Town Mountain & Tyler Childers Perform ‘Down Low’ At Red Rocks
Town Mountain recently supported Tyler Childers at a concert held at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, Colorado. Childers joined Town Mountain at the end of their opening set for a performance of “Down Low.” Official video footage of the collaboration can be viewed exclusively below.
Childers, Town Mountain and fellow supporting act Robert Earl Keen came together at the majestic outdoor venue on September 30. Asheville, North Carolina-based Town Mountain, which features guitarist and vocalist Robert Greer, mandolinist Phil Barker, fiddler Bobby Britt, bassist Zach Smith and banjoist Jesse Langlais, recorded “Down Low” for the bluegrass outfit’s 2018 studio album, New Freedom Blues. Childers appeared on the recording of the song, which he co-wrote with Langlais.
Langlais shed light on the collaboration, telling JamBase:
Tyler has been a good friend for many years now. We had always talked about co-writing but never could make it happen. So one weekend years ago when he came down to Asheville for a couple of days, we had a good hang and wrapped up the song over some beers. The chorus to “Down Low” had been stuck in my head for a while and I had some loose ideas for where the song should go. Tyler helped sure up those ideas and brought some of my favorite lines to the song.
It’s always a pleasure to do shows with Tyler and The Food Stamps. We love the guys and we love the music, brothers in arms! And it’s always a highlight when Tyler comes up with us and performs “Down Low.” Especially at a venue like Red Rocks where you can just feel the energy and magic in the air.
Town Mountain also confirmed new 2020 tour dates. The band announced shows taking place next January, February, March, May and July (find the full tour schedule below).
