Hunger Mountain Boys

Touring and recording since 2003, The Hunger Mountain Boys have released three full-length albums and one vinyl single on their own Old-Fi record label. Their songwriting has won them national recognition, and their music has taken them from coast to coast, Canada, and Europe. Their spirited performances of eclectic traditional American music as well as their own compositions have put them on stages with many roots-based artists from Taj Mahal to Doc Watson and Ralph Stanley to Kathy Mattea, among others. With a fourth album scheduled to be released late in 2007, The Hunger Mountain boys continue to tour the nation.

Recent press quotes about The Hunger Mountain Boys:
“Very highly recommended." -Bluegrass Unlimited Magazine
“Highly recommended.” -Country Standard Time “.
..sweet pieces of twangy, acoustic Americana that has a '30's and '40's feel" -Boston Globe
“These boys from The Berkshires are a little too melodic to be old-time and a little too rough hewn to be bluegrass.... The [new] album careens from blisteringly fast to cheerfully rambling….Their compositions are indistinguishable in quality and tone from the older tunes covered.” -Dirty Linen Magazine
“These are some nimble-fingered, barn-burnin’ country boys… or they’re time-travelers, one or the other.”
