Leeds Arts Council Presents Shades Mountain Air Band
Springing from the suburban hills and valleys south of Birmingham, SHADES MOUNTAIN AIR performs an accoustic music style that’s soothing but powerful – with shades of bluegrass, folk and old time gospel.
They have been together since 1998 and have performed a wide variety of venues. The members are Nancy Womble on bass and lead vocals, Gary Furr on guitar and vocals, Greg Womble on banjo and vocals and Don Wendorf on banjo, mandolin and hammer dulcimer. They have just added an exciting new member of the band, fiddle player Melanie Richardson Rogers. They describe themselves as “acoustic band that mixes modern, traditional and gospel bluegrass styles”. You will hear a little of everything from Bill Monroe to James Taylor and even something they call “mariachigrass” and original compositions by Gary. Tight vocals, solid arrangements, good picking and high energy is coming your way.
