Mountain Song

This is the beginning of a Traditional American Music journey that started during lockdown in the unlikely location of Shrewsbury!
Mountain Song are an acoustic-guitar duo (James Hickman and Will Greenway) that perform music from the golden era of Bluegrass & the Appalachian mountains
James Hickman has toured extensively in the UK, Europe and America with the famous fiddle player Dan Cassidy (brother of Eva Cassidy), Uiscedwr (Radio 2 Young Folk Act) and Chris Quinn (Shrewsbury’s well known gypsy jazz guitarist). James took to teaching during COVID and began the concept of Mountain Song with his star pupil Will Greenway. Will Greenway at the age of 20 has a musical maturity, a rich baritone voice and incredible guitar skills that must be seen to be believed.
Charlie Dore says of Mountain Song:
Mountain Song are the real thing. It’s a rare treat to discover this high voltage, golden era Bluegrass delivered with such expertise, panache and authenticity. Will Greenway & James Hickman, both outstanding players and singers show an obvious affection and respect for this high-energy music. The one surprise is that both were born and bred this side of the Atlantic. It’s as if 'Oh Brother Where Art Thou' has finally given its younger brother permission to step up and run the show.”
