Horse Mountain touring the Heartland

Thanks to Horse Mountain from Germany for this photo of them with Appalachian Studies scholar Prof. Richard Blaustein (right) at his home in Johnson City, Tennessee. Richard recently retired from his tenure at East Tennessee State University (ETSU) where he was (and still is) one of the driving forces behind ETSU's Bluegrass, Old-Time & Country Music programme.

Horse Mountain are keeping busy: their schedule shows them taking part in a 'Harmony by Ear' workshop with Sue Thompson at Bülach, Switzerland, on 25 Mar. 2012, after which they will be touring in Tennessee and Virginia before returning to Germany to open for Alecia Nugent at Tübingen on 7 May. Full details are here.
