CB Unplugged Featuring Israel Nash
Head to Butte 66 for an après show you don’t want to miss! CB Unplugged is a free music series, sponsored by the Town of Mount Crested Butte, which features nationally touring artists in an intimate setting.
Welcome Israel Nash to Crested Butte Mountain Resort!
A native of the Ozark Mountains in Missouri, singer/songwriter Israel Nash Gripka blends elements of rock and country with gentle psychedelia and undercurrents of rural folk. The influence of '60s and '70s artists like Creedence Clearwater Revival, the Band, and Crosby, Stills & Nash could be heard in his Americana-inspired sound. His third album's rich, atmospheric country-rock sound drew comparisons to Neil Young and became a favorite at NPR and several influential American radio stations when it was released in the U.S. in 2014. Working again with London-based Loose Records, in 2015 he followed up with Silver Season, which followed a similar path while adding more psychedelic textures to his sound.
