For a musical style born out of rural Kentucky, and initially popularized by a single band, bluegrass has a surprising knack for bringing people from all walks of life together. For Jordan Brandenburg (Mandolin), Michael Rudolph (Bass), Bridger Dunnagan (Fiddle), Dave Pailet (Guitar), and Alex Koukov (Banjo), bluegrass has been a way to connect with others, to make friends and to cultivate joy, so it’s no surprise that community is at the center of their band ethos. The five friends, who comprise Denver’s next big bluegrass band, Turkeyfoot, share momentous instrumental talent, an enthusiasm for collaboration, and some serious songwriting chops. Turkeyfoot’s debut EP was released on June 1st, 2018 and features four original songs as well as a cover of Norman Blake’s “The Railroad Days”. While the band’s original songs feature themes of love and loss in contemporary settings, musically, the members share a love for traditional, straightforward bluegrass and it shows in the no-nonsense, driving arrangements. After taking second place at the 2018 Rockygrass Band Contest,Turkeyfoot is looking forward to a busier tour schedule and recording a full length album. “We’re going to continue being dedicated to the craft, having fun, and continue to ratchet up the gigs so that we can share the music with as many people as possible”, says Rudolph, who plays bass and is one of two founding members. What is their end goal? “I want people to feel happy and inspired by our music”, says Brandenburg, “ and on some songs, I want them to cry.”
Mike Robinson is a Brooklyn based Musician specializing in guitar, pedal steel guitar, banjo and voice. He is formerly a member of the Jeff Austin Band and co leader of progressive acoustic group, The Freewheel Trio.
Bowregard—winners of the 2019 Telluride Bluegrass Band Contest and the 2018 UllrGrass Band Contest—is a five-piece bluegrass band from Boulder, Colorado.
Bowregard formed in 2017 when guitarist Max Kabat and banjo player James Armington met fiddler Colleen Heine and bassist Zachary Smith, who were newly transplanted to Colorado from Savannah, Georgia. Rockygrass Dobro champion Justin Konrad joined the group in early 2019.
With driving rhythm and tight three-part vocal harmonies, Bowregard's underpinnings in traditional bluegrass meld with old-time, Americana, and progressive sensibilities to provide the foundation for their fresh original songwriting and creative reinterpretations of the classic bluegrass repertoire.
