Blake will share his love of gospel music with the audience. A free will offering will be received to help communities in our state that are still recovering after recent natural disasters; like the wildfires and slides of the past few months. Fully 100 percent of the donations received will go to disaster relief.
Greg was born in southern West Virginia and acquired his love for bluegrass and mountain-flavored music. He moved to Conifer, Colorado, in February 2007 while taking a position as one of the pastors at Elk Creek Community Church. It is there he founded the Colorado-based group, Mountain Holler, before joining Jeff Scroggins & Colorado in 2011.
Blake was named Bluegrass Guitar Performer of the Year five years in a row by the Society for the Preservation of Bluegrass Music in America. He was nominated for that honor a total of nine times, as well as being nominated twice for Traditional Male Vocalist of the Year. His solo project, "Songs of Heart and Home", will be released soon.
