The Holler!

Saturday Night - 8:30pm to 9:15pm @ Washington's | 21+

Americana Funk Grass

Based in Fort Collins, Colorado, The Holler! presents a funky progressive bluegrass sound, rock n' roll personality and bombastic vocals delivered with mountaintop exclamation. In the canyons of influence, with child-like eyes and wonder, these tone chasers relentlessly explore their roots in acoustic music and dramatic lyricism. This band's bottomless cup of original repertoire is led by mandolin obsessed song-smith Michael Kirkpatrick, whose voice resonates with evangelical theatrics and gratitude. The Holler! just released their first album since 2011: Wildwood.

17 years of sonic wanderlust has seen the band through many forms, employing sitar, keyboards, tuba, lap steel, accordion and world percussion into their evolving acoustic folk-rock format. Their repertoire artistically celebrates reverence for nature, the exploration of human consciousness, and their passion for festive community gatherings while echoing the Colorado landscape The Holler! calls home.

-The group's songwriting is second-to-none
