Come along with us on a picture tour of our recent expedition out to the beautiful state of Colorado, final destination... Telluride Bluegrass Festival!
We were honored to perform in the Telluride Bluegrass Band Competition where we made it to the finals and got to perform on the main stage! Congrats to the winners, the Lil' Smokies from Missoula MT, as well as the other finalists, the Lonesome Days from Denver CO, and Running Out of Road from Durango CO. All great bands, all worth checking out!
Thanks to everyone who followed us on our journey, to all the gracious hosts and kind folks we met along the way. Thanks to all the awesome bands we got to share the stage with and all the venues that were so kind to have us.
We are now back in Asheville and gearing up for some summer shows around North Carolina. Keep an eye out for news and updates as we have big things on the horizon. We will be working on new songs, planning more tours, and refining our sound more and more each day. This summer we will be experimenting with the original vision of the Collective, featuring different musicians at different shows and exploring new sonic landscapes.
We look forward to continuing to bring new and exciting music to the world of folk, bluegrass, and roots music. Thanks again to everyone who has supported us thus far, keep in touch and keep carryin' on!
