High Ground on the hunt

high_groundHigh Ground, a contemporary bluegrass band in Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley, is on the hunt for a new rhythm guitarists and vocalist. Larry Taylor, who is a founding member, is leaving the group after ten years.

The guys have released four albums during their time together, most recently Bristol Station, with special guests Sammy Shelor and Tim Stafford.

In addition to Larry, the band consists of Jimmy Almarode on mandolin, Brandon Burkeholder on banjo, Rick Altis on bass, and Ben Swarey on guitar.

Though their schedule sticks pretty close to home, High Ground does do a bit of traveling. They asked us to share that they are looking now for someone to take Larry’s spot, and that anyone interested in the gig should contact them by email.

Here’s a taste of their sound.
