Two of the top bluegrass and folk bands in the Americana music scene, Town Mountain and I Draw Slow, are headed to the Salem Civic Center on Friday, April 3, 2020.
Raw, soulful and with plenty of swagger, Town Mountain’s members have 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. The group’s latest album “New Freedom Blues” is its second consecutive album to debut in the Top 10 on the Billboard Bluegrass Chart. The album is full of new material and it features several guest artists, including Tyler Childers, Miles Miller and Sturgill Simpson.
Dublin, Ireland’s I Draw Slow has already won the adoration of fans in its home country and North America by combining American folk and Irish storytelling traditions with close-harmony vocals, intriguing instrumentation and compelling subject matter. And on their debut with Compass Records, “Turn Your Face to the Sun”, the band members add even more depth to their sound and songwriting.
