The Red Mountain Boys are a hot new bluegrass supergroup lighting up the Pikes Peak region. A longtime staple of the scene, Alan Begley (Willie Bean Bluegrass) fronts the Boys with his Martin flat-top guitar. Lewis Mock (Kansas State Hall-of-Fame musician, Radford & Lewis Band) brings the fire with his five-string banjo. Jon Murphy (Grandpa’s Cough Medicine, The Grass is Dead) keeps the Boys rock solid with his metronome-like bass playing. Jeff Daugherty (2014 John Hartford Songwriting Award winner) plays his mandolin like a man possessed.
Take their instrumental prowess, add in four-part vocal harmonies and world-class songwriting and look out! It’s a recipe for powerful, hard-driving bluegrass music.

The Hammer & The Hatchet (John Bowyer & Jayme Hood) refined their musical artistries in the fabled hills of southern Indiana. They honed their skills and craft in the honest old-school tradition of putting in the time and collaborating with some of the most significant performers in their scene.
Their hard work has been paying off. With hundreds live performances in the last several years, and their long-awaited third Album “Road May Flood” hot off the presses, these road seasoned troubadours are swiftly traveling beyond their deep Bluegrass/New-grass/Americana roots, both musically and geographically, and into fresh territory where they have been defined as both “Authentic af” yet artistically “innovative and delightfully original”.
With masterful musicianship and endlessly appealing vocals, these genuinely adept co-writers never cease to deliver a deep well of originally introspective and heartfelt songs, of both comedy and tragedy, that consistently brings music lovers of all ages and sensitivities to their growing audiences.
