Ragged Union is a six-piece, hard-driving bluegrass band, performing original tunes and off-the-beaten-path standards, with a focus on the duet singing of husband-and-wife pair Geoff and Christina Union. Award-winning instrumental work, a powerful rhythmic drive, uptempo arrangements and edgy, outsider songwriting are the marks of their style. Influences include Red Allen, Danny Paisley, John Hartford, Danny Barnes, Alan Munde, Jesse McReynolds, and Vassar Clements, with a side of Texas and a healthy dose of the blues.
Geoff and Christina formed the band in the fall of 2013 after moving to Golden from Austin, Texas, and immediately began working the Front Range bluegrass scene, from Oskar Blues to Avogadro’s Number, Cervantes Other Side, Swallow Hill, and the Golden Clear Creek Concert Series. The band has also performed at several festivals including Bluegrass on the Arkansas (Salida) and the Kerrville Folk Festival (Kerrville, Texas). Future dates include the Golden Bluegrass Festival, Midwinter Bluegrass Festival and High Mountain Hay Fever Festival in 2015. The “Ragged Union Bluegrass Trio” will be traveling to England in October 2014 for short tour and appearance at the Lancaster Music Festival. Plans are being made for a Ragged Union debut album recording project in the fall.
Trout Steak Revival
Catch Trout Steak Revival live and you can’t help but notice the band’s gift to thrive in the moment. In 2008 the band formed, sparked by jam sessions with close friends during backpacking trips and backyard parties. The sounds of fiddle, mandolin, banjo, guitar, bass, dobro, and accordion blend in TSR’s bluegrass-inspired mountain music. While each member of the band composes original tunes, harmonic contributions are added by the entire band, following the bluegrass tradition and creating a unique sound. Scores of Colorado venues have hosted TSR since first honing their sound at the legendary Bucksnort Saloon. The five members hail from Colorado and the Midwest. TSR’s lyrics visit themes of love, loss, settling into a new home, and other meditations, wrapped in thoughtful harmonies and conversation between their strings. The music comes from the heart and goes to the heart, whether you’re listening to a live performance or on your car stereo, as the golden light of the last hours of the day paint the scenery outside your windshield.
