News for December 

            Hey Y’all! Hope everyone’s well and getting happy for the holidays. Here’s some recent stuff we’re excited about in Ragged Union Bluegrass Land…. 
           
            We have two upcoming Denver shows this month (see schedule), including a New Year’s Eve party at STEM CIDER’S (2811 Walnut ST Denver). Stem Cider’s is a great new joint in the warehouse district where they brew their own fantastic line of cider I they even have one called, “Banjo”. How’s that for a bluegrass New Years?
 
            In other festival news, we’ll be playing a set at the first annual “UllrGrass” festival, in Golden, alongside Peter Rowan, Head for the Hills, and the Infamous Stringdusters.
We’re also very excited to announce we’ve been invited to appear at the 5th annual JOHN HARTFORD MEMORIAL FESTIVAL at Bean Blossom, Indiana, May 28th-31st. We’ll get to perform on the historic stage where Bill Monroe started his Bluegrass Festival so long ago, where all the bluegrass greats have played and sang. Also appearing will be the likes of Hot Rize, New Riders of the Purple Sage, Larry Keel, our buddies Wood and Wire, and moany more. Check out this special festival online at: johnhartfordmemfest.com. Tickets are on sale now.
 
            We’re also happy as heck to announce we’ve added Andrew Bonnis to our lineup on upright bass. Andrew has been playing professionally since the age of 14, and has been a highly sought-after bassist on the broader Colorado scene for several years. He’s one heck of a talented cat and we’re excited to have him on board to help us reach some new musical heights!
 
            As always, visit our Facebook page for more updates, give us a like if you haven’t already, and stay tuned for that elusive Ragged Union debut album, “Hard Row to Hoe”, still in progress but in the final stretch!
 
Cheers Y’all!
Geoff
