The Coloradas formed when Roy Davis and Bernie Nye, two songwriters with Waldo County roots, and a handful of virtuosic bluegrass musicians set out to create something meaningful in a gone-but-not-forgotten little apartment in Portland, Maine. The result was their self-titled debut, a collection of end-of-the-world bluegrass stomps and sad country ballads. Shortly after its release in the US, Germany-based label Hometown Caravan put it out on vinyl in Europe, and sent the band on two European tours. They haven’t stopped performing, writing, and recording since.
