SUMMER BROOKE AND THE MOUNTAIN FAITH BAND
Thursday, December 2 at 7:30 PM, the Playhouse will present Summer Brooke & the Mountain Faith Band – The Sounds of Christmas. Captivating audiences nationally for the past eighteen years, Summer Brooke & the Mountain Faith Band offer a musical experience that sets them apart from other musicians. With their unique blend of Country, Pop, Bluegrass and Americana, they became a household name on Season 10 of America’s Got Talent, gaining the attention of millions and earning their spot as semifinalists. Howie Mandell of AGT said, “This IS America’s music.” Since then, they have made their Grand Ole Opry debut, and won the International Bluegrass Music Association’s 2016 Emerging Artist of the Year.
Long-time followers of Summer Brooke & The Mountain Faith Band have witnessed their musical growth and the creation of a sound that is uniquely their own, all the while remaining true to their roots and their faith. This innovative ensemble hails from Sylva, North Carolina and features Summer McMahan on fiddle, her brother Brayden on banjo, their dad Sam on bass, with Nick Dauphinais on guitar, and Cory Piatt on mandolin. Their musicianship is on par with the most lauded of the latest generation of accomplished pickers like Noam Pikelney, Chris Thile, and Chris Eldridge – yet within their own style of tasteful, precise, and melodic maneuvers. And this compilation of classic Christmas songs sprinkled with a couple of originals, is new and fresh, and guaranteed to revive the kid in everyone during this magical time of year!
