About the band

The Flat Mountain Girls are a high-energy old-time string band based in Portland, Oregon.

The Flats are known for tight, raw three-part harmonies, powerful fiddling, and performances that explode with irrepressible glee and bawdy humor.

Their repertoire includes arrangements of Carter Family classics, traditional songs from the Southern mountains, cowboy yodels, romping fiddle tunes, and the occasional original, combining tremendous enthusiasm with great respect for the old-time tradition.

With Lisa Marsicek playing fiddle, Rachel Gold on banjo, Nann Alleman on guitar and Arthur Parker on bass, the Flat Mountain Girls bring foot-stomping fun to every performance.
