Mountain Bitters @ Ambrose West 8-18-2018
Violinist Megan Drollinger, violist Gretchen Caverly, and cellist Emmalee Hunnicutt play and sing three-part harmony in various Folk traditions.
Mountain Bitters is an acoustic folk trio based out of Asheville, NC. The band consists of Emmalee Hunnicutt on Cello, guitar & vocals, Gretchen Caverly on 5-string viola, fiddle & vocals, and Megan Drollinger on fiddle, mandolin & vocals. Performing an assortment of styles including Celtic, Cajun and Appalachian Folk, their instrumental arrangements, informed by their early Classical training, are original and compelling. Often setting down their instruments to sing a capella, their intuitive harmonies could be descibed as intoxicating and more than a little haunting. But, as soon as you’ve wiped your tear-dimmed eye, they’ll have you up and dancing again!
