Born in a distillery in Durango, CO, two-time Telluride Bluegrass band contest finalists Stillhouse Junkies play a delirious, head-spinning mixture of original roots, blues, funk, swing, and bluegrass music. With all three band members sharing lead vocal and songwriting duties, the Junkies conjure a wide range of tonal landscapes that pay tribute to the iconic sounds of Gillian Welch, the Allman Brothers, Tim O'Brien, the Wood Brothers, John Hiatt, and countless others while breaking new musical ground with their genre-bending original material. Stillhouse Junkies are proud to be official Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival and 2020 IBMA World of Bluegrass showcase artists.

From the acoustic-rich hills of Colorado comes the accomplished alt. Americana band Taarka. Much like the sizzle of spices and the vibrating of strings implied by its Indian name, the band’s sound embodies passion, energy, and taste. Derived from members’ diverse influences – bluegrass, pop rock, folk, old-time, Gypsy-Jazz, and Celtic – the band ignites audiences with music that SF Weekly called “a collision of Django Reinhardt and David Grisman.”

An established performer at prominent festivals nationwide (High Sierra, Pagosa Folk n' Bluegrass, Mendocino Music Festival, Berkeley World Music Festival), Taarka continues to expand its appeal – recent tours have taken the band abroad to Spain and Canada – and its eclectic catalogue. Its latest album, Fading Mystery (March 10, 2017), is an organic collection of original music with gypsy jazz, pop and traditional inspirations. Featured tracks include the driving “Carried Away,” the jolly, folk-leaning “Polyamorous Polly Ann,” and the ethereal title track.


Its seventh studio album to date, Faded Mystery was recorded live near the banks of eastern Virginia’s Potomac River and masterfully produced by its own David Tiller (vocals, mandolin, electric guitar), who founded Taarka in 2001 with wife and musical partner Enion Pelta-Tiller (vocals, violin). Members also include award-winning jazz upright bassist Troy Robey (bass) and guitar prodigy Mike Robinson (guitar, vocals).

A musician and performer from his youth, Tiller is a master of mandolin, bass, tenor guitar, and bouzouki. Pelta-Tiller was born in San Francisco and raised in Oakland, Calif. A classically trained five-string violinist and vocalist, Pelta-Tiller has a voice that Grateful Web hailed, “reminiscent of Regina Spektor, with the vulnerability and slight hint of defiance that the comparison implies.”  

After meeting in New York City, the young couple moved west as Taarka and, since 2006, has made their home in the music scene of Lyons, Colorado. “Their voices sound fantastic together …,” wrote No Depression regarding the great talent of this most musical duo, “Enion is a marvelous violin player, and David is her equal on mandolin.”

As a band, they have shared the stage with artists like Grateful Dead, Phish, Yonder Mountain String Band, Sufjan Stevens, and The Decembrists. Just this year, Taarka was featured in the Rocky Mountain Folks Festival and as part of the renowned “Bluegrass Underground.”

Taarka’s previous releases include See Gather for a Winter Garden (2010), Martian Picture Soundtrack (2007), Even Odd Bird (2004), Taarka (2002), Making Tracks Home (2015) and Adventures in Vagabondia (January 2013), from which the powerful acoustic rock instrumental, “A Whole New You,” was chosen and included as part of the soundtrack to “1971,” a nationally released, feature-length Maximum Pictures documentary.

Taarka’s live shows are euphonious affairs by pickers who are “gravity-defying in their dexterity” (R2 Magazine, UK). From their cords and from their strings, they envelop audiences with energy and emotion enough to light any fire.

Durango's first grain-to-glass distillery since prohibition

At Durango Craft Spirits we mash, distill, age and bottle in our downtown Durango distillery using only Colorado grain. Our spirits are created using a non-GMO white corn from the Ute Mountain Utes in Towaoc, Colorado, while our remaining grains come to us from the Colorado Malting Company in Alamosa, Colorado.

Our Tasting Room offers a varied cocktail menu featuring our Soiled Doves Vodka, Mayday Moonshine and Cinder Dick Straight Colorado Bourbon. Our spirits and cocktails share stories of Durango’s vibrant history. Hard work and ingenuity are qualities rooted within Durango’s threadwork; those same qualities show through in our spirits and cocktails.

FAQ

Ticketing and Seating

The General Admission area is located at the east end of the parking lot (in front of the Distillery entrance).

This section is under a different liquor license and guests in this area can only purchase drinks from the Distillery bar.

Seating in this area is on a first come first serve basis. Assigned seating is not available in this section.

Preferred seating is located closer to the stage and comes with a table, chairs and full access to both bars.

Due to COVID restrictions with regards to maximum occupancy and social distancing, we are using this model to support safe outdoor concert practices.

Tickets are not refundable but are 100% transferable. You can give or sell your ticket to someone else if you cannot attend the event.   

When you buy a table (for 2, 4 or 6 people), the buyer of the table should forward the downloadable ticket to the other attendees. All attendees will check in with the same ticket.

Not a problem! You can arrive at any moment as long as the attendees present the ticket or give the buyer's name at the front desk.

Food and Drinks

You can bring your own food in, but bringing your own drinks (other than water) is forbidden during the event as it violates our liquor permit.

Because Durango Craft Spirits and iAM MUSISC have different liquor licenses, we cannot allow anyone sitting within the premises of the Distillery to have drinks from the iAM MUSIC Bar. 

Food will not be available but feel free to bring your own food or food from other businesses.

COVID 19

We will be following all the most recent San Juan Basin Health guidelines
