Hymn For Her
Although Hymn for Her hails from Philadelphia, Lucy characterizes H4H as “a band born on Route 66.” With their daughter Diver, Manny the nanny and Pokey, their spirit guardian dog, this little self-contained unit enjoys life’s unknown adventures on the highway. They recently had a successful U.K/European tour and plan to return soon.
H4H live, tour and record in their 16 foot, 1961 Bambi Airstream (comes with dog and baby). Their last release, ‘Lucy & Wayne and THE AMAIRICAN STREAM’ was entirely recorded in their classic trailer on a coast to coast U.S tour. They stopped at various campgrounds and friends driveways between shows, set up their gear in their Bambi/home recording studio, rolled tape and rocked out. The duo certainly covers a lot of musical territory in their new release "Lucy & Wayne’s Smokin Flames". Their wild-eyed mash-up of country, blues and punk led U.K. music critic Steve Bennett to call H4H’s sound “a riotous, rocking roadkill stew,” while others have referenced such diverse bands as Captain Beefheart, Primus, X, R.L. Burnside, JS Blues Explosion and the Ramones.
Impressively, the two create their “ripsaw sounds” (Los Angeles Times’ Randy Lewis) with only a few instruments. Wayne (with the devilish voice), mainly playing the kick-drum, high-hat, acoustic guitar and harp, serves as the group’s rhythmic driving force. Lucy (of the fallen-angel voice) delivers a gritty squall on her “Lowebow” — a custom-made cigar-box guitar that she describes as “The Riff Monster.”
Broke Bridge is a Denver bluegrass band anchored in old favorites and arcing toward the future. The group has been collecting fans on the Colorado Front Range since it formed in early 2011 and has performed at local clubs, upscale cocktail parties, hippie bars and on the street. (One of its first gigs was on the 16th Street Mall, where the $80 in tips it made in one hour it spent on drinks in 15 minutes.) The band includes Grant Van Pelt on mandolin, Heather Tousignant on fiddle, Quentin Young on guitar, Ryan Herbst on banjo, and Stacy Liles on bass. These experienced performers create sweet vocal harmonies over tight musical backdrops..
Trout Steak Revival
Ever since winning the 2014 Telluride Bluegrass Festival Band Competition, Trout Steak Revival has quickly become a quintessential Colorado band. The band won an Emmy Award for a soundtrack they contributed to a Rocky Mountain PBS. They’ve collaborated with school children in mentoring programs in Denver and Steamboat Springs. Their music is featured on Bank of Colorado’s radio and television advertisements. Most recently, Westword named them Denver’s Best Bluegrass Band, and they were nominated as a Momentum Band of the Year by the International Bluegrass Music Association.
Defined more by expressive songwriting and heartfelt harmonies rather than any one genre, Trout Steak Revival crosses over and blends the bounds of folk, indie, bluegrass, and roots evoking its own style of Americana. With five band members all contributing unique lyrics, lead vocals, acoustic instrumentation, and harmonies, Trout Steak Revival delivers memorable tunes to an energetic fanbase that grows hand-in-hand with the band.
Trout Steak Revival has shared the stage with The Wood Brothers, Yonder Mountain String Band, Steep Canyon Rangers, Infamous Stringdusters, Nicki Bluhm, Sara Watkins, Leftover Salmon, and many more...
