“Settle back easy, Jim…” The words of Robert Hunter in the song “Althea” seemed to fit the mold of the band when it began in the fall of 2018 . The laid back group of musicians from Gunnison and Crested Butte, Colorado found a common love for the music with one another and a desire to learn the material. Complete with two drummers, the six piece also includes keyboards, two guitars, bass, and four part vocal harmonies. Easy Jim is known for their exciting original improvisations, high energy performances, and attention to detail. No two shows are ever the same and it’s always Easy Jim’s mission to provide a visceral concert experience that pays tribute to The Grateful Dead .
Local players Sam & Jenny Pankratz and friends deliver beautiful old-time West Elk bluegrass.
On-site hay meadow camping. Water and bathrooms are available all night. No outside alcohol is allowed in the concert venue but you may bring your own food/beverage at your campsite. No hook ups. Dogs are allowed on a leash ONLY at your campsite, dogs are NOT allowed in the venue.
