A great success when they played here two years ago, the music of Furnace Mountain
is at times lively and raucous, with spirited fiddle melodies weaving in and around
the powerful rhythms of the bass and bouzouki. It is at other times poignant and
poetic, with sublime vocal harmonies beautifully interpreting some of the oldest
songs ever written.
Members of the band have been playing together since 1995, and grew up in the same
area of Virginia on or near the mountain bearing the same name.
