MeadowGrass benefit Wednesday, plus Son Volt surprise

Memorial Day weekend is just around the corner, and with it, the MeadowGrass Music Festival.

Tomorrow evening, you’ll be able to get a small preview of things to come, while also lending support to help pay for the musical acts who’ll be performing at the three-day fest. (This year’s artists will include Blitzen Trapper, Kristin Hersh, Dawes, Todd Snider & Great American Taxi, and Anais Mitchell with Jefferson Hamer.)

Two local acts who’ll be playing the festival — Chauncy Crandall and the Joe Johnson Band — will also be performing at Wednesday’s Jack Quinn’s fundraiser.

While the event is free, a bunch of celebrity bartenders — including members of Peaks and Pasties and the Pikes Peak Derby Dames, plus FOX 21’s Craig Coffey and Goose from 92.9 Peak FM — will be donating their tips to the MeadowGrass fest.

Coincidentally enough, if you missed last year’s MeadowGrass headliner, you’ll be glad to know that Son Volt has just been booked to play the Black Sheep. The July 16 show is bound to sell out, so invest now if you want to go.
