The Grass Mountain Hobos
The Grass Mountain HobosThe Hobos are of another time. A time when pleasure usurped profession; when live music provided the soundtrack for excess; this period they bring to life on stages across Canada. With a stage show that harkens back to the days of the travelling salesman, The Hobos are the cure-all elixir for those requiring entertainment. Their brand of music is authentic and complex, mixing equal parts of the carnival, farm, tavern and circus. Two acoustic guitars, a banjo, mandolin, doghouse bass and a fiddle create the unique backdrop over
which the 6 vocalists paint malevolent yet harmonious works of art.
Their music drives and swings while they stomp - the crowd smiles and joins in.

Their first self-titled album won 3 2009 PEI Music Awards and The 2009 East Coast Music Association's Bluegrass Album of the Year. There second album ZOOT! will be released July 1 2009

A swing, bluegrass, blues, and folk infusion ? The Grass Mountain Hobos give a carousing performance that is bound to entertain audiences Canada wide. With music full of humour and musicality, the band has received a standing ovation from every festival crowd that they have played to. Touring constantly, The Hobos bring with them music of the wandering dreamer and the train hopping adventurer in a way that engages audiences both young and old.
