Surely the band's self description as "retired mule farmers" is tongue in cheek--although a mysterious miniature stuffed mule does show up at some of their gigs. Their classification of their music as "Brew Grass" is probably more on the money. As is their description of Hagen's influences: Bluegrass, Folk, Americana, Punk, Old School Country, and Irish.

This Boulder, Colorado-based quartet describes themselves as a "traveling Gypsy family" and reviewers call them "North American roots music." But there's more to Grant Farm than meets the ear: most of the acts with whom they've shared stage space are absolutely Bluegrass (Sam Bush, Jerry Douglas, Tony Rice, et al), and the band describes their sound as "Cosmic Americana."
The 2018 Beartrap Summer Festival is set for August 4th and 5th in Beartrap Meadow on Casper Mountain. See who performing on the Hilltop National Bank stage here!
