Jesse Gregory to Mountain Faith

Jesse GregoryIt’s an embarrassment of riches. You might even say it’s not fair.

Mountain Faith, the North Carolina bluegrass/Gospel group, whose second album with Pisgah Ridge, Battlefield, was released earlier this year, already boasts of one of the most compelling young  vocalists in bluegrass in the person of Summer McMahan. Now they have brought another, Jesse Gregory, into the band playing guitar.

Gregory’s debut project, Faultline, hit last year showing this young lady to be a powerful and evocative singer who can belt ’em out with the best. She is poised to graduate this Fall from the Bluegrass, Old Time & Country Music program at East Tennessee State University.

Current plans have the band starting work on a new album this Fall.

This should be something to see… and hear!
