As the cold winds converge with the crisp mountain air, we find ourselves reflecting on a year of extraordinary experiences. From performing at legendary festivals such as Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival and Floydfest, to unforgettable evenings sharing the stage with the great Jerry Douglas and our friends the Steep Canyon Rangers. We are so thankful for all of the awesome fans who have opened their hearts and driven many miles to support us!!
As many of you know, last year we embarked on a journey to the mountains of Mexico to share songs, stories, and good times with the good people of Michoacan. We ate amazing food, met kind folks, and were treated with nothing but love. With the mezcal flowing and the banjo ringing, we created lifelong memories and felt at home thousands of miles from the Blue Ridge Mountains.
We are so excited to be heading back across the border this year and look forward to furthering our understanding of our neighbors to the south. Thanks to the hard work of Doug Beatty and his team, we are stoked to be a part of the Hummingbird Music Project.

We're fast approaching our 5 year mark as a band, and we can't believe how many amazing experiences we've shared with so many fabulous people. The Collective has been evolving along with our sound since day 1. Since signing with our booking agency Midwood Entertainment, we've had the pleasure of playing bigger and better shows all over the US and Canada.
With that being said, we are proud to announce that we have also signed with Mountain Song Productions out of Brevard, NC!!! Mountain Song will be managing the band and helping us build on the vision we set out to pursue half a decade ago. John Felty and his team have already begun helping us move forward and focus our abilities. With the help of Mountain Song Productions and Midwood Entertainment, we couldn't be more excited about what 2019 holds for the band!
But let's not get ahead of ourselves... we still have some wonderful shows to close out the year. Here's a look at where we'll be for the rest of 2018:
