Mountain Tide
As you know, Hunter At Sunrise has presented many established national and local indie artists during our acoustic session segment over the years. But we especially love to present new and emerging artists in the area. And so we are very pleased to have MountainTide visit our show this Sunday morning.  

MountainTide is Holly Bishop and Jim Newsom.  Jim is no stranger to WHRO/WHRV having been a supporter for 30 years. Many might remember him from our television pledge drives. He has been a singer/songwriter/musician/music reviewer here in the area for many years and has actually been on our show before.

Holly is originally from South Dakota and has spent the last 10 years in the area.  She is a multi-instrumentalist playing the violin, guitar and piano.  She is a well-established church musician and music teacher and has only recently teamed with Jim to form MountainTide.

So we hope you will join us this Sunday as MountainTide visits Hunter At Sunrise for the first time. For more about MountainTide, click HERE.
