AVON — Mountain Standard Time visits Agave Saturday night as part of the group’s tour through mountain towns in Colorado, Utah, Idaho and Montana. After Agave, the band will make its way to Colorado’s Front Range for its annual Mardi Grass celebrations with special guest Tim Carbone, of Railroad Earth in Boulder, Denver and Fort Collins.

With Zack Scott on drums, Nick Dunbar and Stanton Sutton on mandolin and guitar, Otis Lande on bass and Ryan Ebarb on keyboards, Mountain Standard Time produces a unique sound by blending vocal harmonies, well­-crafted melodies and characteristic improvisation that translates into a high energy sound.

“Like Yonder Mountain String Band before them, these guys are carrying the Rocky Mountain bluegrass sound around the country,” said Crawford Byers, of Rocky Mountain Entertainment, the show promoter. “We’re happy to have them back over the holiday weekend, and the show will be a great warm up for WinterWonderGrass.”

Participate in The Longevity Project

The Longevity Project is an annual campaign to help educate readers about what it takes to live a long, fulfilling life in our valley. This year Kevin shares his story of hope and celebration of life with his presentation Cracked, Not Broken as we explore the critical and relevant topic of mental health.

Mountain Standard Time has branded a new genre, created from the style of music dubbed “Rocky Mountain FreeGrass.” The band released its first EP, “Sunny,” in early 2013 and currently plans to get back into the studio for a new release later this year.
