Furnace Mountain in Ireland, 28 Oct.-9 Nov. 2014

Following on from the BIB post of 25 Sept., thanks to Kate O‚ÄôLeary of Music Network (also on Facebook) for a reminder of the non-Northern Ireland part of the forthcoming tour by the Virginia string band Furnace Mountain, beginning next week.

Furnace Mountain - comprising Aimee Curl (bass, vocals), Danny Knicely (mandolin, vocals, fiddle), Dave Van Deventer (fiddle, vocals), and Morgan Morrison (bouzouki, vocals) - label themselves as 'ethno-Appalachian roots music'. The Music Network release says:

Straight from the Appalachian mountains, Virginian act Furnace Mountain unleash their own distinctive take on rootsy Americana, breathing new life into old-time, bluegrass, and folk tunes. At times lively and raucous, at times poignant and poetic, Furnace Mountain has won critical acclaim for its fresh, authentic sound. Heart-worn and effortlessly sweet vocal harmonies interweave with spirited fiddle playing to interpret some of the oldest songs ever written alongside original compositions.
