David Grisman and his bass-playing son Sam, first met and played with guitarist/vocalist extraordinaire Jim Hurst a decade ago at the "Bluegrass at the Beach" camp in Oregon. In 2011, David attended one of Jim's remarkable solo performances in Sonoma County and was inspired to form this trio to explore some of their common roots in folk, country and jazz.
The "Wielands of Mass Destruction" Bluegrass Band is a family bluegrass quintet based out of Black Forest, Colorado. The Wieland boys got their nickname years ago as a rough-and-tumble bunch that like to play hard, especially music. They've been known to break a few things too. Their hard driving bluegrass, tempered with a few gospel and swing favorites, will have the audience hootin' and a hollerin' before the night is over. The boys were joined by Sam Wachtler on guitar in 2010.
Grass It Up is a critically acclaimed band based in Colorado Springs. The musical bond originally formed in Alabama at a Monday night bluegrass jam hosted by Jim Marsh (banjo) with Shannon Carr (guitar) and David Jeffrey (mandolin) regularly attending. After relocating to Colorado in 2005 they met bassist Jon Bross. Grass It Up has shared the stage with the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Drew Emmit Band, Greensky Bluegrass, Elephant Revival, the Oak Ridge Boys, Doug Kershaw and many more.
Mark Gardner and Rex Rideout perform the historic music of the Western experience using vintage instruments and historic playing styles. As "living historians," they re-create the authentic music of the Santa Fe Trail, the battlefields of the Civil War, the cow camps of the Southwest, and more. To hear one of their performances is like a trip back to the days of Stephen Foster, Dan Emmett, and Jack Thorp.
