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.
Salem has performed nationally alongside acts such as Karl Denson, Keller Williams, Rose Hill Drive, Pato Banton, De La Soul, Sweatshop Union, The Meters (PBS), Bone Thugs N Harmony, DJ Logic, Stanton Moore, Will Bernard, Hells Belles, Tab Benoit, Rebirth Brass Band, Steve Earle and Zilla. Salem music is featured in “Tailgate Alaska: The Movie”, the Teva Stand Up Paddling Educational DVD, Hiroyuki Yamada's “End of the Line”, Warren Miller's “Off the Grid”, the Winter X 12 Games After Party CD Compilation and the Bolder Boulder CD compilation.
“Salem unites seemingly disparate topics: global peace and powder shots. Blending jazz, funk, spoken word and some Afro-Cuban beats, it makes crowds dance and think.” Katy Niner, Jackson Hole News and Guide
