Opening the show is the Martin Gilmore Trio – with Martin on guitar, Nick Amodeo on mandolin and Ian Haegele on bass. Martin Gilmore isn’t afraid to explore genres. As a multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter, he brings a lot of music to life. Throughout his sound, there a common thread of American music – folk, bluegrass, country, swing and jazz. Martin Gilmore is a noted solo performer and has just returned from two years living in Cairo, Egypt.

Martin Gilmore TrioMartin Gilmore has performed all over the United States, as well as in Europe and Africa. He has shared the stage with members of Hot Rize, Uncle Earl, The Infamous Stringdusters, The Nashville Bluegrass Band and many more. In August of 2017 he opened two shows for Stephen Stills and Judy Collins. Martin was a founding member of the award-winning bluegrass band Long Road Home, as well as the vintage Honky-Tonk band "The Semaphores". He is also a well-known music educator teaching at Swallow Hill Music Association, The Olde Town Pickin' Parlor and his own private studio. In 2017, he joined faculty at the University of Northern Colorado teaching bluegrass guitar.

Wood BellyBluegrass has become a mainstay in Colorado. The music of the mountains speaks to us and we can feel it in our souls. When a band like Wood Belly comes along to channel it, the sky is the limit. Led by a pair of prolific songwriters, their songs are carefully and collectively crafted to ring out with honesty and passion. Wood Belly blends traditional bluegrass with modern songwriting and whether you’re spinning your partner around or hanging on every word, the result is the same. You’re left smiling and wanting more. This past year was very exciting, as the group released their debut album, “Solid Ground” and won the prestigious 2018 Telluride Bluegrass Festival band competition.

Wood Belly was born when Chris Weist (Mandolin) met Craig Patterson (Guitar) and Chris Zink (Dobro) at the Rockygrass Festival in 2015. Within a year, they had teamed up with Aaron McCloskey (Banjo) and Taylor Shuck (Bass) and the music immediately fell into place. Since then the band has played at an ever-expanding list of great venues including the Mishawaka Amphitheater, the Fox Theater (Boulder), and Cervantes (Denver). They’ve also played main stage sets at Rapidgrass, the Durango Bluegrass Meltdown, the Keystone Bluegrass and Beer Festival, The Wyoming State Bluegrass and BBQ festival, Snowygrass, Grapes and Grass, and more.
