Mr. Sun
MR SUN comprises three generations of some of the sharpest minds to apply themselves to the American String Band. Legendary fiddler Darol Anger is at home in a number of musical genres, some of which he helped to invent, and is a member of the original “nuclear” generation of pickers who extended Bluegrass, Jazz, and Classical music to find their common ground. Joe K. Walsh is recognized as one of the foremost contemporary mandolinists, with 4 award-winning years in the Gibson Brothers. Joe has also won acclaim and affection for his vocals and his guitar and octave mandolin work. Grant Gordy is a standout in the crowded field of Acoustic Guitar Wunderkinds. Grant’s work has been widely recognized for its kaleidoscopic excellence and startling emotion, fusing Jazz and Bluegrass concepts to an unprecedented degree. Aidan has established himself as a sought-after bassist. The musical points-of-view in Mr Sun are so strong and personal that one might imagine the group could explode but for the palpable love and humor that emanate from every note they play. The group means to take a relaxed approach to rewriting its own chapter in the American Music Saga, with its latest recording on Compass Records, entitled The People Need Light.

Meadow Mountain:
Meadow Mountain started as a group of friends busking on the corner of the Vail farmers market, and it wasn’t long before they were playing gigs around Vail and Summit counties. They formed initially over a love of traditional and progressive bluegrass music. For the first summer of the band’s tenure, they learned as much bluegrass music as they could, digging into bands like The Punch Brothers, Bluegrass Album Band, and Bela Fleck’s Drive band. It was only a year after the band formed that they were hired to be the house band aboard the cruise ship, "The Norwegian Dawn". There, the band spent a month tightening up their sound and exploring the eastern coast of Canada. Since their return, they have become one of the premier voices in Colorado Bluegrass music. The band has given a TED talk, hosted Denver's only performance oriented bluegrass jam, and won 1st place at the prestigious Rockygrass band competition. Other notable achievements include 1st place at the 2017 Ullrgrass band competition, and 3rd place at the 2017 Telluride bluegrass competition.
