Missoula’s Dodgy Mountain Men sling a home-brewed Montana stompgrass that goes down smooth but packs a bite, mixing the rhythms of bluegrass, the soul of the blues and the energy of rock ‘n’ roll with a plethora of other musical traditions to create a unique electro-acoustic experience. The group’s genre-bending experimentation and passion for American roots traditions weave together to emphasize their lyrical storytelling, creating a musical frontier rife with empty mason jars, outlaws, gypsy women and cold Montana storms. Add three distinct voices, a pension for sonic exploration and live performances that build to a fever pitch,and you’ve got a concoction that will make moonshiners proud and compel dancers to wear out the soles of their shoes.
