Banjo player in the rocky mountains

Crazy Mountain Billies


Crazy Mountain Billies is the alias used by multi-instrumentalist musician and vocalist Andy "Banjo" Bormes. His unique playing style on banjo, coupled with harmonica and bluegrass instrumentation combine to form a full string band sound. Formed in 2009 in the Rocky Mountains, the C.M.B. Style can be described as a psychedelic form of mountain bluegrass music. 

Currently the artist is on the road touring in support of the latest studio album "Journey Into the Backwoods" which is available on all major online retailers.

All of the music is written in the backwoods, inspired by the high-elevation remote lifestyle that very few are able to experience in this modern era. 


"I can say with absolute certainty that I have rarely heard anything quite like the Crazy Mountain Billies... the playing is exceptional... all of the elements of Bluegrass, but without being classifiable as being part of that genre..."
- American Roots UK

"Crazy Mountain Billies are just crazy man, crazy..."
