May 10....Bluegrass CD Release Party with Spring Creek and No Limit - No Limit was formed in the spring of 2007 when Leah Perry had the idea to combine members of two then-existing bands: The Perry Family and Wire & Wood. No Limit plays traditional as well as “new” bluegrass, folk and old style country, plus they have original material and gospel music to share. Spring Creek, the fastest-rising young band in the West, is taking the bluegrass festival circuit by storm. Spring Creek built their foundation on a mastery of the fundamentals of classic bluegrass, yet they create their own contemporary style with a youthful, energetic feel. The winner of the Telluride and Rockgrass festivals in 2007, this Lyons, Colorado quartet play a mix of bluegrass standards and compelling originals, and all four musicians are accomplished lead and harmony vocalists.
