Tussey Mountain Moonshiners


Tussey Mountain Moonshiners is a band that always impresses an audience with their talent, the arrangements, and the friendly connection to fans. They can bring an event to a new level of pleasure with their energy and variety of their selections. They are first on my list to hire when I am presenting a program to college students, a festival, or a concert because of their versatility and ability to entertain any type of audience.

About the Band
Winners of the 2010 DelFest Bluegrass Band Competition, the Tussey Mountain Moonshiners hail from State College, PA, honoring the bluegrass traditions of the region. On stage they bring a captivating mix of traditional and unique, original songs, and a friendly connection with the audience. Bluegrass Unlimited said this about their debut album, I’m Going Home: “… the Tussey Mountain Moonshiners exude rich talent, enthusiasm, energy, and a wide knowledge of string music… Every single cut proves enjoyable ... With admirably equal skill, authenticity, and enthusiasm, the Tussey Mountain Moonshiners ... move from bluegrass to old-time to folk/Americana.”

Media Reviews
Bluegrass Unlimited Magazine, February 2012
"From smack dab in the middle of Pennsylvania . . . the Tussey Mountain Moonshiners exude rich talent, enthusiasm, energy, and a wide knowledge of string music . . ."
