Original acoustic music at the crossroads of Roots and Bluegrass 

from the wide open spaces of New Mexico

“Hard Road Trio was a big hit at High Mountain Hay Fever. Not only do they prove (if ever there were doubters) that you don't necessarily have to be from Boone County, NC, to make great music; but they are at once great folks to be around and great performers to have on your stage. They make any promoter look like a genius for booking them.” Ron Thomason, Chairman, High Mountain Hay Fever Board of Directors

We have a new video from filmmaker Orlando Martos. See and hear "Mama, Spin Me 'Round" right here: /video
