Two Great Bands for the Price of One – This Saturday at Ivywild School

Rocky Mountain Highway, the Black Rose Acoustic Society and Bristol Brewing are thrilled to welcome two nationally touring bluegrass bands to the Ivywild School gym on Saturday, April 23.


Fans of the MeadowGrass Music Festival will remember last year’s standout performance by The Stray Birds, and the trio recently added a fourth member – percussionist / instrumentalist / singer Shane Leonard. The Birds will release a new album later this year but you can be the first to see the new lineup this weekend!

Sharing the spotlight with The Stray Birds will be Michigan’s Lindsay Lou & the Flatbellys who have won a loyal following at Front Range Barbeque in Old Colorado City. Check out the official video for their song “Everything Changed.” Read more

The Haunted Windchimes’ sound draws from traditional folk and American roots music. The songs have a vintage quality, as if they might have been written yesterday or 75 years ago. Grounded in honeyed harmonies and spirited pickin’, it lies in a nowhere land between distinct styles: It’s not quite bluegrass or blues or country. Still, there are elements of all those in songs that paint pictures of empty train stations and nights of passing a jug of moonshine around. It’s the vocal harmonies that really set them apart, a three-headed juggernaut of Desirae Garcia (ukulele), Chela Lujan (banjo) and Inaiah Lujan (guitar). “When their voices blend, it is nothing short of beautiful,” writes Bill Reed of The Colorado Springs Gazette. The sound is often moody and melancholy, but it is always deeply affecting. That sound is embroidered by the instrumental mastery of Mike Clark (harmonica, guitar and mandolin).

On the group’s 2006 debut EP “Verse/Visa”, The Haunted Windchimes presented what Denver Post journalist, Eryc Eyl, called “a beautiful chamber pop sound.” However, with 2010’s “Honey Moonshine,” the band “perfected an old-timey hoedown sound, executed with passion and precision.” May 2011, the band released “Live at the Western Jubilee,” a celebration of its career so far. Recorded in December 2010 at the Western Jubilee Warehouse, a legendary Colorado Springs venue, the record’s 13 tracks capture the five musicians in peak form in front of an appreciative audience. Their latest album, Out With the Crow, awarded album of the year by The Colorado Springs Independent in 2012, reflects “a barrel-aged maturation that punctuates their moonshine roots. The album and the band’s public performances make clear that The Haunted Windchimes aim to rekindle the flames of Americana music for generations to come,” writes Angus Edward (No Depression).

Check out this photo of historic Garden of the Gods before color photos were even a thing!

Garden of the Gods was founded in 1859 by two surveyors, from then Denver City, and suggested that it would be a "capital place for a beer garden".

Wonder why that never happened?
