Iron Horse
Iron Horse
Through the years and after involvement with several groups, the present band was born as a result of the participation of Tony Robertson, Vance Henry and Ricky Rogers in the Jake Landers Band. In January 2003, Anthony was asked to fill an opening for a banjo player and the present Iron Horse configuration evolved. Iron Horse creates much of its own music, with an innate ability for cross-genre arrangements. Iron Horse has three self-produced albums, containing previously un-released compositions, and Iron Horse-composed originals.

Iron Horse was approached in January 2003 by Los Angeles-based CMH Records to record a tribute album to the heavy metal band, Metallica, which was released in October 2003. Iron Horse has recorded twelve projects for CMH Records. Tributes to Metallica, Led Zeppelin, Ozzy Osbourn, Modest Mouse, The Shins, Guns & Roses, The Goo Goo Dolls, Hank Williams, Black label Society as well as others.

The skill and ability of Iron Horse to transpose metal to bluegrass while maintaining the identity of the originals is exceptional. The versatility of Iron Horse is demonstrated by the more traditional flavor of their first CD, “Ridin’ Out the Storm”. This versatility enables Iron Horse to perform such standards as “Rocky Top” and “Man of Constant Sorrow” with little effort, while entertaining “metal-heads” with the familiarity of the compositions of metal and pop icons – all on the same stage
Turkeyfoot
Turkeyfoot
For a musical style born out of rural Kentucky, and initially popularized by a single band, bluegrass has a surprising knack for bringing people from all walks of life together. For Jordan Brandenburg (Mandolin), Michael Rudolph (Bass), Bridger Dunnagan (Fiddle), Dave Pailet (Guitar), and Alex Koukov (Banjo), bluegrass has been a way to connect with others, to make friends and to cultivate joy, so it’s no surprise that community is at the center of their band ethos. The five friends, who comprise Denver’s next big bluegrass band, Turkeyfoot, share momentous instrumental talent, an enthusiasm for collaboration, and some serious songwriting chops. Turkeyfoot’s debut EP was released on June 1st, 2018 and features four original songs as well as a cover of Norman Blake’s “The Railroad Days”. While the band’s original songs feature themes of love and loss in contemporary settings, musically, the members share a love for traditional, straightforward bluegrass and it shows in the no-nonsense, driving arrangements. After taking second place at the 2018 Rockygrass Band Contest,Turkeyfoot is looking forward to a busier tour schedule and recording a full length album. “We’re going to continue being dedicated to the craft, having fun, and continue to ratchet up the gigs so that we can share the music with as many people as possible”, says Rudolph, who plays bass and is one of two founding members. What is their end goal? “I want people to feel happy and inspired by our music”, says Brandenburg, “ and on some songs, I want them to cry.”
The Matchsellers
The Matchsellers
The Matchsellers are Warsaw, Indiana native Andrew Morris and Julie Bates of Kansas City, Missouri. Their exciting, gritty, and often hilarious stage show has been developed over three years of relentless touring across the US and Europe. Though deeply rooted in bluegrass and old time tradition, the pair’s respective backgrounds in electric blues guitar and classical violin– as well as a penchant for the absurd– offer a refreshing point of view. The group has been featured on various NPR and international radio stations as well as blogs including The Bluegrass Situation, Dying For Bad Music and more.

Bates and Morris met in 2012 while teaching abroad in Leipzig, Germany. They found common ground in the music of their homeland, and hobby turned to profession when they hit the road permanently a year later. Their second full-length album, Songs We Made Up, features the duo’s excellent musicianship, tight vocal harmonies, and wacky world view, ranging from beautiful waltzes to stolen crackers. Watch out for them this year at the Folk Alliance International Conference (MO), the Red Dirt Ball (OK), the John Hartford Memorial Festival (IN), the Wood Tick Festival (MI), the Tri-State Bluegrass Festival (IN), or town near you!
