Thursday, July 6 – Head for the Hills* (Presented by Slow Groovin BBQ & JAS Aspen Snowmass)
They didn’t grow up immersed in bluegrass music but came to it later in life, with each other. The result is a sound based in bluegrass that reaches into indie rock, jazz, hip hop, world and folk to stitch together fresh songs that bridge the divide between past and future acoustic music.
Saturday, July 15 – Deaf Camp Benefit – Lukas Nelson & The Promise of The Real (Presented by Aspen Camp & JAS Aspen Snowmass)

Thursday, July 20 – New Orleans Suspects* (Presented by JAS Aspen Snowmass)
When the New Orleans Suspects arose from the primordial musical soup that is New Orleans, they were a fill-in band and an occasional jam band at their neighborhood Maple Leaf Bar. The group brought together some of the best, most highly respected players in New Orleans including Jake Eckert, Jeff Watkins, CR Gruver “Mean” Willie Green on drums, and Reggie Scanlan. New Orleans Suspects have exceeded all expectations and some five years from formation, they have delivered their fourth album release, Kaleidoscoped.

Thursday, August 10 – Sundy Best* (Presented by Snowmass Tourism)
People just getting their first taste of Sundy Best over the past couple of years might have chosen to look simply at the form the band took — Jamerson on an acoustic guitar, Bentley on a cajón drum — and overlook the function the sparseness served, delivering raw, yet powerful down-home sonics merged with the childhood friends’ intertwining vocals.
Thursday, August 17 – Otis Taylor Band* (Presented by Snowmass Tourism)
Part of Taylor’s appeal is his contrasting character traits. But it is precisely this element of surprise that makes him one of the most compelling artists to emerge in recent years. In fact, Guitar Player magazine writes, “Otis Taylor is arguably the most relevant blues artist of our time.”
