2015 Ridgway Summer Concert Series, Week 2 - Humming House with Intuit The spotlight on Nashville, with its musical values and timeless traditions, is currently bright. And no band embodies what’s right about 21st century Nashville more completely than the quintet known as Humming House.

Week 3 of the Ridgway Summer Concert Series Orgone is a synergy of eight musicians, at the core of which are keyboardist Dan Hastie and guitarist Sergio Rios, who have been chiseling their distinctively timeless sound since their teens. Each band member shines in his own right, but together their chemistry results in a sweeping sound more tenacious than the sum of its considerable parts. Bringing fresh blood to the band is Adryon de León, a lightning rod whose bold, graceful vocals elevate...
