Handcrafted Music Deserves Handcrafted Beer. Leftover Salmon is releasing their third original single, “Get Up and Go,” through Breckenridge Brewery of Colorado on select 12-packs Sampler Packs through October. “Get Up and Go” includes guest musicians Steve Berlin (Keys), Andy Hall (Dobro) & Joey Porter (Organ). The download code for the song will be marked on a Rock Artist Series coaster, specially created for the song by Nate Duval. It will be available soon on iTunes. This is the third song in a series of four recorded in a special partnership which brings new meaning to the practice of catch and release between Breckenridge Brewery and LoS this year.

“I wrote ‘Get Up and Go’ on the beach in Newport, Oregon. A friend was injured in a car accident and had been holed up recovering for months on end, in a wheelchair and trying to take care of her two kids. It was clear she needed a break so my girl and I packed her and the kids up and went to the beach for a couple days of recreation. One afternoon I excused myself to try to do some song catching on the hotel balcony, and thought of how good it is to get out and enjoy the world when trying to rehabilitate one’s self,” says Vince Herman.

“For myself, a quiet hour in the woods or staring at water always seems to improve my perspective and get me back in my groove. I wanted to get that into a song. I know it’s pure escapism, but sometimes that’s when we’re most alive. So get out there and eat up the world folks. Have a cold Breckenridge Beer while you’re at it.”

Breck Beer and LoS will be hosting contests that include winning a trip for two to the Boulder, CO Thanksgiving shows and an Andrew White guitar played by Vince this season. Limited edition screen-printed posters of each of the songs, framed by Further Frames, are also among the prizes. The contests and posters will be announced through select giveaways on social media and at special events across the country.

NPR’s Mountain Stage heralded Colorado’s Leftover Salmon as “one of the most beloved acts on America’s summer-festival circuit.” Leftover Salmon emerged on the scene in Boulder, CO in 1989 as one of the first bluegrass bands to add drums and tour rock & roll bars, helping Salmon become a pillar of the jam band scene and unwitting architects of the jam grass genre. “This is one fish that has only gotten better with age. Fiery solos and elements of country, bluegrass, jazz and jam rock combine into a heady mix of feel-good tunes — and some that carry a hefty message, as well,” said CMT.

Leftover Salmon Releases 2nd Single Through Breckenridge Brewery:
“Thornpipe” Featuring Casey Dreissen

Because Handcrafted Music Deserves Handcrafted Beer.

Thornpipe is Available This August Through Breck Brew Download Cards
Accompanied with an Artist Series Coaster and Contests

Bringing new meaning to the practice of catch and release, Breckenridge Brewery of Colorado and bluegrass band Leftover Salmon have caught up with each other to launch the second release in a series of four original songs. The new music is being pre-released exclusively within Breckenridge Brewery’s 12-pack Sampler Packs through October. Each of four song download codes is provided on Artist Series coasters, specially created by four well-known artists from the “Rock Art” community and packaged inside the Sampler Packs.

The second song available is “Thornpipe,” which Andy Thorn wrote years ago, but he believed it was missing something. While attending the Old Settler’s Music Festival in Austin in April, the group hooked up with Casey Driessen who added the missing component – sounds from his fiddle. Sound engineer Mario Casillio was able to set up a makeshift studio in the back of the band’s bus, and as Thorn remembers, “Casey was kind enough to spend a bit of his afternoon laying down some hot fiddlin’.”

“In music you’ve got your hornpipes and your jigs, but this tune is a ‘Thornpipe,’” continued Thorn. “It’s a pretty simple banjo tune with a few twists and turns to have fun with.”

Renowned poster artist Jeff Wood of Zen Mystic Studio created the artwork for “Thornpipe.”

“My art is heavily steeped in psychedelia, so when approached about the LoS Breckenridge coaster project, swirling images started dancing through my head,” said Wood. “‘Thornpipe’ is a great bluegrass tune and I envisioned a group of salmon forming a mandala spinning inside a ring of thorns. Mandalas have been used through the ages as a meditation and contemplation tool for the artist and the viewer. My hopes were that when one looks at the coaster image they will become lost in the image and, with beer in hand, it will take them to a more peaceful Colorado state of mind.”

The second Artist Series song download coasters will begin shipping in specially marked Breckenridge Brewery 12-pack Sampler Packs in mid-August. Every download that is retrieved enters that person in a drawing. The grand prize is a trip for two to Colorado for a VIP experience at Leftover Salmon’s Thanksgiving shows, with a behind-the-scenes Breckenridge Brewery tour and a band meet-and-greet. Other prizes include a band-autographed acoustic guitar made by Andrew White Guitars, which builds Vince Herman his guitars; a set of four Artist Series coaster posters, framed and signed by the band; and weekly online poster giveaways.

Gary Houston, Jeff Wood, Nate Duval and Tyler Stout each crafted their artwork with inspiration from Leftover Salmon’s new music and Breckenridge Brewery’s beers. In addition to the coasters, each artist is printing a limited run of 100 screen print posters that are numbered and signed. The posters are available through weekly giveaways on both Breckenridge Brewery’s and Leftover Salmon’s Facebook and Instagram pages. They also will be given away at special events in select bars in cities where the band is touring.
