Mason Porter: Spring Tour, New Album

West Chester, Pennsylvania (March 8, 2010) – Roots group Mason Porter hits the road March 26 through April 10 for a spring tour in support of their new album, Thunder in the Valley. After a snowy Pennsylvania winter that forced the band to cancel their CD Release Party—twice—the band is anxious to finally bring their show on the road. The tour heads south (and hopefully to warmer weather), winding through the Appalachian states of Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, Kentucky, Tennessee, and West Virginia, before eventually wrapping up with a homecoming show at the World Café Live in Philadelphia on April 10.

Thunder In The Valley was released December 10 via Philadelphia upstart Uncle Nicky Records. Produced by Tom Hamilton (American Babies, Brothers Past) and mixed by producer Bill Moriarty (Dr. Dog, Hoots and Hellmouth), the album showcases the songwriting of band members Joe D’Amico, Tim Celfo and Paul Wilkinson. Preserving the core instrumentation of acoustic guitar, mandolin and upright bass—as well as Mason Porter’s signature three-part harmonies—Thunder in the Valley displays the band’s ability to expand beyond its original folk and bluegrass roots with more intricate songwriting and arrangements.
