Asleep at the Wheel at Center of the Arts

Western swing supergroup Asleep at the Wheel brings 40-plus years of experience to its unique combination of American blues, swing and traditional fiddling with demanding musical chops. Founder Ray Benson calls it “jazz with a cowboy hat,” and has played a foundational role in making it the living and creative genre of music that it is today. They dominate the “Country Instrumental” category with 10 Grammy awards, 20 studio albums, and 20 singles on the Billboard country charts, in addition to receiving the “Lifetime Achievement in Performance” from the American Music Awards. The band, originally from Paw Paw, West Virginia, now bases itself out of Austin, Texas. They come to Crested Butte with a new 2018 album – New Roots.

Chris Robinson Brotherhood at Center for the Arts

The prolific new standard-bearers of the psychedelic roots torch, Chris Robinson Brotherhood bring their shimmering acid-Americana once again to the Center stage. Overflowing with stunning musicianship and infectious energy, their latest album, Barefoot in the Head, pushes even more boundaries as Robinson and the band deftly intertwine country, blues and psychedelia, freewheeling 60s folk, and a breakneck stream of consciousness blurring the lines between fantasy and reality. It revels in the kind of adventurousness that only comes from five artists tuned into the same sonic wavelength. Rolling Stone calls their newest endeavor “… good-time music on an end-times mission.” Chris Robinson Brotherhood is Neal Casal (guitar), Tony Leone (drums), Adam MacDougall (keyboards), and Jeff Hill (bass). Two tiers of VIP packages are available with a pre-show Meet & Greet, personal photograph with Chris Robinson, specialized CRB memorabilia, and much more. Please find VIP ticket details and pricing on the events website.

Early Bird Tickets $40 (until 1/24/18).
