The Hollow Mountain String Band

The Hollow Mountain String Band take old-time American music, bluegrass, some good-ole’ country classics and a touch of country blues and play them with drive and energy. Foot stompin’ Americana music… you may struggle to stay in your seat.

The members of Argyll Acoustic have long had a love of American traditional music and from the start Pigtown Fling incorporated American music into their set. In 2010 we decided to put together a band inspired by this music, particularly that of the early 20th century string bands, and The Hollow Mountain String Band was born.

The line up of The Hollow Mountain String Band includes John McMahon on guitar and vocals, Rab woods on vocals, mandolin, fiddle, guitar, harmonica, banjo and dobro, Ann Barlow on fiddle and vocals and Nigel Frydman on bass.
