Funk meets pop, rock meets hip hop, jazz meets reggae with Elder Grown, a band that uses the freedom of improvisational jams as a foundation for creating its captivating, soul-inspired sound that takes listeners on a genre-bending rollercoaster ride, often switching instruments mid-song.

Start with groovy, funk-inspired bass lines reminiscent of Motown meeting the Red Hot Chili Peppers, then add
a screaming lead guitar and bossy sax lines reflective of Pink Floyd and Maceo Parker. Finish it all off with inspiration from Rage Against the Machine, Atmosphere, and Sublime and you begin to understand the sound that is Elder Grown.

The Sheridan Arts Foundation was founded in 1991 as a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization to preserve the historic Sheridan Opera House as an arts and cultural resource for the Telluride community, to bring quality arts and cultural events to Telluride and to provide local and national youth with access and exposure to the arts through education. The Sheridan Arts Foundation is sponsored in part by grants from the Telluride Foundation, CCAASE and Just For Kids.
