Mountain Honey

Acoustic American Music

Sweet and golden acoustic music inspired by traditional bluegrass, with driving banjo and high lonesome harmonies. Mountain Honey features Linda Leavitt (vocals, guitar, mandolin), Dee Johnson (vocals, bass), Greg Stone (vocals, guitar) and Mike Stahlman (vocals, banjo).

Greg Stone

Greg Stone has taught and performed bluegrass music in the Portland area for 20 years.  It was a Doc Watson album that got him hooked to the genre.  There are so many great guitar players who have influenced him.  Greg also likes to listen to the great harmonies like The Louvin Brothers, Hazel and Alice and so many others.  Check it out.  Come to a show.  You'll be hooked too. Greg also performs with The GTM String Band, teaches guitar and mandolin and is the founder of Taborgrass.

Linda Leavitt

Linda Leavitt is a vocalist who also plays guitar and mandolin.  Her earliest memory is singing four-part southern gospel music in church.  Her daddy really did sing bass!  Linda's deep love for classic bluegrass, country, honky-tonk and swing guides her to songs that stay in your heart.  She is the vocal instructor at Taborgrass and teaches bluegrass singing and vocal harmony workshops privately and at festivals. 

Dee Johnson

Dee Johnson's love of acoustic music was the result of many tips to Weiser and participation in contest fiddle playing. About 11 years ago she discovered bluegrass music, bought herself a bass, and has never looked back. She has played with groups in both the Seattle and Portland areas, and is also the bass player for The Loafers and for Whiskey Deaf.

Mike Stahlman

Mike Stahlman started playing the banjo "when Lyndon Johnson was the President.” Mike played with Sonny Hammond in the band Sunny South, and he was the banjo player for The Sawtooth Mountain Boys and Lee Highway. In addition to playing with Mountain Honey, Mike plays with The Loafers and teaches banjo at Portland Community College, at music camps and at workshops.
