots on the Billboard Bluegrass and Americana Radio charts for weeks to appearing on the legendary Grand Ole Opry stage multiple times. During their last tour in 2019, they played major festivals across the country and performed at Red Rocks Amphitheatre for the very first time, joining an all-star lineup alongside legend Robert Earl Keen and Grammy-nominee Tyler Childers.

At the sold-out Red Rocks debut, the band performed fan favorites “Down Low” and their unique rendition of Springsteen’s “I’m On Fire,” a single that has garnered nearly 12 million streams on Spotify alone.

Town Mountain is Jesse Langlais (banjo/vocals), Phil Barker (mandolin/vocals), Robert Greer (guitar/vocals), Bobby Britt (fiddle), and Zach Smith (bass). Since releasing their debut album Original Bluegrass and Roots Country in 2007, Town Mountain has amassed a sizable discography and made a name for themselves in the worlds of country, bluegrass, and Americana. They've toured with the who's who of roots musicians, including Ralph Stanley and His Clinch Mountain Boys, the Del McCoury Band, Greensky Bluegrass, Yonder Mountain String Band, and many others.

In 2016, Town Mountain made their Grand Ole Opry debut, performing both at the Opry House and at the famed Ryman Auditorium. Their most recent album, New Freedom Blues, was self-released in October 2018 and has garnered attention from fans and critics alike; including praise from Sirius XM, No Depression, The Bluegrass Situation, American Songwriter, The Boot, and Rolling Stone, who commented that the band is “reshaping a strict genre,” noting, “call it an evolution or a revolution, but it’s clear that Town Mountain is at the forefront.”
