Years later Cousin Curtiss continues to turn heads wherever he plays solo, with the band, or supporting acts like The Commonheart, Karl Denson's Tiny Universe, G Love and Special Sauce, Infamous Stringdusters, Sweet Lillies, Andy Thorn (of Leftover Salmon), John Stickley, Pepper, The Bellamy Brothers, and the list goes on.

Young Dubliners
7:30pm / Animas City Theatre
$25/$30 / 21+  After thirty years as one of the world's leading Celtic Rock bands, the Young Dubliners have begun work on their tenth studio album and will dedicate much of the year to the project while still heading out on the road for their summer tour. The boys spent the first quarter of 2022 playing shows all over the US and "reconnecting with fans while we tightened up as a musical unit and prepared to hit the studio" says lead singer, Keith Roberts.The band is Roberts (vocals / guitar), Chas Waltz (Violin, keys, vocals), Justin Pecot (guitar, vocals), Dave Ingraham (drums) and Ethan Jones (bass guitar).   With a solid line up and a new batch of songs to play, The YD are excited to get out on the road and continue to bring back live music into people's lives. New dates are being added daily as the world reopens. "We want to be the band who reminds the world how important a good gig can be to our sanity after what we've all been through" says Roberts. For only the second time the band is looking to its fans to finance the album instead of a traditional record company. "The business has changed so muchover our lifetime that it no longer makes sense for us to take money from a label and then owe it all back" says Roberts. "Making all our supporters co producers is a far more rewarding way to make a record and allows us to maintain control all the way". The band have teamed up with long timeproducer, Irish born Tim Boland, and will begin recording in the coming months. The Young Dubliners have released nine albums to date. The set on the upcoming dates will draw from all their albums and include unreleased new material.   In recent years the Young Dubs have appeared twice on ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live, had songs featured in TV shows (Sons Of Anarchy, Human Target) and toured extensively as a headliner and as the opener for such a diverse list of artists as Collective Soul, Jethro Tull, Johnny Lang, Los Lobos, Chris Isaak and many more.   Although the Young Dubliners sound is most commonly called 'Celtic Rock', that label can often be misleading. The Irish influence is certainly there, but it's not the only influence that bursts through on their albums or live shows. After all, several of the band members have no Irish roots of any kind. "That was always the idea", explains Roberts "The sound was intended to be a hybrid because we all come from different backgrounds. Even though I am from Ireland, a lot of the music I listened to growing up wasn't Irish at all, but when I got here, I got homesick and developed a new appreciation for Irish Music. In truth the Celtic riffs can just as easily come from the American band members. Everyone writes now so you never know what you'll end up with"

Through the Roots
8:00pm / Animas City Theatre
Few things ever grow tall without roots. For the members of Through The Roots, it took a decade of inspired songwriting and heavy touring to develop the band's unique sound: a modern blend of roots reggae, hip-hop, rock, and electronic pop. It's a sound that nods to the band's diverse influences while also reaching far beyond them, and it began humbly enough, with the guys hosting their own backyard shows in college towns across Southern California. Word spread. Crowds grew. Through The Roots bought a renovated school bus and hit the road hard, graduating from college frat parties to larger clubs, building their audience, show by energetic show. Throughout it all, the band kept writing and exploring new sounds, working their way towards a truly unique sound that blended tradition with technology

Mishka & Of Good Nature
8:00pm / Animas City Theatre
Tickets 18+ / $22/$25   Mishka is a Bermudian musician and singer/songwriter. A traveler and sailor at heart; his lyrics and sound are deep reflections of the reggae roots soul and consciousness of the Caribbean culture in which he grew up but which are equally infused by his hypnotically bluesy folk acoustic compositions and vocalizations.   Mishka first emerged back in '99 on the independent music scene in London with his eponymously titled debut album put out by the influential Brit record label, Creation Records. Since then he has toured extensively throughout Europe, the Americas, Japan and Australia and has gone on to release 5 more full length studio albums, all of which have received worldwide critical acclaim. The most recent album, Roots Fidelity, was released in 2015 under Mishka's own indie label Mishka Music and recorded and produced in Maui, Hawaii.   Of Good Nature incites and unites listeners with a fusion-friendly approach to today's music, uncovering a highly accessible sound that concentrates on lyrics, uplifting energy and musicianship, packed into a potent blend of alternative, pop, rock, soul, and reggae. Ever evolving, OGN incorporates different instruments, backgrounds, genres and styles, creating extraordinary and excitingly passionate music, expressed on the stage and on the record.   Of Good Nature recently supported Michael Franti & Spearhead on the Good Day For A Good Day World Tour in Fall 2021, performing in amphitheaters across the United States. In July 2021, the band joined the Dirty Heads Orlando Vacation lineup with Dirty Heads, Sublime With Rome, and Hirie.

Stillhouse Junkies Album Release MEGAParty! - Night One
8:00pm / Animas City Theatre
Colorado Love: Stillhouse Junkies are joined by fellow Coloradoans WoodBelly for the first of their 2 hometown album release shows.   $20 Single Night Pass / $30 Two Night Pass (Only 100 available online)   Doors 7:00pm / Show 8:00pm   Stillhouse Junkies Bio  Born in a distillery in Durango, CO, 2021 IBMA Momentum Band of the Year and two-time Telluride Bluegrass band contest finalists Stillhouse Junkies play a delirious, head-spinning mixture of original roots, blues, funk, swing, and bluegrass music. With all three band members sharing lead vocal and songwriting duties, the Junkies conjure a wide range of tonal landscapes that pay tribute to the iconic sounds of Gillian Welch, the Allman Brothers, Tim O'Brien, the Wood Brothers, John Hiatt, and countless others while breaking new musical ground with their genre-bending original material. Stillhouse Junkies are proud to be Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival showcase artists and 2020 & 2021 IBMA World of Bluegrass showcase artists.   Wood Belly:  Something downright mystical is happening on Colorado's Front Range. The very roots of traditional acoustic music seem to sprout from the dirt, shaking their dust into the winds of change, to be breathed in and become the soul of musicians who craft their songs here.   Such is the music of Wood Belly, a musical collective of Chris Weist (mandolin), Tom Knowlton (guitar), Chris Zink (dobro), Aaron McCloskey (banjo) and Taylor Shuck (bass). A Wood Belly song has its own lyrical persona and masterful arrangement; rooted in bluegrass tradition and planted solidly in contemporary innovation.   The band has been garnering attention since the release of their 2018 debut album Solid Ground, which was followed by a win at the prestigious Telluride Bluegrass Band Competition (earning them a main stage performance slot at the 2019 festival), as well as a 2018 IBMA Momentum Band of the Year nomination.   Wood Belly released it's second album, Man on the Radio in January of 2020 capping an impressive stretch of writing and releases. The new 13-track collection was recorded at Swingfingers Studio in Fort Collins, CO with Grammy winning producer Sally Van Meter and engineer Aaron Youngberg, and features special guest fiddler Jeremy Garrett of The Infamous Stringdusters on several tracks.

An evening with MarchFourth: Día de los Muertos
8:00pm / Animas City Theatre
Doors 7:00pm / MarchFourth 8:00pm 21+ / $27 / $30   MarchFourth is a joy-inducing force of entertainment. The colorful explosion of brassy funk, rock, and jazz is all about the groove. This larger-than-life group of musicians and acrobats tours the country year-round, bringing a spirit of celebration wherever they go. MarchFourth is, in a word, FUN!   With exceptional musical quality and a visual kaleidoscope of performers, MarchFourth is a spectacle of high-energy compositions, colorful costumes, and irresistible charisma! M4 has been seen on stages from ESPN's Espy Awards to festivals like Wakarusa, Bumbershoot, and High Sierra Music Fest, to world-class venues like The Kennedy Center and The Fillmore, and even a cultural exchange tour to China, sponsored by the US State Department.   MarchFourth's track "Gospel" (from their self-released album Rise Up, 2009) was featured as the closing credits theme song in the Disney/Pixar animated film, Monsters University. Their next album Magnificent Beast was self-released in 2011, produced by fellow Portlander Steve Berlin (Los Lobos).   For their most recent album, Magic Number, fifteen MarchFourth musicians traveled from Portland, Oregon to New Orleans, Louisiana to record with Producer Ben Ellman (Galactic) and Engineer/Producer Mikael "Count" Eldridge (DJ Shadow, Tycho, Trombone Shorty). With local talent at the helm, the album is full of the captivating grooves and brassy swagger you'd expect from MarchFourth, plus a healthy dose of New Orleans magic, with guest appearance by Trombone Shorty, Stanton Moore (drums), and Matt Perrine (sousaphone).   "Perfectly merging the artistic spirit of Portland with the musical spectacle of New Orleans, MarchFourth put on one of the most complete shows of any band on any stage. From rocking big band jam tunes, choreography and feats of strength that need to be seen to be believed, MarchFourth entertains on every level every second they are on the stage…or off!" ~Live for Live Music.
