CASINO STAR THEATRE PRESENTS THE FABLED FOLKS IN A FREE BLUEGRASS CONCERT
The Fabled Folks, a Utah Acoustic quintet, will play a free concert at the Casino Star on October 5 in Gunnison.
The historic Casino Star Theatre continues its live performance series with a free bluegrass concert featuring The Fabled Folks on Thursday, October 5, at 7 pm.
Hailing from Utah County, The Fabled Folks are known for their unique blend of folk, bluegrass, rock, jazz, and Celtic music traditions. They deliver imaginative renditions of beloved classics and original compositions, invoking a range of emotions, from heartfelt to humorous. With engaging onstage banter, harmonious vocal melodies, and impressive instrumental skills, The Fabled Folks promise a memorable live performance.
The band, including Jason Fullmer on guitar, Abby Sudweeks on mandolin, Grace Monson on fiddle, James Moyar on pipes/whistle, and Kya Karine on bass, has been performing together for years, creating a distinctive sound that bridges genres.
Fans can look forward to their upcoming Fall release, a cover of Bela Fleck’s “Big Country,” available on all major streaming platforms.
The Fabled Folks are presented in collaboration with fellow Utah non-profit Excellence in the Community, which has organized 1100+ free concerts in Utah since 2012, featuring all local professional musicians. During the pandemic, they shifted to live-streamed shows from Salt Lake City’s Gallivan Center, garnering over 38 million views.
Since 1913, the Casino Star Theatre has been a cinematic and live entertainment hub in Gunnison and the surrounding areas. As a non-profit organization, it upholds this legacy by dedicating itself to the restoration of its historic venue and providing top-tier arts and entertainment to the central Utah valleys. Operating as the local arts agency, The Casino Star Theatre Foundation collaborates regularly with other local organizations, contributing to public arts projects like the newly completed ocean-themed outdoor mural on the Gunnison Valley Swimming Pool’s north side. While admission to this event is free, donations to the Casino Star Theatre Foundation are always accepted, both in person and through casinostartheatre.com.
The success of the Casino Star Theatre Live Event Season is made possible by the generous support of local sponsorship partners, including Rocky Mountain Power, Julia and Roland Christensen, and Dr. Richard Nay. The season continues with performances by Colorado’s popular traditional Western music group, the Bar D Wranglers, on November 8 and Utah’s “Mr. Christmas,” Kurt Bestor, on December 18.
Join us on October 5 for a night of bluegrass with The Fabled Folks at the historic Casino Star Theatre. Admission is free and promises to be a musical evening you won’t want to miss.
