Growling Old Men

1st Weekend - Saturday, May 23

The Growling Old Men are John Lowell (guitar & vocals)

and Ben Winship (mandolin & vocals).  The two veterans of the Rocky Mountain bluegrass and Americana scene present a relaxed set of virtuosic musicianship and tight harmonies - informed equally by the music of the Appalachian hills and the western plains.  In concert the Growling Old Men are both engaging and spontaneous as they strive to blend simplicity with complexity: all with good tone and a warm sense of humor.  For nearly 30 years they’ve played at festivals, concerts and workshops across the US, Canada, Europe and the UK, and have

four duo recordings to their credit.  Additionally, in 2019 Lowell released “This Long Stretch Of Gravel” and Winship released two new projects - “Acorns” and “Toolshed”.
