Sweetwater String Band in the Radio Room July 13th at 7:30pm

Sweetwater String Band is cello driven "soulgrass", founded in the Eastern Sierra of California in 2008. "My hat goes off to Sweetwater String Band for finding a singular sound that seamlessly melds the sensibilities of traditional and progressive bluegrass (Shakedown News)." Their music often deals with serious issues such as mountaintop removal coal mining, workers rights, and finding middle ground in todays divided political arena. This seriousness is balanced by ghost stories, drinking songs, improvised jams, and tales from the long, lonesome road. Their new album River of Rhymes is described as: "a work of both intimacy and wide-scale, cinematic vistas…instantly likeable, a truly worthy listen. The songs are great, their playing immaculate, and their approach and subject matters fascinating.” No Depression. Tickets are $12 in advance and $15 at the door. Tickets can be purchased by calling 970-241-8801 or online here
