Get Ready for Live Music!
Rocky Mountain Highway Music Collaborative is excited to announce five great concerts coming up between now and the end of the year to coincide with the 2017 Give! Campaign. In addition to two shows co-hosted with Friends House Concerts, we are thrilled to work with some of the other awesome non-profits in Give! to bring you three FREE concerts at Stargazers Theatre. Mark your calendar now and remember that the Give! Campaign officially kicks off on Wednesday, November 1!
SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 5
The Way Down Wanderers at Stargazers Theatre (FREE!)
At our Give! Launch Concert, you’ll have the chance to learn more about our participating non-profits, including Catamount Institute, Colorado Springs Therapeutic Riding Center, The Independence Center, lookwhatthecatbroughtin.org(Feline Rescue Network), The Millibo Art Theatre, Rocky Mountain Field Institute and Rocky Mountain Highway, while enjoying an evening of roots rock performed by The Way Down Wanderers from Chicago. It’s a Sunday so the doors will open at 5 pm and the music will start at 6 pm and finish by 9 pm. Donate any amount to any non-profit at the concert and you’ll be entered to win fabulous door prizes including a pair of tickets to the 10th Annual MeadowGrass Music Festival.
Equal parts fast-paced and soulful, 5-piece modern-folk Americana act, The Way Down Wanderers draw listeners in with energy, originality and soulful generosity. Youthful and professionally trained, these young men captivate audiences with soaring instrumentals, foot stomping sing-alongs and a lively stage show and have created a buzz for themselves with their unplugged, off-stage encores and propensity for performing self-titled, “restSTOMPS” – free acoustic sets at rest & truck stops along their tour routes. The band’s debut album was produced by Mike Marsh of the Avett Brothers and recorded at Sonic Ranch in El Paso TX.And with that, we’ve outgrown some stuff, and we can’t wait to share these changes with you.

FRIDAY, DECEMBER 1
Ellis Paul at Friends House Concerts
Singer-songwriter Ellis Paul was a key figure in what has become known as the Boston school of songwriting, a literate, provocative, and urbanely romantic folk-pop style that helped ignite the folk revival of the 1990s. His new album was produced by members of Sugarland and Train and includes backing vocals from Red Molly and Rebecca Loebe. Ellis makes his return to Friends House Concerts after last appearing for us with Catie Curtis.
