WELCOME Breckenridge Creative Arts (BreckCreate for short) serves artists, creatives, cultural enthusiasts, visitors, and residents with a yearround schedule of creative happenings throughout our picturesque mountain town. We are known worldwide for our annual Breckenridge International Festival of the Arts (BIFA). Seasonally, we program live music at the Riverwalk Center, art classes inside the historic buildings within the Arts District Campus and contemporary art exhibitions at Gallery@OMH. BreckCreate’s events calendar is expansive, with ticketed as well as free programming that will appeal to the community at large, including multigenerational families, classical music aficionados and fans of the spectacular. In Breckenridge, we believe creativity rises above the usual and ordinary. Here, creativity is woven into the fabric of the community. This summer we are thrilled to welcome BIFA back, and we’re looking forward to taking shows on the road again with the AirStage, the 1975 Ambassador Airstream trailer retrofitted into a mobile stage that we unveiled last summer. This catalog outlines what BreckCreate has instore for you this season. Please visit breckcreate.org for the latest event information, to register for classes and workshops and to purchase tickets for live events.

JOIN US FOR LIVE MUSIC Live@Riverwalk Center is a program of ticketed concerts, lectures and performances with regional, national and international talent. Please visit breckcreate.org to learn more. All performances are all ages unless otherwise noted. The Steeldrivers Jul 7 | $30–$40 Bad For You, the chart-topping fifth album from Nashville's hardedged bluegrass band The Steeldrivers, arrived after a period of triumph and adaptation. The band's 2015 release, The Muscle Shoals Recordings, won the GRAMMY award for ‘Best Bluegrass Album.” In bluegrass and acoustic music circles, respect for this Nashville quintet is so strong that the win seemed somehow inevitable, like a box being checked off. Mary Chapin Carpenter with Emily Barker Jul 9 | $50–$60 With hits like “Passionate Kisses” and “He Thinks He’ll Keep Her,” Mary Chapin Carpenter has won five Grammy Awards (with 16 nominations), two CMA awards, two Academy of Country Music awards and is one of only fifteen female members of the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame. Over the course of her acclaimed career, Carpenter has sold over 16 million records.

Drive-By Truckers with Buffalo Nichols Jul 14 | $35–$40 On the title track to “Welcome 2 Club XIII,” Drive-By Truckers pay homage to the Muscle Shoals honky-tonk where founding members Patterson Hood and Mike Cooley got their start: a concrete-floored dive lit like a disco, with the nightly promise of penny beer and truly dubious cover bands. The 14th studio album from Drive-By Truckers— whose lineup also includes keyboardist/guitarist Jay Gonzalez, bassist Matt Patton, and drummer Brad Morgan—Welcome 2 Club XIII looks back on their formative years with both deadpan pragmatism and profound tenderness, instilling each song with the kind of lived-in detail that invites bittersweet reminiscence of your own misspent youth. Cowboy Junkies Jul 17 | $35–$45 Sometimes revolutions begin quietly. In 1988, Cowboy Junkies proved that there was an audience waiting for something quiet, beautiful and reflective. The Trinity Session was like a whisper that cut through the noise– and it was compelling. It stood out in the midst of the flash and bombast that came to define the late 80’s. The now classic recording combined folk, blues and rock in a way that had never been heard before and went on to sell more than a million copies. Unlike most long-lasting groups, Cowboy Junkies have never had a break up or taken a sanity-saving hiatus. There’s an appreciation of each other that keeps them constantly working. G. Love Solo/Acoustic Jul 31 | $25–$35 Garrett “G. Love” Dutton is celebrating his 30th year as a touring and recording artist. Expect a high-energy mashup of funky vibes and songs written from the front porch to get the world smiling and dancing to the positive message of Love and the Blues. tickets + registration | 970 547 3100 | breckcreate.org


Jesse Cook Aug 14 | $40–$50 An accomplished guitarist, producer and equally prolific filmmaker, Jesse Cook has evolved his talents to create experiences that delight audiences both in concert, and online. Jesse and his extraordinary band are looking forward to returning to the road, bringing The Libre Tour and their unique brand of rhythm and rhumba to audiences across North America and beyond. Béla Fleck My Bluegrass Heart Ft. Billy Contreras, Sierra Hull, Justin Moses, Shaun Richardson & Mark Schatz Sep 11 | $55–$65 Over the last four decades, Béla Fleck has made a point of boldly going where no banjo player has gone before, a musical journey that has earned him 15 Grammys in nine different fields, including Country, Pop, Jazz, Instrumental, Classical and World Music. But his roots are in bluegrass, and that’s where he returns with his first bluegrass tour in 24 years, My Bluegrass Heart. Dirtwire Sep 24 | $25–$30 Dirtwire stands poised between ancient Mother Earth and modern technology, a blend of ethnomusicology and the psychedelic trance state, gut-bucket delta blues and what the band variously dubs “back-porch space cowboy blues, swamptronica, and electro-twang.” It’s a sound informed by Dirtwire’s travels and performances around the globe, where East meets West and North joins South.

The Wailin’ Jennys Oct 2 | $30–$40 The Wailin’ Jennys are Nicky Mehta, Ruth Moody and Heather Masse— three distinct voices that together make an achingly perfect vocal sound. Starting as a happy accident of solo singer-songwriters getting together for a one-time-only performance at a tiny guitar shop in Winnipeg, Manitoba, The Wailin’ Jennys have earned their place as one of today’s most beloved international folk groups. Graham Nash Oct 22 | $55–$65 Legendary artist Graham Nash, as a founding member of both the Hollies and Crosby, Stills and Nash, is a two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee who has seen rock history unfold at some of its seminal moments – from the launch of the British Invasion (that’s him on-screen in 1967, eyewitness to the Beatles global broadcast performance of “All You Need Is Love” from Abbey Road studios) to the birth of the Laurel Canyon movement a year later. An extraordinary Grammy Award® winning renaissance artist – and self-described “simple man” – Nash was inducted twice into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, for his work with CSN and his work as a solo artist, beginning with two landmark albums, Songs For Beginners and Wild Tales.

Calder Kamin Fort Worth, Texas | Reuse Sculpture Jun 20–Aug 22 Robert Whyte House Artist, educator and advocate Calder Kamin transforms trash into beautifully crafted creatures and opportunities to inspire others to be creative and courageous about the future.

She is also interested in initiating solutions for local plastic waste issues. With help from the community, she will build a large-scale sculptural installation for the Breckenridge International Festival of Arts. To add to the sculpture, bring your clean, label-free soft plastics on the following dates: June 18, July 16 and July 20. Stop by the Gallery@OMH to get your free collection bag!
