Grammy Award winning multi-instrumentalist Sam Bush is alternately known as the King of Telluride and the King of Newgrass. Bush has been honored by the Americana Music Association and the IBMA, and he has helped to expand the horizons of bluegrass music, fusing it with jazz, rock, blues, funk and other styles. He is the co-founder of the genre-bending New Grass Revival and an in-demand musician who has played with everyone from Emmylou Harris and Bela Fleck to Charlie Haden, Lyle Lovett and Garth Brooks, as well as Bill Monroe, Doc Watson, and Earl Scruggs. Though Bush is best known for jaw-dropping skills on the mandolin, he is also Grammy award winning vocalist. His new album, Circles Around Me, features some classic bluegrass numbers and several high-energy jams that Bush has made his trademark sound.

Bearfoot’s rise from incredibly talented music camp counselors in their home state of Alaska to an established national touring band has been meteoric. A crowd favorite, these Telluride Bluegrass Band Champions are often compared to artists like Nickel Creek. Switching easily between airy Northern ballads and back-alley Southern blues, their music is underscored with bluegrass passion. They bring a remarkable breadth of rich, original songs to the stage, and their arrangements are fiery and inventive, with inspiring harmonies tying them together. The group has been received enthusiastically at MerleFest and PineCone’s own 25th Anniversary concert in January, and PineCone is thrilled to have them grace our stage again this season.
