We regret to announce that Del McCoury will not be able to join Hot Rize for their 40th Anniversary Celebration in Boulder. He is having a medical procedure done on one of his eyes which requires him to stay off of airplanes for 4-6 weeks because of the pressure. While he'll be fully recovered shortly, this will keep him from making the trek to Boulder. Del wanted us to pass along that "he is grateful for calling these guys friends for almost all of their 40 year career and is disappointed to not be able to join in the Anniversary fun."https://www.bouldertheater.com/event/1581900/
Their original songs are part of the bluegrass canon, their showmanship earned them the first-ever Entertainer of the Year award from the IBMA, and their “partnership” with Red Knuckles and the Trailblazers is … nearly indescribable. There is no other band like Hot Rize, and the Colorado bands that followed in their wake all cite them as a major influence.
Following Charles Sawtelle’s untimely death in 1999, the band regrouped with bluegrass’ reigning flat picker, North Carolinian Bryan Sutton on guitar. Since 2002, Hot Rize’s unparalleled all-star lineup has held steady and continues to create new and inspired music.
Don’t miss this rare chance to celebrate the homegrown musical legacy of one of Colorado’s most revered bands. Warm up your winter with two hot and unforgettable nights of music at the Boulder Theater with Hot Rize and their special guests
