Bluegrass Music Photos
I always thought that in order to be infamous, you had to be bad. But The Infamous Stringdusters are anything but. Their unique take on Bluegrass/Americana has led them to actual fame, which has in turn led them to Beartrap Summer Festival 2012. We're glad about that. Check out these pics from their set.
I have a thing for girls in bands. I have no idea why. There is just something about a girl in a band that makes me dizzy. Bonus points if she's actually talented. So imagine my delight when Screen Door Porch took the stage and I heard one of the most beautiful voices I've ever heard in my life. Check out these pics from the set of my new favorite band.
Beartrap Summer Festival 2012 is in full swing here on Casper Mountain and we are rocking and rolling to the tunes of Town Mountain. The sun is shining, the birds are chirping, the coffee is flowing (thank God), and the music of this awesome band is blaring. Town Mountain encompasses everything we love about bluegrass- guitars, banjos, fiddles and more- this band has it all. Check out these pics from Sunday's opening band at Beartrap Summer Festival 2012.
As if two days of live music weren't enough, the folks who are bringing you Beartrap Summer Festival 2012 decided that you deserved a little extra. Because of this, they decided to put on their 2nd Annual Down From The Mountain show at The Attic. This year, Casper's own Dang Ol' Boys performed alongside Halden Wofford and the Hi Beams(who played earlier in the day at Beartrap)to a raucous crowd.
The Marshall Tucker Band are living legends. There's no simpler way to put it. These 40+ year veterans of the bluegrass scene exude confidence with every note they sing/play. They are pros in ever sense of the word. Now, after recently playing at the Grand Ole Opry, MTB is headling Beartrap Summer Festival 2012. Quite frankly, they proved exactly why they should be headlining this stage. The guys are amazing. They have a jazz flute! A freaking jazz flute! Here are some pics from the set.
I think my favorite state for bands is Colorado. Some of the greatest bands I've ever heard have come from the Rocky Mountains. Halden Wofford and the Hi Beams is a perfect example of this. This band blends honky tonk, rock and bluegrass seamlessly and the best part about them is that they really seem to have fun when they're playing. Oh! Also, they yodel. Any band that yodels is ok with me.
The 23 String Band took to the Beartrap stage on Saturday and they left the crowd in amazement, with jaws dropped and feet still tappin'. The boys of bluegrass mixed folk and rock and yes, bluegrass, to create a goulash of awesomeness. The only bad thing about their performance was that it ended. Here are some photos from their amazing set.
When 10 Mile Tide took to the stage at Beartrap Summer Festival 2012, fest-goers held their breath in anticipation. Then the band from sunny San Francisco played their first song, and they all breathed a sigh, not of relief, but of awe. 10 Mile Tide wowed the crowd with their own special version of "feel-good muppet-funk" and they will not be soon forgotten. Check out these pics from their set.
