Focal Point Friends of Old-time Music Presents: Blue Canyon Boys
The Blue Canyon Boys are equal parts purists and innovators when it comes to Bluegrass: they stay true to the forms roots while constantly reimagining their relationship to tradition. The result is a toe-tapping mix of haunting standards, genre-bending arrangements, and catchy original numbersall built on the bedrock of their collective bluegrass mastery.

Ever since founding members Jason Hicks and Gary Dark launched the Blue Canyon Boys in 2006, the Blue Canyon Boyshave raised the bar for bluegrass bands. They bring it all:  seamless brother-duet style, crisp instrumentation, unvarnished lyrics and subversive humor. Their distinctive sound, honed from over a decade of performing together, moves easily from instrumental wizardry to playful ribbing. Ultimately and repeatedly, they hit a high notethe rare confluence of harmony that leaves the soul ajar. The seasoned quartet features Gary Dark on mandolin, Jason Hicks on guitar, Drew Garrett on bass, and Zach Daniels on banjo. Together, they play classic bluegrass, clean and raw, in an effortless blend with their own homegrown compositions, peppered with a judicious cover or two, such as the bands riveting take on Pink Floyds Time. Whether calling on their old timey musical roots or reconnoitering the future, the bands musical prowess never wavers. This is the high lonesome sound at its best: a driving pulse that weaves through harmonies and fierce rhythms, always with the reminder that as long as the music plays we are never quite alone.
