Hot Rize to Headline 20th Annual 4 Corners Folk Fest

Hot Rize with Red Knuckles and the TrailblazersPagosa Springs, CO -- It didn’t take long after Tim O’Brien, Pete Wernick, Nick Forster, and Charles Sawtelle first appeared onstage together in 1978 for the bluegrass music world to realize that the Colorado band, Hot Rize, was something special. By the time they bowed off the stage as a full-time act in 1990, they’d not only climbed to the top of that world as the International Bluegrass Music Association’s very first Entertainers of the Year, but their stature was recognized across the board, with a nomination for a then-new bluegrass Grammy, a four-star album review in Rolling Stone, tours across four continents, and a legion of up-and-coming, broad-minded young musicians learning their songs and singing their praises.

Theme by Danetsoft and Danang Probo Sayekti inspired by Maksimer
