Our twice-monthly concerts are held on the 2nd and 4th Fridays of each month in an intimate, 1929 log hall with great acoustics, just outside Colorado Springs. We're a "listening room". Our audiences come to focus on the music, not to gab and ruckus. Our shows consist of two short openers and a one-hour feature set. We're a non-profit, and we're here to promote the music and not the bucks, so admission is only $5 for members and $10 for the public.
Our mission is to promote traditional, roots music, and although that covers many, many styles, we can’t book pop, rock, or any-style acts with drum kits. Typical styles that we support are folk, bluegrass, Americana, Celtic, string-band, old-time blues, and swing. We try to stay on the traditional side of the acoustic-music world, and we are a strictly secular and non-political organization.
To apply to perform as a feature act, shoot us your info below. Pick one or more Friday dates for which you would like to be considered, and we'll get back to you. Because of the popularity of our 25-year-old series, we’re booked well ahead, and we have to be pretty picky, but we'd love to hear from you.
