Blues, bluegrass and country music in Silverthorne

SILVERTHORNE ” The Silverthorne Pavilion recently announced a new concert lineup that will take concert-goers on a tour of the musical evolution of blues to bluegrass to country.

The series begins with the Otis Taylor Band on April 3 and is followed by Spring Creek Bluegrass Band on April 10 and the Yampa Valley Boys on April 17.

Taylor is a celebrated blues artist who resides in Boulder but has taken his poignant, emotionally charged music around the globe. His work has a decidedly electric, almost psychedelic sound which he describes as “trance-blues.”

The Spring Creek quartet plays a mix of bluegrass standards and compelling originals, and all four musicians are accomplished vocalists. Spring Creek is built on the fundamentals of bluegrass, but create its own contemporary style.

The circle of music influenced by the banjo will be completed with the Yampa Valley Boys. The Boys were nominated for the 2007 Crescendo Award by the membership of the Western Music Association. They also made the WMA’s Top Ten list in the category of best duo or group for traditional western music and western swing music. With an easy, down-home cowboy humor, the Yampa Valley Boys perform an intriguing collection of cowboy/western songs featuring banjo pickin’ and mandolin strummin’.

“This series is an opportunity for us to showcase Colorado bands and artists and also to bring acts to Summit County that residents typically would have to travel to Denver or Eagle County to see perform,” said Christine Mahorney, the Pavilion Coordinator for the Town of Silverthorne.

Tickets for the new series are now on sale, and can be purchased for individual concerts or as a discounted three-concert ticket.
