    Interview: Sam Bush, Hops + Handrails headliner

    By Quentin Young Sam Bush is one of those rare artists who isn’t just great at his chosen medium but has changed the nature of the medium itself. He often is called the “father of newgrass” in reference to his role as a member of New Grass Revival, a 1970s bluegrass band that, adding rock and jazz influences, helped revolutionize the genre such that it spawned a sub-genre named after the band. Bush, who lives in Nashville, is a familiar […]

Throughout is singer Emma […]

    Dweezil Zappa brings dad’s music to Colorado

    By Quentin Young The Frank Zappa song “Big Swifty” is a shape-shifting, rhythmically complex piece of jazz-fusion composition from the 1972 album Waka/Jawaka. Frank’s son, guitar virtuoso Dweezil Zappa, has made a career in Zappa Plays Zappa out of re-creating the music of his father, who died in 1993.
