The Hosmer Mountain Boys are a retro bluegrass band that is quickly rising in the New England Bluegrass scene. They were voted the “Fan Favorite” at the 2023 Podunk Bluegrass Festival and also performed in Lexington, KY on WoodSongs Old-Time Radio Hour this past year, to be released on RFD-TV soon.
Keegan Day and Simon Brogie met at Mando Camp North in Charlton, MA, in 2018 at age 16 and instantly discovered their mutual passion for Flatt & Scruggs.
Simon (banjo) has been described by some attendees at the Thomas Point Beach Bluegrass Festival in Brunswick, ME, as Connecticut's best-kept secret. You’ll hear that Keegan’s major guitar-picking influences include Riley Pucket, Don Reno, and the thumb-picking style of Lester Flatt.
Rounding out the band is Cathy Bumgarner Day on fiddle and Tom Bowman on bass, both staples in the New England Bluegrass Music scene for decades.
