WinterWonderGrass Steamboat Sold Out; Announces Infamous Stringdusters, Billy Strings, Fruition + More to Play Grass After Dark Series
The WinterWonderGrass Grass After Dark legacy has manifested through our attendees’ experiences of their favorite bands, bearing witness to iconic, true-to-WonderGrass moments in the most intimate of settings. Heading into the final month before the seventh annual Colorado festival, we’re pleased to announce this year’s Steamboat Grass After Dark, late night show series.
The WinterWonderGrass Festival had its first ever foray to the east in mid-December. It was a warm welcome to the beautiful Vermont Green Mountains at the Stratton Ski Resort. There’s a saying in New England, and it especially applies to Vermont this time of year. If you don’t like the weather, wait an hour. This adage proved true over all three days of the WinterWonderGrass Vermont festival. Opening day Friday started out mild, mid-40s a bit grey. Everything looked perfect for a fine festival kick-off.
GRAMMY-winning band THE INFAMOUS STRINGDUSTERS are announcing a new live album, Live From Telluride, out this Friday, November 16 on all digital retailers and platforms. The 20-track release features a wide-ranging set spanning the band's 12-year career with tracks from their eight previous studio albums, including 2017's Laws Of Gravity, which won a GRAMMY for "Best Bluegrass Album," and a few covers which THE STRINGDUSTERS have been known to incorporate into their live set.
The sad passing on October 12 of Andy Goessling, founding member of Railroad Earth, the ongoing host band for the Hangtown Music Festival (Oct. 25-28), was a unifying thread at this year’s fest, prompting outspoken love, respect, and admiration. In the end, the shared loss sparked a like-minded cause for life celebration and a shared process of moving forward amid a backdrop of fabulous music, Halloween costumes, and community.
