Dodgy Mountain Men / Bio

The Dodgy Mountain Men sling a home-brewed Montana stompgrass that goes down smooth but packs a bite, mixing the rhythms of bluegrass, the soul of the blues and the energy of rock 'n' roll with a plethora of other musical traditions to create a diverse electro acoustic experience. The group's genre-bending experimentation and passion for American roots traditions weave together to emphasize their lyrical storytelling, creating a musical frontier rife with empty mason jars, outlaws, gypsy women and cold Montana storms. Add original voices, unique instrumentation, and live performances that build to a fever pitch,and you've got a concoction that will make moonshiners proud and compel dancers to wear out the soles of their shoes.

Dodgy Mountain Men released their debut album, "Stronger than Death," in the spring of 2012 and have played shows across the country in support of the album. Over the last two years they have played premium slots at festivals including the John Hartford Memorial Festival (IN), Spring Blossom (PA), Love Your Mother Earth Festival (MT) and River City Roots (MT), to name a few. They have also had the pleasure of sharing more intimate stages with acts such as The Devil Makes Three, Greensky Bluegrass, Scott Biram, Jerry Joseph and the Jackmormons, Whitewater Ramble, Dead Winter Carpenters, Fruition, Hillstomp, and many more. DMM intend to follow their music wherever it takes them, like the rhythm and roar of a freight train crisscrossing the tapestry of the Great American West.
