The band has been around since 1976 and was formed by Al Jackson (guitar, mandolin, and lead vocals). The group has had at least one previous recording to their credit and this latest consists of 13 titles, most of which were composed by regional songwriters including Steve Brown, Dale Keys, and Steve Eaton, among others. Some of the more prestigous titles include "Blow Wyoming Blow," "Red Eye Saloon," "This Old Hat," and banjoist Mike Bond's "Buckhorn Mountain Breakdown." There are also rousing interpretations of "Life Is Like A Mountain Railway" and the classic Tommy Jackson instrumental "Tomahawk."
The local media lauds the Buckhorn Mountain Boys as "...one of the freshest sounds to come along in quite a while..." and "One More River" clearly establishes them as the state of Idaho's premier bluegrass band.
