Wood Belly

Wood Belly

Wood Belly

    Bluegrass 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.  2018 has been an exciting year as the group released their debut album, “Solid Ground” and won the prestigious 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).  Their festival resume includes the Telluride Bluegrass Festival, Rapidgrass, the Durango Bluegrass Meltdown, the Keystone Bluegrass and Beer Festival, The Wyoming State Bluegrass and BBQ festival, Snowygrass, Grapes and Grass, and more.

Blue Canyon Boys

Blue Canyon Boys

Blue Canyon Boys

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.


    Ever since founding members Jason Hicks and Gary Dark launched the Blue Canyon Boys in 2006, the Blue Canyon Boys have raised the bar for bluegrass bands. They bring it all: seamless brother-duet style, crisp instrumentation, unvarnished lyrics and subversive humor. After winning first place 2008 Telluride Bluegrass festival band contest, the Blue Canyon Boys went off at full tilt, taking the bluegrass circuit by storm, performing in illustrious venues across the country as well as internationally.
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—the rare confluence of harmony that leaves the soul ajar.


    The seasoned quartet features Gary Dark on mandolin, Jason Hicks on guitar, Drew Garrett on bass, and Zach Daniels on banjo. Their latest album, eponymously called The Blue Canyon Boys, is perhaps their most polished and poignant yet. Classic bluegrass, clean and raw, blends effortlessly with the band’s homegrown compositions, then peppered with a judicious cover or two, such as the band’s riveting take on Pink Floyd’s “Time.”
Whether calling on their old timey musical roots or reconnoitering the future, the band’s musical prowess never wavers. This is high lonesome sound at its best: a driving pulse that weaves through harmonies and fierce rhythms, always with the reminder that as long as the music plays we are never quite alone.

Quinlan Valdez at Stogie Joe's

Born and raised in Casper, Wyoming, Quinlan Valdez’s musical life began in 2010 when he first saw Jalan Crossland perform a show for Casper’s ArtCore program. The show gave enough inspiration to learn the banjo and guitar. Since learning the two instruments Quinlan has been writing his own songs. Listeners claim his style to the likes of Bob Dylan, Neil Young, and Townes Van Zandt.

Since 2018, Valdez has been playing in local coffee shops, restaurants, and even large popular venues in and around Wyoming. With deep songs of life experiences in a relaxing tone. A few fellow musicians and fans of Quinlan’s works will claim poetry, not songs. It is a compliment he hears often but still struggles to believe it. In the end he only wants to play music.

Body & Mind Wellness Workshop

Body & Mind Wellness Workshop

Tuesday, August 6, 2019 at 7 PM – 8 PM

I invite you to join me for a Body & Mind Wellness Workshop on Tuesday, August 6th at 7 pm, at the Studio at Cloud Peak Chiropractic & Wellness.

First I will cover two topics: Neuroscience & Your Brain, and Your Hormonal/Moon Cycle and ways to reconnect your brain & emotional world. At the end of the workshop, I will do a short introduction to meditation and follow it with a guided meditation.

Knowing how your brain works can empower you to improve your life and have more control of your inner world. As we women shift through monthly cycles (and later in life our body still follows the moon cycle), so does our emotional world.

The more aware we are of how our body & brain works the better life we can lead!

Join me for a fun evening, discovering your pathway towards emotional wholeness!

-Agnese Gorham

Lacy Nelson at Washakie County Fair

Saturday, August 3, 2019 at 9:00 PM

Lacy is 22 years old, and the daughter of 4th generation ranchers south of Ten Sleep, Wyoming. Musical from a young age, Lacy took piano lessons from age 5 through middle school. It was soon obvious that she was more interested in creating her own songs than learning music written by someone else, and she spent many hours writing and playing at her mother’s piano. Leaving for college meant that she had to leave her piano behind, so Lacy picked up her brother’s guitar and began to teach herself. After graduating from Sheridan College with degrees in Rangeland Management and Agriculture Education, Lacy returned to her family’s ranch where she lived until her recent move to Spearfish, South Dakota.

Her professional music career is quickly expanding and providing exciting opportunities. Lacy placed 3rd in the 2018 Wyoming Singer-Songwriter competition with songs that will be featured on a compilation CD from the competition and on her upcoming album. She recorded nine original songs at the Roman Theater in Red Lodge for her self-titled album being released May 25th, and is set to perform at the Red Lodge Songwriters Festival, Nowoodstock, the Gardiner Original Music Showcase, and various other music festivals around Montana, South Dakota and Wyoming this summer.
