Sherbino Theater presents Meadow Mountain Bluegrass Show on January 18
Sherbino Theater is excited to present Meadow Mountain on January 18. Among the young band’s many accolades, Meadow Mountain has given a TED talk, performed at Greyfox Bluegrass’s Emerging Artist series, hosted Denver’s only performance-oriented bluegrass jam, opened for Sam Bush, Del McCoury, and other titans of the genre, and are looking at a very exciting 2019.

Meadow Mountain, comprised of Summers Baker (guitar), Jack Dunlevie (mandolin), Ian Parker (violin/ viola), George Guthrie (banjo), and Wilson Luallen (bass) are a band in the true sense of the word: a whole larger than the sum of its parts. Their music plays to each members’ individual strengths, and the finished product is a style of music rooted in traditional, hard-driving bluegrass.

“In a world of constant string band evolution, Meadow Mountain has distinct ties to all the best elements of bluegrass, which really makes them stand out from their peers,” Pandolfi says of the band, “They combine that with really strong songwriting chops to create a unique sound that fans of acoustic music will surely gravitate toward.”  

Drawing inspiration from bands like The Punch Brothers, Del McCoury, Bela Fleck, and Sam Bush, the band initially formed over a mutual love for traditional and progressive bluegrass music. After only a year of performing together, the group was hired for a stint as the house band aboard a Norwegian cruise ship. Thirty gigsin 30 days on board the ship allowed them to hone their skills, and served as a propellent for their ability to play to each other’s strengths. After returning home, their tightened sound positioned Meadow Mountain as one of the premier voices in Colorado bluegrass scene. In 2017, the band solidified their reputation in the bluegrass music, taking home 1st place in the prestigious RockyGrass band competition — and in turn, securing a spot on the 2018 lineup where they were met with overwhelming approval.  

 
“This is a band who in the next year will be headlining festival, so this a unique opportunity to see them in a smaller and more intimate venue,” says theater program director Trisha Oakland.
 
Meadow Mountain will play January 18 with doors at 7:00 pm and music beginning at 7:30 pm. Tickets are $12 in advance and $15 at the door. More information and tickets are available at sherbino.org or by calling (970) 318-0150.
