Red Mountain String Band plays good-time, old-time string band music. At festivals and clubs you'll hear them play high-energy dance tunes and old-timey blues, and sing songs from the earliest days of country music, when folks like the Carter Family and the Delmore Brothers were the stars. You're likely to hear a lot of impromptu humor as well. 

Red Mountain's expertise as a dance band has garnered them invitations to dance festivals across the country. At dances they dip into their large repertoire of powerful contra dance medleys and driving square dance tunes.  They learned many of their tunes from older fiddlers in Alabama and Tennessee, and they play in a style that reflects the region in which they live.

Folks often describe Red Mountain  as a wall of sound. Components of this sound are fiddle by Jim Cauthen, guitar by Joyce Cauthen, mandolin by Phil Foster, harmonica and banjo uke by Jamie Finley, autoharp by Bill Martin and bass by Nancy Jackson.
