When Trout Steak Revival won the Telluride Bluegrass Festival Band Competition in 2014, they emerged on the roots music scene to listeners anticipating yet another riff on progressive bluegrass with a hint of jam.

The group’s unique brand of mountain music stood out though, and quickly the band caught the attention of fans and folk radio DJs alike. Over the last several years, the Colorado quintet further refined its style and, with their 2017 album Spirit to the Sea, delivered a mesmerizing and soul-quenching selection  of original songs resonating with the finer points of folk and Americana. Produced by Chris Pandolfi of Grammy-winning The Infamous Stringdusters, the album was a reflection of the depth and honesty of songwriting that is possible when a trusting and encouraging group of friends grows together into a band of musicians.

With each individual contributing lead vocals and instrumentation to the band’s collaborative songwriting process, Trout Steak Revival is more than a sum of its five parts.

Bevin Foley (fiddle), Steve Foltz (guitar & mandolin), Casey Houlihan (bass), William Koster (guitar & dobro), and Travis McNamara (banjo) take turns singing lead and harmonies. Sharing the vocal ensemble roles creates a diverse and satisfying blend of musical offerings to listeners.

While each band member is from the Midwest, Trout Steak has been embraced by the culture of Colorado: the band won an Emmy for a soundtrack they contributed to a Rocky Mountain PBS. They collaborate with school children, participating in mentoring programs in Denver and Steamboat Springs. Their music is featured on Bank of Colorado’s radio and television advertisements. Westword named them Denver’s Best Bluegrass Band, and they were nominated as a Momentum Band of the Year by the International Bluegrass Music Association.

“Trout Steak Revival continues to realize their amazing potential as a band, upping their musical game and gaining new fans all across the country. They are committed to making an original statement that’s soulful and vibrant, and their…album, Spirit to the Sea, is the best example of that yet. The band members all write, sing and play like pros, but the collective takes precedence, and that is what truly sets them apart. Trout Steak is making beautiful, lasting music, and I feel very lucky to be a part of the process,” said Chris Pandolfi, Infamous Stringdusters.

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 CCAASE and Colorado Creative Industries.
