Tuesday Tunes: Meadow Mountain
July 10 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The Front Porch, in partnership with James Monroe’s Highland, will host the 4th annual Tuesday Tunes, a three-part series of sunset concerts at the home of President James Monroe. These performances are a perfect opportunity to bring the family out with blanket and chairs in tow to enjoy music from Virginia and the mid-Atlantic region! Tuesday Tunes is a free concert series.
For the second Tuesday Tunes of the season, come see George Guthrie’s group, Meadow Mountain.
Meadow Mountain started as a group of friends busking on the corner of the Vail farmers market, and it wasn’t long before they were playing gigs around Vail and Summit counties. They formed initially over a love of traditional and progressive bluegrass music. For the first summer of the band’s existence, they learned as much bluegrass music as they could, digging into bands like The Punch Brothers, Bluegrass Album Band, and Bela Fleck’s Drive band. It was only a year after the band formed that they were hired to be the house band aboard the cruise ship, “The Norwegian Dawn”. There, the band spent a month tightening up their sound and exploring the eastern coast of Canada. Since their return, they have become one of the premier voices in Colorado Bluegrass music. The band has given a TED talk, hosted Denver’s only performance jam, and won the prestigious Rockygrass band competition. Other notable achievements include 1st place at the 2017 Ullrgrass band competition, 3rd place at the 2017 Telluride bluegrass competition, and opening for The Del McCoury Band. They live in Denver, CO.
