Matrimony make their first appearance on Mountain Stage, recorded live at the Culture Center Theater in Charleston, W.Va.

A true family band, Matrimony is fronted by the husband and wife duo of Jimmy Brown and Ashlee Hardee Brown, along with Ashlee's brothers Jordan Hardee and CJ Hardee. Jimmy Brown was born in Northern Ireland and came to Charlotte, N.C. — where he met his wife and musical partner — via China. Melding rock, country, gospel and longstanding folk traditions from Ireland and North America, the group released its EP The Storm & The Eye in 2010. The group will release Montibello Memories May 6 and tour the U.S. for the remainder of the month.
