Jeremy Garrett
Jeremy Garrett
Jeremy Garrett is known as an innovative fiddle player, expressive singer and creative songwriter in the GRAMMY Award-winning band, The Infamous Stringdusters, who broke onto the national scene in 2007, scooping up 3 International Bluegrass Music Association awards, including Album and Song of the Year. Since then, the group has become a national ambassador for progressive bluegrass, playing to club, theater and festival audiences around the country, and have hosted their own event, The Festy Experience—at which Jeremy’s production, the Garrett Grass Gospel Hour, offers a much-beloved highlight.

To fans of the Grammy-nominated “‘dusters,” he’s known as “G-Grass” or “Freedom Cobra” for his dynamic stage presence, but to his fellow artists and growing fan base, there’s another side, where songwriting and more intimate performances come to the fore. He has contributed several songs to the Stringdusters, including the title track for their 2014 album “Let It Go”, winning first place in the Folk category for the 2014 USA Songwriting Competition. His collaborations with other songwriters include Jon Weisberger, Josh Shilling, Becky Buller, Darrell Scott, John Pennell, and more.

Jeremy is a diverse entertainer performing in all-star line-ups and as a solo artist. Recently Jeremy has shifted his attention to a more intimate show highlighting his catalog of originally crafted songs accompanying him self on guitar, fiddle and mandolin. Jeremy likes to energize these intimate shows by weaving in hints of his fiddle science project, experimenting with electronic sound effects.

The Sweet Lillies
The Sweet Lillies
The Sweet Lillies’ high-energy, melodic tunes have quickly captured the hearts of fans in Colorado and beyond. The band, formed in November of 2013, credits its appeal to the original and compelling songwriting of three women who share an unwavering commitment to life on the road. The magnetic combination of Julie Gussaroff on the upright bass, Becca Bisque on the viola, and Melly Frances on percussion and lead vocals – together with powerful three-part female harmony and a cast of exciting instrumentalists – gives this band a rare and alluring sound. As testament to their appeal, The Sweet Lillies have already shared the stage with the likes of Peter Rowan, Vince Herman of Leftover Salmon, Kyle Hollingsworth of The String Cheese Incident, and Andy Hall of The Infamous String Dusters, Jeff Austin, and Bridget Law (founding member of Elephant Revival). Based out of Colorado’s Front Range, The Sweet Lillies are continually expanding their audience and reach with a contagious love of music and a get-up-and-dance attitude that spreads lots of love and smiles.
