Together as a band since 2000, Mountain Faith has toured the U.S. and Canada numerous times since, playing their brand of bluegrass to audiences in civic centers, auditoriums, arenas, fair grounds, parks, churches, etc. They've had numerous repeat performances at Dollywood Theme Park in Pigeon Forge, Tenn., according to the band's website.
The band describes its music as a “fresh Appalachian take” on gospel, bluegrass, folk, rhythm & blues and pop music. Mountain Faith has earned at least one Bluegrass Music Award nomination from the Society for the Preservation of Bluegrass Music in America in the past and recently was nominated by the International Bluegrass Music Association for its “Emerging Artist of the Year” award.
Some of Mountain Faith's performances on AGT can be viewed at the show's website.
