Originating a signature mix of bluegrass, gypsy jazz, Latin rhythms, klezmer music, and myriad global influences into a holistic approach he calls “dawg music,” David Grisman began his career during the explosive folk and blues revival of the 1960s, working in the Even Dozen Jug Band with future stars Maria Muldaur and John Sebastian before launching a career as a solo artist and a collaborator with gypsy jazz legend Stéphane Grappelli, Del McCoury, Red Allen, Bonnie Raitt, and Grateful Dead guitarist Jerry Garcia, among others. Grisman’s iconic 1975 acoustic quintet album with Jerry Garcia, Old and in the Way , became one of the best-selling bluegrass albums of all time. In the same year, he formed his most enduring ensemble, the hugely influential David Grisman Quartet, which is still active today.
Texas-born banjoist Danny Barnes is a visionary musician equally informed by the bluegrass tradition and the punk rock of his youth. Founding member of the Austin string trio Bad Livers, Barnes has worked with artists including Bill Frisell and the Dave Matthews Band. He was the 2015 recipient of the Steve Martin Prize for Excellence in Banjo and Bluegrass. Dave Grisman’s son, Sam Grisman, will join the trio on bass.
Colorado’s Trout Steak Revival has announced the release of their fifth studio album in Winter 2020 and will kick off its album release with a tour through the Colorado mountains, Montana, and the Pacific Northwest. The album includes an array of original songs crafted over the last several years by the individual songwriters and beautifully arranged and recorded by the band over the course of the summer of 2019.
Ever since winning the 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 collaborate with school children in mentoring programs in Colorado and nationwide as part of the Can’d Aid Tunes Ambassador Program. Their music is featured on Bank of Colorado’s radio and television advertisements. 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.
