WELCOME TO THE LEGACY OF THREE COLORADO BANDS
The Righteous Bluegrass Band ~~ Rufus Krisp ~~ Gone Johnson
The 1970’s and 80’s the Colorado music scene burgeoned with much young talent of all genres. One of those was a 4-piece bluegrass band in 1970 that evolved through three evolutions with players who later garnered an Emmy nomination, a number one Billboard song, orchestra compositions, University level music teaching, movie and TV soundtracks and dozens of recordings. One musician lasted through all iterations and it wasn’t the obvious singer/songwriter but rather the banjo player! Country was spawning a new sound — country rock and the banjo was able to run the table, at least in these three band kinships. Here is their story.
