Headed back to Golden Colorado to play our favorite brewery in the universe. New Terrain is always a great time mainly because of all the good people there. The beer is outrageously good too. Hope to see our friends out on Jan 30th for some beers and jams.... See MoreSee Less

7:00pm- Pick and Howl
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 Richard 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.
8:15pm – The Lonesome Days
The Lonesome Days are a 5 piece, high energy, modern bluegrass ensemble from Denver, Colorado. Blending heartfelt songwriting and powerful vocals with precise instrumentation and undeniable groove, The Lonesome Days have charged their way to the forefront of the Colorado bluegrass scene. Songwriting is a major focus for the band but listeners can always expect a unique repertoire of standard bluegrass and other cross-genre covers. With the recent addition of fiddle to the band, The Lonesome Days are carving out their niche in the national bluegrass arena.
9:30pm –Hot Buttered Rum
Hot Buttered Rum, a souped-up, left-coast string band, is the brainchild of five uniquely gifted musicians who weave their love of bluegrass, folk, jazz and soul into a riveting strain of Americana. String bass and five-alarm fiddle merge with guitar, banjo, mandolin and drums to frame the voices of its two contrasting writers, fueling a dance party with roots in Appalachia and its branches in California. It’s a sound that’s as tough to describe as it is easy to love. Nearly twenty years into its journey, HBR’s music, dreamed up in the backcountry of the High Sierra and the basements of San Francisco, has found its way into the hearts, minds and bodies of fans nationwide. The band continues to tour year-round in support of its many albums and social causes.

7:00pm – Buffalo Commons
Buffalo Commons is a collaboration of friends from Steamboat Springs, CO who enjoy fishing and floating rivers together as much as they do playing and writing songs together. The bond they share off stage comes across in the music and is felt by everyone through the energy of their live performances. One can't help but be captivated by singer/songwriter and guitarist Ty Woods' soulful yet powerful voice. Band Members Eric Baker on mandolin, Randy Kelly on fiddle, and Denton Turner on upright bass provide a full body of sound to match the emotion and intensity of Ty's vocals. Focused on writing original music with well thought out compositions and arrangements, the band works hard to stand out as a unique sound in acoustic music. Buffalo Commons' songs will pull at your heartstrings in every way and may make you want to laugh, dance, cry and rejoice all in one show.
8:15pm – Rapidgrass
Rapidgrass embodies the notion that nature, and particularly mountains, can bring out the best in our art, and we have dedicated much of our creative energy into bringing that art back to the people of the mountains. Rapidgrass focuses on travel to mountain towns and inspires mountain people and athletes around the globe. Our music is motivated by and made for those who find peace in the mountains. We focus our energy to outdoor mountain lifestyle/culture events. Focusing our travels to mountain towns has also given us a great palate of mountain music styles to draw from including styles from North America, France, Italy, Russia, Tibet, Argentina, and Ireland.
The full-time lineup includes Mark Morris (guitar, lead vocals); Coleman Smith (violin); Charlie Parker Mertens (upright bass); and Alex Johnstone (mandolin, vocals). This Colorado ensemble uses classical, gypsy, bluegrass, pop, swing, and other world rhythms to create what is, and can only be described of as, Rapidgrass.
9:30pm – Head for the Hills
Head for the Hills--Adam Kinghorn, Joe Lessard, Matt Loewen--come out swinging and invigorated with fresh sounds on their latest EP, Say Your Mind (out March 22). Recorded at Swingfingers Studios in Fort Collins (Colorado), the band brought a larger band than ever before, including drummer Darren Garvey of Elephant Revival, Vocalist Kim Dawson, Dobroist Todd Livingston, a horn section and more. The material reflects both the turbulent social rhythms of our current era and more timeless moments of joy, growth, and change—think #MeToo, the current body politic, and inequality, but also relationships, fatherhood and growing up.
