Fresh from the Video Archive, part I: Sam Bush – Live, Backstage & Unplugged

If there ever was a festival that’s sound is summed up in its name, it is Music on the Mountaintop. Held near the highest point in the Blue Ridge mountain range, Grandfather Mountain, organically grown mountain music reigns supreme at the event that was born from a college environmental project.

A couple of months ago, we were pleased to present a few acoustic performances — featuring Railroad Earth, Acoustic Syndicate and The New Familiars — that were recorded on the mountain.

Thanks to a super busy summer, we would like to now present you with the first piece from our latest series, Fresh from the Archive. And since it is the first in a series, we thought we would go big with the King of Newgrass, four-time Grammy winner, current CMA Musician of the Year nominee and the gentleman who was awarded with the Living Legend Award on that August weekend on the mountain– Sam Bush and crew performing “Ridin’ That Bluegrass Train” live, backstage and unplugged at Music on the Mountaintop exclusively for Honest Tune.
