Born in the fertile mountains of Colorado, Tenth Mountain Division (TMD) headlines the event at 5:00 p.m. Tenth Mountain Division is a Denver-based outfit by way of the Colorado Rockies. The group consists of five members—Andrew Cooney (Bass/Guitar), Campbell Thomas (Piano/Percussion/Keys), Tyler Gwynn (Drums), MJ Ouimette (Guitars), Winston Heuga (Mandolin)—who found unity through their love of music and natural surroundings. While Gwynn holds down the heartbeat of their sound on drums, the rest of the crew pitches in on vocals in addition to their menagerie of instrumentation. TMD has heavily toured throughout their home state, offering reverberation and acclaim felt throughout the country. This helped nab performances at Summer Camp Music Festival and support roles for acts like Leftover Salmon.
Leading into the headliner, is The Turntable Revue at 1:00 p.m. and The Royal Aces Band at 3:00 p.m.
