“Painting the American landscape with words and music.”
These guys perform unique Americana music, mixing bluegrass, blues, country rock and jazz; and will be debuting many new original songs.
This Cafe performance will be recorded, to be included as part of their upcoming CD. Anyone who attends the show and signs up on the band’s email list will receive a free downloadable CD when the project is complete.
Bob Stump & The Blue Mountain Band band features Johnny Resk on percussion and vocals, Doug Moody on fiddle and vocals, Steve Sylvia on pedal steel, Pete Conklin on bass, and with special guests to be announced.
“The self-released 12 song CD from upstate New York’s Bob Stump & The Blue Mountain Band may well be the best bargain extant in roots music. Stump (guitar, vocals, songwriter), Roy Coates (bass, harmony vocals) and Tom White (fiddle, mandolin, harmony vocals), supplemented on half the tracks by the formidable Bill Keith on banjo, Andy Bing on dobro and mandolin and Guy ‘Fooch’ Fischetti on fiddle, go about their business with an easygoing grace, telling tales both poignant and warm-hearted, drawn as much from the ache as from the exhilaration of life on the road. On the band’s website Stump says he seeks to paint ‘the American landscape in words and music.’ The landscape in question is as much about inner geography as it is the lay of the land… and every bit as affecting. Anyone who has a heart will want to take this trip.” –David McGee, The Bluegrass Express
“Bob knows how Bluegrass fits into the puzzle of Americana music and brings that music to life.” –Jeffrey Anzevino, president and founder, Hudson Valley Bluegrass Association
