The all-female group with the most masculine of names, Mountain Man, have been on a roll as of late. After last years Made The Harbor made quite an impression on critics, the group parlayed that success into a slew of opening spots for The Decemberists. Now, theyre set to take their sweetly haunting Appalachian-folk tunes on the road with a solo tour this July.
The trio of Vermont-originating ladies open up their tour with a spot on the Winnipeg Folk Festival lineup. Theyll head to Minneapolis, MN for a free show at Cedar Cultural Center before hitting Milwaukee, WI, Chicago, IL, Sante Fe, NM, and Denver, CO.
After playing Telluride, CO, theyll move back east through St. Louis, MO and Indianapolis, IN and on to Pittsburgh and Philadelphia, PA, Arlington, VA, two New York shows, and one in Massachusetts. Their last date in the summer months will be at the Newport Folk Festival, and theyll play England’s End of the Road Festival in September.
Three of these shows will be opening slots for Portland indie-folk band Blind Pilot. See which ones by checking out Mountain Mans complete tour schedule down yonder.
