Music on the Mountaintop 2012

Music on the Mountaintop 2012
This year marked the 5th anniversary of the Music On The Mountaintop festival with two nights of Railroad Earth making it their own.

The festival started on Friday and ran through Sunday closing out with the Sam Bush Band. Unlike past years, the festival consisted of just one stage nestled between the picturesque views of the mountains in Foscoe County located near Boone NC. Surrounding the stage were vendors of all sorts. Gifts of stain glass, beautiful jewelry and clothing for all could be purchased here. Food vendors were in the area as well to cure our hunger.

New Releases:

Old Crow Medicine ShowOld Crow Medicne Show - Carry Me Back CD - Carry Me Back is the band's fourth studio album and features 12 brand new tracks that sonically span the band's career while still pushing them forward in new directions as musicians and songwriters. The album was recorded at the legendary Sound Emporium studios in Nashville (O Brother, Where Art Thou?; REM's Document; Robert Plant and Alison Krauss's Raising Sand).

Carry Me Back was produced by Ted Hutt (Gaslight Anthem, Dropkick Murphys, Flogging Molly). Hutt pushed the band in a whole new way that they hadn't been pushed before. "Ted Hutt asked us to really dig deep as artists, as songwriters, to get to the heart of the matter of these songs and, especially, not to settle for anything less than their greatness," recalls Ketch Secor of the band. Secor is also very proud of the result of the band's songwriting efforts on the album, saying "For me, Carry Me Back is all about the songs, how they line up, intertwine, switch partners, and promenade home. Each of these songs was an accident waiting to happen."

Last Week:

Keller Williams - Pick CDKeller Williams with the Travelin' McCourys - Pick CD - For the brand new recording Pick, singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Keller Williams teams up with Nashville's beloved bluegrass family The Travelin' McCourys. As revered and successful as each act is in their own right, Pick is a classic case of the whole being greater than the sum of its parts. Recorded at Music City's famed Butcher Shoppe studios, the album's 12 songs - a mix of originals and covers - put a unique twist on Americana music's long storytelling tradition, and the impeccable musicianship displayed on Pick captures all the heart and heartache of the bluegrass genre. But the songs don't stop there. Williams' unconventional songwriting takes on unsuspecting weight when backed by The Travelin' McCourys' emotive tones. Inspired by Keller's fearless creativity, the McCourys' flawless playing gets depth. Keller Williams with The Travelin' McCourys: It's a perfect, albeit unexpected fit.

Music on the Mountaintop 2011

This year’s MOTM took place at the gorgeous Grandfather Mountain Campground near Boon, NC.

FRIDAY

Unlike last year there was plenty of space to camp and it looked as if the campground was setup perfectly for a festival.  Campers surrounded two nice size fields. The first field was the location of the 3rd stage which had food and craft venders as well as a fantastic global structure built within it.  The second field housed the main stage and 2nd stage.  The 2 stages were small and basically the same size setup next to one another which kind of resembled the All Good Music Festival setup on a much smaller scale.
