Collins at The Aggie and Friday & Saturday in Denver at Cervante's, were slated to include Bill Nershi of String Cheese Incident and Anders Beck of Greensky Bluegrass at all three shows with special guest, Del McCoury on Saturday.

Ragged Union Announced 3 Front Range January Bluegrass Shows

Ragged UnionTowards the outer edge of bluegrass, where powerful drive meets outsider songwriting –that’s where you’ll find Ragged Union. Centered around the flatpicking, singing and songwriting of guitarist Geoff Union (formerly of the Two High String Band), this particular take on the colorful bluegrass tradition combines influences such as Danny Paisley, John Hartford, and Norman Blake, along with Flatt and Scruggs and Bill Monroe. The music has a raw energy, like a steam-powered bluegrass train, driven at full throttle, wheels coming off the inside rails around the bend and slamming down hard in the straightaway. Ragged Union has already booked three shows for January.
