Grant Farm Acoustic hits the Big River Music Summer Concert Series stage!!

You've seen Grant Farm conjour rainbows (seriously!) at Rhythms On the Rio in South Fork - now catch them in a special intimate acoustic setting. This is one show that will really highlight the 'house concert' vibe we achieve in the store. You won't see the band more up close and personal than this - don't miss it!!

Boulder, Colorado-based Cosmic Americana band Grant Farm has entertained a growing fan base on the nation’s club and festival scene since its founding in 2009 by vocalist and National Flatpicking Guitar Champion Tyler Grant.

Built on the fundamentals of love, family, and music, the band is a sure bet for fans of high-energy, authentic artists as diverse as Sturgill Simpson, Tedeschi Trucks Band and Phish. Comprised of zany, creative and highly musical comrades, Grant Farm members include Grant (aka “The Champ”), Adrian “Ace” Engfer (bass and vocals), Sean “Magic” Macaulay (drums) and Kevin “Money” McHugh (keyboards and vocals).

Daniel Mescher of Colorado Public Radio dubbed Grant Farm “some of the ablest musicians not only in the state of Colorado, but in the nation.” Members’ prior experience includes playing with groups like The Emmitt-Nershi Band, Donovan Frankenreiter and Hot Soup. Collectively, they had also shared stages with notable artists Sam Bush, Jerry Douglas, Tim O’Brien, Tony Rice, Keller Williams, Jon Oates and the like and with notable groups The String Cheese Incident, Greensky Bluegrass, Yonder Mountain String Band and The Infamous Stringdusters.

The band’s latest release, Kiss the Ground (Summer 2016), represents its first full-length concept album and its third album of original music. Speaking to the struggles we all face as working people, Kiss the Ground sends a positive message while acknowledging real hardship in a society that expects far too much. “We think of this as our ode to the working people,” says Grant, whose song, “Get in Line,” discusses the high price we pay for things we want in life. Kiss the Ground explores real and mythological connections to the human struggle and pays homage to the "Working Class Hero," an archetype famously described by John Lennon.
Previous Grant Farm albums include a 2012 self-titled debut and a 2014 follow up, Plowin' Time, which reached #2 on JamBand Radio Charts and charted on Americana Radio. In 2014, the band also released the Meeting on the Mountain EP, an inspired collaboration with the group Fruition.
