Music on the Mountain – Jackson Emmer & The Swing State Ramblers
August 8 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Jackson Emmer & The Swing State Ramblers (Americana): Based in Carbondale, Colorado, Jackson Emmer is an award-winning country, folk, and Americana singer and songwriter. He has appeared in Rolling Stone, NPR, the Cannes Film Festival, and one more than 150 radio stations worldwide. While he’s mostly known for intimate solo performances, Emmer periodically teams up with the finest country and jazz musicians from across Colorado to perform as The Swing State Ramblers. Their sound is smooth, danceable, and classic honkytonk, more akin to music you’d hear in a 1950s Texas dancehall than anything on the radio today. Their sets feature virtuosic, gritty, instrumental performances, full of old-school bite and twang. That said, each concert is truly built around the songs. Tunes by Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, and Willie Nelson are strung together seamlessly with Emmer’s original compositions.
