Weekend Audition: Colorado Gems-Sons and Brothers and Danielle Ate the Sandwich

Two different, but great sounds of Colorado...

Well the Mid-winter Bluegrass Festival is upon us. The fun started last night (Friday ;2/17), and continues till PM on Sunday with a great line-up of music, including Sons and Brothers, on two stages, workshops, jamming - *lots* of jamming - and all around fun.

I guess my love for the music of Sons and Brothers is no secret (I am so transparent, it's shameless); but this band from Southern Colorado is stellar. As can be heard, they can& burn on as well as share musical poetry.

Take a listen:

Sons and Brothers, "Texas Eagle" ( I am dedicating this one to Hogger extraordinaire, Hugo Lackman ♥)

"Wayfaring Stranger"

Danielle 'Ate the Sandwich' Anderson is another of Colorado's musical gems. Her music is very open, transparent and real with sparse production. Sometimes the only instrument is her ukulele. Which, incidentally, is the perfect accompaniment for her crystalline voice and enchanting and clever songs that give us a unique look at the world. Love her.

Danielle Ate the Sandwich, "Where the Good Ones Go"
