June 27 - Tenth Mountain Division

Opening Act: David Coile

This bands ruminating respect for music of the past, and deep dedication towards the creative crafting of a new sound, sets Tenth Mountain Division apart in the Colorado music scene. Originating from Boulder, CO, the band's founders originally sought to create an acoustic bluegrass outfit. After a few years dedicated to playing bluegrass, the band transitioned to an electrified, rock’n’roll sound. The band finally found their permanent line up in May of 2017 forming the current quintet that creates a diverse soundscape combining soaring electric guitar leads and jabbing keys while retaining its roots in bluegrass; what the band refers to as "Ski Rock."

But lately, the band has also created a stir on major festival stages, cruise ships and European tours. The band’s adept picking, sweet harmonies, and city-billy swagger have clearly come from playing 200+ shows a year in such varied environments. This quintet brings their stories to the stage in the form of pure energy and passion for acoustic music.
