High Rock Mountain plays mainly traditional bluegrass, with an emphasis on broken-hearted love songs and murder ballads featuring two- and three-part harmonies, with some originals and ripping instrumentals thrown in. The band met at the beginning of the 2012 Fall semester at Berklee College of Music through the Bluegrass ensemble arrangement - not that long ago - but they feel like they've been playing together for years. High Rock Mountain is delighted to take the musical heritage with which they have been blessed and bring it to those both familiar and new to Bluegrass, spreading awareness of this great music and expanding the Bluegrass community. continued

The series will continue in 2014 watch the Lord Geoffrey website or Facebook page for news.
