Trout Steak Revival sit down to talk with Quentin Young at Second Story Garage in Boulder.
Trout Steak Revival, as far as we know, is the first band we’ve had in the
studio that has won an Emmy. The Denver bluegrass band’s music was on a
show on public TV in Denver that won the award, and TSR has a statuette
to prove it. (We even got to hold it — we can report that the figure
depicted in the award has sharp wings.)
But we didn’t even know about all that before the band showed up. We
invited Trout Steak Revival into the studio because the band is one of
the top bluegrass acts on the Front Range, a region that is serious
about its bluegrass.
With traditional instrumentation, an old-time approach to songwriting and
skillful delivery, Trout Steak made the session go swimmingly. Fiddler
Bevin Foley broke a string just as the session got under way, but her
timing was lucky — she made it to a nearby music store minutes before
What they brought us: A printed atlas, one of a couple the band keeps in
the event Trout Steak tours the world.
