Blue Canyon Boys
The Blue Canyon Boys are a premier bluegrass band of the Rocky Mountains and winners of the 2008 Telluride Bluegrass festival band contest. They have performed across the country and were selected to represent the United States and bluegrass music at the 14th annual Rainforest World Music Festival in Sarawak, Malaysia, which has consistently been rated in the top 25 International Festivals by Songlines Magazine. This bluegrass powerhouse consists of Gary Dark on mandolin, Jason Hicks on guitar, Drew Garrett on bass, and award-winning Chris Elliott on banjo. Blending an array of incredible vocal styles from the brother duet to four part gospel harmony along with hard-driving instrumental proficiency, this energetic band has created an infectious brew of Colorado bluegrass. With four CDs garnering heavy airplay across the country and around the world, the Blue Canyon Boys have become one of Colorado’s most celebrated bluegrass bands.
