Moonlight Concert Series:
Whitewater Ramble
Saturday, August 25.
Doors open 7:30, Concert 8 pm.

Described as “High-Octane Rocky Mountain Dance Grass”, Whitewater Ramble uses a simple recipe to craft its sound: start with bluegrass instrumentation, add drums, and finish with a boundary-less approach to grassing-up everything from disco house grooves to roots to Americana. The Colorado-bred quintet combines the elements of mandolin, fiddle, acoustic guitar, upright bass, drums and vocals to explore the musical boundaries of multiple genres and to fuel their own mixture of original music and innovative cover song interpretations. Whitewater Ramble delivers a powerful and memorable live performance. Black Box Theatre. Tickets: $18/adults, $15/seniors (60+) & GAC members.
Get tickets HERE.
