moe. blows out a few candles

The band gives their moe.down festival a rest — for now

By Dave Kirby
moe.down did carry an early repute as one of the essential stops on the groove scene circuit, reinforcing the notion that moe. was one of the primary stanchions in the last two decades’ jam band movement. That vestigial tag continues to follow the band around, at least in some of the press and promoter blather around them, and it’s probably misplaced.

Listen

With the name Candy Lee, you expect a sweet Southern woman serving you a slice of cherry pie, and indeed singer Candy Lee has that aura around her. But don’t be fooled by her angelic voice and sweet appearance, the girl’s music packs a punch. Her sound is a blend of folk and jazz with a slight twang, probably acquired from growing up in Arkansas.

BCO’s ‘Romance’: An adventure with unfamiliar yet comfortable music

By Peter Alexander
“The music is very approachable,” Saless says. “I think ‘Romance’ is the perfect name I could give it. It immediately tells you it’s a friendly concert, right?” Although not a familiar name today, Arensky was once considered one of Russia’s most promising composers.

Eminence Ensemble works hard for the music

Band does DIY tour-booking and festival creation

By Dave Kirby
We had made the mistaken assumption that our inability to get Eminence Ensemble drummer Tanner Bardin by phone last Tuesday, bouncing off a full-and-not-accepting voicemail box, was a ski-hooky thing.

Jewgrass

When looking at one music genre through the lens of another, the result becomes its own unique entity. When bluegrass meets Jewish music the result is Colorado’s own Rocky Mountain Jewgrass.

Three’s a crowd, but four’s a party

New producer gives The Devil Makes Three a new sound

By Alan Sculley
forming in Santa Cruz, California in 2002, the group had steadily improved as it developed its rollicking brand of rootsy acoustic music (which draws from bluegrass, country, jazz and pop) over the course of three studio albums — a 2002 selftitled debut, Longjohns, Boots, And A Belt.

Your imaginary friend

Slow Magic says his anonymity keeps the focus on the music

By Kyle Eustice
Most musicians want to be known. Some even want photos of their faces plastered across the covers of high-profile music magazines and lining the walls of teenagers’ bedrooms. The allure of “celebrity” often fuels the desire to keep creating. Slow Magic, however, is an anomaly.

Dance

It’s National Western Stock Show time in Colorado, so to keep the rodeo going pull on your cowboy boots and hit the Grizzly Rose for a night of country music with Aaron Watson. In his 12-year career Watson has toured all over the world, and his albums have appeared on the Billboard top 200 charts.

Listen

Beethoven, Mozart, Chopin, Tchaikovsky. The most popular names of classical music have one thing in common: they’re all men. On Jan. 21 The Dairy Center for the Arts is paying homage to the lesser-known women in classical music.
