Dance the night away at the 5th annual Mountain Jamboree festival. Every year so far has been packed full of surprises, with plenty of live music, food vendors, and drinks in the beer garden!
Larry Keel is described by some reviewers as the most powerful, innovative and all-out exhilarating acoustic flatpicking guitarist performing today. Keel has absorbed the best lessons from his Bluegrass family upbringing, both sides deeply steeped in the rich mountain music culture and heritage of Southwest Virginia. From there, he has always integrated that solid musical grounding and natural-born talent with his own incomparable approach to flatpicking the guitar and composing original music. He's also got a knack for choosing interesting and appealing material from all realms of music with guts, whether it's a tune written by a fellow song-writer/musician friend, or a tasty cover from any number of genres all over the map. The combination is pretty irresistible, and has earned Keel the highest respect and billing among the top acoustic musicians alive, and some now gone. And his fierce, high-spirited energy also appeals to young rockers, jammers and alt country pickers and fans who are equally drawn to Keel's deep rumbling voice, his earthy and imaginative song-writing, and his down-home-gritty-good-time charm. Keel regularly collaborates with JamBand and Rock giants Yonder Mountain String Band, Keller Williams, Jorma Kaukonen, David Nelson, Little Feat, Rebirth Brass Band, Dirty Dozen Brass, Railroad Earth, members of String Cheese Incident and Leftover Salmon, amongst others.
For Keel the musical mission is always clear: to let technical skill, honest emotion and fearlessness connect the playing and singing to audiences, to entertain and to thoroughly enjoy the experience of creating and sharing in music.

Hot Day at the Zoo (HDATZ) the groove-friendly quartet mix folk, blues, ragtime and jazz with progressive bluegrass and Americana-infused rock and roll. HDATZ's powerful acoustic music truly resonates in their energizing live show. Marked by a growing list of festival and direct support performances alongside artists including Levon Helm, moe, Railroad Earth, Grace Potter, and Trampled By Turtles, Hot Day at the Zoo proves that their grassroots approach has built a dedicated fan base. Their rock 'n' roll with bluegrass instrumentation resonates with fans of Yonder Mountain String Band, the Avett Brothers, Mumford & Sons and Grateful Dead.
Starting in Feb. of 2011 the Blind Owl Band officially formed, and started shows around their home in Saranac Lake, NY in the heart of the Adirondack Mountains. The band views their traditional arrangement as just the start of the musical concept. "Although we look like a bluegrass band we are not. We are The Blind Owl Band, a musical representation of what sounds float around in our heads. We use the instruments of our ancestors, but play music of our time. In a time of music and sound perfection and an expansion of the realm through digital processors, we hope to inspire use of wood and metal. To take a basic approach and expanded it to a sound all its own."
