RM Diary #236: Rocky Mountain High
It is such sweet luxury to escape to the Rocky's for a summery weekend of shows. We started out just north of Colorado Springs at the Tri-Lakes Center for the Arts in Palmer Lake, CO. This is a sweet little concert series and we had the formidable Melody Walker and Jacob Groopman open the show. These guys are fantastic! We even had a fan from Westcliffe show up with 19 friends and tailgate in the parking lot!!!
Saturday we drove to Snowmass to play at the annual Aspen Camp for the Deaf picnic and concert. John Denver was the first musician to headline this event back in the 70's, and there was a fantastic John Denver tribute band closing the show. We are pretty big Denver fans and so we delighted in belting out "Rocky Mountain High!"
Sunday we were invited for a private party/ fundraiser for the Crested Butte Arts Council. The stage was at the idyllic home of Joel Benisch (longtime fan of Red Molly), and what a backdrop we had! Free the Honey, a sweet female trio from the area, opened the show. For supper we feasted on lamb stew and naan. Whose life is this anyway?
Thanks to all our hosts and to our friends and fans!
Next stop, Montana!!!
