Blue Canyon Boys
The Foothills Bluegrass Music Society is proud to present

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 Boys have raised the bar for bluegrass bands. They
bring it all: seamless brother-duet style, crisp instrumentation, unvarnished lyrics
and subversive humor. After winning first place 2008 Telluride Bluegrass festival
band contest, the Blue Canyon Boys went off at full tilt, taking the bluegrass circuit
by storm, performing in illustrious venues across the country as well as
internationally.
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. Their latest album, eponymously called
The Blue Canyon Boys, is perhaps their most polished and poignant yet. Classic
bluegrass, clean and raw, blends effortlessly with the bands homegrown
compositions, then 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 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.
