As Minturn spends the first half of December ringing in 115 years with a commemorative 15 Days of Minturn celebration, mark your calendar for an extra special evening on Saturday, December 14, 2019.
An Outdoor Winter Concert in Downtown Minturn will follow the Winter Market on Saturday, December 14 (from 3 to 5 p.m.). The bluegrass show, presented the Town of Minturn and the Minturn Community Fund, will feature the Blue Canyon Boys, a high-energy Colorado quartet. Food and beverage offerings available by Crazy Mountain Brewery, Monkshood Cellars, and Second Nature Gourmet/Baked and Loaded. This is a free show, with food and beverage proceeds benefiting the Minturn Community Fund’s community programs.
The Blue Canyon Boys are equal parts purists and innovators when it comes to bluegrass: they stay true to the form’s roots while constantly reimagining their relationship to tradition. The result is a toe-tapping mix of haunting standards, genre-bending arrangements, and catchy original numbers — all built on the bedrock of their collective bluegrass mastery.
“With their tight instrumentation and some of the very best harmony I’ve ever heard, the Blue Canyon Boys really know how to please their audiences,” said Doris Gray, President of the Colorado Bluegrass Music Society. “I’ve seen them perform several times and I’ve never been disappointed.”
The seasoned quartet features Gary Dark on mandolin, Jason Hicks on guitar, Drew Garrett on bass, and Chris Roszell on banjo. They bring it all: seamless brother-duet style, crisp instrumentation, unvarnished lyrics and subversive humor. Check out the Blue Canyon Boys live in Minturn on Saturday, December 14. The show is free and begins at 3 p.m.
