We're the Tussey Mountain Moonshiners. Hailing from from Central Pennsylvania, our music honors the bluegrass traditions of the region, served up in our own special sauce. Our musical style ranges from a blend of traditional to Americana, accompanied with a dash of old time, and spiced with a captivating mix of unique, original songs. Our on stage chemistry, amplified by the fun and strong connection we share with our audience makes a Moonshiners show an experience not to be missed!

We are the winners of the 2010 DelFest Bluegrass Band Competition, and Bluegrass Unlimited had this to say about our debut album, I’m Going Home: “… the Tussey Mountain Moonshiners exude rich talent, enthusiasm, energy, and a wide knowledge of string music… Every single cut proves enjoyable ... With admirably equal skill, authenticity, and enthusiasm, the Tussey Mountain Moonshiners ... move from bluegrass to old-time to folk/Americana.” And about or most recent release, Shine: "Everybody sings and contributes original material. You can’t say these guys don’t have a sense of humor in the way they approach their music. It definitely sounds like a fun time is being had by all...Check out this band if you enjoy rambunctious, moonshine-themed humor and a foray into some new original bluegrass songs. If you go see them live, they may even come up with a nickname for you, too!" Come see us and join the fun!
