High Country Hustle brings big smiles and foot-stomping good times to venues and festivals across the United States. Formed in 2017, this four-piece bluegrass band delivers high-energy shows that are sure to get you moving. Their style combines unique songwriting with jam sensibilities that have propelled the band onto premier stages such as the Mishawaka and Fox Theatre. They have hustled their way onto festival lineups—like Rhythms on the Rio, Beanstalk, and Pagosa Folk 'N Bluegrass—sharing the stage with acts like Kitchen Dwellers, Trout Steak Revival, and Tim O'Brien. In 2022, High Country Hustle released its sophomore album "Weather the Storm," produced by Jake Simpson of The Lil Smokies
"Morsel is a five-piece jamgrass band hailing from Denver, CO that mixes classic bluegrass sensibilities nuanced with a more traditional rock edge, resting in a warm balance of old-school string dusting and nu-school improvisation. Since forming in CU Boulder back in 2016, the band has cultivated a robust following throughout the Front Range, born from sets at pubs and breweries and growing exponentially to headline shows at legendary venues, such as The Boulder Theater and The Fox Theater, and to share the stage with nationally touring artists, such as Yonder Mountain String Band, Horseshoes and Hand Grenades, Molly Tuttle, the Kitchen Dwellers, and many more. Morsel's debut self-titled studio album (produced by Chris Pandolfi of the Infamous Stringdusters) released in September of 2021 illustrates the band's powerful songwriting that is its true soul: a cornucopia of catchy hooks, shimmering melodies, and thoughtful lyrics all delivered in a package that will make the most ardent bluegrass skeptic a believer."
