Existing comfortably in the tension between tradition and the musical frontier, Tucson five piece Run Boy Run blends bluegrass, folk and the old timey American vernacular with touches of classical and turn of the century details. Their new album Something to Someone has been praised by Performer Magazine, All Music Guide, PopMatters, The Guardian, and others. The band is brother and sister Matt Rolland (fiddle, guitar) and Grace Rolland (cello, vocals), sisters Bekah Sandoval Rolland (fiddle, vocals) and Jen Sandoval (mandolin, vocals) and bass player Jesse Allen. With three strong female voices, singing separately or in harmony, and deeply rooted familial connection to traditional American music, Run Boy Run didn’t come lately to their sound; it’s in their collective blood. The unique sound of the band is rooted in the traditional music of the Appalachian South, continuing a sense of innovation in traditional American music put forth by bands such as Nickel Creek, Crooked Still, and The Wailin’ Jennys. Run Boy Run continues this journey into music that is dynamic, orchestral, and brimming with beauty.

Bring your picnic, lawn chairs and the family for some great outdoor entertainment.

With a shared passion for beautiful melodies and deeply honest lyrics, Caitlin Cannon and Kate Willyard formed The Cannondolls, an Americana music project bridging a quirky yet emotionally-rich songwriting style with modern influences of Jason Isbell and Shovels and Rope, as well as the ghosts of heroes like Hank Williams, Woody Guthrie and Patsy Cline, all inspiring them to tell the truth and leave no word wasted.

Known for intricate harmonies akin to those of First Aid Kit, their eclectic sound draws in audiences and spits out fans. The duo added fiddle player Alissa Wolf in 2015 and often features guest musicians for special shows/venues. The not-to-be-missed live performances might treat fans to impromptu giveaways of handmade jewelry crafted from spent bullet casings, a batch of freshly baked cookies, or a knitted cozy for your coffee cup, offering glimpses into the quirky vulnerability and humor inherent in the band’s optimistic and refreshing musical process.​

Halden Wofford and the Hi*Beams’ throwback and stylish take on the honky tonk genre is a breath of fresh air amidst other wannabe retro acts. With some of the choicest players on the Front Range and a professionalism that is bar-none, the Hi*Beams landed themselves on the famed NPR show “A Prairie Home Companion” in recent years and Wofford’s distinct vocals continue to garner the band well-earned attention. - Marquee Magazine, Boulder, CO

One of Colorado's most popular and enduring acts, the Hi*Beams have celebrated 17 years together. Rootsy but not revivalist, the Hi*Beams' rollicking stage act features rocked-up Texas honky tonk and western swing, equal parts original and classic.

Dweezil Zappa "50 Years of Frank" Tour

Share by Email
Time: 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Date: Thursday August 10, 2017
Location: Community Concert Hall at Fort Lewis College
Category: Concert / Live Music
On his birth certificate, musician is listed under religion. His father was a gifted guitar virtuoso with an outlandish sense of humor. His teacher was Steve Vai. Oh yeah, he is also a fretboard whiz. It can only be Dweezil Zappa. Dweezil’s odd name has not been a barrier. If anything, it has helped him establish a unique identity. Perhaps that is what Frank had in mind for his progeny.

So, what do you do when your father is a famous singer-songwriter, electric six-string maestro, and all around legendary rock star? Dweezil Zappa’s answer was to go out and became a great guitar player in his own right. DZ’s first album, 1986’s Having a Bad Day, sounds like just what it is, a throwback to the '80s. In order to get a good dose of Dweezil, try his 1988 release, My Guitar Wants to Kill Your Mother.

Most impressive is Dweezil’s ongoing “Zappa Plays Zappa” project, referred to as just ZPZ, performing the music of Frank Zappa. Dweez has it covered, right down to the sound that his dad used. He cannot help it; jamming is in his blood.

Dweezil is a chip right off the old Zappa block! Don't miss this one!
