The Ayr Mountaineers are an Americana/Country band rooted in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. All songs are originally written by singer/guitarist Ella Bertram, with an array of handsome boys standing behind her in support. Their backporch-pickin’ sound warms the heart, taps the toes, and makes the bodies shake. On stage you will find Alan Best on the accordion and mandolin, Jack Fleishman on banjo, Stacy Harden playing bass, and Jennifer Curtis on the Violin. Since fall 2010 they have been playing in and around the Triangle, filling restaurants, bars, clubs and parks with their unique mountainous sound. Early 2012 marks the release of their debut, self-titled album which, as you will find, flows like a crisp mountain stream into a whiskey still.
