The Southern Rock, Bluegrass, Jam band Mountain Heart arrives in Green Lake on Labor Day weekend.
Mountain Heart is the band that has been fearlessly revolutionizing the way acoustic music can be presented and played. The band's name has been synonymous with cutting-edge excellence in acoustic music circles since the group's creation in 1999. Widely known throughout the music industry for continually redefining the boundaries of acoustic music, the band has gained legions of loyal fans both as a result of their superlative musicianship, and more notably, their incomparably exciting live performances.
Come join us at the historic Thrasher Opera House in beautiful downtown Green Lake on Sunday, September 4 at 7:30 p.m. and experience for yourself what those legions of loyal fans have already discovered... this band rocks! "I recommend people go to the Thrasher website to view a video of the band performing a rendition of the Allman Brothers' 'Whipping Post.' We're convinced that once they do, they'll want to come to see this award-winning band for themselves", says Roby Irvin, Program Director.
As one of the most highly awarded ensembles ever assembled, Mountain Heart, or members of the band, have either won or been nominated for Grammy’s, ACM, CMA, and multiple IBMA Awards. They have appeared on the revered stage of the Grand Ole Opry in excess of 125 times and have shared the stage with acts ranging from Lynyrd Skynyrd, Montgomery Gentry, Merle Haggard, George Jones and Brad Paisley to Alison Krauss, Tony Rice, The Avett Brothers, Yonder Mountain Stringband, Levon Helm, John Fogerty and Patty Loveless.
Mountain Heart's musical virtuosity, unmatched energy, and keen sense of entertainment dynamics have helped them to forge a highly unique sound, and stage show, which appeals to an incredibly wide variety of musical tastes. From large outdoor folk music and bluegrass festivals, to sold-out arena shows opening for Southern Rock icons, Lynyrd Skynyrd, to co-headlining concerts with the acoustic guitar legend, Tony Rice, Mountain Heart always makes an undeniable connection to an audience, leaving them on their feet. In short, this rare combination of abilities makes Mountain Heart one of the most versatile acts ever assembled.
This year will see Mountain Heart booked to play some of the most prestigious outdoor multi-genre festivals in the nation as well as theaters and clubs as they tour in support of their 7’th album, “That Just Happened”, which was released in late 2010 on their own imprint, MH Music Group.
