Curtiss O'Rorke Stedman, aka Cousin Curtiss, has moved from Placerville to Montrose, where he's recorded his latest album.  It delivers his signature "roots-stomp" sound -- think "the blues at bluegrass speeds." Curtiss shared his favorite track with us, a fiery ode to life on the road, titled "Furnace."

He'll perform at The Lariat in Buena Vista on Friday, then crosses the divide for a show Saturday at Denver's Globe Hall. His latest 2023 EP is out now.
