We are incredibly proud to announce that the Taj Mahal Trio will take the stage at 8:15 pm Saturday, August 27th for the 18th annual NedFest! With a half-century-long career this 2 time Grammy Award winning (9 times nominated) legend is often cited as a major influence by superstars like Ben Harper and Greg Allman. He has worked with greats like Buddy Guy, Muddy Waters, Etta James, and the Rolling Stones. He's played on Fallon's Late NIght with The Roots and with Eric Clapton at the Lincoln Center.
We've got quite the supergroup in store for you Saturday night at NedFest: Dave Schools, Neal Casal, Todd Snyder, Chad Staehly, Duane Trucks (yes, another one of those Truckses), and Jesse Aycock will knock your socks off with high-energy working class rock and roll! Want a taste? Check out the trailer from Justin Kreutzman's movie "The First Waltz" that he filmed about the band last year: https://youtu.be/mIV0SsIX0gE
Every summer music festival season brings a slew of new concepts and destinations for “festivarians” to pick and choose from. You have to marvel at the fact that so many continue to thrive year after year considering the amount of options that are out there. In Colorado alone thousands of tourists from everywhere come to enjoy countless summer music festival options.
We are excited to announce that Billy Nershi of the String Cheese Incident will be joining us on Friday night with bandmate Keith Moseley, amazing keyboardist Eric Deutsch, and our good friend drummer Christian Teele.
One of Rolling Stones' "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time," this musician's musician has appeared on the albums of artists as wide-ranging and illustrious as Buddy Guy, Ringo Starr, Santana, Dave Matthews, Elton John, and Soulive. On the flip side of that coin, folks like Eric Clapton, Ben Harper, Leon Russell, and Santana have appeared on his 6 albums.
Well, it wouldn’t be NedFest without a little rain and a lotta Vince Herman. As the first hopeful few sauntered on to the grounds last Friday, we dared the sky to open up wider and keep pouring down on us.
