There are many excellent, progressive string band and blue grass musicians, that come from the Colorado "front range" these days. The Mile Markers are one of my favorite of these new groups.
Julie Stratton is the lead singer and primary song writer for the group. She is backed up by Bevin Foley on violin, Nicki Handy on bass, and Sal Clark on banjo.
This performance was back in August of 2011, at a benefit and festival put on by WHYS—Eau Claire, Wisconsin's, listener sponsored, community radio station.

I personally enjoyed their new song Medicine Man.
