Golden Music Festival 2016
Welcome to the Golden Music Festival at Clear Creek History Park! This event is a benefit for Golden History Museums. All proceeds earned support GHM’s education programs and collections conservation. A few reminders: alcohol is allowed only within the park and outside alcohol is prohibited. Smoking and vaping is also prohibited in the park. Finally, we appreciate your assistance in using recycling and trash containers. Clear Creek History Park is one of three historic properties operated by Golden History Museums, a division of the City of Golden Parks and Recreation Department. If you look north across Clear Creek you will see the Golden History Center, home to exhibits, public programs and our artifact collection. To the south at the corner of Arapahoe and 12th Streets sits the Astor House Museum, an 1867 boarding house that is listed on the National Register. It’s closed this year for historic rehabilitation but we have great things in store, so watch the progress at Facebook. com/AstorHouseMuseum. These special places are open year round and offer an array of fun, family programming. In fact, if you stop by this park next week, you’d see dozens of kids participating in Hands-on History—our highly popular summer camp for kids ages 6-11. Mark your calendars to return for other great Golden History Museums events. Join us on July 9 for our free Homesteaders’ Day—the first of four this year. Costumed interpreters will be stationed throughout Clear Creek History Park helping visitors learn about blacksmithing, woodstove cooking, and more. We will even have some animals on hand to enrich the experience beyond our always popular chicken yard. For a full list of events, visit GoldenHistory.org/events. This event would not be possible without the support of our sponsors, partners, and advertisers. A big thank you to the City of Golden, MillerCoors, AC Golden Brewing Company, Colorado Community Media, 1 Stop Printing, Golden Well Being Collective and Yoga, Golden Lions, Visit Golden, and SCFD. Also many thanks to our tremendous volunteers and the critically important Friends of Golden History Museums.

Fresh off the success of their ﬁrst album, and taking ﬁrst place in Rockygrass’ Best New Band Competition, Colorado natives, The Railsplitters got busy touring the US, meeting wider audiences, and of course, spending hours in the tour van! As you can imagine from ﬁve members traveling across the United States, the musical array pouring out of the van onto the open highway was wildly eclectic, crossing over genre and time. From boundary breaking trip hop and electronica groups like Gorillaz and Thievery Corporation, to more direct inﬂuences like The Infamous Stringdusters and Lake Street Dive, the musical potpourri heard in their time on the road eventually began to seep into the band’s own music. With their new album, The Faster It Goes, they’re using these new sounds to break the bonds of bluegrass and unleash tradition. Lauren Stovall and the rest of the ‘Splitters suggest that using your roots to evolve is really at the heart of the genre, not unlike Bill Monroe, who himself was an innovator. With their ﬁnger on the pulse, The Railsplitters are pushing the genre forward with an advencontinued on next page
Golden Music Festival 2016 Railsplitters continued turous spirit, carrying in the tradition of breaking boundaries with their innovative sound. The Railsplitters’ secret weapon is twofold: ﬁrst, the innovative imagination of banjo player Dusty Rider’s songwriting, who writes with the full band in mind, imagining an entire song in his head before it’s even heard it out loud. Second, the powerfully distinct vocals of Lauren Stovall whose voice is as clean as Emmylou, as cutting as Allison Krauss, and carrying some of the attitude of Dolly herself. Lauren’s vocal lines ﬁll The Railsplitters’ sound with something distinct and undeniable. In addition, part of The Railsplitters’ new color is brought on by the band’s newest member, Christine King, whose superb ﬁddling adds a driving force to the band’s sound. With masterfully executed mandolin and banjo by Peter Sharpe and Dusty Rider, and well supported by upright bassist Leslie Ziegler’s innovative style, The Faster It Goes testiﬁes to The Railsplitters’ multipolar and collaborative songwriting, giving voice to the impressive talents of its members and a cohesive character to the sound. From the ﬁrst track, “Tilt-A-Whirl,” it’s clear the The Faster It Goes is exploring modern speeds: “My mind is like an old Tilt-A-Whirl, it never seems to stop, not even for this girl.” With the foot-stomping drive of a reworked traditional tune like, “Salt Salt Sea,” or the complex harmony and aggressive rhythms in “It’s A Little Late,” The Railsplitters are trying to keep up with life, the faster, and faster it goes. While these songs pack an edge and highlight the band’s progression into more popinﬂuenced numbers, The Railsplitters know that life isn’t only lived in the fast lane, taking a few moments to unwind with earthy tracks like “The Estuary,” which pays tribute to their musical mountain roots, and the album’s hidden track, “Sweet Little Miss Blue Eyes.” Though they operate with the instrumentation of a bluegrass band, The Railsplitters are making music totally unlimited by tradition. This is music for the open road, the open dance ﬂoor, and open ears--music of the American West, made for all. -Mindie Lind, Hearth Music
Wood & Wire
As its name suggests, Wood & Wire is a young acoustic band with a love for pure music played well. In 2011, the group exploded onto Austin’s bluegrass and old-time-music scene while quickly gaining a national fan base through appearances at notable festivals and venues like Old Settlers Music Festival, Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival, Austin City Limits Music Festival, and the IBMA World of Bluegrass. It was icing on the cake, then, when they also garnered a last-minute appearance onstage at The Telluride Bluegrass Festival. In 2013, Wood & Wire opened for Yonder Mountain String Band and released a self-titled debut album to much acclaim. In 2014, the group continued gaining momentum, touring heavily and working on a follow-up album set for release February 3, 2015. A culmination of distinct musical personalities, the band’s inﬂuences range from Led Zeppelin to Doc Watson – and everything in between. “We’re from all over the country,” says Bassist Dom Fisher, describing the resulting sound as “strongly rooted in traditional bluegrass, with elements of progressive grass such as modern harmony and song forms.” Fisher, a New York native with a degree in Jazz Studies (Double Bass) from Ithaca College, formed the group along with Guitarist Tony Kamel, whose rich, continued on next page
Golden Music Festival 2016 Wood & Wire continued textured vocals provide lead for the group. In 2012, the two added banjoist Trevor Smith, which, says Fisher, “really put us on a different level.” Smith, who had been playing music with Fisher, Kamel and other local musicians at a weekly bluegrass jam at Austin’s Flipnotics, actually grew up playing classical piano. After attending his ﬁrst bluegrass festival, he picked up his main instrument, the banjo. “I was perplexed by the sound of it, and I had to ﬁgure it out,” says Smith, who later added guitar and mandolin to his talents. Wood & Wire rounded out the quartet last May with the addition of mandolinist Billy Bright, a veteran player who has worked with legendary artists Peter Rowan, Tony Rice, and Vassar Clements. A Berklee College of Music attendee, Bright adorns the music with his unique style bred from inﬂuences like Matt Mundy, David Grisman, Mike Compton and “every other mandolinist I’ve ever seen or heard.” For its second album, The Coast, Wood & Wire returned to J Studios in Nashville to work with Grammy-nominated engineer and producer, Erick Jaskowiak. “He is an amazing guy, chock full of positive vibes and so good at what he does,” says Kamel. A coming-of-age collection of original songs with a coastal theme, the album builds on the band’s debut, entertaining fans while drawing back the curtain on members’ substantial musical chops. In the studio and on the stage, Wood & Wire continues to share its passion for pure music through heartfelt performances across the country.

Thunder and Rain Thunder and Rain is a bluegrass and country band from Golden, CO. They released their debut album Holler Out in 2015 and have since been touring and introducing their music to fans all over the United States. They will be releasing the Run With You EP in the summer of 2016 in anticipation of their sophomore album coming this winter. Originally started in 2013 as the duet of Erinn Peet-Lukes (Guitar) and Pete Weber (Mandolin), the band now includes two Wisconsin natives, Ian Haegele (Bass) and Rachel Reichert (Fiddle). With the use of bluegrass instruments and Erinnâ€™s powerful vocals, the band has captured a sound that accentuates their talents and is accessible to fans both young and old. Thunder and Rainâ€™s depth and unforgettable melodies are putting meaning back into modern country music.

Jeff Scroggins & Colorado Jeff Scroggins & Colorado is a high-energy ﬁve-piece bluegrass band located in the Western Frontier state of Colorado. Their distinctive sound showcases an eclectic range of inﬂuences that marry second and third generation bluegrass, delivering a unique experience that captivates audiences and keeps them guessing: It’s a powerful, high mountain “bluegrass explosion” that features world-class banjo and mandolin playing, incredible vocals, a solid and energetic rhythm and an easy stage banter that has delighted listeners all over the world. Fronted by internationally acclaimed two-time National Banjo Champion Jeff Scroggins, their distinct style is immediately recognizable due to Jeff’s unique and diverse range of inﬂuences, which include Alan Munde, Don Reno, Jimmy Page and Eric Clapton. His ﬁery style and lightning-fast licks have earned him worldwide recognition and have left many a ﬁrst-time listener in stunned disbelief! The band also features the award-winning mandolin playing of Jeff’s son Tristan Scroggins. At only 20 years old, Tristan is an award-winning instrumentalist and accomplished songwriter in his own right while the instrumentals he shares

Golden Music Festival 2016 Scroggins continued with Jeff play a large role in the band’s unique and energetic style. West Virginia native Greg Blake provides powerful bluegrass vocals steeped in country heritage, bringing a truly authentic sound developed from a lifetime of singing bluegrass, gospel, and country. Twice nominated for SPBGMA’s “Traditional Male Vocalist of the Year” award, Greg’s phenomenal guitar playing has earned him nine nominations and ﬁve consecutive wins as SPBGMA’s Guitarist of the Year. They are joined by Oregon native and festival favorite Ellie Hakanson on ﬁddle and vocals as well as champion multi-instrumentalist and veteran musician Isaac Calender on bass. In addition to their individual accomplishments, the band was featured as one of No Depression Magazine’s “Six New Discoveries”, standing alongside established greats that include Bela Fleck, Abigail Washburn, and Danny Paisley.

Front Country What started as a reluctant band of some of the hottest young pickers in the SF Bay Area has transformed into a hard-touring powerhouse Roots-Pop ensemble that is stretching the boundaries of Bluegrass and Americana until they break. Lead singer, Melody Walker, is a force of nature onstage, wrapping audiences around her big bluesy vocals and extemporaneous undulations until they scream for more. Along with mandolinist Adam Roszkiewicz, guitarist Jacob Groopman, violinist Leif Karlstrom and bassist Jeremy Darrow, Front Country uses every inch of it’s stringband instrumentation to explore textures and dynamics from chamber folk to rock and roll, with earnest, open harmonies that have been called “passionately intoxicating”. Their original songwriting and handselected covers lean toward a bold pop and rock perspective that is unique in the roots music realm. After winning the Telluride and RockyGrass band contests in 2013, and releasing their ﬁrst album “Sake of the Sound” in 2014, Front Country decided to take its potential to the next level, becoming a full-time band and playing over 120 shows and festivals in 2015. Highlights in 2015 year included Grey Fox, MerleFest, Strawberry, Bluegrass Underground and a ﬁrst UK

Golden Music Festival 2016 Front Country continued Tour, as well as sharing the stage with the Steep Canyon Rangers, Travelin’ McCourys and the Hard Working Americans. Heading into 2016, the band opened for Leftover Salmon for two nights before embarking on an extensive winter tour that saw then headlining the Anchorage Folk Fest in Alaska and the Winter Village festival in Ithaca along with appearances at Big Sky Big Grass in Montana and the Mid Winter Bluegrass Festival in Denver. They ended the tour with an ofﬁcial showcase at Folk Alliance international in Kansas City before their ﬁrst string of shows in the Southwest including packed shows in Tucson and Phoenix. The spring will see the band hit markets in California and do a run of shows in the Northwest supporting jamgrass veterans Hot Buttered Rum. In May Front Country will make their debut at the Fillmore in San Francisco. In addition to this busy schedule Front Country will also release an EP of cover songs and begin working on their next full length record slated for release in early 2017.

Running Out Of Road The band Running Out Of Road is an unbiased sampling of the demographics of their home town: Durango, Colorado-- a small western town full of active and engaging people of all age groups. Durango’s residents show a greater than average proclivity for doing things out-of-doors—a commonality that ﬁgures heavily into what bonds this band together. It is the pride of representing this small town tucked away in America’s southwest, with its dazzling, multi-hued landscape, that provides the desire to write and arrange original material. The depth and meaningful nature of the songwriting can, in part, be attributed to the fact that every member in the band is or has been an educator. The ability to hold an audience and explore a subject from both a literary and historical perspective is not lost on the fans of this entertaining bluegrass group. The collection of songs on Running Out Of Road’s ﬁrst CD reﬂect the ideals and notions of life in a small western town. The mystique of the old west with its swift justice, the survivalist culture of the “new” west, or historical tragedies in the mines of Colorado’s mighty San Juan Mountains all make for riveting subject matter and refreshing instrumental arrangements.

Timber! Timber!, a highly energetic bluegrass band from Boulder, CO, consists of Travis “Watermelon Hat Guy” on bass, Erik “Ginger McGee” Gustafson on guitar, Caitlin “Thanks, I like to play” Anderson on ﬁddle, and Chad “Sweet Hair” Martens on mandolin. “We had nothing in common but the desire to play music, preferably in exchange for beer and whiskey. Oh and the fact that we all lived in Boulder.” -Caitlin Anderson In the Spring of 2013, an unlikely trio decided to form a band. They were together at the Twisted Pine bluegrass pick and Travis Lawson stood with his bass and told Erik Gustafson, guitar player, that the best way to meet the ladies was to be in a band. And therefore the notion was born. Upon further discussion Travis suggested they add a ﬁddle player, and James agreed that “What’s her face” could make a positive addition. Thus Caitlin Anderson, ﬁddle player, was invited to Timber!
continued on next page
Golden Music Festival 2016 Timber! continued While each member of Timber! had very different musical backgrounds, they found that they truly enjoyed the combination. Erik’s songwriting and more jamgrassy history opened them to another style of song. Caitlin added a classical element, and tried to stop calling her ﬁddle a violin, and Travis brought pure style. They began performing around Boulder, mostly at BBQ venues, and built a strong repertoire. However one thing was missing. A mandolin! Luckily, they convinced their friend Chad Martens to join the band, and then Timber! was ﬁve. With this combination of bass, guitar, banjo, mandolin, and ﬁddle, Timber! now plays everything from BBQ joints to breweries to beer festivals around the greater Boulder and Denver area. They have a propensity for fastass bluegrass and almost unnatural amounts of energy that will be sure to have you dancin’ everywhere.

Ragged Union An intimacy and tightness surrounding the vocals, award-winning instrumental work, a powerful rhythmic drive, up tempo arrangements, and edgy, outsider songwriting - these are the marks of the Boulder-based original bluegrass band Ragged Union. Their harddriving bluegrass, with a tinge of the traditional and a healthy dose of the blues, has become a favorite for quite a few music lovers since their inception a few years ago. The music coming from this sixpiece ensemble, led by husband and wife Geoff and Christina Union, is memorable and provides a platform for some of Colorado’s ﬁnest players - Jordan Ramsey, Chris Elliott, Justin Hoffenberg, and Mike Sivcovich, performing original tunes and off-the-beaten path standards. Dry Branch Fire Squad’s Ron Thomason sums it up, saying Ragged Union’s music is “...entirely different than how bluegrass music has been ‘updated’ to date. It is beyond appropriate; it is fresh and innovative while preserving through their instruments the things one likes about bluegrass music.” raggedunionbluegrass.com

About Us Golden History Museums offers visitors fun, participatory experiences about the exciting history of Golden. The Astor House, a former hotel and boarding house, offers a glimpse of life at the frenetic turn of the 20th century when Golden was a bustling supply town and trade center. Establishments like the Astor House were an important fixture in Golden where transients and passers-through outnumbered residents nearly four to one. Though it is closed throughout 2016 for rehabilitation, the future promises many exciting changes. Clear Creek History Park recreates 1880s ranch life with authentic, local, historic buildings. Stroll through this park and imagine yourself growing potatoes or raising chickens as part of a homesteading family. Peek through the windows of the cabins and see other buildings from the Pearce Ranch like the barn, chicken coop and two-seat outhouse. The Golden History Center features a variety of exhibits about Golden’s past. It also boasts one of the finest collections of Coors Porcelain in the country, fun Jolly Rancher memorabilia, the interactive Made in Golden exhibit, and a wealth of artifacts that tell the story of our city from its founding to present day. We encourage you to explore and enjoy each of our venues. You’ll find that GHM offers something for everyone in your family and is a place you can visit and share with friends and family time and again. Visit GoldenHistory.org.
