Born in California, and spending the last 15 years in Colorado, Nick Dunbar is no stranger to the wild west and the culture that comes with it. Nick’s captivating debut solo album “Little Country” was released in early 2022, and is stacked with some of Colorado’s finest musicians. On the record he creatively intertwines the classic Western swing and Honky Tonk sounds of greats like Lefty Frizzell, Bob Wills and Ernest Tubb, with the country western traditions of Merl Haggard and Willie Nelson. His songwriting is playful and humorous but also honest and cathartic .
After playing mandolin in touring bands and pounding the pavement playing Honky Tonks and Dive bars all over the country, Nick decided to slow down to build a life and family with his wife. He began farming, raising livestock and growing vegetable and flower gardens. With three kids and a farm full of chores and animals, he is finding some solace in this more sustainable lifestyle. But Nick continues to write and perform as often as he can. His shows are filled with hot licks and witty banter, and no two shows are alike. He is very entertaining and it is hard to not notice his mega-watt smile and the sparkle in his eyes. With wheels already in motion for another album, be sure to keep your eye on this one!
You can listen to his album "Little Country" on all streaming platforms. You can check his schedule at nickdunbar.com to go see him live. You can also catch him most Thursday's at Burnt Mills with his string Band. One of our area's best kept secrets. Bringing together some of the best musicians the area has to offer, it is always a treat to see him live. Check out his new video Hanging by a Thread.
