The Jeff Austin Band On Mountain Stage
The Jeff Austin Band makes its first visit to Mountain Stage, recorded live at the Culture Center Theater in Charleston, W.Va. As a founding member of the beloved bluegrass group Yonder Mountain String Band, Jeff Austin is no stranger to roots-music fans. But Austin has embarked on the next step in his musical journey, releasing his first solo recording, The Simple Truth, on a national label. And, while his fleet fingers and passion for improvisation remain intact, listeners will also find hints of power-pop, country ballads, bluegrass and rock.
Austin is backed by Eric Torin on upright bass, along with guitarist Ross Martin and banjo great Danny Barnes.
