      beautifully voiced Fort Collins songwriters. These musicians come together for the first time to create a unique
      experience for artist and audience alike.

      Eric Thorin on bass
      Joe Lessard on fiddle
      Eric Wiggs on guitar
      Jordan Ramsey on mandolin
      Dusty Rider on banjo and pedal steel

      With a very special opening set by:
      Lady Moon (Eva Holbrook of SHEL)

      And special performances from:
      Alysia Kraft
      Courtney Hartman
      Bethel Steele
