Based in Manitou Springs, the Manitou Strings is an eclectic, band featuring Americana, old -school classics and genre-jumping covers that run the gamut of alt country, folk, and honky tonk, plus some good ol’ roots Rock ‘n Roll. Powerful vocals, excellent harmonies, and a few unique original songs, round out this local favorite. The band is entertaining and has a lot of fun that they just can’t hide.

Sometimes it's just fun to play informally in a jam setting rather than a on-stage performance. Join us on Sunday afternoons, 3 to 6 p.m. for a very informal live music jam at Trails End Taproom, located in Colorado Springs. Lots of bluegrass tunes--but we do get a little wild and sometimes throw some Bob Dylan songs in, plus the usual Gillian Welch, Merle Haggard, and John Prine standards. Come on down.
