ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Featuring musicians Aimee curl, Danny Knicely, Morgan Morrison, and Fiddlin' Dave Van Deventer on all 12 tracks, Furnace Mountain's 2009 release "Fields Of Fescue" is a must for any music lover.
'The American roots music motherlode just keeps producing treasure, none more winsome and exciting than this quartet who take their name from one of Virginia's most prominent peaks and their repertoire largely from the old-time, bluegrass and folk ballad traditions. Combining unadorned, honest singing with fiddle tunes that evoke both keening bagpipes and lonesome train whistles, interlaced with brilliantly audacious mandolin breaks, Furnace Mountain sound like a marriage between Be-Good Tanyas and the best bits of Nickel Creek - except with true Appalachian soil caked onto their boots' - Rob Adams
-The Herald (Scotland's biggest selling broadsheet)

"A Wonderful Band" "How Gorgeous is that?" -Bob Harris, BBC radio 2

"Blisteringly good roots music"
-AmericanaUK

"What a great record, So refreshing"
-Lee Williams,
CMR Nashville

"It's one of the best Americana albums I've heard all year." [of the new release, "Fields of Fescue"]
-Charles DeLint (musician and author of over 75 published books)

"Like the mountains and rivers, their sounds reflect the soul of the region"
- The Piedmont Virginian

"That's done me the world of good - this is great"
- Frank Hennessy, BBC Radio Wales [listening to Fields of Fescue]

"Receiving rave reviews here" - Iain Anderson, BBC Radio Scotland (after playing tracks from Fields of Fescue) at www.furnacemountain.com

"At its best, quite stunning” (review of Fields of Fescue)
-fRoots Magazine


“This band stands out because there is a freshness about their playing that makes the music sound new and vibrant. “Furnace Mountain is more than qualified to be mentioned in the same breath as the Be-Good Tanyas, and in some areas, is significantly better. “The music has more drive and attack and could never be accused of being twee, something of which the Tanyas have sometimes been guilty.”

- Maverick magazine (UK)

"A thrilling bluegrass romp that musicians of any musical extraction would be envious of"
- Blues Bunny

"This is infectious dancing music and begs to be heard"
- Paul Kerr, Round up Reviews
