Rockin, big, loud
Lineage is a 6-piece progressive bluegrass style band out of Fort Collins, Colorado, considered one of the best up-and-coming Americana-bluegrass groups in Colorado. The members musical proficiency - Lydia Demi-Smith on violin, Chad Fisher on mandolin, Douglas Crowl on guitar, Mike Fritz on banjo, Jens Davis on bass, and Rich Boot on drums - is among the best of its peers in Colorado. While billed as a "bluegrass band," Lineage delves into road-house country music, jazz, rock, experimental jam, blues and more, while always returning to its roots of traditional Americana bluegrass and Appalachian music. Lineage also features unique three-part harmony singing on an array of original music, traditional song arrangements and interesting takes on popular tunes. As a package, Lineage is helping define the evolving genre of Colorado Bluegrass and jamgrass.
Lineage has nearly completed its debut album, due out in the spring of 2018, which will include 8 original tracks and 2 unique covers. It's currently booking shows, festivals and private events into the summer of 2018 throughout the Colorado.
