Tiny Library Concert: Rapidgrass

May 26, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Rapidgrass is high-energy, fusion string-band hailing from Colorado. In 2015, they blew the socks off the audience at the annual RockyGrass Festival, taking first prize in the 2015 RockyGrass Band Competition. The quintet features world-class bluegrass musicians from the Front Range, including Mark Morris (guitar/vocals), an Icelantic-sponsored skier and flat-picker who has toured extensively for the past decade as a member of the Hickory Project; Kyle James Hauser (banjo/vocals), whose songs have appeared in film and television and whose latest album was #1 on Colorado’s OpenAir for 3 weeks and voted as a Top Ten local album of 2014 by Colorado Public Radio listeners; Alex Johnstone (mandolin/vocals), a veteran of Rebel Record’s Spring Creek; Coleman Smith (violin), a 5-time winner of the Bob Wills Fiddle Competition; and Carl Meinecke (bass), who has supported Drew Emmitt and played in orchestras, quartets, and jazz ensembles nationally. Rapidgrass Quintet released their second album, Crooked Road, in 2015.
