Head for the Hills
Head for the Hills prides itself on defying expectation, turning neophytes into converts and genre purists exploratory listeners. Remaining true to the roots of bluegrass while simultaneously looking to its future prospects, the band makes music that reaches into jazz, indie rock, hip hop, soul, world and folk to stitch together cutting edge songs that bridge the divide between past and future acoustic music.
Head for the Hills have been bringing their music to audiences from the Telluride Bluegrass Festival to South by Southwest and a multitude of stages in between--including Summer Camp Music Festival, High Sierra Music Festival, RockyGrass, DelFest, Northwest String Summit, Blue Ox Music Festival, FloydFest, Strawberry Music Festival and many more. The band has been featured on NPR Ideastream and eTown, co-released beers with Odell Brewing Company and Sanitas Brewing, and charted on the CMJ Top 200.

300 Days exploded onto the Front Range bluegrass scene in 2016 with their fiery, original tunes, handcrafted by a trio of veteran musicians. The powerful, take no prisoners vocals and gravity defying fiddle playing of Melissa McGinley (StereoFidelics), finely honed songwriting by mandolinist and guitarist Nick Dunbar (Mountain Standard Time) and tight rhythms of jazz-trained Dave “Pump” Solzberg (Fox Street All Stars) on upright bass have been electrifying audiences across Colorado.
For being such a young group, 300 Days boasts the instrumental prowess, vocal harmonies and host of original material of a well seasoned band. This Boulder-based ensemble combines their background in bluegrass, folk, rock, jazz and Americana into a sound they call “prograss” that will knock you off your chair and keep your toes tapping.
