After capturing the true spirit of days gone by, in a mason jar. This 3 piece string-band is delivering its own brand of folk music down from the Canadian Rockies. Inspiring music lovers of all ages to get up and dance. Breaking the molds of tradition. Blending old-time clawhammer banjo, fine whiskey vocal harmonies, enkindling melodies, and tireless rhythm. Singing songs of the bible, the bottle, and everything in between.
THE MISERY MOUNTAIN BOYS
Somewhere between the worlds of old time jazz and country music lies a very special place, nestled in small-town Northern Alberta, next to the mighty Peace River. Known to locals as Misery Mountain, this iconic landmark has a reputation for mixing the waters when it comes to tradition, making it a perfect meeting grounds for music legends like Django and Hank, Pokey and Grisman.
With their roots in Peace River, AB, the Misery Mountain Boys have been based out of Edmonton since 2012, and have steadily built a reputation as one of the cities most exciting and unique live acts. After rambling through bluegrass circles, western swing standards, and getting lost in the world of gypsy jazz, the Misery Mountain Boys have landed upon their own unique brand of swing, taking their traditional instrumentation to more creative and sometimes unexpected places, while paying homage to the iconic greats of the 1930’s and 40’s. With their first European tour under their belts, the bands sound and live performance is more refined than ever, with fun and uptempo music to keep the feet shuffling all night long.
Their third studio release, ‘Moon Dog and the Familiar Spirits’ pays homage to an other-worldly adventure, set in Alberta’s Northern Boreal Forest, one summer solstice night.
We recognize we are situated on Treaty 6 Territory, traditional meeting land and home of many Indigenous Peoples including Cree, Saulteaux, Blackfoot, Métis and Nakota Sioux Peoples.
