BAND SHOWCASE (Free to the Public)
Saturday, Noon – 5 p.m., Elks Lodge, 9th St. & East 2nd Ave.

Since the early years of the Meltdown, the Band Showcase has provided a stage for bands that want to participate but for whatever reason aren’t ready or willing to play the ‘main stage’. ‘Bluegrass Band’ criteria are sometimes bent for the Band Showcase, but it never lacks for entertainment, and this year is no exception with Colorado College Bluegrass Ensemble 2nd and 3rd tier bands, Woodland Remedy TOTALLY HAPPY CAMPERS and Escalante Creative Strings. This perpetual Meltdown favorite continues to be free to the public and will take place downstairs at the Durango Elks Lodge, from noon to 5 pm on Saturday.
