Salmon will release its latest polyethnic Cajun slamgrass songs through download codes available in Breckenridge’s Sampler Packs from today through October. The band – which played its first show in 1989, mere months before Breckenridge Brewery tapped its first keg – will release four new tunes. Salmon played the first song available through the Breckenridge deal – the foot-stomping “High Country” – at last weekend’s Winter Park’s SolShine Music Festival, riling the capacity crowd with its groovy slamgrass jam.
The Salmon-tuned Breck 12-packs also will include rock art coasters crafted by well known artists. Everyone who downloads the tunes will be entered in a contest with prizes that include a paid trip to the band’s just-announced Thanksgiving shows at the Boulder Theater and a band-signed acoustic guitar by Andrew White Guitars.
Jason Blevins is a strange dancer, but that has never stopped him.
