We interviewed Big Richard in May for their debut at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival. Go here to read their full story and listen to a podcast with Emma Rose. For the record the group is a knock out:

“Big Richard is new to the Bluegrass scene, but they’re absolutely on fire. This all-female quartet has made waves since they formed in 2021, and it seems like there is no end in sight. It’s incredible to see such talented young women coming into this space and making it their own. These ladies are going places, and we’re psyched to be along for the ride,” said Grace Barrett of Planet Bluegrass.

What began as an all-female festival collab quickly morphed into a serious passion project driven by sisterhood, harmony and humor……along with the shared desire to rage fiddle tunes and smash the patriarchy.

Big Richard is a neo-acoustic super group made up of four well-established Colorado musicians: Bonnie Sims on mandolin (Bonnie & Taylor Sims/Everybody Loves An Outlaw/Bonnie & the Clydes); Joy Adams on cello (Nathaniel Rateliff/Darol Anger/Half Pelican); Emma Rose on bass + guitar (Sound of Honey/Daniel Rodriguez/Whippoorwill); and Eve Panning on fiddle (Lonesome Days).

Homegrown talent, DJ EMERITA not only remixes songs, but completely reimagines them. She creatively blends old-school hip-hop beats, cutting edge electronica riffs with both classic and contemporary R&B vocals. Her set is inspired by the mountains, the forests, the sea and by the vast diversity of culture she has experienced during her worldwide travels. Be transported through time and to every corner of the globe with this music. Emancipate your spirit as the music moves you physically and emotionally.

AfterSHOWS are free and open to the public, but priority entrance is given to Big Richard ticket purchasers.

Sheridan Arts Foundation, more.

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, Colorado Creative Industries, the Telluride Foundation, and an American Rescue Plan Act grant from the National Endowment for the Arts to support general operating expenses in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
