Mount Moriah burst onto the triangle scene just a few years ago, and have been asserting themselves as one of the best Americana groups in the scene and beyond ever since. Lead by the soulful crooning of Heather McEntire, the band made a splash in 2013 with their release of their critically lauded record Miracle Temple. Praised for its blend of fundamental country elements with refreshing songwriting and energy, the Merge Records release was recognized by outlets such as Pitchfork and Paste as a standout of the year.
Mount Moriah is known for its emotionally driven and sentimental performances that feel like something from the past. This year at Hopscotch 2013, they hosted one of the most extravagant performances of the festival with a set made up of their discography in full, wowing Fletcher Opera Theater.
This February 14th, Mount Moriah takes the stage of Lincoln Theater on the second and final night of WKNC’s Double Barrel Benefit 11. Bring a loved one and be prepared to dance for what’s sure to be a landmark show in the event’s history.
