Blue Mountain Tribes O Great Warrior

Recorded at a legendary studio in Hollywood, The Blue Mountain Tribe is back with their strongest album yet.
Back in the mid-2000s in Tehachapi, California, father and son duo Robin and Caleb Hairston (Chiricahua Apache) set out to create an all-Native American blues and rock band—and that’s exactly what they did. Along with drummer, Pat Mata (Northern Chumash) and bassist Jeff Cooper (Cherokee) the Blue Mountain Tribe began creating original songs focused on Native American experiences and they instantly became a hit. 

The band was one of the big winners at the 20th Native American Music Awards, held November 21 at the Seneca Niagara Resort and Casino. Due to record breaking weather conditions in Western New York, Pat was the only member of the band able to attend the show. This week on Gaënö’, Pat joins me to discuss Blue Mountain Tribes recent adventures, including their brand new album, O Great Warrior! Recorded at the Legendary Cherokee Studios in Hollywood, this collection of tunes is sure to impress blues and rock fans alike. Turn it up and sing along- Enjoy!
