Just got back from Durango, Colorado where we played the Durango Bluegrass Meltdown with Larry Gillis, Bluegrass 101, and the New Reeltime Travelers. David Smith of KDUR’s longtime “Sweet By & By” radio program made my day when he told the Durango Telegraph “I’m traveling back to Durango because no festival appreciates true, raw, traditional vocalists like the Meltdown. Having James Reams, Larry Gillis and Bradford Lee Folk in the same place at the same time will be downright dangerous. These three will be showcasing the best in high, lonesome bluegrass and will be bringing an authenticity rarely seen in the West.” Based on the crowd’s response to our sets, I’m pretty sure we made David proud! This was a great event in a fantastic location. You won’t want to miss this one when it rolls around again next year!
With just enough time to catch my breath, we’re heading out again this Friday to Benson, AZ for the Bluegrass in the Park festival. We’ll be playing a couple of sets on Friday and Saturday and hope that you’ll get a chance to join us. They’ve put together a great lineup (if I do say so myself!) of national, regional and local bands. It’s sure to be a fun weekend for the whole family!
