The Black Mountain Bluegrass Boys

The Black Mountain Bluegrass Boys

The Black Mountain Bluegrass Boys are among West Virginia’s longest-running bluegrass bands. The group first organized in 1968, taking their name from Black Mountain in their native Pocahontas County. As with many bluegrass bands, the Black Mountain Bluegrass Boys have had changes in personnel over the years. Richard Hefner remains as the lone original member. Hefner’s traditional bluegrass banjo playing and tenor vocals have contributed both continuity and much of the “high lonesome” sound for which the band has become so well-known. He is joined by Chris Nickell (lead and rhythm guitar work as well as lead vocals), Rick Carpenter (mandolin and lead and baritone vocals), and Mike Smith (bass).
