Contemporary jazz-grass band MilkDrive will start picking at 7 p.m. Monday, July 30, at Cavalcade, 201 E. Aspen St., in Fruita.

Members Dennis Ludiker, Brian Beken and Noah Jeffries met as youngsters while competing in the annual National Oldtime Fiddlers’ Contest in Weiser, Idaho, according to their website

Ludiker plays mandolin and harmony vocals, Beken plays fiddle and lead vocals, and Jeffries plays guitar and harmony vocals.

From there, the friends moved to Austin, Texas, where they played with a number of local musicians. Eventually, they met bass player extraordinaire Matt Mefford and formed MilkDrive.

The music of MilkDrive has been described as jamgrass, nu-folk or redneck gypsy jazz. Andrew Dansby of the Houston Chronicle called the MilkDrive repertoire “a virtuosic blast of bluegrassy string-band music.” They have a wide following of fans throughout the West.

The band has released two albums and recorded one live performance, most recently “Waves” with guest musicians, Noam Pikelny of Punch Brothers and Futureman from Bela Fleck and the Flecktones.

“Waves” was said to capture the band’s “distinctive acoustic experience marked by sophisticated arrangements and fierce musicianship.”

The show is free. Information is available at
