Mountain Heart brings high-powered acoustic Southern Rock & Bluegrass back to Green Lake
Come join us at the historic Thrasher Opera House in beautiful downtown Green Lake on Friday, October 19 at 7:30 p.m. and experience for yourself what legions of loyal fans all over the country have already discovered... this band rocks!
Mountain Heart is the band that has been fearlessly revolutionizing the way acoustic music can be presented and played. They've been around since 1999, but it wasn't until the soulful Josh Shilling joined the band as their lead singer in 2007 that they really hit their stride. 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.
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.
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.
Lead singer Josh Shilling summed up MH's live performances in a recent interview, "Mountain Heart is a very intense thing to see live. It's over the top with diversity: we play music from a lot of different genres. It's a very fiery, entertaining, energetic show; you're definitely not going to fall asleep watching it. That's why I became such a big fan of what the band is all about. It's a rockin' bunch of musicians. We'll be covering a lot of different songs from our favorite artists and bringing out tons of our new material and stuff from our latest record "That Just Happened." Diverse music, amazing musicianship, and intensity is how I'd sum it up."
