The Meltdown Sisters
The Meltdown Sisters is a group of women musicians wrangled by KC Groves. These talented women all possess a deep love of bluegrass as well as Old Time American String Band music. The band’s all-star roster includes Sharon Gilchrist on mandolin (Peter Rowan & Tony Rice, Uncle Earl), Colleen Heine on fiddle (Bowregard—2019 Telluride Band Contest winners), Maddie Cody on banjo (The Cody Sisters), KC Groves on bass (Uncle Earl, Jeff Scroggins & Colorado) and Amy Scher on guitar recently relocated to Paonia, Colorado after honing her bluegrass chops in the San Francisco Bay Area’s bluegrass and old time music community. She currently plays as a duet with Hailey Pexton (Amy Scher & Hailey Pexton) and has shared stages with California legends Laurie Lewis, Sharon Gilchrist and Kathy Kallick. The band is sure to wow you with adept instrumentation, fine vocals, original material—and as a bonus—a sampling of twin mandolin duets featuring both Sharon and KC. (And yes, the band will play The Crayola Song!)
Joining forces for the first time ever, The Meltdown Sisters have appropriately named themselves to honor and celebrate the Durango Meltdown, and the re-emergence of live music on its many stages.
