Performer's Studio, Friday Night, October 29, 2004

Mountain Momma Band and Greg Freyman

Larry Brown welcomes everyone to the first formal concert at Performers Studio.

Special guest Greg Freyman, classical guitarist and former member of Mountain Mommas opens the evening performance.

The Mountain Momma Band takes the stage with Francis Chilcoat playing guitar and harmonica, KC Chilcoat on bass, and Larry Brown on conga drums. Francis and KC provided the vocals.

 

The Mountain Momma Band is one of the living landmarks in Hampshire County. Francis Chilcoat and his wife KC, founded the band in 1973. Over the years the number of members in the band have expanded to as many as nine and as few as two. A good number of well established musicians have played in this band at one time or another.

In the early 1980's the band was known as "The Limit" and in the 1990's shifted closer to its current form. Francis is always open to fresh new ideas and will incorporate added musicians for specific musical styles. Currently the band plays either as a foursome with Michael Hasty on drums, as a threesome with Larry Brown on congas or as a twosome with just Francis on guitar and KC on bass. Each configuration has its own style. With Michael on drums, the emphasis turns toward driving rock and roll. With just Francis and KC the focus is more singer/songwriter style or laid back blues and acoustic rock. Then, in the middle is the trio with Larry Brown on conga drums, and here the band tends to explore unique and subtle rhythms.
