Bio

Burn it Blue is an acoustic trio of multi-instrumentalists with roots in bluegrass, old-time, Celtic, country, jazz, and rock and roll. Featuring John Bush (guitar, mandolin, fiddle, vocals), Shaun Nicklin (banjo, dobro, vocals), and Francisco Prado (double bass, vocals), the band became friends at jams in the vibrant bluegrass scene of Golden, Colorado and formed in 2014. Ready to perform for any occasion, Burn it Blue is often joined by veteran Front Range fiddler Jay Genender for a more traditional bluegrass set.

Entertaining audiences with a fast-paced, exciting and humorous live show, Burn it Blue combines original music with covers of traditional and modern popular songs for a unique interpretation of the traditional string band genre. The band’s insightful, honest, and catchy songs are executed with intensity and feature inspired instrumental breaks and improvisation. With an extensive repertoire of songs and instruments to work with, Burn it Blue takes risks on stage and every performance is a one-of-a-kind experience!
