This Thursday: Catie Curtis & Ellis Paul

  #
We cannot believe that there are still tickets left for this week's concert.  Grab a couple of friends and come join us?!  We have 2 headliners here at the house on January 21st:  Catie Curtis & Ellis Paul.  

Catie, described by The New Yorker as "a folk goddess" has been here before and we love her.  We were especially taken with her latest CD.   Catie has a way of giving voice to those feelings within you that rarely see the light of day.   Her lyrics are powerful and her voice ethereal.    You will marvel at her ability to connect with the audience.  

Ellis will be at FHC for the first time - but he seems to have played with everyone whose been here before!   The New York Times has this to say about our second headliner: 
"Despite his success and sense of history, Mr. Paul remains an artist with his eye on the future and an interest in discovering the transformative potential in his music." - The New York Times

Both these artists share a streak of social consciousness that keeps me turning back to them time and time again.    We look forward to another incredible night up on the hill in late January.  Join us, please?

This will be the last concert for about two months because Whitney is taking a sabbatical from work.   We hope to see you here at Friends House Concerts this Thursday!




Eilen Jewell & Her Band here This Coming Friday!

  #
We don't know if we've ever had an artist whose songs have been featured on so many different TV shows?!   In the spirit of IndyGive - we will offer 6 spaces for dinner with the artist before the concert on November 20.  The first 6 people to donate $75 to Rocky Mountain Highway through IndyGive will be around for Marc's famous pre-concert dinner with the artists.  You still need to buy your normal concert ticket through Eventbrite, but the dinner and the experience are worth so much more than $75!

Eilen Jewell and her talented band will be joining us this coming Friday!   We've always loved having her here at the house and if you take a listen to this NPR interview with her, you'll get a feeling for what it's like to spend the evening with her. 

Crafting a unique style that mixes poetic ballads with swinging rockers, Eilen Jewell ranks among the best in the Americana genre today.  As the reigning Queen of the Minor Key, Jewell leads a tight quartet who blend influences of surf-noir, early blues, rockabilly, and 1960s era rock and roll. Over the course of a decade, Eilen and her band have toured relentlessly. They have performed for legions of fans from Boston to Boise and Madrid to Melbourne at festivals, theaters, rock clubs and coffeehouses. Eilen's fans marvel at her warmth, unique wit, and onstage humor alongside her beautiful songs and fiery performances.

 

Jewell's fifth studio album, Sundown Over Ghost Town was released May 26th (Signature Sounds). The album was recorded with Eilen's longtime road band in her hometown of Boise, and is composed of twelve stunning, original compositions that feature some of her most personal stories yet.  We hope you'll join us...




Aaaahhhh! Tickets For Willy Are Going Fast!

  #
It looks like Willy is going to sell out, yet again, at the house.   AND, for those of you longing for a Willy fix - we will offer a limited number of dinners with the man before the concert for a donation of $75 to RMH through IndyGive.   That's right, buy your normal Willy ticket on Eventbrite and then donate a minimum of $75 (no maximum on this!) to RMH through IndyGive and send me your donation receipt RIGHT AWAY and you can enjoy Marc's cooking and Willy's company for dinner. 

"Willy Porter is perhaps best known as a down tuned six string wonder, but as a singer and a writer, and as a showman, he merits equal regard."
Puremusic.com

And the six string wonder will return here in December to help us celebrate the closing days of the IndyGive! campaign.   The best quote I've ever seen about our friend Willy comes from Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull who said "Thank goodness he doesn't play the flute!" 

Willy needs little introduction to long time friends of FHC, but if you are not familiar with his work, please check out his videos here





Free Beer AND Moonshine!?

  #


We completely forgot to mention that if you donate at least $25 to Rocky Mountain Highway during the IndyGive Campaign, you will receive a free drink at 300 Days of Shine AND a beer on us at MeadowGrass.  Click here and donate today!

We, Rocky Mountain Highway, are now a stand alone non-profit organization as of October 1st!   All these years that you have wanted to support Friends House Concerts with donations of money or items?   You can now do that and have it count as a tax deductible donation!   And we truly do need your help this year.   We feel that this is the Go Big Or Go Home year for MeadowGrass and you can help us over the tipping point.

We have many events lined up over the course of the next 2 months and at every event there will be raffles to win prizes and we will make it easy to donate to this year's IndyGive.   These events start TONIGHT over at Ivywild with a Dance for Peace!
One of the coolest things for me about being involved in RMH has been the wider exposure to bands as opposed to individual artists.   The Yarn concert in December will be incredible.   Check them out.

Please find it in yourselves to donate to RMH, c/o IndyGive.    We are grateful for your continued support of great live music in intimate venues!




12 Hour Concert And Then To Colorado!

  #


Peter Mulvey just finished playing a 12 hour concert on the streets of Boston and then jumped on a plane for the Lamplighter series concerts here in Colorado.   What an incredible soul!  Too many of you are going to miss out on Friday's concert here at the house.  Come on, how often do you get to see 3 creative geniuses collaborate right in front of you?  Join us Friday night here at the house.   Click the link below for tickets!

Welcoming the 2015-16 FHC Season

  #
The concerts this year are going to be epic!  They are not ALL set in stone, but the season is shaping up very nicely.    After we open with Peter Mulvey and the Lamplighter Sessions, we will slip quickly in to a very busy November and December with several concerts to benefit Rocky Mountain Highway including Willy Porter and others yet to be named.  

After the first of the year, we will see Catie Curtis & Ellis Paul share the stage here in January and Steve Poltz should be here in February.   It's going to be a fun season - we hope to see you here each and every concert!





From Club Passim in Boston to FHC

  #
Peter Mulvey has more than a decade of experience putting together a series of artist in the round concerts in Milwaukee and Boston.   He brings them to Colorado for the first time next month to open our next season at Friends House Concerts.    Join us for an evening of triple the music here up on the hill.   Peter has been busy as ever and made the Los Angeles Times this year.

Peter Mulvey will be joined by John Statz and Danielle Ate The Sandwich.   I am excited to see how these three interact on stage.   The sessions that I've been able to hear afford the audience a glimpse within the songwriting profession.   Somewhere out there is a recording of Willy Porter and Peter Mulvey in this same type of session - it was wonderful.   Please come join us for the season opener and check out the new digs!

Great news for fans of music in the Pikes Peak Region!   The PPCF and The Independent chose Rocky Mountain Highway, the organization that brings you MeadowGrass and Friends House Concerts, to be part of their 2015 IndyGive! class.   We will host several events to raise money for Rocky Mountain Highway during the IndyGive in November and December.    We hope to see you at one of them!





New Digs!

  #
Friends!   The house is open!   We missed the ability to debut the kitchen to the Yaks last week, but the kitchen is open and ready for business for Friday's concert with Erika & Lisa.   We REALLY hope that you can join us up on the hill for the concert this Friday night.   The view is awesome from here...






Erika & Lisa Return to FHC

  #


The tight harmonies and red hot guitar playing of Lisa & Erika will be back here for the first time in three years.  The duo has cut back significantly on touring these days, so we're just happy to have them here.   The best intro we can give is a look at this video.   Lisa's smooth jazzy voice blends incredibly with Erika's world inspired music for an unforgettable evening.  

Friday July 10th is going to be a very special evening as it combines the magic of music and Lucketts with the celebration of FINALLY getting a kitchen worthy of Marc's culinary skills.   Join us up on the hill for a summer evening that will linger pleasantly in your mind for years to come.

Erika Luckett & Lisa Ferraro
Date:  Friday, July 10, 2015
Time:   7:30 PM
Doors Open:  6:45 PM
