2018 Sunnyside Music Festival Lineup
Happening September 8 at 44th & Tejon
The Highland Ramblers
1:30pm - 2:30pm
These boys got their big break 10 years ago on the Sunnyside Music Fest Stage after winning the Battle of the Bands competition. What better place to celebrate their 10 year anniversary. . . and they are bringing some friends. Blending elements of Blues, Folk and Bluegrass, this five piece draws inspiration from classic artists such as Graham Parsons and the Grateful Dead with a nod to more contemporary bands from Ween to Wilco. Over the past decade, their unique sound has earned accolades from Westword (Ten of the Best Bluegrass Bands in Colorado: 2016) and CBSDenver (Top Local Bluegrass Bands in Colorado).
Eef and the Blues Express
3pm - 4pm
Eef and the Blues Express is one of Colorado's premier blues bands. Ever since this dynamic five piece was formed in 2009 they have been hitting the scene running. They were a semi-finalist at the 2017 International Blues Challenge in Memphis TN, and were at the IBC previously in 2015. They have toured the Mid-West and have opened for numerous national acts including Coco Montoya, Samantha Fish, Bernard Allison and Tinsley Ellis. Everywhere they play they are praised for their great musicianship, energy and good vibe. In 2015 they were nominated by the local newspaper 'Westword' for 'Best Blues Band'. In 2013 Eef was awarded 'Songwriter of the Year' at the CBS Members Choice Awards.
4:30pm - 5:30pm
Known as the Ragin’ Cajun, Kershaw won fame as king of Cajun fiddlers, taking the genre from his early days, raised in a musical family on a houseboat on a Louisiana Bayou, to international stages and television. Also well known as a singer and songwriter, his biggest hit song, the autobiographical “Louisiana Man” was the first song ever broadcast back to earth from the moon during the 1969 Apollo 12 Mission. Literally from the bayou to the moon, Kershaw has recorded fifteen albums and charted on the Hot Country Songs charts. He performed for years with his brother Rusty, and now Doug’s son Tyler plays drums in his band as well as manages his shows.
6pm - 7:30pm
