  • If you love Rocky Mountain Bluegrass as much as we do, you've surely happened upon the skilled sounds of Trout Steak Revival. The quintet is making waves in our little pond with their elaborate harmonies, which are backed by strong instrumentation and impressive song writing abilities. While the group hails out of Denver, their music was inspired by what lies just beyond our city in the "misty high country" where they say the music was born. They started as an informal Bluegrass Jam group and have made huge leaps in years since.

  • Telluride lived up to the hype!!!  There were howls at the "super moon," tarp runs, tributes to one of our favorites, Levon Helm, new friends, and old friends.

No.  Telluride Bluegrass is an experience and the best word to describe it is "legendary."
