I’m searching for phrases to describe Phases of the Moon Music & Art Festival. It began as a dark side of the moon, but that was just a phase. As an audience, our hackles were already up, howling at the moon before the weekend ever arrived. Through no fault of the Phases organizers, RatDog had to cancel their appearance. Bobby Weir’s lightening is lazy.
Much-loved Boulder-based juggernaut Leftover Salmon can now add last night’s breathtaking show at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium to their burgeoning list of triumphant performances.
The evening couldn’t have been more auspicious, celebrating the 15th anniversary of the band’s illustrious 1999 album, The Nashville Sessions with nearly 2,500 enthusiastic fans, but also announcing the forthcoming release of a new long player, High Country, set for drop on Friday, November 28th (Black Friday).
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. Maybe you made it to Rockygrass in July and rejoiced in the revival of a flood-ravaged site miraculously sprung back to life with true roots community effort.

No single thing makes a festival the “best festival ever.” Sure, one great band can make it really good. Or maybe the campground scene was where it was at. But it’s really when you group those moments with the ones of unbearable laughter, silly dancing, and inspirational people that a festival becomes the “best ever.” And you know what? The Northwest String Summit consistently brings the best.
Leftover Salmon is excited to bring you a full weekend of music and more at The Stanley Hotel! Sam Bush will be joining LOS as a special guest on both Friday and Saturday.

Striking out on your own as a musician after being part of an ensemble is never easy to do, save for the fortunately marketable front men and Beyoncés of the world. Roosevelt Collier is doing his best, and while picking up steam, has never forgotten where he came from and what made him the musician he is today. Forged out of the Pentecostal beliefs surrounding “Sacred Steel,” Roosevelt is both carrier of the torch and genre-hijacking outlaw.
Leftover Salmon featuring Bill Payne of Little Feat played to a large crowd this past weekend on Sunday, April 20th. With the entire city a-lit with activities throughout the day, folks gathered in the streets outside of Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom in Denver, CO, while Method Man and Redman performed inside to a packed house. “People around the world are looking at Denver on this day...” said Vince Herman to The Denver Post/ Reverb.
