On September 9, 2012, from 11:00-3:30, our Lake House Stage will host some talented musicians playing a more soothing repertoire than you’ll hear on our outdoor stages at The Big Chili Cook-Off.

At 11:00, stop in to hear Danny Masters, “A guitarist who can shred with the best of them or wrap us around his strings with a compelling and mesmerizing experience.”

At 12:15, listeners will be enthralled by Melodic Delights Ensemble, featuring violins and a cellist playing festive classical music.

At 1:30, Two Guitars Telling a Story will entertain you. Imagine Chet Atkins and his fingerstyle tunes combined with Eric Clapton and his sweet lead riffs joining together to play for you in your living room; this is their music.

Austin Young and No Difference

Posted in 2012, Around Town, September 2012, The Big Chili Cook-Off, USA, Who Gets This Whole Thing Going with tags , , , , , , , , , on 07-17-2012 by thebigchilicookoffevergreen

At last year’s event, one of the favorites on our music stage was local phenomenon Austin Young. We are thrilled to announce that once again Austin Young and No Difference will be playing at The Big Chili Cook-Off.

Austin is high energy, producing a high quality sound along with preserving the traditional roots of blues music. He is excited to be a part of “keeping the blues alive”! If you’ve never heard Austin Young, check his website here to listen to some samples of his music.

Austin Lee Young is a Colorado native and has been described by some as being a “phenom” guitar player.  His youth and energy lend to his own style of music which he calls “Texandrix Blues”.  At his young age he exudes unbelievable passion and displays electrifying musicianship in his performances. His inspirations span the likes of Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimi Hendrix, Albert King, Eric Clapton, Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters, Tim Young, and Ted Johnson.  Don’t miss the opportunity to hear this magnificent young guitarist and performer along with his band No Difference!

Music in the Lakehouse

The Big Chili Cook-Off Art & Music Festival is, in great part, about the music. We will have fantastic bands playing on the stage all day, lending to the festive air. But if you’re in the mood for something a little more low key, be sure to stop into the Lakehouse during the day. This is where our artists will be, with coffeehouse-type music, a wine bistro, and silent auction items to bid on.    Come in, sit and relax, and enjoy the “Art” part of our festival.

If you’re wondering who provides all the excellent music for our event, it’s our own Cactus Jack’s Saloon. Check out a fantastic write-up about Cactus Jack’s here in Paste Magazine – Signs of Life in Music, Film & Culture. They are number eight on Paste’s list of Twelve Restaurants with Musical Ties, the noted restaurants being from both Canada and the U.S. We couldn’t be more excited for Cactus Jack’s!! Not only are they making a splash nationally, they are also committed to giving back to the mountain community we all call home. You can check out their menu and calendar here to pick a night when you can enjoy great food and live music, right in the heart of Evergreen.
