Sugar and the Mint

Showtime: Saturday August 31st, 2019 7:00 PM

Sugar and the Mint’s spirited take on folk and bluegrass excites audiences across the country. The band synthesizes genres into a sparkling repertoire of original songs, balancing first-time singalong hooks with robust musicality. Sugar and the Mint’s unique vocal approach features complex, ethereal harmonies supporting accessible melodies. Informed by everything from bluegrass to baroque to current pop and country, the traditional blend of guitar, violins, mandolin and bass instrumentation is anything but standard-fare acoustic music.

In 2017, the band took first place in the Telluride Bluegrass Festival Band Contest. The Arizona group has since toured coast to coast and recorded two albums: Just Past Midnight (2018) and Grape Flavored (2017). The original music on these records showcases the band’s energy, songwriting artistry, and fresh perspective on folk and bluegrass.

Sugar and the Mint has shared festival bills with the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Emmylou Harris, Punch Brothers, Jerry Douglass, Tommy Emmanuel, and the Sam Bush Band and many more. The band’s festival booking history includes Telluride Bluegrass Festival (2018), Ogden Music Festival (2017, 2018), Pagosa Folk and Bluegrass Festival (2018), Rapidgrass Festival (2018), and Pickin’ in the Pines Acoustic Music Festival (2017).
