The Mastersons: Crested Butte Music Festival
June 30, 2016 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm$30
Austin, Texas based husband and wife duo Chris Masterson and Eleanor Whitmore craft music with infectious melodies, instinctive harmonies and insightful lyrics. The daughter of an opera-singer mother and a folk singer/airline pilot father, Denton-born Eleanor began playing fiddle at the age of four. By the time he was 13, Houston-bred Chris was playing the blues in hometown clubs. The duo’s lilting songcraft and charismatic chemistry have already won over listeners around the world, thanks to the couple’s ongoing status as members of Steve Earle’s band The Dukes, their frequent opening sets for Earle, and their critically-lauded 2012 debut album, Birds Fly South. Their second album, Good Luck Charm is the Mastersons’ second album, in many ways it’s their first full-on collaboration: all of Good Luck Charm’s material was co-written by Chris and Eleanor, giving the material added depth as well as a powerful collective lyrical identity that’s matched by their expressive harmonies.
