FAN FAVORITE POLL – 2013 – Americana/Alt-country/bluegrass


Americana / alt-country / bluegrass = country music, roots music, American music, rural, acoustic, banjo, fiddle, steel guitar … twang – or not, hats – or not, it might rock hard (alt-country-rock) – or not.  It is what it sounds like, and we here in Colorado have some of the best in the country.  Last year the Lumineers were nominated for a Grammy Award in the Americana genre – this year, Elephant Revival broke the TOP 20 of the national Americana Music Association radio airplay charts.

  1. Blue Canyon Boys are an awesome Colorado bluegrass band out of Denver who continuously put out great tunes and delight audiences around the country. They are all outstanding musicians who know how to get a crowd up and dancing with their catchy tunes and blazing riffs and then turn around, set down those instruments and dazzle you with the sweet sounds of four part harmony gospel singing!
    These guys are serious musicians with down to earth attitudes who enjoy what they do and bring it to the table every time!

    1. The Blue Canyon Boys are the best ever. I’ve seen the crowd reaction to them numerous times including Crested Butte, CO.
