Mountain Man: What a difference a few months make

Mountain Man, a trad-ish female trio from Bennington, Vt., was really interesting @MercuryLoungeNY in the spring, but seemd not yet ready for prime time. On Saturday afternoon at Solid Sound Festival, Mountain Man was poised, strong and very much ready for the limelight. (Though they still have only one guitar among them, and they had to borrow it from somebody else!)

What a difference time can make. Nice going!

Vetiver rocks out at Solid Sound Festival

Vetiver played a short but solid set this afternoon, under beautiful blue skies at the Solid Sound Festival at MASS MoCA in the Berkshires city of North Adams, Mass.
