Fest! George Whitesell (guitar and saxophone) and Calvin Benton (guitar)
lead a great group of talented Colorado musicians!
Sow's Ear (formerly The Quattroids): From nearby La Veta, Sow's
Ear deserves the great local following they have! With a broad repertoire
and talent to spare, you'll want to come early to catch Sow's Ear's set!
Jaquie Gipson: Trinidad's own and our traditional opening
act! This is Jaquie's fifth Trinidaddio and she sets the stage perfectly
for the acts to follow. Her innovative guitar playing always leaves folks
wishing that her set was longer!
