Mountain Heart makes super-powered bluegrass that can tear the house down! Take six of the finest, most innovative musicians in bluegrass, influenced by musical sounds from Lynyrd Skynyrd, Stevie Ray Vaughn, James Taylor, and the Dave Matthews Band to George Jones, Bill Monroe, Flatt & Scruggs, Alison Krauss & Union Station, Ricky Skaggs, and the David Grisman Quintet — and you’ve got the dynamic bluegrass music of Mountain Heart. This band can go from high-speed harmonic turns to straight-ahead ballads with, well, mountain heart. They’ve appeared more than 70 times at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, but this band also has a strong connection with southeastern Michigan audiences, and at The Ark they always deliver top-notch shows. Stop by and pick up a copy of the great Mountain Heart album “Road That Never Ends,” recorded live at The Ark!
