Mountain Rain
A new band from a cluster of small communities in the western Piedmont of North Carolina, Mountain Rain plays traditional bluegrass and bluegrass gospel as well as some originals.

They're all part of a new generation of pickers that are keeping the traditions of bluegrass alive. Tommy Chandler from Mocksville plays guitar; Ryan Dunn from Smith Grove is on bass; Justin Bowles from Mooresville is on banjo; and Brad Wood from State Road plays mandolin. They all share vocals and harmonies, and Ryan sings the tenor lead. They're also at work on their debut CD.

Justin, a 5th generation banjo picker, played RAF several years back with Harvest Wind, with his mother, Revonda Roberts Bowles.
