In 2016, up-and-coming bluegrass act Part & Parcel thought it would be fun to get some local Colorado-based artists together and host a charitable night of musical collaborations, during a night dubbed the “Corduroy Classic.” On Friday night, Denver, CO’s Cervantes’ Other Side hosted the third annual Corduroy Classic, which saw performances from host band Part & Parcel, in addition to Railroad Earth’s Tim Carbone, Emily Clark, members of the Kitchen Dwellers, Sweet Lillies, Tenth Mountain DivisionAnalog Son, and the Wilkolak Brothers. Local Colorado band Liver Down By The River handled the evening’s opening duties.

Part & Parcel’s third annual Corduroy Classic helped raise money on behalf of RIP Medical Debt. The nonprofit makes it easy for donors to make an impactful difference in the lives of those struggling with medical debt. Due to the fact that they are able to purchase debt for pennies on the dollar, RIP Medical Debt allows donors to maximize the value of their contribution. For every $1,000 Part & Parcel raised, RIP Medical Debt will be able to eliminate nearly $10,000 worth of medical debt.

Following a set of Part & Parcel’s original tunes, the five-piece opened up their collaborative “Corduroy Classic” set with a cover of Pink Floyd’s “In The Flesh?”, as Tenth Mountain Division’s Campbell Thomas lent a helping hand on keyboards. Up next was a take on Sturgill Simpson’s “Keep It Between The Lines”, which included Thomas and bandmate Andrew Cooney, as well Matt Wilkolak, Mark Wilkolak, and Mama Magnolia’s Alex Cazet on horns.

Part & Parcel continued with their spot-on song selection, delivering a cover of Cake’s “Love You Madly”, with Emily Clark leading the way on vocals. The five-piece then invited up the Sweet Lillies’ Becca Bisque for “Waiting For A Superman”, before the Kitchen Dwellers’ Shawn Swain joined on a cover of Modest Mouse’s “Paper Thin Walls”. Railroad Earth’s Tim Carbone joined the party for “Get No Better”, and stayed onstage to help with “Hammer and Nails”, “New Speedway Boogie”, and “Canned Heat”. Part & Parcel brought the collaborative set to a close with Little Feat’s “On Your Way Down” into the Talking Heads’ “Girlfriend Is Better”. The band came back out to encore a cover of Tyler Childers’ “Whitehouse Road”, before ending the evening with the Grateful Dead’s “And We Bid You Goodnight”.

Luckily, photographer Alan Westman was there to capture mesmerizing images of Part & Parcel’s Corduroy Classic. Check out a gallery of photos below.
