With his unique voice, more unique song writing, and even more unique double necked “Guit-Steel” guitar, there has absolutely never been anyone like Junior Brown.
Come see how the west was sung. Mountain Rails Live concert series is our idea of a perfect Colorado summer day by combining train rides with great live music performances. We’ve designed our mountaintop concert site to perfectly complement the natural acoustics of a natural meadow amphitheater powered by clean Rocky Mountain sun and wind. Ride once and you’ll be a believer
Judy Collins has inspired audiences with sublime vocals, boldly vulnerable songwriting, personal life triumphs, and a firm commitment to social activism. In the 1960s, she evoked both the idealism and steely determination of a generation united against social and environmental injustices. Five decades later, her luminescent presence shines brightly as new generations bask in the glow of her iconic 50-album body of work, and heed inspiration from her spiritual discipline to thrive in the music industry for half a century.
Her stunning rendition of Joni Mitchell’s “Both Sides Now” from her landmark 1967 album, Wildflowers, has been entered into the Grammy Hall of Fame. Judy’s dreamy and sweetly intimate version of “Send in the Clowns,” won “Song of the Year” at the 1975 Grammy Awards. She’s garnered several top-ten hits gold- and platinum-selling albums. Recently, contemporary and classic artists such as Rufus Wainwright, Shawn Colvin, Dolly Parton, Joan Baez, and Leonard Cohen honored her legacy with the album Born to the Breed: A Tribute to Judy Collins.
She continues to create music of hope and healing that lights up the world and speaks to the heart. We are happy to welcome Judy and Chatham County Line aboard to ride to our intimate mountaintop stage for the first time this summer. Join us for an memorable performance.
Chatham County Line is Raleigh, NC-based with Dave Wilson, John Teer (mandolin/fiddle), Chandler Holt (banjo), and Greg Readling (bass, pedal steel, piano)—A veteran ensemble at the top of its game sticking to its considerable strengths—poignant songwriting and inventive acoustic arrangements that draw upon a broad array of American roots influences, highlighted by trademark three and four part harmonies that shine throughout while remaining mindful of more modern influences, including its members’ backgrounds in rock bands.
