Mason Porter plays "Workingman's Dead"

Born out of regular late night jam sessions in West Chester, PA, Mason Porter formed in 2006 with Tim Celfo on upright bass, Joe D’Amico on mandolin, and Paul Wilkinson on guitar. Mason Porter released their debut EP Mason Porter (2008) resulting in immediate praise and momentum. Les McIntyre of Bluegrass Unlimited Magazine wrote of this inaugural recording “The music of Mason Porter could be best described as alternative bluegrass…in this debut recording, the eclectic trio show musical prowess that is difficult to overlook.” Following up with full lengths Thunder In The Valley (2009) and a collection of traditional folk and covers Story Of the Rifle (2011), the band became a fixture on the regional folk and bluegrass scenes. Through the process of writing, recording and constant gigging, the band developed its original sound blending folk, rock, blues, country and bluegrass influences into the unique personality that IS Mason Porter. Their latest release Home For The Harvest, due out in January 2014, presents an engaging and personal Mason Porter, placing the emphasis on lyrics, songwriting and their signature vocal harmonies.
