"When the five members of Meadow Mountain walk on stage, the first thing new fans notice is that the band dresses up to play Bluegrass. The players in this band are young, but they walk on stage with the confidence of a well-seasoned Bluegrass band - and indeed, they are. They have logged thousands of hours playing together. They have given a TED talk on the history of Bluegrass, they have opened for Del McCoury and Sam Bush, and they have even worked as the house band on a cruise ship. In 2017 they won the prestigious Rockygrass band contest, and in this year they opened the festival to hundreds of cheering fans.

At downbeat, it becomes clear that Meadow Mountain isn’t just a group of talented musicians getting together for a gig. They are a band in the true sense of the word - a whole larger than the sum of its parts. Their music plays to each members’ individual strengths, and the finished product is a style of Bluegrass that Colorado has not played host to until now.

This band, while rooted deeply in Colorado soil, devours every tradition of music they can get their hands on, and it all ends up on stage with them.

In late 2017, they caught the ears of Infamous Stringduster, Chris Pandolfi, who produced their debut record at Mighty Fine Productions. They are releasing their record November 2nd, 2018 on the TapeTime Record Label, curated by the Infamous Stringdusters."

Bluegrass has become a mainstay in Colorado. The music of the mountains speaks to us and we can feel it in our souls. When a band like Wood Belly comes along to channel it, the sky is the limit. Led by a pair of prolific songwriters, their songs are carefully and collectively crafted to ring out with honesty and passion. Wood Belly blends traditional bluegrass with modern songwriting and whether you’re spinning your partner around or hanging on every word, the result is the same. You're left smiling and wanting more.

The band was born when Chris Weist (Mandolin) met Craig Patterson (Guitar) and Chris Zink (Dobro) at the Rockygrass Festival in 2015. Within a year they had teamed up with Aaron McCloskey (Banjo) and Taylor Shuck (Bass) and the music immediately fell into place.
