South To Cedars (STC) is a four-piece acoustic Americana band from Colorado. Described as a powerhouse of tight vocal harmony and acoustic instrumentation, South To Cedars blends elements of folk, bluegrass, and rock, to deliver an original brand of genre-bending tunes that honor a variety of musical styles and influences. While original songs run the gamut between traditional singer/songwriter & modern acoustic roots-rock, familiar cover tunes are creatively rebirthed for audiences to hear them in an entirely new way.
Since their 2015 debut, the band has performed for festivals and venues throughout the state; some of which include: The historic Dicken's Opera House, The Walnut Room, Boulder Weekly's "Best of Boulder", The Loveland Foote Lagoon Concert Series, KGNU After FM LIVE Kabaret, FoCoMX, Wellington Women of Summer Concerts, Town of Mead Summer Concerts and more.
South to Cedars released their debut album, Sunny State in December 2016 and is currently in the process of recording their second album of all original songs written by bandleader, guitarist & singer/songwriter, Ben Haugestuen.
