Rapidgrass embodies the notion that nature, and particularly mountains, can bring out the best in art, and the group has dedicated much of its creative energy into bringing that art back to the people of the mountains. Rapidgrass focuses on travel to mountain towns and inspires mountain people and athletes around the globe. Their music is motivated by and made for those who find peace in the mountains. They focus their energy on outdoor mountain lifestyle/culture events. Focusing their travels to mountain towns has also given them a great palate of mountain music styles to draw from including styles from North America, France, Italy, Russia, Tibet, Argentina, and Ireland. The full-time lineup includes Mark Morris (guitar, lead vocals); Coleman Smith (violin); Charlie Parker Mertens (upright bass); and Alex Johnstone (mandolin, vocals). Billy Cardine (dobro) can be seen often with the band but is not a full-time member. This Colorado ensemble uses classical, gypsy, bluegrass, pop, swing and other world rhythms to create what is, and can only be described of as, Rapidgrass. Rapidgrass has had the pleasure of playing mountain music throughout Colorado, Alaska, the lower 48, Ireland, Hungary, Scotland, Poland and the European Alps.
