Friday, July 19 Music Lineup
HEADLINER (6:45 pm): Kuinka (Seattle, WA)
Described by NPR Music as joyous folk-pop, Kuinka “laces modern folk and Americana with an electronic jolt, waltzing along the grooved edges of dream-pop, synth-pop, and Brooklyn’s mid-aughts guitar-rock revival” (Vanyaland). Their genre-defying music features several different lead singers, four-part harmony, and eclectic instrumentation including cello, banjo, synthesizers, ukulele, and electronic percussion.
MIDDLE BILL (5:30 pm): The Lonesome Heroes (Austin, TX)
Austin’s Lonesome Heroes reside at the cosmic junction of indie rock and country. Led by frontman Rich Russell’s never-ending call of the road, the group have toured extensively behind two acclaimed albums across continents on both sides of the world, while never straying too far from their “Cosmic Americana” roots.
OPENER (4:00 pm): Inaiah Lujan (Pueblo, CO)
Inaiah Lujan is one of Colorado’s most prolific and talented musicians who has fronted national touring indie-rock bands in/PLANES and The Haunted Windchimes.
Saturday, July 20 Music Lineup
HEADLINER (6:45 pm): Dead Winter Carpenters (Tahoe, CA)
Americana band Dead Winter Carpenters has built a reputation for pouring their heart and soul into each performance. In just a few years, they have positioned themselves at the forefront of a youthful generation trying to redefine what string music is and what it can do. The band has shared stages with the likes of Jason Isbell and Greensky Bluegrass.
MIDDLE BILL (5:30 pm): Them Coulee Boys (Eau Claire, WI)
Them Coulee Boys craft a brand of Americana that blends punk, bluegrass, and rock & roll. Guitar, banjo, mandolin, bass, and a lone kick drum provide the pulse that drives underneath the conversational yet thoughtful lyrics.
Music for the Wind River Mountain Festival is presented by The Pinedale Fine Arts Council (PFAC) as part of the 12th Annual Soundcheck Summer Music Series.
