Thunder and Rain is a 4-piece acoustic americana band from the Colorado Rocky Mountains. Consisting of acoustic guitar, mandolin, dobro, and upright bass, Thunder and Rain seamlessly blends their favorite elements of bluegrass, country, pop and alt-rock to cultivate their own take on the American roots music traditions. Driven by the catchy choruses and dreamy melodies sung by Erinn Peet-Lukes, the band perfectly supports her heartfelt songwriting with strong country grooves, lush harmonies and rich instrumental decoration.

Erinn formed the band in the fall of 2013 when she moved to Colorado from her hometown Redondo Beach, CA. Since then, she has added the classical talents of Ian Haegele (Upright Bass), the smooth sounds of Allen Cooke (Dobro/Lap Steel), the crisp chop from Dylan McCarthy (mandolin), and sometimes the beautiful melodies provided by Natalie Padilla (Fiddle).

Thunder and Rain has played for audiences in Canada, Ireland and the UK, as well as across the US. Their meaningful lyrics and soaring choruses have connected with fans both young and old. They are wrapping up their third studio album, "Passing in the Night", scheduled to be released fall of 2019. Notable past achievements include being 2014 Rockygrass Band Competition finalists, #1 Westward's Best Bluegrass bands of 2016, and Erinn Peet-Lukes being a 2018 Kerrville New Folk Songwriting Competition finalist.

Harper and The Midwest Kind
July 25th

Copper Box is an accordion-fueled, roots rock party! Based in Oshkosh, WI, awarded "Americana Artist of the Year 2012 & 2009" by WI Area Music Industry, this power quartet brings the best of what an accordion has to offer and beyond...from blues to 70's rock to polka rock to the kitchen sink!

Claude Bourbon
November 1st
7:30 pm - Cover $10

Ready for a unique and talented take on a wide range of musical traditions? Claude Bourbon is known throughout Europe and America for amazing guitar performances that take blues, Spanish, and Middle Eastern stylings into uncharted territories.

Claude's inimitable style incorporates all five digits on each hand dancing independently but in unison, plucking, picking and strumming at such speed and precision that his fingers often seem to melt into a blur. Thousands of people in the UK, Europe and USA have enjoyed listening to this virtuoso and for the majority of his audience it is an experience that compels them to return again and again to hear and watch him play, as his fingers lightly dance over the strings of his guitar and create a unique sound that is 'Claude'.

It is very hard to describe the almost endless amalgam of different influences in Claude's playing, all melting into each other, as he moves from classical openings, across a whole continent of cultural roots, from the Balearic's to the Balkans, and then across to the Mississippi Delta, and shoehorned into all that is music that would not have been out of place in the courts of Emperors and Kings.

Claude Bourbon weaved his songs through the audience as if on a journey through life taking in different flavours of Europe and beyond. His Spanish medieval blues evolved into Gypsy, Eastern European, with a splash of Paco de Lucia, Delta Blues and more. Holding audience attention under a musical spell.

It's not easy to begin to describe the breadth or mastery of the music you will hear if you are fortunate to catch one of Claude's gigs, it is a sort of sensory experience like no other. A top master of his craft and never appearing to be rushed, he has impeccable timing and makes things that one can only marvel at seem simple.
