The New Christy Minstrels
Still Under the Direction of Randy Sparks

April 26, 2019, 7 p.m.

Because of a death in the New Christy Minstrels family, their concert (previously scheduled for December 15, 2018) is being postponed until April 26, 2019. Tickets already purchased will apply toward the new date. Thank you for your kind consideration.

           (This is NOT a tribute band.)  The New Christy Minstrels® (officially known as The New Christy Minstrels®, Still Under the Direction of Randy Sparks) is an American large-ensemble folk music group founded by Randy Sparks in 1961, and currently in concerts across the country, still going, better than ever with 100% record of at least one standing ovation per concert since Randy Sparks revised the group with the current line up of stellar entertainers!
From their beginnings as prominent figures in the early-1960s U.S. folk revival, the group recorded over 20 albums and had several hits, including Green, Green, Saturday Night, Today, Denver, and This Land Is Your Land. Their 1962 debut album, Presenting The New Christy Minstrels won a Grammy Award and sat in the Billboard charts for two years.  Available at their live concerts are the current CDs:  The Greatest Hits CD, RECYCLED; their most recently recorded CD with this group of performers,  NICE TIME TO BE ALIVE,  and a rare find in the recordings from the Sony Record vaults –  the RAMBLIN’  Extended CD.
           The group has launched the musical careers of several musicians, including Kenny Rogers, Gene Clark, Kim Carnes, and Barry McGuire.  No performing group has ever spawned so many successful musical careers as the New Christy Minstrels®.  “For over fifty years we have been the best talent show ever,” says Sparks. ” We still are.”  Don’t miss any opportunity to see this stellar group in concert!  For their history and present accomplishments visit www.thenewchristyminstrels.com

Advance Tickets: Members $25, Non-Members $27
Day of Show: Members $28, Non-members $30
Reserved Seating in First Five Rows: Additional $10 Per Ticket.

More than 10 years have passed since a Walk to Defeat ALS event in Colorado Springs, and we can’t wait for you to join us in bringing the Walk back to your community.
 
In 2018, we said goodbye to celebrities diagnosed with ALS, including physicist Stephen Hawking and Stephen Hillenburg, the creator of SpongeBob Squarepants. But there are so many more people in our communities battling this disease. They are your neighbors, your coworkers, your friends, or your family.

The ALS Association Rocky Mountain Chapter strives to fight ALS and empower people living with ALS today. We need your help in fighting ALS on all fronts: fundraising, advocacy, and medical research. By working together, we help to support families affected by ALS, expand care, and develop better treatments.
 
Most of all, we urgently need to find the cure for ALS. The Southern Colorado Walk to Defeat ALS unifies families, friends, communities, companies, and YOU in striding toward that goal.

World Renowned Cellist
Performing Live at the Tri-Lakes Center for the Arts

“Calling Rufus Cappadocia a cello player is like calling Willie Mays an outfielder. Mingus would be proud of him. Cappadocia destroys any preconceptions you may have about cello as a classical instrument. He plays by his own rules and envelopes you with his own unique sound and style.” — AMAZON.COM

Cappadocia plays a five-string cello and an eight-string quartertone guitar, both of his own design. He performs regularly with the Bethany and Rufus Roots Quartet (USA / Niger / Haiti); Bonga Jean-Baptiste’s Vodou Drums of Haiti (Haiti);  Peter, Bethany & Rufus (USA);  Ilham featuring Gaida Hinawi (Syria);  Vishal Vaid Ghazal Ensemble (India); Paradox Trio (USA / Macedonia); and Stellamara (USA); as well as his Unaccompanied Solo Performances.

“I’ve studied a lot of different musical vocabularies,” Rufus Cappadocia explains. “And I’ve played with musicians literally from around the world. But, in the end, music all comes down to a single source. You can be pulled this way or that, but essentially it all converges on the same location. Every doorway leads back to one place.” He pauses before adding with a laugh, “I guess you could say my whole life has been an attempt at getting to that place.” Meet cellist Rufus Cappadocia, a multi-lingual musician, performer, composer and recording artist of incredible range and diversity. From the modalities of Middle Eastern, West African and pan-European folk forms to blues, rock and jazz along the way, adding elements American roots, Mediterranean textures, and Caribbean percussion for good measure, Cappadocia’s effortless and natural embrace of all music is awe-inspiring.

After living and performing throughout Europe, Cappadocia relocated to New York where he set up a more or less permanent base, intent, in his words, “on playing with as many different musicians as I could. If my travels had taught me anything, it was the value of playing with other artists.” In short order Cappadocia joined the multi-faceted jazz ensemble, The Paradox Trio, though the nomadic artist was embraced by virtually every artist and musical community he sought out, including such widely assorted musicians as Celtic pioneer Seamus Eagan and master Haitian drummer “Bonga” Jean-Baptiste with the Vodou Drums of Haiti; musical polymath Ross Daly, who was instrumental in introducing Cappadocia to Middle Eastern and Balkan music; Vishal Vaid, a virtuoso Indian Ghazal vocalist and guitarist David Fiuczynski, with whom he formed the Eastern Modal fusion group, Kif.

Add to this list such marquee names as Aretha Franklin, Odetta, Cheick Tidiane Seck, and Vernon Reid, former guitarist of Living Color – all of whom Cappadocia has worked with – and his reputation as a world-class artist with a world-spanning musical reach makes perfect sense. And, like that list, it’s a reputation that continues to grow as the cellist forges new alliances in the most unlikely musical domains.

Which, in the final analysis, is the whole point. “I look back on everything I’ve been doing for the last twenty years,” Cappadocia concludes, “and can see the way it’s all linked and how it circles back to the beginning. With Songs For Cello, I’ve returned to solo performance again. It’s all live, with an emphasis on the intuitive. Those are the things I’ve learned how to do through all my explorations and collaborations. Even as I’ve incorporated these experiences, it brings me back to the basics and it’s the same with the music. Eastern modal traditions; Hendrix riffs; the blues and folk music; it’s all one source that you keep tapping into in different ways.”

It’s a lifelong quest that had made Rufus Cappadocia a master of music’s universal language, in all its astounding diversity.

When you take on the challenge of being an entrepreneur, you take on the role of sales person. Cold calling. Lead generation. Overcoming objections. Closing. Most of these things do not come naturally, even if you are passionate about your product or service. It takes preparation and practice. During this interactive session, you'll be designing a sales strategy, working on your verbiage and role playing a prospect conversation.

Kim Richey Live in Concert
Benefit for the Friends of Castlewood Canyon
Friday, June 28 7 P.M.


Kim Richey is a traveler.  Musically, physically, emotionally. Not merely restless or rootless, it’s who she is. Willing to follow where the music leads, she’s landed in Los Angeles, Nashville, London, working with a who’s who of producers – Richard Bennett, Hugh Padgham, Bill Bottrell, Angelo, Giles Martin. She’s attracted a coterie of top-shelf genre-definers — Jason Isbell, Trisha Yearwood, Chuch Prophet, My Morning Jacket’s Carl Broemel, Wilco’s Pat Sansone – for her critically-lauded projects.

Part of what draws them to the dusky honey of her crystalline alto is the way she writes: to and from the soul, never flinching from the conflicts and crushing moments, yet always finding dignity and resilience. Her arc of the human heart is true. True enough that over the years, Richey’s been both Grammy nominated and awarded. First nominated for Yearwood’s truculently groove-country “Baby, I Lied,” then part of the Best Southern Gospel, Country or Bluegrass Album Amazing Grace 2: A Country Salute to Gospel, plus that #1 co-written with Radney Foster “Nobody Wins.”“Harlan Howard said – and maybe I’ve taken it too much to heart, ‘It’s always more believable if you sing it in the first person.’ And when I sit down to write, if it’s something I’m going to sing, I want it to be what I want it to be. I don’t really settle, which may make me a little hard to write with. But I have to be able to stand up and sing it night after night, and I can’t if I don’t really believe it.”

Those standards made Richey’s “Glimmer” one of TIME’s Top Records of 1999 and “Rise” named People’s Best Alt-Country Record of 2002. Even when singing from the point of view of a guy working on a barge going up and down the Ohio River in “Dear John,” her aim is true. As she says of the man refusing to read the letter that ends his romance, “because if I don’t read your letter, then it’s not over. Sometimes these songs are specific and personal, but it’s also true in ways that reflect so many other people’s experience, too.”

Doors: 6 p.m. for TLCA Members & Friends of Castlewood Canyon;  6:15 p.m. for General Public
Advance Tickets:TLCA Members and Friends of Castlewood Canyon $18 / Non-Members $20

Grammy award-winning and Platinum selling artist Suzy Bogguss is one to chase the muse wherever it may lead. She has covered Country, Swing, Jazz, Folk, Americana and Roots music with style and grace.

During the creative explosion that was country music in the 1990s Suzy Bogguss sold 4 millions records with sparkling radio hits like “Outbound Plane”, “Someday Soon”, “Letting Go” and “Drive South”.

Suzy’s 2015 album Lucky was a heartfelt homage to the songwriting of Merle Haggard. Some may recall she kicked off her career with 1989’s “Somewhere Between,” her debut album named after one of Haggard’s early songs. With Lucky, Bogguss dove deeper into Haggard’s catalog, taking care to hold on to that original vision of finding songs that resonated with her not just pulling out and recycling the hits. The result is a modern record with a classic vibe. Merle happily gave her the big thumbs and Suzy embarked on two years of non-stop touring in support of the album.

Rolling Stone magazine included her in The Top 48 Things We Saw at SXSW two consecutive years in a row. In Fall 2016 she released Aces: Redux, to commemorate the 25th Anniversary of the original release. The “redux” is a complete re-recording of her Platinum-selling album with fresh instrumentation and vocals to not only highlight the timelessness of the songs in this collection but also to highlight who she is as an artist today.

The live performance – which includes her hits and choice material from her critically acclaimed albums – has been lauded by fans, critics and buyers as “a show not to miss!” Suzy’s appeal has never wavered and her fan base continues to grow with constant touring around the globe.

Since 2017, Suzy has also been touring as one of three “Chicks With Hits”, a show that also features Pam Tillis and Terri Clark. She also performs yearly holiday shows in select markets with her band or trio.

Suzy Bogguss truly is an artist that knows no boundaries and one who always leaves everyone wondering what she’ll do next!
