Flume Canyon Boys
The Flume Canyon Boys, formerly known as, Halfway to Heaven started as a project in the Sangre De Cristo mountains of New Mexico in the summer of 2011, playing for groups of scouts at Philmont Scout Ranch. The band’s debut album “100 Miles” released on April 27th of 2012. As recent residents of Durango they are working on getting their foot in the door of the local music community. The band plays original and traditional old time and bluegrass music featuring: Joshua Standard on guitar and lead vocals, Timmy Borden on bass and vocals, Evan Coombs on banjo (not pictured), Jeremy Ralstin on guitar and vocals, and Art Woodard on mandolin.
