"I got to work on some shows Pat Fiddle put together exploring the music of John Hartford. Wild man though he appears, Pat is actually a hard-working, nuanced and thoughtful performer. I was a great admirer and a friend of Hartford, and I think Pat does a good job of recalling John's sound and spirit while still being himself, plus he has the musicianship and singing chops to pull it off. I was impressed. Pat also did a good job of keeping it all organized with quite a few participants. We had a good time and the audience liked it too!"
- Pete Wernick of Hot Rize

Pat Fiddle is a classically trained violinist turned Bluegrass/Newgrass/Rock and Roll fiddle player that is THE quintessential front man. He is not boring to say the least, and he sure knows how to captivate a crowd with his quirky style and his excellent playing.

When a snowflake falls it melts to stream, and eventually meets the creek. The creek then pours down though the canyon and the rapids begin to speak.

The celebration of mountains and whitewater rapids is the inspiration for everything Rapidgrass. Rapidgrass is original mountain music influenced by an active, outdoor lifestyle. Brought together through music and love for mountains, Rapidgrass defines modern, acoustic, Colorado mountain music.

The lineup of Rapidgrass includes Colorado native and pro skier Mark Morris (guitar, vocals); Coleman Smith (violin, mandolin, vocals); Carl Minorkey (upright bass, tenor banjo, vocals); and Alex Johnstone (mandolin, fiddle, vocals). Adjunct players include Billy Cardine (dobro, vocals, recording producer) and Kyle Hauser (banjo, vocals). This font range Colorado ensemble uses classical, gypsy, bluegrass, pop, swing, and other world rhythms to create what is, and can only be described of as, Rapidgrass.

Rapidgrass Music Festival and Rapidgrass the ensemble were twins born of the desire to celebrate the rapids of Clear Creek and the mountains of Idaho Springs through mountain music, each complementing the other. Rapidgrass released its first CD, RAPIDGRASS QUINTET, in 2013 and was voted top 5 mountain albums by the Mountain Arts Culture Colorado. In 2015 Rapidgrass then released CROOKED ROAD and went on to win the prestigious ROCKYGRASS band contest that same year. Rapidgrass is currently producing their 3rd album, HAPPY TRAILS, which is due to be released at the eighth annual Rapidgrass Music Festival this June 23-25. Rapidgrass has had the pleasure of bringing mountain music throughout Colorado, Alaska, the lower 48, and the European Alps. Rapidgrass is eager to kick off their 2017 music endeavors.
