Meeting on the Mountain® LIVE is a collaborative live broadcast experience featuring Grant Farm as the house band with Tyler Grant hosting. The rousing live one-hour broadcast includes performances as well as interviews with the musical guests and gives Grant Farm the opportunity to collaborate with some of their favorite musicians.
Along with resident guest Benny “Burle” Galloway, Meeting on the Mountain guests have included Bill Nershi (of String Cheese Incident), Todd Scheaffer (of Railroad Earth), Dave Bruzza (of Greensky Bluegrass), Andy Hall (of Infamous Stringdusters), Yarn, Dead Winter Carpenters, Bonnie and the Clydes and Ragged Union.
LIVE episodes are streamed live from The Downtown Artery in Fort Collins, CO, then rebroadcast following the event. Meeting on the Mountain LIVE is filmed and broadcast by Fort Collins-based Hyphytek.
The Meeting on the Mountain concept was inspired by a collaborative 4-song EP, entitled Meeting on the Mountain (Grant Central Records, Sept 2014), which features music by Grant Farm with Fruition. The song, “Meet me on the Mountain” (written by Fruition’s Jay Cobb Anderson and Tyler Grant) conjures a laid back campfire sing-a-long vibe which embodies the spirit of the new Meeting on the Mountain series and is also the theme song for it.
“It was really a fit of inspiration,” explains Grant (in an interview with 5280 magazine), discussing how a one-off partnership turned into the series Meeting on the Mountain LIVE. ‘That (EP) just captured a certain amount of magic, and I wanted to continue with the ‘Meeting on the Mountain’ theme. I wanted it to be a regular concept, where we could incorporate musical guests we admire and/or have some kind of connection to.’”
