The Compost Mountain Boys are a tradition of bluegrass music in Humboldt County, CA - now celebrating over 25 years! From The Redwoods on California's Far North Coast, comes a professional band that has kept the tradition of Bluegrass alive, as well as becoming a tradition in themselves. Performing often in many of the same local venues in which they started over 20 years ago, the group has brought progressive song choices to a point of mellowness and balance. With a tight, driving sound they play bluegrass standards and perform their own material, songs and instrumentals. From local Brew pubs to major Festivals, the Compost Mountain experience is an excellent lively addition to your venue or event. Traditional and progressive sounding bluegrass... with a 1960s feel. - Bluegrass today
