Crow Mountain are an Australian old-time country and folk group, performing original, traditionally flavoured tunes of unnerving honesty and effortless beauty.
Drawing on their Blue Mountains roots, Megan Legg (mandolin) and Ben Thomas (banjo and guitar), performing alongside John Lee (fiddle) and Paul Abrahams (double bass), blend old-time, bluegrass instrumentation with honey-dipped harmonies, painting aural portraits of human frailty and grit, sorrow and strength, love and redemption.
Their original songs are rich in the sound and story-telling of traditional country music – of growing up in isolation; jumping freight trains to get where you need to be; of getting out of town and returning beaten, with the past at your heels.
In 2019 Crow Mountain performed at the inaugural Sydney Folk Festival, and at the Katoomba Old-Timey Folk Festival, Dorrigo Folk & Bluegrass Festival and Mountaingrass Bluegrass & Old-Time Festival, as well as venues around the Blue Mountains and regional New South Wales. They have released two EP’s, ‘Shallow Water’ in 2018, and ‘The Higher We Go’ in 2020, and are in the process of writing their first full-length album.
