Stillhouse Junkies were due to make their UK tour debut in March 2020 before we had to cancel everything due to the pandemic. We’re now looking to re-schedule dates to mid/late June 2022 – please contact us for more details.
This talented American trio combines a wide range of acoustic genres including bluegrass, Western Swing, blues and a touch of classical, to create an attractive groove-filled melange of American roots music. Born out of a long-standing weekly residency at a distillery in Durango, Colorado, Stillhouse Junkies quickly became a fixture on the music scene of that state’s southwestern corner, establishing a solid local fan base in recent years. They’ve met with increasing success over the last few years, including taking second place in the prestigious band contest at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival and being featured artists at the International Bluegrass Music Association’s huge festival and conference.
Accomplished musicians Fred Kosak (guitar/ mandolin/ vocals), Alissa Wolf (fiddle/ vocals), and Cody Tinnin (double bass/ banjo/ vocals) have built up an eclectic catalogue of fine original music alongside some fun and creative covers, drawing on influences from Gillian Welch to the Allman Brothers, and Tim O’Brien to John Hiatt. The Junkies’ original music pays tribute to the remarkable diversity of their native Four Corners area of the Southwestern USA, with evocative songs that run the gamut of human experience: disenchantment with the pace of modern living, confronting adversity in its many forms, and story songs that imagine reality from the perspective of a small-town bartender or a lonely cattle driver. With two albums to their name including 2020’s fortuitously named Calamity, Stillhouse Junkies spent several years constantly writing, rehearsing and performing throughout Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, and Utah, before the Covid-19 pandemic brought their travelling to a standstill. Over the last year they have been busy with creative ways to continue bringing their music to new fans, including performing front-yard gigs throughout the summer in their home town of Durango, and creating and hosting the successful online series Sidecar, during the winter of 2020-21. We hope to finally bring them to real-life venues in the UK in mid/late June 2022 – please contact us for more details if you’d like to book this exceptional trio!
