Take The Mountain Down • Original Cast Album CD

Book, Music and Lyrics by Marvin Payne & Steven Kapp Perry

Concept by R. Don Oscarson

a finger pickin’ parable of the prodigal son

“Mountain” is the musical telling of the parable of the prodigal son in the bluegrass music style. What happens when a wayward young woman needs to hear the sweet story of the Prodigal Son, and the only folks who love her enough to tell it are the players in a bluegrass band she once deserted? On an autumn afternoon in Appalachia, the Potluck Social String Band takes a break from their concert in the park and weaves the timeless tale of redemption and forgiveness around their former bandmate with the strings of guitars, banjos, fiddles, bass, and mandolin. However, the story can be told by actors with a separate band, or actors who can play instruments, or a groups of actors and a guy with a guitar. Anything is possible in this flexible musical that will Take The Mountain Down and, at the same time, bring the house down!
