June 23 | Noon - 3pm

Hailed as “the hottest band in the Wasatch” by the Intermountain Acoustic Music Association, Pixie and The Partygrass Boys is composed of lifelong professional musicians drawn together by a common love of bluegrass and skiing in the Wasatch. Featuring soulful, often harmonic vocals and solid strings and rhythm, this tight-knit crew was born out of the belly of a warm cabin after a long day on the slopes- drinking whiskey and singing into the night.

The Sweet Lillies

June 30 | Noon - 3pm

The Sweet Lillies’ high-energy, melodic tunes have quickly captured the hearts of fans in Colorado and beyond. The band, formed in November of 2013, credits its appeal to the original and compelling songwriting of three women who share an unwavering commitment to life on the road. The magnetic combination of Julie Gussaroff on the upright bass, Becca Bisque on the viola, Melly Frances on percussion and lead vocals and Dustin Rohleder on acoustic guitar gives this band a rare and alluring sound.

Pick & Howl

July 7 | Noon-3pm

Founded in Denver CO, the progressive bluegrass 5-piece has gained notoriety as both practitioners of Traditional Bluegrass and genre-warping jammers. Drawing from a broad range of inspiration that includes Townes Van Zandt, Flatt & Scruggs, The Dead and contemporaries like Billy Strings, lead vocalist Jeremy Richardson serves as the conduit to create a unique category of soaring, frenetic, authentic Americana. Backed by a string band featuring Paul Larson on the Scruggs-style banjo, Andrew Gordon on Dobro, Pickin' Pete Barbaro on Mandolin and Eric Gordon on Bass, Pick & Howl delivers a groundbreaking Bluegrass performance that is not to be missed.

Armchair Boogie

July 14 | Noon - 3pm

Armchair Boogie is a 4-piece Bluegrass/Folk band formed in the heart of Central Wisconsin. Conceived and brought to life by Ben Majeska (guitar/vocals) and Augie Dougherty (banjo/vocals) in the Fall of 2014. Their Main Street porch performances in Stevens Point, WI made up their first venue, and soon took on the name “Armchair Boogie”.

Bottlerocket Hurricane

With a flame and a fuse, Bottlerocket Hurricane blasts into auditory airspace to conjure up a musical weather system to the likes of a Hurricane. Their style and approach are rooted in Bluegrass, but like to mix it up with originals, traditionals and some hand-picked favorites.

Liver Down The River

July 28 | Noon - 3pm

From the high mountain river-valley of Durango, Colorado comes a five-piece band of musicians called Liver Down The River. The group has their roots from countless river floats, campfires, late night picking, and Colorado living. Since its creation in 2012, the band has strived to have nothing but a good time. Their unique sound and high energy performances have lead them to share the stage with the likes of The Infamous Stringdusters, Railroad Earth, The New Mastersounds and Poor Man’s Whiskey to name a few.

Thunder and Rain

August 4 | Noon - 3pm

Thunder and Rain is a 4-piece acoustic Americana band from the Colorado Rocky Mountains. Consisting of acoustic guitar, mandolin, dobro, and upright bass, Thunder and Rain seamlessly blend their favorite elements of bluegrass, country, pop and alt-rock to cultivate their own take on the American roots music traditions. Driven by the catchy choruses and dreamy melodies sung by Erinn Peet-Lukes, the band perfectly supports her heartfelt songwriting with strong country grooves, lush harmonies and rich instrumental decoration.

300 Days

August 18 | Noon - 3pm

300 Days exploded onto the Front Range bluegrass scene in 2016 with their fiery, original tunes, handcrafted by a trio of veteran musicians. The powerful, take no prisoners vocals and gravity defying fiddle playing of Melissa McGinley (StereoFidelics), finely honed songwriting by mandolinist and guitarist Nick Dunbar (Mountain Standard Time) and tight rhythms of jazz-trained Dave “Pump” Solzberg (Fox Street All Stars) on upright bass have been electrifying audiences across Colorado.

Woody pines

August 25 | Noon - 3pm

If you’re wondering where the music of Nashville troubadour WOODY PINES comes from, look to the streets. It was on the streets as a professional busker that Woody first cut his teeth, drawing liberally from the lost back alley anthems and scratchy old 78s of American roots music, whether country blues, jugband, hokum, or hillbilly. Heavy rollicking street performances are the key to some of today’s best roots bands, like Old Crow Medicine Show (Woody and OCMS’Gill Landry used to tour the country in their own jugband), and they’re the key to Woody’s intensely catchy rhythms, jumpy lyrics, and wildly delirious sense of fun. Woody traveled all over the streets of this country, road testing his songs, drawing from the catchiest elements of the music he loved and adding in hopped-up vintage electrification to get that old country dancehall sound down right.

Smuggler Mountain Boys

September 1 | Noon - 3pm

The Smuggler Mountain Boys is a traditional and contemporary bluegrass band playing everything from Bill Monroe to The Grateful Dead.
