It’s a Roots Music Trifecta!
Read about our two new concerts below, but first Rocky Mountain Highway is thrilled to present an evening of rising young roots music artists at The Gold Room in downtown Colorado Springs tonight (March 2).
“Gipsy Moon is an acoustic love cannon blasting a new generation’s invitation to the dance of life. Based in the musical mecca of Colorado, this four-piece folk family has composed a collection tunes that will have you dancing, singing, and shouting right along with them…”
-Vince Herman of Leftover Salmon.
And now they are a five-piece – this band wowed the crowd opening for Elephant Revival at Stargazers Theatre at the end of 2016 and will also perform at the 9th Annual MeadowGrass Music Festival in Black Forest on Friday, May 26..
For this special evening, Gipsy Moon will be joined by the critically acclaimed Indie Americana band Mipso from Chapel HIll, North Carolina.
Dubbed “traditionalist renegades,” Mipso’s music is influenced by the contradiction of their progressive home and the surrounding rural southern landscapes. For their forthcoming album, Coming Down the Mountain, the quartet has added pedal steel, drums, banjo and keyboards – bringing Mipso’s sharp lyrics, intricate song arrangements and distinctive and stirring sound into full bloom. Produced by Bon Iver bassist Brad Cook, Mipso’s deft storytelling and smart pop melodies are vivid and rich on the band’s third release, which also features guest appearances from Andrew Marlin (Mandolin Orange) and Eric Heywood (Tift Merritt).
Denver singer-songwriter Matt Rouch will open the show with a short set at 7 pm followed by a full set from Gipsy Moon and ending with Mipso. Doors open at 6:30 pmand general admission tickets will be available at the door for $20 or you can purchase on-line now.
