Cahalen Morrison & Eli West – October 23

Cahalen Morrison & Eli West are simply put, two of the most innovative and subtle roots musicians today. Drawing from old folk sources, their sound digs deep into the roots of old country and bluegrass, performing with a fresh and vibrant twist.

Paul Kimbiris and The Dark Side of Pearl – November 20

Singer-songwriter Paul Kimbiris has written and performed all over the world opening for acts such as the Dead Milkmen, Hamell on Trial, and most recently Gregory Alan Isakov. “Dark Side of Pearl” tells the stories of folks he met along the way using shimmery guitars surrounded by strings and steel chains as the backdrop.

The Haunted Windchimes – December 11

The Haunted Windchimes’ music pulls from traditional folk and American roots music capturing a vintage quality grounded in honeyed harmonies and spirited pickin’. What sets them apart are their vocal harmonies embroidered by instrumental mastery.

Biff Gore – January 29

Father, singer and Army veteran, Biff Gore’s timeless raw vocals breathe life into the rhythm and blues he knows so well. Singing a powerful rendition of “A Change is Gonna Come” by Sam Cooke, Biff unanimously earned his position on season 6 of NBC’s “The Voice” battling his way to the final note.

Barefoot Movement – February 21

Heralded by CMT Edge as “one of the most promising bands on the bluegrass scene,” the music of the Nashville-based group is heartfelt, energetic and down home. The world fades away as the charming four-piece acoustic band play emotional ballads to rip-roaring barn-burners. Crowding around a single microphone, their show promises to be as fun to watch as it is to hear.

A Celtic Celebration with Beth Gadbaw Trio – March 18

Enjoy a special Celtic concert featuring the Beth Gadbaw Trio with acclaimed guitarist Frederic Pouille and fiddle virtuoso Sandra Wong. Beth Gadbaw (nee Leachman) is a Celtic folksinger and bodhran player described by “Irish Music Magazine” as “exceptional” and by Colorado Public Radio as “stunning.” Her diverse repertoire includes traditional songs learned in Irish pubs and English folk clubs.

Claude Bourbon: Guitar and Song – April 15

Nas: Time Is Illmatic – September 25

”Nas: Time Is Ilmatic” delves deep into the making of hip hop star Nas’ 1994 debut album, “Illmatic,” and the social conditions that influenced its creation. Twenty years after its release, “Illmatic” has become a hip-hop benchmark that encapsulates the socio-political outlook, enduring spirit, and collective angst of a generation of young black men searching for their voice in America. Professor Adam Bradley, director of University of Colorado’s Laboratory for Race & Popular Culture (the Rap Lab) will lead an interactive, post- screening discussion. Watch the film trailer here.
