Hymn For Her
AlthHymn for Her have been busy touring across the country and abroad over the past few years, injecting juiced-up backwoods country blues with a dose of desert rock psychedelia that has been described as “Hell’s Angels meets the Amish,” and “Hillbillies with electronics opening Pandora’s Box”
In the spring & summer of 2016, they toured Europe and the UK. They returned to the States in the fall to promote their summer release, “Drive Til U Die” recorded partially in their Bambi Airstream and partially in studios with some great engineers/producers. (Vance Powell, Mitch Easter & Jim Diamond).
In 2017, they returned to the UK and Europe playing many festivals, including Glastonbury, to promote “Drive Til U Die” to their overseas audience.
A new release recorded with Vance Powell is due out in the Spring of 2018.
They recorded their 2nd album, “Hymn for Her Presents . . . Lucy and Wayne and the Amairican Stream”, in their vintage 1961 Bambi Airstream trailer at locations stretching from Philadelphia to Malibu on a three-month tour.
For their 3rd release, “Hymn for Her Presents . . . Lucy and Wayne’s Smokin Flames”, the twosome kicked it into high gear. They traveled to Ghetto Recorders/Detroit to work with Jim Diamond. They recorded live & mixed 12 original songs in just one week.
The duo certainly covers a lot of musical territory in 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: “The Riff Monster.”
Catch this duo as they burn down the highway and tear up your town like a Wichita twister.

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...
