Fiddlin’ Dave & Morgan

About us.

Fiddlin’ Dave Van Deventer and Morgan Morrison (half the Furnace Mountain Band) have been blending the sounds of the fiddle and bouzouki for 20 plus years. Playing and singing a mixture of originals and Old-Time fiddle tunes/ world music the couple has played many Festivals, Weddings, Barn Dances and gatherings. They make their home in Harpers Ferry WV with their daughter Ava and dogs Cleo and Max.

Morgan and Dave have played tunes from the Appalachian Mountains all over the world and on their way have picked up music and penned their own compositions. Check out the music from their instrumental CD “Tunes from the Riverhouse” on youtube or on our music page. Also check out the video to the left of us playing in a pub in Scotland with our 8 year old Daughter Ava singing and playing fiddle on the classic tune “Boil them Cabbage down”.
