The Drew Emmitt Band is Drew Emmitt, Andy Thorn, Greg Garrison and Tyler Grant. Andy Hall from the Infamous Stringdusters will also perform with the group. Denver band Trout Steak Revival, winners of the 2014 Telluride Bluegrass Festival Band Competition, will open the show.
The concert is free and will go on rain or shine. Trout Steak Revival will perform from 5 to 5:45 p.m. and Drew Emmitt will go on from 6 to 8 p.m.
