The Billy Failing Band
The Billy Failing Band
Billy Failing is a banjo player, guitarist singer and songwriter based in Boulder, CO. A recent arrival to Colorado’s Front Range, Billy spent the last three years in Nashville, becoming deeply immersed in the bluegrass and acoustic music scene. He has also toured extensively with bluegrass guitar phenom Billy Strings, and currently holds a position as a full-time member in his band.



In addition to his work on the road as a sideman, Billy has written, recorded and toured under his own name. In 2017, he successfully self-released his debut solo album, “Calling My Trouble by Name.” The album features several of Nashville’s finest acoustic musicians, providing a commanding backdrop for Failing’s distinctive voice and songwriting. While his style is firmly rooted in American roots music and bluegrass, his music draws inspiration from all corners of the musical spectrum, from John Hartford, Tim O’Brien and Béla Fleck to George Harrison, Pink Floyd and Radiohead, blending the tradition, intimacy and purity of acoustic music with the innovation and pioneering spirit of modern music.
300 Days
300 Days
300 Days exploded onto the Front Range bluegrass scene in 2016 with their fiery, original tunes, handcrafted by a trio of veteran musicians. The powerful, take no prisoners vocals and gravity defying fiddle playing of Melissa McGinley (StereoFidelics), finely honed songwriting by mandolinist and guitarist Nick Dunbar (Mountain Standard Time) and tight rhythms of jazz-trained Dave “Pump” Solzberg (Fox Street All Stars) on upright bass have been electrifying audiences across Colorado.
The Dirty Grass Players
The Dirty Grass Players
Turning heads while showcasing original bluegrass and newgrass tunes such as “Backwards Drifting”.
The Dirty Grass Players bring a
solid performance from a group of musicians that come from diverse
backgrounds, but have one similar interest in
playing for the love of music
Pierce Edens
Pierce Edens
As those who have seen him live can attest, Pierce Edens absorbed the songwriting, storytelling and musical styling of the surrounding Appalachian Mountains, where he spent his childhood. This history takes the form of old time, folk and bluegrass music as well as spoken words of storytellers from his North Carolina home; this has earned him the moniker of “Appalachicana.”

Over the last ten years, Edens has been drawing on those roots and blending them with the grungy rock and roll sounds that took him in his teenage years. The result is a haunting and fiery mixture that is notoriously hard to pin down. Allmusic.com classifies Edens as both “Folk-Rock” and “psychedelic-grunge,” and No Depression writer Bill Kopp says “[He] could just as easily- and accurately- be tagged with the singer/songwriter label; He’s a gritty troubadour who takes what he needs from each style, blending and bending it to suit the needs of his songs.”

Through relentless touring, independently producing 4 albums (with one on the way), one full length concert film, and sharing the stage with musical heroes such as: Jim Lauderdale, Todd Snider, Will Kimbrough, and Sturgill Simpson, Edens has garnered a dedicated following of fans across the nation. And as Fred Mills of Blurt magazine says… “Edens is the R.F.D. (Real effin’ Deal), and when he and his band have their collective back against the wall, there’s trouble in store.”
