About The Oly Mountain Boys

Content

The Oly Mountain Boys began in 2008, playing the traditional music of Bill Monroe and the Stanley Brothers with high-energy flair. This music is still the backbone of the band's repertoire. Over the last year, however, they have incorporated more than an album's worth of original bluegrass material, some of a traditional bent and others drawing liberally from folk-rock and Americana. Either way, the band combines bluegrass picking prowess and tight, three-part vocal harmonies, bringing a youthful vitality to one of America's original musical forms. The band's mission is to reinvigorate the bluegrass genre by bringing the original bluegrass sound of the 1950's to a new generation of fans. The Oly Mountain Boys have performed everywhere from Pumpkin Fests and Farmers Markets to the smoke-filled, country-fried Grand Oly Opry, the Woodstock-styled Olympia Barter Faire, and many crowded, late-night bars. The band believes that the appeal of Bill Monroe and his music knows no bounds.
