NEDFEST 18 BOASTS AN INITIAL LINE-UP THAT ALREADY RIVALS YEARS PAST!!

I decided that I had waited long enough to post about the early line-up announcements for Ned Fest 18, up in Nederland, just west of Boulder in the Flatirons. My wife and I have attended this fairly intimate mountain festival for nine years, and have been fortunate enough to see Dr. John, Sam Bush, Ricky Skaggs & Kentucky Thunder, Robert Randolph & The Family Band, David Grisman Quintet, Leftover Salmon, The Motet, Elephant Revival and many more, on the Ned Fest stage. This year’s three day festival could possibly be hosting one of the best line-ups in the festivals history, even though there are still a few acts to be released, including a headliner slot.

A few weeks ago, Ned Fest made its first Facebook posting about this year’s line-up, letting us know that Kyle Hollingsworth from The String Cheese Incident will be bringing his band to Nederland for the first of two main stage sets on Friday, August 26. Then, about a week later, they revealed that Sunday evening’s headliner would be Denver’s own Paper Bird. Things were pretty quiet for a couple of weeks, until last week when they revealed that pedal steel giant, Roosevelt Collier would be bringing his Colorado Get Down featuring The String Cheese Incident’s, Billy Nershi, to the Ned Fest stage, in the middle of the day on Saturday, August 27. At the beginning of this week, it was unveiled that Melvin Seals & JGB would be bringing their sweet soul rocking sounds to this year’s fest on Saturday. All these announcements were awesome, but the icing on the cake so far, has to be the announcement of Saturday’s headliner, the legendary Taj Mahal Trio. Besides these incredible acts, the Sunday of Ned Fest starts with some local youth putting their talent and the funds from this non-profit festival to good use on the Ned Fest stage.

The Kyle Hollingsworth Band has been The String Cheese Incident keyboardist’s side project for many years and has performed a couple of times at the mountain fest. The band is an excellent vehicle for Kyle’s original compositions and some eclectic covers, not to mention some superb improvisation.

Paper Bird is a Denver-based old-timey harmonious folk sextet, that has been performing nationally for several years, with a new album being produced by music legend, John Oates. They will close out this year’s festival with the gentle beauty of their mountain meadow sound, at 6 p.m. on Sunday.

Roosevelt Collier is a pedal steel guitar player, who was a member of the gospel group, The Lee Boys. For the last few years, Roosevelt has found himself on stages with the likes of Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe and more, but most recently, Roosevelt’s Colorado Get Downs have featured everyone from banjoist Andy Thorn (Leftover Salmon), dobro player Andy Hall (The Infamous Stringdusters) to members of The Motet and more. The String Cheese Incident’s Billy Nershi, has been a recent participant in the Get Downs and will be joining Roosevelt at Ned Fest on Saturday for the 4 p.m. slot.

Melvin Seals was the keyboardist for the Jerry Garcia Band for about fifteen years before Jerry’s death, but Melvin has managed to continue the band in his memory, with several line-up changes, while remaining true to the music that Jerry loved outside of the Grateful Dead. I have seen Melvin and company, several times and have always thoroughly enjoyed the experience, especially the couple of times I have seen them at Ned Fest. This Ned Fest favorite will take to the stage at 6 p.m. on Saturday, August 27.

The big announcement up to this point has to be the addition of Saturday night’s headliner, the legendary Taj Mahal. Taj has been making music for decades and unlike many artists that are constantly borrowing from the blues, Taj is continuously giving back to the blues with a better understanding of the universality of the music. Though his music is usually considered to be blues, he is a true proponent of music from every corner of the planet. I have had the pleasure of seeing Taj live a couple of times, and am tickled at another opportunity to see this man perform, especially in such a wonderful setting.

Ned Fest 2018 three day passes are available now for $135, until the weekend of the festival, when those will go up a bit. They have also just released $55 tickets for just Saturday with single day tickets for Friday and Sunday, going on sale soon!! That’s What I Know, So That’s What You Know!! Enjoy!!

HAPPY  LISTENING!!!! 😉

This is most, and certainly the best, of the live music to hear along the Front Range, next week. There are some national acts like Soulive, Glen Hansard and Greensky Bluegrass coming to the area, while local darlings Polytoxic, The Yawpers and Danielle Ate The Sandwich have been maintaining Colorado’s high level of music credibility, all over the place. As is the norm, I have marked the shows I recommend with an * after the venue’s name. Though the weather is getting colder, it is hard to deny your ears the opportunity to catch some of the incredible music in the area, next week. That’s What I Know, So That’s What You Know!! Enjoy!!

HAPPY LISTENING!!!! 😉
