Despite its Montana namesake, Gallatin Canyon is a Charlottesville, Virginia-based bluegrass band. True to its Virginia roots, the band specializes in traditional bluegrass music with a refreshing, modern sensibility. Nodding to the bluegrass past with a traditional spin, the band is also known for rebooting many favorites from the country and classic rock genres. So if traditional bluegrass isn’t your cup of bourbon, don’t worry — you’re likely to hear a few familiar, creatively-arranged classic rock and country covers too. From Bill Monroe and Flatt & Scruggs, to the Beatles and the Avett Brothers, at any given show, you’ll hear an eclectic mix, crossing multiple musical genres.
The band has played throughout the region on many stages, including an opening act at the Charlottesville Pavilion for the President of the United States in August of 2012.
