Live music presented by The Blackberry Bushes Stringband!

The Blackberry Bushes are an acoustic Americana and bluegrass band whose sound falls somewhere between Gillian Welch and The Infamous Stringdusters. Their songs evoke the natural world, with themes of imperfection and impermanence. The instrumentation is precise and improvisational, reminiscent of the virtuosic bluegrass greats. The Bushes have that rare magic that allows them to fuse voices from many genres into an  acoustic instrumentation that retains distinct threads of sonic color. Elements of jazz, classical, pop, old-time and bluegrass saturate this modern string band sound that is buoyant, bold, and like their thorny namesake, rooted and growing, growing, growing.


You will find coupons on your rider bib that can be redeemed for beverages at both breweries, lunch at the finish line and a 2016 Bike-n-Brews souvenir. Please do not lose your coupons, as we cannot replace them.   Please note that 1 coupon can only be used at each brewery.
