Halden Wofford & the Hi Beams - (Set time: 6:30 PM)
Halden Wofford & the Hi Beams
Halden Wofford and the Hi-Beams ride out from the cutting
edge cowtown of Denver,
Colorado. Rootsy and real, neither revivalist nor retro, th
e Hi-Beams brand of country
music is as boundless and electrifying as America itself.
Equal parts Hank Williams and Johnny Depp, front man Halden Wofford pours forth a potent mix of rocked-up honky tonk, western swing, Dylanesque originals and spaghetti
western epics. There is no creative limit to the songwriter, illustrator, author, storyteller and
singer. But Halden has met his match in the Hi-Beams.
Each outrageous tale he spins is met
by the whine and wail of the steel guitar, the furious double-neck electric guitar and mandolin, and the relentless thump of the upright bass and drums.
From Red Rocks to rodeos, the Fillmore Auditorium to the
back of a flatbed truck, Prairie
Home Companion to performing arts centers, Halden Wofford and the Hi-Beams deliver an
unforgettable and original night of American music.“

Halden Wofford is a poet. The tracks on his brand new project Sinners & Saints are rich, funny and
poignant short stories that come all wrapped up in the amazing musical chops of the Hi Beams.
There’s no fast forwarding on this cd ... Halden’s tour de force and was well worth the wait.”

Mollie O'Brien

“Halden Wofford & the Hi*Beams throwback and stylish take on t
he honky tonk genre is a breath of
fresh air amidst other wannabe retro acts. With some of t
he choicest players on the Front Range and
a professionalism that is bar-none, the Hi*Beams landed themselves on the famed NPR show “

A Prairie Home Companion

” in recent years and Wofford’s distinct vocals continue to garner the band well-earned attention.”

Magazine, Boulder, CO

On the strength of this one hour, I’d say that Halden Wofford & the Hi*Beams are in the running
for Best Live Country Band in America.
