Last year Asheville, NC based contemporary bluegrass outfit Town Mountain released New Freedom Blues, a swirling, beautiful, viscerally powerful album that combines elements of Americana, honky-tonk, and country music.

WOUB spoke to Zach Smith (upright bass) about the making of New Freedom Blues, his path from ceramic student to musician, and the band’s upcoming performance at the 2019 Nelsonville Music Festival.

The Nelsonville Music Festival takes place on Robbins Crossing in Nelsonville June 6-9. Tickets are available now at
