The hill country of Southern Illinois is home to one of the Midwest's friendliest and most talented musical trios- the Whistle Pigs.
Their live shows, consisting of vocal harmonies, banjo, accordion and upright bass, are energetic yet humorous and interactice, making them suitable for the sit-down crowd as well as the dancers and the drinkers. Traveling over 70,000 miles and playing about 200 shows annually, the Whistle Pigs have ahd the honor to share the stage with the likes of The Legendary Shack Shakers, Split Lip Rayfield and Black Oak Arkansas while playing a wide range of venues including national festivals, ballrooms, bars and dives, weddings and fish fries.
The Pigs combine old-timey and honky tonk musical sensibilities on such originals as "I'm Broke", "Alcohol", and "Keep On Dreaming" throughout both of their full length albums, the self produced "Long Term Plan" (2009) and their debit album on Mudstomp Records, "Bless Your Hearts and Livers" (2010).
Caribou Mountain Collective
Caribou Mountain Collective is a quartet from Nederland, Colorado. Their extensive
original repertoire channels the rich traditions of both Appalachia and Colorado bluegrass. Their original lyrics and instrumental compositions present unique facets into americana. C.M.C. represents the next step in an ongoing revolution of roots music.
Though only together for two years, the C.M.C. has already established a strong presence in the music scene. Dobro player Allen Cooke was awarded first place at the 2013 Rockygrass dobro competition. Bassist Curly Collins brings his remarkable stage presence and industry expertise from his five years with Mountain Standard Time. Etienne Cremieux, having studied at Berklee College of Music and played extensively on both coasts, brings a decade of bluegrass fiddle experience with a uniquely driving and highly energetic style. Guitarist Miles Perry masterfully embodies the mountain heritage in his catalog of original works. Their instrumental expertise shines through Miles' songs to present a captivating new approach to a classic sound.
2015 has started out to be a big year for CMC. They played two opening sets for the Jeff Austin Band (Denver and Boulder) and recently played an opening set for the Wood Brothers. They played multiple sets at WinterWonderGrass in Avon, CO in February and look forward to a packed summer of traveling including stops at ROMP, Grey Fox, and RockyGrass.
