2:00 – 3:30 p.m. – Roma Ransom

Great music should do three things – connect you to the past, inspire you to envision the future, and find you wholly in the present moment. Roma Ransom does all three. Their repertoire includes old-time traditional ballads like Shady Grove and St.James Infirmary as well as sounds from European cultures, mainly that of Romania (hence the duo’s name) yet the music of Roma Ransom is distinctly their own. The sultry sweetness of Grace Easley on vocals paired with the couples’ vast instrumental array combine to form a style that can fit the mood for any setting. The couple was trained classically from an early age, (Grace on violin/viola, Gordon on guitar) making them an excellent choice for weddings and banquets in addition to their usual venues, namely restaurants, coffee shops and pubs.

3:30 – 5:00 p.m. – Front Range Highway

Front Range Highway is a bluegrass/folk band that formed in 2021 and offers a mix of bluegrass and americana folk music. Our performances are very energetic and we feature a nice mix of instruments, including guitar, banjo, bass, mando and dobra steel. We play mostly covers, and some original music, including Johnny Cash, Chris Stapleton, Grateful Dead, Sam Bush, Gillian Welsh, and traditional fiddle tunes and traditional bluegrass standards.
