I had the opportunity to see Canyon Collected for the first time last night. They performed at Park House down on Colfax, and they jammed out some great music.
Canyon Collected is comprised of Oliver Adams (singer, songwriter, guitarist), Leon Elam (banjo, vocals), Tia Martini (ukulele), and Jake Heidrich (mandolin).
I'm always impressed when all members of a band sing. They all took turns singing lead on at least one song.
Each band member had phenomenal solos throughout the set. I have seriously never heard anyone play the ukulele like Tia Martini.
Last night was the first show of their new tour. They start in Colorado, head out to San Francisco, then up the Northwest coast, and then over towards Montana. You can find their updated tourdate list here.
