Odds & Ends: 2018 Mountain Music Series lineup at Steamboat Ski Area announced and more

Steamboat Ski Area releases 2018 Mountain Music Series lineup

The 2018 Mountain Music free concert series lineup has been announced by Steamboat Ski Resort.

"We've paired down the number of concerts and focused on two bands that we think our community and guests will be excited to see," said Loryn Kasten, Steamboat Ski and Resort Corp. senior communications manager.

The series kicks off July 13 with the Drew Emmitt Band, featuring members of Leftover Salmon. Emmitt is known as one of the most innovative mandolin players in the bluegrass music scene.

The Machine will take the stage Aug. 17. The New York-based group is a Pink Floyd tribute band, which has toured nationally and internationally for over 30 years, bringing with them an interstellar light and multimedia show.

The free concerts will take place on the Steamboat Stage in Gondola Square.
