Guilty as charged.  At the Buffalo Grass Acoustic Society we play favorites.  We always have.  Show after show we invite crowd-pleasing, top performers to our stage.

And now back by popular demand... Allen and Jill from Custer, South Dakota will grace our stage on January 19th.  See?  I told you we play favorites.

From the moment they walk on the stage you will know why they are some of our favorite performers and why we nab them every time we can. 

You'll have the opportunity to enjoy a great evening of Cowboy Music -- fast paced, slow moving and in between.  Of course a little of Allen's yodeling is a must as are Jill's signature stories.
As a singer-songwriter Allen has a way with lyrics and music that lifts your spirits and draws you straight into his story.   Jill's tight harmonies, steady bass and poignant harmonica are the perfect compliment to Allen's clear voice.

It's no wonder these two 2015 Cowboy Idol winners have reached finalist in more than one WMA category.

Allen and Jill are performing members of the Grand Jamboree Show in Custer, South Dakota.   Allen is worship pastor at Crossroads Church in Custer.  Both are members of the South Dakota Mounted US Marshals. 

This dynamic duo is releasing a new CD in January 2018.  I am looking forward to hearing some of the new songs.  Currently my favorite of their 'oldies'  is Ghost Towns.  You can have a listen on YouTube if you like.  I hope they sing that one in January.

Do plan to join us for a fun evening on January 19th.  On that typically cold evening you can bet it will be warm and cozy inside at our show.

We begin at 7:00.  See you there!

Miner Pickers
Miner Pickers
featuring Gary and Suzie Solomon

*The Miner Pickers* consists of Suzie and Gary Solomon, who are acoustic multi-instrumentalists and great singers with a love for performing fun, thoughtful music and teaching square dances and Western history to classes of all ages. They live in the mountains above Idaho Springs CO

We've seen them before at Buffalo Grass, in a couple of different bands they have led. Most recently we saw them in the acoustic folk / bluegrass / Gospel band *BackCountry*, which often plays in the greater Denver area as well as festivals around Colorado and beyond. The band will be performing on the main stage at the Mid-Winter festival in Northglenn CO.
E Bar C
Gospel Grass
'E Bar C' brings lively and fun bluegrass music to our stage. This group comes from rural Elbert County where wildlife, cattle and farming is the order of each day. The band is led by Gayle and John Gresham.

Gayle is a retired Elbert County librarian, a Colorado historian and contributor to Colorado Country Life magazine. She is currently writing a book about cattle rustling (this has got to be good!). Her historian's knowledge informs their songs and stories about the west.

Gayle and John are credited with the lyrics to "Freedom in January" based on research did on one of her outlaw relatives in early Colorado history. The song was recorded by WMA Male Performer of the Year (2013) Barry Ward and included on his 'Lonesome County Road' album.

John is a retired fire chief for Elbert County and a strong anchor for the band with his mandolin and steady voice.

In 1995 Gayle and John started the 'E Bar C' band. The band consists of John Gresham (mandolin), Gayle Gresham (guitar), Keven Pranger (bass), Dale Rosburg and Rebecca Schroeder (vocals). Audiences enjoy their 4-part harmonies and toe-tapping music. Come enjoy great bluegrass music by E Bar C at Buffalo Grass Country Concerts.

Suzie has been playing instruments and singing since her childhood, and is talented on guitar, mandolin, bass, banjo, autoharp and mountain dulcimer, among others, and has a soulful and nuanced singing voice.

Gary Solomon married Suzie in 2005, and came up to speed quickly on several instruments. He has a great 'backwoods' voice which goes so well with some of their traditional folk songs from Appalachia and elsewhere. He is also a 5th generation Colorado native (how often do you meet one of those?) and very handy mechanically and running sound boards and systems for bands. Suzie and Gary host the "Gospel Grass" music festival (it's free!) in Elizabeth CO on the first weekend in August. They hope you will come there this summer!
