Tray Wellington, the 2019 IBMA Momentum Instrumentalist of the Year, performs for free on Mt. Crested Butte’s Red Lady Stage. This free concert is made possible by a generous grant from the Recording’s Industry Music Performance Trust Fund.
Growing up on Flint Hill Rd., musician Trajan “Tray” Wellington was destined to be attracted to the 5-string banjo. Tray’s love for music bloomed at an early age while he listened to his grandpa play diverse styles of music. From learning traditional bluegrass to studying diverse genres such as jazz, progressive bluegrass, blues, rock, and more, Tray has gone on to play with some of the most accomplished musicians in the world. Before reaching the age of 21, he received a number of awards and accolades, including two awards from IBMA — 2019 IBMA Momentum Instrumentalist of the Year and 2019 Momentum Band of the Year (with Cane Mill Road).
Rising music star Jessica Lynn is being hailed by press around the world as a “rocket force.” With a relentless international touring schedule of 14+ countries, a pair of Top 40/Top 50 singles on country radio, and three full length concert television specials airing nationwide, the New York singer songwriter is quickly becoming a household name.
Sharing stages with some of the most iconic names in the business (Brad Paisley, Keith Urban, Loretta Lynn, ZZ Top, Richard Marx, Lonestar, Montgomery Gentry, and others), her dynamic, high-energy performances showcasing her powerful voice and instrumental talents playing piano, guitar, harmonica, and drums have garnered rave reviews from critics worldwide while building a huge and loyal global fan base.
With a total of 15 charting releases on iTunes in 17 different countries within the last few years, Jessica has been featured on Billboard, CMT, and in American Songwriter Magazine. She was also recently named a Top 40 Livestreamer of 2020 by the global ticketing reporting giant Pollstar, as well as a Top 25 Livestreamer of the Year in 2021.
