Eli Slocumb (17) and Grace Kuch (14) play a unique blend of Blues and Bluegrass – or as they call it, “Bluesgrass.” They got their start in the same modified Suzuki violin and mandolin program at their elementary school in Fort Collins, CO. Both are multi-instrumentalists, playing guitar, mandolin, and other instruments. Eli has continued to pursue progressive bluegrass, sitting in with many professional bands and playing in his own self-titled band, which released a full album in 2017. Grace chose a path in Blues music. She was voted as the Best Youth Performer 2017 by the Colorado Blues Society (CBS). She has represented the CBS at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis, TN twice, and has performed at the King Biscuit Blues Festival in Helena, AK among many others across the nation. Grace has her own self-titled blues band and they play regionally at events including the Bohemian Nights New West Fest in Fort Collins and the Greeley Blues Jam Festival. She is releasing a full live Album from her 2017 Main Stage performance at GBJ in 2018. Eli and Grace reconnected their music at the 2016 Mid-Winter Bluegrass Festival, and subsequently started playing duo shows in Northern Colorado inclusing a set on the Singer-Songwriter Stage at New West Fest.
