Take some old records out of your grandparents attic, marinate them in Rye Whiskey and cook them on a cast iron skillet inside a blacksmith forge and you’ll get The Great Contention!

The Great Contention came onto the music scene in Durango in August 2015. Featuring sweet harmonies and original songwriting the band’s members include Joshua Standard on guitar and vocals, Guy Ewing on bass, tenor banjo, guitar, and vocals, and Bruce Allsopp on guitar and vocals.

The Great Contention plays a healthy combination of original songs and various other folk, bluegrass, old time, and americana songs. They pride themselves on their songwriting and their showmanship.
