Fun, fiery and accomplished bluegrass and roots music from Southwestern Colorado
Now booking for March/April 2020
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 year, including taking second place in the prestigious band contest at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival, and have been touring extensively across the USA. 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.
Stillhouse 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 member of the Lewis and Clark expedition, a small-town bartender or a lonely cattle driver. With two albums to their name including 2018’s Hillbilly Poetry, and a third release in the pipeline, Stillhouse Junkies have spent the last couple of years constantly writing, rehearsing and gigging, honing their musical chops with performances throughout Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, and Utah. We’re delighted to be making plans for their first international tour!
