The Casey Driessen Singularity
Renowned five string fiddle virtuoso Casey Driessen has put together a unique one man show that was a hit at 2012 festivals including Merlefest, Bonnaroo, and Rockygrass. Combining masterful playing with a wide array of effects and loops, (and occasional vocals), Casey creates amazing performances on the spot, with nothing pre-recorded. Check out the videos below.
Casey's credentials run deep, as member of the Sparrow Quartet with Bela Fleck, Abigail Washburn and Ben Sollee, frequent accompanist to Steve Earle, Tim O'Brien, Darrell Scott and others, and Grammy nominated artist for best instrumental song on his debut cd.
Casey brings a show biz flair, his much admired red shoes, and fun to the stage. His song Heartbreak Kid was inspired by a sonogram of his son's heartbeat, and the parents in the room love it from the first beat. He also delivers a powerful sung/spoken performance of Stevie Wonder's 'Living For The City.'
Trout Steak Revival
Trout Steak Revival-Bluegrass Inspired Mountain Music
“Trout Steak Revival is a fivesome articulating very solid bluegrass virtues in a way that subtly and not-so-subtly ushers modernity into elder ways.” -- Mark Tucker Folk and Acoustic Music Exchange
From beginnings as an informal jamming unit during treks through the peaks of the Front Range, Trout Steak Revival has evolved into one of Colorado’s most tightly knit, hard-driving bluegrass bands. Their brand of heartfelt songwriting blends dynamic musicianship with intricately woven harmonies, all tied together with the unmistakable sound of their years of friendship. From sweat-soaked clubs to mountain festivals, the five-piece has shown a tenacity for quick-picking and all the right polish without sacrificing the raw feeling of well-executed bluegrass. The band has earned a place in the mountain states roots scene, performing to sold-out audiences, placing in the Rockygrass Band Competition, and even winning an Emmy Award for a soundtrack with Rocky Mountain PBS. Keeping an eye on traditions of the past but boldly forging into new territory, Trout Steak takes us back to memories of whiskey, laughter, and the misty high country where the band was born.
