Tara Rose and the Real Deal
Oregon native, Tara Rose, had a natural inclination towards songwriting from an early age. It was not until her college years that she picked up a guitar and started her musical journey. Soon after graduating with a degree in Mechanical Engineering, she headed to the island of Maui where she spent the majority of her free time after work searching beaches and sea cliffs with her hound dog to find the perfect places to sit and cultivate her unique sound on guitar.
Steepland String Band
Steepland String Band is a high altitude bluegrass band born deep in the mighty San Juan Mountain Range of southwestern Colorado, and refined on the prairie of the Front Range. 'Steepland' is a fast driving, hard picking acoustic quartet that explores a vast multitude of musical genres, while managing to stay rooted in bluegrass tradition. The band was created around the love for and dedication to live music, and since their inception have committed themselves to creating a unique style of their own. They have managed to carve a niche in a genre of increasingly similar sounds by drawing from an extensive library of covers, and a continually expanding catalogue of original material, treating each show as a unique experience that successfully engages audiences and keeps them coming back for more. From the slap-style upright bass, to the piercing mandolin solos, Scruggs-style banjo rolls, driving guitar leads, and lonesome single-mic vocal harmonies, Steepland String Band is definitely right at home in Colorado’s community of progressive acoustic aficionados and dedicated bluegrass show-goers.
