"Bluegrass has brought more people together and made more friends than any music in the world." -Bill Monroe
The Misty Mountain String Band could only come out of Kentucky. We are four musicians who met at seminary, put together a pick up group for an old-time camp revival, and now we're touring and releasing our third album of original acoustic music.
Like we always say, where else could that happen but the Bluegrass State?
"What gets me is those harmonies, they are really something else. Not quite traditional, not quite modern, somewhere in between and extremely effective. Just pleasant. It’s bluegrass, its good bluegrass." -redlineroots.com

Red Horizon is a full length, 11 song, album featuring our original music. From bluegrass, to roots, folk, and Americana, we bring all of our influences to the table--along with a few surprises. Red Horizon is filled with songs about living and dying, hope and regret, love and loss.
Our dream team worked with us again:
For over twenty years, our producer, Steven Thomas has been a professional musician touring and working with the biggest artists in Bluegrass and Country music. He played on the Grand Ole Opry with Jim & Jesse and The Virginia Boys. He has recorded and played with The Lost and Found, The Whites, The Osborne Brothers, Aaron Tippin, Barbara Mandrell, Brooks and Dunn, LeeAnn Womack, Kenny Chesney, John Michael Montgomery, Ronnie Bowman, and Lorrie Morgan. When Steve is not touring, you can find him in the studio recording and producing music by The Crowe Brothers, Larry Cordle, Jesse McReynolds and many other talented artists.

Your Part in this:
The album is complete, the artwork is complete. All we need, just like the last two times is for you to help us recoup and get this printed. If this album is going to happen we need $10,000 in pledges. Your support continues the long tradition of patrons supporting independent musicians who can only make their way because of people like you. If the project succeeds in reaching its funding goal, all backers' credit cards are charged when time expires and rewards are sent out. If the project falls short, no one is charged and our project can't succeed. Funding on Kickstarter is all-or-nothing.
Risks and challenges
We learned a lot from our two successful KICKSTARTER campaigns for Went to the Well and Brownsboro. We were too ambitious with some reward tiers in the past but this time around we only offer rewards that we are confident can be fulfilled quickly.
We have done this before, so you can pledge boldly and confidently, and let's make this album happen!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
