The Highland Travels presented by Mountains of Music at the Harvester Performance Center

The Highland Travelers have just started a promising partnership – promising because they are the fusion of former members of two of the most respected bands in bluegrass – The Boxcars and Rambler’s Choice (Junior Sisk’s bandmates). This new ensemble of bluegrass veterans includes Adam Steffey (mandolin), Keith Garrett (guitar), Jason Davis (banjo), Kameron Keller (bass), and Gary Hultman (dobro). Their stated mission should delight bluegrass fans – “stay true to our traditional grass roots while creating new, original songs, as well as putting our stamp on our classic favorites.”
Adam Steffey is surely one of the most recorded mandolinists in bluegrass over the last 20 years. Keith Garrett grew up in the community of Citico in East Tennessee. His earliest and possibly most important musical influence was his dad, William Garrett, who taught Keith to play the guitar at the age of thirteen. Bluegrass music has been part of Jason Davis’s life since he was very young. Kameron Keller is a native of Greeneville, Tennessee who has spent a number of years playing bluegrass music both regionally and nationally. Gary Hultman grew up hunting, farming, and fishing on the Canadian border in the small town of Birchdale, Minnesota.
