Biography

Formed in 1992 as the Furnace Mountain Boys, this Virginia band plays old-style Appalachian folk and bluegrass music with new-style roots sensibilities. Their Shack Album, released on Frogville as Furnace Mountain with Aimee Curl, is a mix of original and traditional music with some Dylan and Yeats thrown in for fun.

Furnace Mountain consists of Dave Van Deventer on Fiddle and Vocals, Morgan Morrison on Bouzouki and Vocals, Aimee Curl on Bass and Vocals, Danny Knicely on Mandolin, and includes transient members Zach Lester on Bodhran, and John Flower on Washtub. The band has graced stages near and far, from the Yangtzee River in China to the banks of the Shenandoah River, where they host the famous Watermelon Park Fest each year. The music of Furnace Mountain is at times lively and raucous, with spirited fiddle melodies weaving in and around the powerful rhythms of the bass and bouzouki. It is at other times poignant and poetic, with sublime vocal harmonies beautifully interpreting some of the oldest songs ever written.

Furnace Mountain also performs a variety of original compositions, such as Scrampwang, Weezer’s Dream, and the ever popular Spuds.
