Masontown
A new and enchanting sound has emerged from the hotbed of the Colorado roots music scene. Masontown, a young band with a concept as timeless as the Rocky Mountains, has alighted onto a bluegrass community that has already produced some of the best that the acoustic music world has to offer. But Colorado, and the wider world of modern music, hasn’t quite heard this yet.

A lauded fiddle champion and classical violinist. A veteran bluegrass mandolin player and composer. One of Colorado’s jazz guitar greats reborn as a flatpicking sensation. An upright bassist with roots running deep in the classical and jazz traditions. These are the individual elements that come together to create Masontown.

Masontown’s sound is a exciting take on the American acoustic tradition. At once fresh and familiar, the group unites the sounds of bluegrass, old-time, folk, and new acoustic music into a sonic melting pot that hearkens back to our deep musical traditions while remaining defiantly modern in conception. Echoes of the poignant exploration of the Matt Flinner Trio blend with the fierce drive of Bill Monroe and the plaintive song-craft of Cahalen Morrison and Eli West. It’s no surprise that the members of Masontown have shared the stage with many of these musical icons that their sound evokes.

The listening halls and dance floors of Colorado have already begun to hail the arrival of this new force in the acoustic music community. Masontown is a band on the move, driven to delight the ears, touch the hearts, and move the feet of generations of music lovers in Colorado and far beyond.
Masontown is:

Eric Wiggs (guitar / vocals)
Natalie Padilla (fiddle / vocals)
Mike Canney (mandolin / vocals)
Bradley Morse (bass / vocals)
Missy Chamberland - (Set time: 5:30 PM)
Missy Chamberland
Missy was raised as an Air Force brat moving so much her AM/FM boombox radio was her best friend. She attended Columbia University in NYC finishing her engineering degree but decided to become an orthopedic surgeon after helping people at the scene of a one car, high speed, rollover accident on Germany’s autobahn. After her MD and orthopedic training at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia, Missy and her husband, Phil, now married 30 years, with their 2 children moved to Crested Butte, CO to start her solo practice in sports medicine arthroscopy. She mended injured athletes for the Crested Butte Ski Area and Western State Colorado University as team orthopedic surgeon since 1994.

Dr. Chamberland recently retired with a bad back and is now songwriting a lot more, which began as a hobby 8 years ago, when her kids were less interested in Mommy and Phil was working long hours. Her writing passion is the human condition, usually her own. She loves storytelling like Dean Dillon/John Prine/Tom T. Hall and people tell her she sings like Loretta Lynn/Iris Dement. Her first EP album, was recently produced/recorded by Dean Dillon, songwriter of 30 of George Strait’s 60 #1 hits, in Nashville, TN.
