In House #1724: Whitewater Ramble Live
The Fort Collins, Colorado quintet Whitewater Ramble has been something of an overnight success. Formed in 2004, the band has already enjoyed headlining status at several festivals throughout the west, and has opened for the likes of the Dark Star Orchestra, Karl Denson's Tiny Universe, the David Grisman Quintet, and Jerry Douglas, among others. They self-describe themselves as "jamgrass" (or occasionally, "technograss"), but their music runs the gamut of stringband repertory-- from tradtional Appalachian porch music to oldtime, country-flavored bluegrass to envelope-pushing, electric mandolin-led jams. Their high-energy live sets include original compostitions as well as songs by everyone from B.B. King and Johnny Cash to George Clinton and the Grateful Dead. We welcome Whitewater Ramble into the studio today for a performance and interview, ahead of tonight's show at Portneuf Valley Brewing in Pocatello.
In House #1724.
