Following their sold-out show at Seven Arts in 2016, Ragged Union return with a bunch of new material, in the same contemporary bluegrass style that has earned them public and critical acclaim. Based in Boulder, Colorado, this globe-trotting six-piece bluegrass band features the singing and songwriting duo of husband-and-wife, Geoff and Christina Union, and 2016 Walnut Valley National Mandolin Champion, Jordan Ramsey.
Joined also by Spring Creek/Blue Canyon Boys banjo wizard, Chris Elliott, and Rocky Grass Academy veteran Justin Hoffenberg on the fiddle, this is a lean, dynamic and cohesive unit that puts on memorable and exciting shows for dancers, listeners, traditionalists and progressives alike. This concert will also feature the launch of the ‘Ragged Union Live at Leeds’ album, recorded at the aforementioned performance, with sixteen tracks at a promotional knock-down price.
With support from Otley’s own authentic folk, Americana and bluegrass band, Lost Loui.
