Bluegrass for the Front Range of Northern Colorado and beyond... The award-winning Lonesome Traveler Bluegrass Band features tight two and three part harmonies and original songwriting from mandolinist Jodi Boyce, guitarist Dustin Scott, and dobroist Ansel Foxley, great fingerstyle guitar from Rick Scott, smooth fiddle from Chad Fisher, and solid dawg-house bass from Evan Neal. LTBB is rooted in the great traditions of bluegrass, but our sound reflects influences from blues, folk, rock and roll, traditional country and Celtic music. LTBB counts among our influences such diverse artists as Gillian Welch, Natalie Merchant, Led Zeppelin, Bill Monroe, Tim O'Brien, Hot Rize, Del McCoury, Red Hot Chili Peppers, John Denver, Dolly Parton and the Nashville Bluegrass Band.
LTBB was formed for Chad's wedding in 2005 and quickly became known in the bluegrass hotbed of the Front Range of Colorado as an up and coming band. LTBB entered the Telluride and RockyGrass Bluegrass Band contests in 2007 - placing 2nd in both contests, a feat never before accomplished by one band in the same calendar year. LTBB also placed 2nd in the 2006 Wickenburg Bluegrass Festival Band contest. Individual awards for the band include 1st place Specialty Duet for Jodi and Dustin at the 2006 Wickenburg Bluegrass Festival, and 1st place Dobro for Ansel at 2007 RockyGrass Festival.
LTBB is touring and playing festivals in 2007 in support of the release of the self-titled “Lonesome Traveler Bluegrass Band. This CD features Jodi, Dustin, Rick, Evan, and original banjo player James Weatherly, and was engineered and produced by Aaron Youngberg (The Billy Pilgrims, formerly of Hit & Run Bluegrass) of Swingfingers Studio, Ft. Collins, Colorado. We are also making plans to record our second CD this fall, with a projected release date of December 2007.
