Miles over Mountains
Miles Over Mountains is a high energy, progressive bluegrass, centered around an arsenal of original material consisting of guitar, banjo, mandolin, and upright bass. MoM provides the listener with a paradoxical calming, yet exciting experience. The band somehow has the power to ease one’s worries while also forcing the crowd into a frenzy of dance.
