Masontown
A new and enchanting sound has emerged from the hotbed of the Colorado roots music scene. Masontown, a young band with a concept as timeless as the Rocky Mountains, has alighted onto a bluegrass community that has already produced some of the best that the acoustic music world has to offer. But Colorado, and the wider world of modern music, hasn’t quite heard this yet.

A lauded fiddle champion and classical violinist. A veteran bluegrass mandolin player and composer. One of Colorado’s jazz guitar greats reborn as a flatpicking sensation. An upright bassist with roots running deep in the classical and jazz traditions. These are the individual elements that come together to create Masontown.

Masontown’s sound is a exciting take on the American acoustic tradition. At once fresh and familiar, the group unites the sounds of bluegrass, old-time, folk, and new acoustic music into a sonic melting pot that hearkens back to our deep musical traditions while remaining defiantly modern in conception. Echoes of the poignant exploration of the Matt Flinner Trio blend with the fierce drive of Bill Monroe and the plaintive song-craft of Cahalen Morrison and Eli West. It’s no surprise that the members of Masontown have shared the stage with many of these musical icons that their sound evokes.

The listening halls and dance floors of Colorado have already begun to hail the arrival of this new force in the acoustic music community. Masontown is a band on the move, driven to delight the ears, touch the hearts, and move the feet of generations of music lovers in Colorado and far beyond.
Bootleg Sunshine
These dynamic Newgrass kids put jalapeños all up in yo' corn bread: some dang spicy jams! It means a healthy dose of Mountain stomping, a heavy pinch of Afro-Cuban heat, all topped with majestic lyrics deep like sea cucumbers, death, and scrambled eggs.

Seattle newgrass-ers bring a reputation for foot-stomp'n live shows: charming you with cinematic instrumental tunes, a few Appalachain melodies, some pastoral lyrics of years yonder, and a dash of sundry musics from around the world. On stages west of the Mississippi, Bootleg Sunshine have been growing exponentially from the Pacific Northwest with their "swank harmonies, percussive guitar, dizzying fiddle licks, and taffy-like backbeats." Bootleg Sunshine positively delight those wanting to trip the light fantastic!
Avenhart
Avenhart is a Denver-based indie folk band that combines powerful harmonies and honest lyrics with the warm and rich sound of a six-piece string band. Situated firmly on top are deep, rich lead vocals sung directly from the soul.

Brought together by the music of Tony Rice and The Stanley Brothers, these six musicians set out to create original music that represents their own personal twist on folk and Americana. Using bluegrass instrumentation, they focus on intricate arrangements, warm harmonies, haunting melodies, heart-felt lyrics, and powerful vocals.
