Winter Wondergrass in Steamboat Springs Colorado “Let’s throw a bluegrass music festival in Steamboat Springs, CO at the coldest time of the winter months.” – fake quote from the good people who put on Winter Wondergrass. This quote might seem like Winter Wondergrass is just a crazy idea – and it is. But this crazy idea is borderline genius. (Aren’t they all?) Winter Wondergrass has been bouncing around Colorado for 5 years, and this year it landed in Steamboat Springs, Colorado for the first time. We were super happy to be back in Colorado this Winter so we could...Read More
Ullrgrass Festival seemed like the perfect way to kick-off festival season in our newly re-established home state. For 3 days, music lovers join together in Golden to praise Ullr, music, and beer – all while dressed up like Vikings. Why Vikings? Why not?! It is a Norse god! Golden is a beautiful town nestled in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, and Ullrgrass is spread between two iconic town locations – the daytime activities are held in Parfet Park, while the evening continues indoors at the Buffalo Rose. The Community of Golden shines strong at this festival, which is run...Read More
This review of Strings and Sol may seem long overdue. Although, by this point, I am sure most of you have read quite enough about it to know you are definitely not going to miss it in 2017.

How did I miss some of these while I was there?” Seriously, every single moment is so incredible, you can’t possibly see...Read More
To say that Leftover Salmon has persevered over the past 25 years would be an understatement. Withstanding a changing musical landscape, a shuffling of some key players and the loss of a dear friend and founder, Leftover Salmon has emerged as one of the leaders in today’s live music scene. In the midst of a summer filled with festivals large and small, as well as individual engagements and a unique new spin on a festival in North Carolina, Leftover Salmon had a stop closing out the main stage on day-one of Blue Ox Music Festival in Eau...Read More
We caught up with Leftover Salmon after their soundcheck at Blue Ox Music Festival. Drew Emmitt, Vince Herman, Greg Garrison and Andy Thorn sat down with us for about 40 minutes. It wasn’t the best location for audio recording. We were in a hospitality tent that was occasionally occupied by caterers setting up, and there was an occasional truck idling outside. At one point another band took to the stage for a soundcheck. We did our best to transcribe this as accurately as possible, and to correctly determine who the speaker was at all times. There may be an occasional...Read More
