The Mountain Firework Company - Live @ Hackforth
Saturday 1st November brings The Mountain Firework Company, they are an acoustic 5 piece based in Brighton, England. They came together over heartache and wine to create what has been described as “gorgeous folk/alt country pop, with equal parts darkness and cheeky humour ” and “alternative bluegrass with a dark treacle folk centre”. Simultaneously mournful and upbeat, The Mountain Firework Company’s driving and melodic sound comes from an all acoustic string band line up of guitars, fiddle, banjo, mandolin, double bass and drums. Taking the traditional bluegrass line-up in new directions, they incorporate country, folk, bluegrass and Americana within their sound. As It’s bonfire night Saturday, we are delaying the stage start time until 8.30pm so guests can take in both fantastic events and we will have Pie and peas for supper at a small charge! It’s going to be a very special night :-)
