Mist Covered Mountains
Alex Bell ~ drums, bodhrán
Max Cohen ~ guitar, vocals
Donna Hébert ~ fiddle, vocals
Molly Hebert-Wilson ~ vocals

Blurring lines between past and present, Mist Covered Mountains delivers traditional and original songs with layered voices. Ballads in English, Irish and French are supported with dynamic instrumentals from traditional and original sources. They break your heart, then they make you dance, usually in that order!

Mist Covered Mountains' dance-saturated fiddle rhythms take you from Acadie to the land of Faerie  and dare you to sit still! From Celtic melancholy and sly satire to fiddling frenzy, they satisfy their audience's need for variety while offering the finest of harmonies and lyrics. You'll leave humming and enchanted.

Molly Hebert-Wilson's nuanced vocals in English and Irish render a song's emotions in either language. An NYU theater and Irish studies grad, she grew up with traditional music around her. On stage from age 9, it was obvious that Molly would stay there but it was a welcome surprise that mother and daughter wound up together. Molly's recently added the upright and electric bass to her performances. A 2014 NERFA DJ pick, Molly's outstanding voice is part of every song.

Max Cohen's sparkling guitar supports Molly's nuance with his own and he adds deft, humorous lyrics and a rich baritone. Max also tours with singer Priscilla Herdman and with fiddler Donna Hébert and performs with Renaissance Faire duo The Misfits of Avalon.

Donna Hébert is a state Artists' Fellow in the Folk Arts whose fiddling was recognized by Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick. She teaches fiddle at Smith, Amherst and Mt. Holyoke Colleges and her Fiddling Demystified series was lauded by Strings Magazine: "required reading for all string teachers.' A singer, writer and composer as well as a fiddler, Donna has two original songs on Smithsonian recordings and a 1988 INDIE Award for Rude Girls: Rude Awakening on Flying Fish. One of the midwives of the contra dance renaissance, Donna's played for dances since 1972 and directs the house contra band at Philly Folk Fest.

Alex Bell joined the band in 2014 on drums and bodhrán. Long a rock drummer with Glens Falls NY band The Rose West, he was a kilted guide at Fort William and Henry, where he carried a bass drum in the corps. Also a member of The Waysties and Rare Spirits with Molly, Noam and Robare, Alex teaches percussion with the Great Groove Band posse at both festivals.
