Jeff Scroggins & Colorado

When the Bluegrass Festival kicks off this evening with a big barbecue at the fairgrounds the first taste of music that concert-goers will hear is Jeff Scroggins and Colorado. The group will play three more times at this weekend’s performances.

From the Artist’s website:

“Jeff Scroggins and Colorado is a high energy, high mountain “bluegrass explosion,” that features the amazing banjo playing of Jeff Scroggins. Jeff’s fiery style and lightning fast licks have earned him many fans worldwide, and have left many a first time listener in stunned disbelief! It also features the award winning mandolin playing of Jeff’s son Tristan Scroggins. Tristan is also an accomplished songwriter, and his and Jeff’s original instrumentals play a large role in the band’s unique and energetic sound.

“The band also features incredible bluegrass vocals, led by the powerful voice of front man Greg Blake. Greg has twice been nominated for SPBGMA’s “Traditional Male Vocalist of the Year” award and his phenomenal bluegrass guitar playing has earned him 9 nominations and an amazing 5 consecutive wins as SPBGMA’s Guitarist of the Year! Rounding out the band with harmony vocals on fiddle is Portland, OR native, Ellie Hakanson and award winning musician on multiple instruments, Isaac Callender, playing the bass.”

Admission to the Festival is $20 per day or you can purchase a three-day pass at the gate for $60. Children under 12 get in free.

Wednesday night’s Barbecue and Bluegrass at the fairgrounds will feature Jeff Scroggins and Colorado along with performers from the bluegrass music camp. Click here to find out more about the barbecue.
