Mountain Faith

Friday, August 5

7:30 p.m., Stuart Auditorium

Even late in the afternoon when the shadow of Cowee Mountain stretches across the family tire shop, passersby can catch the bright notes of Appalachian, Americana, Roots music drifting from the back room of the service station where Mountain Faith – the SPBGMA Bluegrass Music Awards nominated band from Sylva, North Carolina – rehearses between customers. Everybody’s there: Sam McMahan on bass, Summer McMahan playing the fiddle and singing lead and harmony. Brayden McMahan is on the banjo and singing harmony, Jimmy Meyer is on rhythm guitar and singing harmony. Cory Piatt picking the mandolin and David Meyer triples on guitar, fiddle and piano plus vocals, while Chris Wright plays out a beat on the drums.

Since 2000, Mountain Faith has played their unique brand of music to audiences at colleges, civic centers, auditoriums, arenas, fair grounds, festivals, parks, and churches across the United States and Canada. Their fresh Appalachian take on gospel, bluegrass, folk, R&B, and pop music has earned them televised appearances on Daystar and the 2015 season of America’s Got Talent. Just before Thanksgiving 2015, the band traveled to the Persian Gulf and performed six concerts for our men and women serving in the military. Brayden commented ~ “Spending time with the troops and sharing our music with them was a life changing experience. We look forward to returning soon.”

Above all else, Mountain Faith is thankful for the opportunities God has provided them through music.
