    With a style all their own, Mountain Highway® is an authentic young family band steeped in the traditional bluegrass and gospel music that was originally made famous by icons like Bill Monroe, Flatt & Scruggs, and Ralph Stanley. The band is comprised of four sibling singers who play banjo, fiddle, mandolin, and guitar, with their father playing upright bass. The teens are often heralded for their tight family harmony.

    After seeing them perform in Nashville, Debra Jean Wagoner said, “I had chill bumps. Their music transported me back to the days when my father Porter Wagoner took me to hear bluegrass at the Ryman Auditorium.”

    Bluegrass icon Jamie Dailey said, “When I heard angelic voices singing harmony to one another from a group called Mountain Highway, I was stunned! I’m a harmony buff and love hearing it done purely.”

    Mountain Highway hails from Lynchburg, Virginia, but travels each week to perform about a hundred times a year at popular music venues, festivals, fairs, and churches in several states. A few of their notable appearances have been at: Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver Festival (NC), HoustonFest/Galax (VA), Jerusalem Ridge Celebration (KY), North Barton Grange Bluegrass Festival (NY), Rue Farms Concert Series (OH), and Wind Gap Bluegrass Festival (PA).
