Though often overshadowed by Southwest Virginia and its famed Crooked Road, the Shenandoah Valley and Virginia’s northwestern counties have always been fertile ground for traditional music, and they continue to be home to many of its finest practitioners. Named for a mountain near where all of its members grew up, Furnace Mountain consists of some of the most innovative and gifted young musicians in Virginia. With Aimee Curl on bass and vocals, Danny Knicely on mandolin and fiddle, Dave Van Deventer on fiddle, and Morgan Morrison on guitar, bouzouki, and vocals, the band creates music that is at times lively and raucous, with spirited fiddle melodies weaving in and around the powerful rhythms of the bass and bouzouki, and other times poignant and poetic, with sublime vocal harmonies beautifully interpreting some of the oldest songs ever written.
Jordan Tice is an accomplished guitarist and prolific composer of instrumental acoustic music and songs. He is well-versed in bluegrass flat-picking, blues and ragtime finger-picking, classical composition, and jazz-inspired improvisation, and his original music reflects these diverse interests in a cohesive and musical way. He has released three records of original music to rave reviews and performed or recorded with The Dave Rawlings Machine, Tony Trischka, Mark Schatz and friends, Steve Martin, and the Duhks.
