The Blue Canyon Boys are high octane Colorado bluegrass.
The Blue Canyon Boys are equal parts purists and innovators when it comes to bluegrass: they stay true to the form’s roots while constantly reimagining their relationship to tradition. The result is a toe-tapping mix of haunting standards, genre-bending arrangements, and catchy original numbers, all built on the bedrock of their collective bluegrass mastery.
This seasoned quartet, featuring Gary Dark on mandolin, Jason Hicks on guitar, Drew Garrett on bass, and Chris Roszell on banjo, bring it all. Seamless duet-style harmonies, full-on gospel quartet acapella harmony, crisp instrumentation, unvarnished lyrics and subversive humor. Their distinctive sound, honed from over a decade of performing together, moves easily from instrumental wizardry to playful ribbing. Ultimately and repeatedly, they hit a high note, from Borneo to Alberta; Costa Rica to Connecticut; it’s a rare confluence of harmony that leaves the soul ajar.
