Americana from Kort McCumber and High Road, Sun., July 29

Kort McCumber and band

An incredibly talented multi-instrumentalist, dedicated performer, prolific songwriter and gifted and expressive vocalist, Kort McCumber brings his band, High Road, playing Americana music steeped in tradition; honed over a musical lifetime and brought to life in the present, to Alamosa’s Cole Park, Sun., July 29 at 6pm, for a show in the Sundays at Six series of free concerts presented by the Alamosa Live Music Association (ALMA).

McCumber weaves a rich and diverse tapestry of musical experience, skill and energy into each and every show. The live experience is a must for any and every fan of on-the-road Americana. McCumber’s music is Americana at its best; equal parts rock, folk, country, blues and bluegrass, with a healthy dose of something fresh.

Writing and performing music feels like an extension of myself,” McCumber said. “I’m most comfortable in life when I am playing music. I love being able to share that with other musicians and with listeners. It makes me feel good and full and I always hope that will carry over to the crowd. That is my goal when I play. I love that transfer of energy.”

McCumber’s recordings have featured guests such as Vince Gill, Don Conoscenti and Sally Van Meter, among others.
