In celebration of the Durango Bluegrass Meltdown this weekend, KSUT will feature Long Road Home's CD 'Live at eTown Hall', Friday at noon.
When Long Road Home formed in 2005 some described it as a “teenage super group”. The band was formed out of a jam session of like-minded youngsters at the 2005 Midwinter Bluegrass Festival in Denver, CO. Just one year later, in the summer of 2006, they took first place in the Rockygrass Band Competition. With the departure of three members, they had the opportunity to stretch out a little bit and make the jump from a “good kid band” to a plain great act. Now joined by two-time Grammy winner, Gene Libbea on bass, Jordan Ramsey on mandolin, and bluegrass banjo legend Pete Wernick on the banjo, Long Road Home is cementing their place in the bluegrass pantheon.
Long Road Home performs on Saturday at multiple venues in downtown Durango. The full festival schedule and all the details are online here: http://www.durangomeltdown.com/.
