High Lonesome at The Velvet Elk Lounge

July 5 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm MDT

Combining a pleasing mash of mandolin, dobro, fiddle, guitar, and bass, High Lonesome, seeks to put a new spin on good old hard-driving bluegrass by way of tight harmonies, melodic original material, and an expansive reach that takes in music from various realms, including jazz and jam influences as well as traditional bluegrass. This year High Lonesome was named in Denver Westword’s – “Ten of the Top Colorado Bluegrass Bands”’ list along with some of their musical influences Infamous Stringdusters and Hot Rize and will be releasing their long anticipated debut album this fall. “With its three-part harmonies and precise instrumental solos, High Lonesome’s sound clearly owes as much to folk, rock and blues as it does to the Stanley Brothers.” – John Lehndorff, Boulder Weekly

Bar opens at 5 PM and happy hour from open to 7 PM. (21+) The Velvet Elk Lounge does not allow minors – No Exceptions.
