BioOh how blessed we are here in Lyons. For more than five years, KC Groves (founding member of Uncle Earl), has been hosting one of Colorado's best bluegrass jams every Tuesday night at Oskar Blues. One one of those Tuesday nights the voices of KC, Bonnie Sims (mandolin), and Tierney Kathleen (guitar) met in a side jam in the hallway. The vocal trio ran into Swedish fiddler Frida Rosen and banjo player Eric Merkt (the rock-steady balance to this otherwise all-woman band), and The Blue Maddies were born. Drawing inspiration from Seldom Scene and Doyle Lawson, says KC: "When we sing together our voices push against each other, holding onto each other, using each other's weight and balance - this perfect balance. Bluegrass harmony is an art, different from any other kind of singing." On this Sunday morning gospel set, the bandmembers showcase their deep southern Gospel roots, from West Virginia to Texas... to Lyons. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. ..Blue Maddies at ROCKYGRASS...... .. .. .. .. .. .. ..Blue Maddies at ROCKYGRASS...... .. .. .. .. .. ..
