The Oly Mountain Boys play bluegrass with high-energy drive and a Pacific Northwest bent, mixing traditional tunes with revolutionary original bluegrass compositions. By combining picking prowess with tight three-part vocal harmonies, the band aims to showcase the power and appeal of a truly American musical form.

Looking back on 2015, we're thankful for every single time we got to see your smiling faces at Rhythm & Rye, or a grange hall, or one of the many festivals and benefits where we got to share music with you. And we're especially thankful for our Northwest stringband community and the success of the very first Steamboat Stringband Jamboree! We're going to keep working this year to make it a destination for Americana music lovers in the region.
We're kicking off more big plans for 2016 right away THIS THURSDAY! We think Olympia has been hungry for a regular Americana music night for a long time, and we're teaming up with KAOS Community Radio and Cascadia Homebrew to make it happen! First Thursday = BREWGRASS at Cascadia Homebrew! Our first lineup is pretty amazing - Oly favorite Kendl Winter will play a set, and so will our Seattle buds The Warren G. Hardings!
In other news, tickets are now available for our trio show at the Gig Harbor Boat Shop. Plus we're making our Laurelthirst debut in Portland with The Aeroplane Band, which features an all star lineup playing some good ol John Hartford! And The Student Loan returns to Rhythm & Rye!
Happy new year y'all!!
