High Country Hustle

Winners of the 2020 Winter Wondergrass Band  Contest


Brought together by a universal love of the mountains of Southwestern Colorado, High Country Hustle was birthed from the music that the San Juan Mountains inspire, bluegrass music. Four years and countless shows later, the gentlemen of High Country Hustle stand ready to shift into a new gear.


Two years after their self-titled debut, HCH is stepping back into to the studio to create their sophomore album. Recently recorded in Fort Collins at SwingFingers Studios and drawing on the producing talents of Jake Simpson from The Lil Smokies, this forthcoming compilation showcases the writing abilities of all four members and highlights the growth of the band over the last two years.


The High Country Hustle live show is really where you begin to ride the vibe with the band. Heartfelt songwriting and rolling melodies dominate their sound. Pair that with unaffected originals and a wide array of covers, HCH is guaranteed to put a little bounce in your boogie. From John Hartford and Sam Bush to Ween and Kid Cudi, variety is the spice of life and there is never a lack of flavor at a High Country Hustle show.


2022 begins a push in the HCH touring schedule. You’ll once again find them at all the Colorado staple venues: Cervantes, Mishawaka, and The Fox Theater, but be on the lookout to find them at exciting new venues and festivals!
