THE WEEKLY CONVERSATION

VOX POP What summer event will you avoid at all costs?

‘IRS scandal’ is nothing but another ‘Benghazi-gate’ SEEM TO BE stuck in a bit of a rut. Can’t stop thinking about the ongoing “scandal” over accusations that, in recent years, the Internal Revenue Service unfairly focused on Tea Party and other conservative organizations that were seeking or enjoyed non-profit status. And then there is the use of this “scandal” by conservatives hoping to hang the whole thing around the neck of President Barack Obama, despite the fact that the scrutiny started under the rein of an IRS director appointed by former President George W. Bush. What a bunch of bull-puckey. The IRS has been used as a political weapon for so long, by both parties, I’m surprised its mission statement doesn’t somehow reflect this officially unacknowledged by widely understood aspect of its existence. Of course, that would be uncharacteristic of the federal bureaucracy, which in general is incapable of speaking the truth about itself. Our form of government has for so long been so fiscally and bureaucratically corrupt it doesn’t know anything else. From merchants overcharging for goods sold to the Continental Army during the American Revolution, to the use of torture by our “intelligence” community throughout the War on Terror, it’s just what the government does. Not that we should like it, condone it, or fail to condemn it. But its use as a partisan political club is more than just a little wacky. The whole IRS investigation thing, the calling out of Obama for being the one who sicced the tax dogs on conservative groups that obviously have misused their tax-exempt status, reminds me of nothing so much as “Benghazi-gate.” That’s the politically-tainted backlash from the far right (I might also call them the “far-gone”) to the killings of U.S. diplomatic personnel at the consulate in Benghazi, Libya, on Sept. 11, 2012. The killings were a terrible thing, to be sure, and there should be an accounting for any mistakes, errors in judgment and downright stupidity

that permitted the Benghazi compound to become a killing field. But to claim it is an incident worthy of impeachment is simply overreach on the part of the relatively small but quite vocal minority of Americans who hate Obama and anything he touches. And now the same cries of “impeach the president” are being heard over the IRS mess. The problem is, the IRS mess is just that — a mess. It is not a vast conspiracy aimed at shutting down the caterwauling, hysterical mouthings of the teabaggers and their supporters. It was just the IRS doing what they do to ensure that tax laws are not being sidestepped and tax revenues are not lost, something that usually is seen as at least a necessary evil. Let me say this clearly: I firmly believe our government has grown too unwieldy, too complex for it to be considered “under control” by anyone. This has been the case for decades, possibly more so among the diplomatic and intelligence agencies than anywhere else in government, but just as much so for the IRS. This is as true in the Obama administration as it has been for previous administrations. Most of us recognize this, and here is where the hounds of conservatism have erred in their baying for the President’s head. They have erred because their heads are stuck in a sand pile of their own making, and they believe all of us think like they do. But in their desperation to find any wedge issue to use against Obama, they turn themselves into an ever more ridiculous political sideshow. And it is made worse by the TeaParty.org’s constant hyperbolic, hysterical overstatement of negative outcomes, misrepresentations of events, and twisting of facts. All in all, it’s a pretty pathetic way to run a political party or a political movement, and I think the fates that the Tea Party and the Republican Party seem equally determined to maintain their irrelevancy for the foreseeable future.

THE WEEKLY CONVERSATION

by STEWART OKSENHORN

FESTIVAL

The Snowmass Mammoth Festival, Friday and Saturday, June 7-8, includes a chili competition and tastings.

WRITTEN WORD IN HIS appearance at the Wheeler Opera House, humorist David Sedaris read some of the pieces that were to be included in his new collection of stories. The book, “Let’s Explore Diabetes with Owls,” is now out, and Sedaris is clearly still at the top of his game. Drawing on his own experiences (being gay, traveling the world, having a jerk for a father), Sedaris creates absurd scenarios around the most serious of topics: race relations, family dynamics, politics. But while his touch is light, Sedaris consistently finds the fundamental truth about things, and when you laugh, part of it comes from the recognition that, yes, this really is the way humanity behaves. “Let’s Explore Diabetes” ranks not only with Sedaris’ best work, but with any humorist’s. “Let’s Explore Diabetes with Owls” is the latest essay collection by humorist David Sedaris.

CURRENTEVENTS POPULAR MUSIC

Aspenite Bobby Mason performs Saturday, June 8 at the Wheeler Opera House.

LAST YEAR, Aspen music icon Bobby Mason was set to celebrate his new album, “Find My Way Back Home,” with a gig at the Wheeler Opera House. The show had to be postponed due to health issues. This time around, Mason is celebrating the simple fact that, at 69, after a variety of health challenges, he is still around. The Bobby Mason Alive Concert, on Saturday, June 8 at the Wheeler, will feature old friends (including saxophonist Bryan Savage, who joined Mason in the seminal Aspen band of the ’70s, Starwood), and musicians new to Mason’s orbit. As long as Mason is able to get on the Wheeler stage, this should be memorable. Mason’s got nothing if not heart.

after a memorable 10year run, the Snowmass Chili Pepper & Brewfest is no more. But the concept founded by local presenter Josh Behrman — chili and beer competitions and tastings to the accompaniment of top-shelf music in Snowmass Village — lives on in the Snowmass Mammoth Festival. Now headed by Telluridian Steve Gumble, founder of the successful Telluride Blues & Brews, the Mammoth Festival debuts Friday and Saturday, June 7-8. Along with the new name, there is a new location, near the Snowmass Recreation Center; a new musical focus, with an emphasis on indie-rock; and the addition of onsite camping. There are grand tastings of beer from some 25 microbreweries Friday evening and Saturday afternoon, and samples of chili both days. The musical lineup is topped by Return to the Dark Side of the Moon, a tribute to Pink Floyd’s 40-year-old classic “Dark Side of the Moon” by A-list jazzgroove players. Other acts include Awolnation, the Joy Formidable, JJ Grey & Mofro, and the rising Colorado act, You, Me & Apollo. Each day closes with late-night shows at Venga Venga and Base Camp.

LEGENDS & LEGACIES

by TIM LYDON for WRITERS ON THE RANGE

FROM the VAULT

Pristine snow fields are quickly becoming a thing of the past due to increased pollution.

SNOW, NO LONGER SO WHITE the recent online series, Trip, features Swiss free-skiers Nicolas and Loris Falquet skiing through snow colored with yellow, blue and umber dyes, all apparently non-polluting. It’s beautiful, slow-motion cinematography that captures the complexity of snow, with vivid contrasts between storm layers, cornices, powder and slabs.

IT’S ALSO A TIMELY metaphor, because the color of snow is actually changing across the globe, including in the West. The phenomenon is attributed to various human activities and carries big implications for everything snow-related, including skiing, farming, forest health and municipal water supplies. The latest example comes from southwest Idaho, where March winds transported a layer of desert dust onto the snowpack at an Owyhee Mountains research station. Snow surveyors over 60 miles away also observed the dusty snow. Dust absorbs heat and can be ruinous for snowpacks. During the following 10 days, research cameras showed accelerated melting that contributed to an early runoff in local rivers –– a big deal for farmers, rafters, fly-fishers, fish and wildlife. Scientists blamed the event on exceptionally dry conditions in the Great Basin desert. Water specialists told the Idaho Statesman they’d never seen anything like it. But in Colorado, I remember the umber-colored

It happened again in 2009, leading some snowpacks to melt 48 days early, according to University of Utah researchers.

snowpacks, the events are causing alarm. Research adds to concerns. Satellite imagery and analysis of dust confirms its origins in U.S. deserts. In Colorado, researchers using pond sediments created a 5,000-year dust-deposition record that showed dramatic increases in the late 1800s, synchronous with the arrival of hordes of settlers with herds of cattle, which destabilized soils.

Current dust deposition remains 500 times pre-settlement levels, and contributors to the problem include grazing, development, off-highway vehicles, and drilling. The impacts are felt high in the mountains and follow rivers downward, from ski areas to reservoirs, farms and cities –– all the way to thirsty Los Angeles. One researcher estimates dust on snow reduces the Colorado River’s flow by 5 percent, stealing enough water to supply Los Angeles for 18 months. Pollution is also changing the color and impact of snow. Department of Energy research shows soot from coal-fired energy plants and diesel engines causes widespread snowmelt in the Cascades and Rockies. This reflects a growing global threat to snow and ice. Industrial soot travels far and increasingly is blamed for the rapid melting of Arctic sea ice and Alaska’s incredibly shrinking glaciers. Asian coal-fired energy plants enhance melting in the Himalayas. Meanwhile, millions of wood-burning stoves in Africa launch additional soot into the atmosphere, to be later carried Earthward by faraway snows. In Greenland, researchers tied melting to soot from fires in the Alaskan Arctic. Here in the American West, scientific models show a hotter, drier region with less vegetation and more dust. In both Idaho and Colorado, abnormally dry desert conditions contribute to dust-on-snow events. Increasing forest fires, including last summer’s blazes downwind of the Owyhees, can also remove vegetation and destabilize soils. In the Arctic, increasing fires produce soot destined for sea ice and globally significant ice caps. The implications are wide-ranging. And this new world we’re in also makes the December 2012 decision to strengthen Clean Air Act soot standards — lambasted by Republicans as “job-killing” — look like a good idea. The same goes for the multi-national initiative to reduce soot that was announced last year by then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. In these and other examples, seemingly distant policy decisions have a bearing on snow and the people who rely on it, including here in the West. Tim Lydon is a contributor to Writers on the Range, a service of High Country News (hcn.org). He writes from south-central Alaska.

ON JUNE 8, 1898, The Aspen Daily Times noted that Glenwood Springs would celebrate the first Strawberry Days on June 18, writing “Various towns in the state in years past have had their day- Grand Junction, Peach Day; Canon City, Fruit Day; Rocky Ford, Watermelon Day, etc. Glenwood Springs, in the center of the finest gardening and small fruit-raising section of the state, will on Saturday, June 18, celebrate its first annual Strawberry Day. The railroads have made excursion rates for the occasion, and the citizens of Glenwood have been active in preparing for the reception and entertainment of visitors.” The program included a strawberry and flower display, free strawberries, cream and cake, free swimming at the hot springs pool (including suits), a baseball game, and a grand ball.

WINEINK

WORDS to DRINK BY

A REMARKABLE DISCOVERY:

ARNOT-ROBERTS COMES TO SMITH FORK RANCH SMITH FORK RANCH may be Colorado’s most surprising and journey-worthy culinary destination. Arnot-Roberts may be California’s most exciting and iconoclastic winery. Never heard of either of them? Well then I suggest taking the magical two-hour drive over McClure Pass on Friday, June 28, where the two will collaborate on a winemakers’ dinner KELLY J. HAYES serving food that will surely beguile, and wines that will inevitably intrigue. As this is a wine column, let’s start with the juice. Arnot-Roberts is the wine project of two cycling friends who are also fiends for what some would call obscure grapes. Based in Healdsburg in Sonoma County, Duncan Arnot Meyers and Nathan Roberts were named the San Francisco Chronicle’s 2012 “Winemakers of the Year” by Jon Bonne, the respected Chronicle wine columnist and author of the soon to be published “The New California Wine.” Bonne, like other wine journalists — Jay McInerney of the Wall Street Journal, Eric Asimov of The New York Times, Kelly J. Hayes of The Aspen Times Weekly — has fallen hard for the wines made by the pair from grapes that, for many winemakers, would be too temperamental, to hard too find, and too hard to sell. But for Duncan and Nathan and their eponymous winery, the question has never been whether a wine is “too difficult,” but rather “is it worth making?” Consider the Arnot-Roberts Rosé made from the incredibly low-yield Portuguese port grape Touriga

Nacional, grown in Clear Lake, Calif., at the Luchsinger Vineyard. Or the North Coast Syrah, sourced from four vineyards all in the cool Sonoma Coast region. Harvested as late as November, these wines are whole cluster fermented in the style of the Northern Rhône, the motherland of Syrah. They also make a white field blend that includes the Alsatian grapes Sylvaner and Gewurztraminer, along with the German Berger and a grape called a Green Hungarian. The hodgepodge of vines hail from a vineyard that was originally farmed in late 1800s by Agoston Haraszathy, revered by some as the “father of the California viticulture.” These are not your typical wines and yet the most frequently found phrase on the Arnot-Roberts website (www. arnotroberts.com) is “sold-out.” All of Arnot-Roberts’ releases are limited; they make just 2,700 cases of about a dozen different wines. The back label of each bottle lists the grapes and the number of barrels made. The 2011 Old Vine White, Compagni Portis Vineyard that is mentioned above, and that will be poured at the Smith Fork Ranch dinner, yielded just 2.5 barrels, for example. Duncan Arnot Meyers, one half of the dynamic duo, will be at Smith Fork for the dinner, pouring the wines and sharing stories of, not just the grapes, but how in just eight years the winery has helped to establish a new way of thinking about California wines. This is a homecoming of sorts for Meyers, as he went to college at Fort Lewis in Durango (where he both rode and coached for the national champion mountain biking squad in the late ’90s. As for the meal, it is too easy to call the cuisine farm-to-table, as the

by KELLY J. HAYES

ARNOT MEYER’S SELECTIONS Known for experimenting in the production of wines built on obscure European varieties, I asked Duncan to comment on three grapes that you may not know: • TROUSSEAU: From the Jura region of France, just an hour and half or so from Burgundy, but a world away in wine terms, this is an electrifying (red) grape. The wines are fairly pale in color but have great tannins and they make very energetic wines. The grape is also found in Portugal, where it is called Bastardo and is used in Port.

“farm” for the Smith Fork Ranch is just steps away from the kitchen itself. Chef Seth Bateman, who came to the ranch following stints as a sous chef at Napa’s Meadowood Resort and as chef at the Lodge at Torrey Pines, says: “My approach to food is simple. If you take the best local ingredients at the peak of their season, and cook them simply, you’ll always have great results.” And late June is just on the cusp of the peak of the Paonia-Crawford growing season. Smith Fork Ranch is a gem of a place in a jewel box of a location. Just outside of Crawford, up a fork of the Gunnison River, the ultra-luxe lodge is the epitome of a Colorado guest ranch. With accommodations for just 26 overnight guests, the ranch is made up of a combination of original but meticulously restored guest cabins and a series of more recently built Western-chic guesthouses. It may be the only lodge in the world with both a full Frisbee golf course and a Wine Spectator Award-winning wine list. Each day guests return from their fishing, hunting, riding, etc., excursions and settle in on the patio for Bateman’s sophisticated cuisine and a selection of exceptional wines, many of which are available by the glass. For the Arnot-Roberts dinner, Bateman is preparing a series of dishes ranging from a Crudo of Colorado Bass to a Manti (dumpling) of Lamb’s Breast, also from Colorado. The presentation is designed to pair perfectly with a broad selection of the Arnot-Roberts wines. Kelly J. Hayes lives in the soonto-be-designated appellation of Old Snowmass with his wife, Linda, and a black Lab named Vino. He can be reached at malibukj@aol.com.

• RIBOLLA GIALLA (soft “G”): George Vare, who passed away just recently (RIP George), brought the cuttings from Josko Gravner in Friuli and planted just 2 acres that we source from. A great white wine grape with weight and the ability to age. One of our favorites. • TOURIGA NACIONAL: A grape used for Port in Portugal and increasingly for table wines, we make a Rosé from it. For me it is a really engaging wine with tannins and acidity but not too fruit forward. It has great minerality.

NEED TO KNOW For those who wish to attend just the dinner, it is priced at $135 a plate, including wines. But the better bet is to book a night, or a weekend, at Smith Fork Ranch. Reservations for both the dinner and accommodations can be made by calling 855-5391492, or emailing reservations@ smithforkranch.com.

FOOD MATTERS

EXIT HERE...

IF YOU’RE HUNGRY ON YOUR NEXT TRIP TO DENVER the drive from the mountains to Denver on a summer day is, in itself, spectacular. And even if you are dreading yet another jaunt to the Front Range, it’s a great chance to discover dining locales that may have yet to make it onto your GPS.

Aspen The Grind

GLENWOOD SPRINGS (Exit 116): I try and time my exit from the valley so that we can gorge on one the best burgers in the state. Stop in for a signature beef Grind — a customblend of locally raised, grass-fed cuts of brisket, short rib and chuck, ground on the premises. Or the best — yes, hands-down, the best — black bean veggie burger in these parts. Called the Mayan, it is a housemade black bean Grind, with chipotle mayo, pumpkin seed salsa, lettuce, tortilla chips and roasted Anaheim chilis. The Grind — now in a new and expanded location — is a burger joint for the food-obsessed and worth a trip in any season. Order This: The Daily Grind, a changing chef-inspired creation ground from beef, chicken, lamb, tuna, pork, buffalo, or veggies. Call (or click) ahead: (970) 2309258, or online at grindglenwood. com.

Eat! Drink!

EDWARDS (Exit 163): Worthy of a date-night out, this stop features a menu of gourmet paninis and small plates to share, Eat! Drink! also serves 30 wines by the glass (all under $10). For an impromptu picnic, should you be so inspired on your next road trip through the mountains, assemble a cheese basket from more than 200 artisan selections. Don’t Leave Without Trying: Peppadew peppers stuffed with Valdeón blue cheese, wrapped in prosciutto, then pressed in a panini press and finished with honey and Marcona almonds. Call ahead: (970) 926-1393

Alpine Market & Deli

FRISCO (Exit 201): For those dedicated to local, organic products, or have specific dietary needs (vegan, gluten-free) there’s Alpine Market & Deli, an organic food store, raw juice bar and allnatural meats deli. In autumn, leafpeepers dine outside where the fall sun warms the patio throughout the day. While sometimes the wait can be long, the selection keeps me returning to this fine option, trip after trip. Order this: Brant’s Super Protein Bar made with chocolate, peanut butter, sesame, sunflower seeds and coconut. Add a warm Harvest Spice juice of apples, carrots, ginger and a hint of lemon. Call ahead: (970) 668-5535

Smokin Yard’s BBQ

IDAHO SPRINGS (Exit 241): Recommended to me by former Pullman chef John Little, Smokin Yard’s has attained a cult-like following among frequent I-70 travelers. Using oak to evenly flavor its meat, Smokin Yard’s is an unexpected gem in Idaho Springs. (An aside: Do you know Idaho Springs claims to be the birthplace of the Gold Rush? Can this be true? Please do fill me in.) Order this: Moist brisket sandwich served with chipotle mashed sweet potatoes, spicy coleslaw and fried dill pickles. Call ahead: (303) 567-9273

NEED TO KNOW I-70 EATS HONORABLE MENTIONS • THE PULLMAN: This restaurant is such a no-brainer that I almost didn’t feel like I needed to mention it. For both adults and kids, it’s a homerun and less than two minutes off of I-70. I usually go with the daily special and the kids the best deal in the valley — lunch, dessert and a drink for $8. Glenwood Springs. • LARKBURGER: Yes, it’s a chain. But it’s a local chain and they make a great burger. Often oozing with grease, I don’t recommend eating these in the car. Shakes and fries are worth a try. Edwards. www.larkburger.com HEADING WEST TO GRAND JUNCTION: • RED BRICK BARBECUE: First recommended to me by Lisa Houston, publisher of EdibleAspen. A Texas native who knows her barbecue, Lisa doesn’t fool around when it comes to BBQ, and neither does Red Brick, which is located in Silt. Take note of the hours; they are closed between lunch and dinner and they mean it. www.redbrickbbq.com • BIN 707 FOODBAR: The most exciting restaurant to come out of Grand Junction since, well, since 1997 when I started keeping track. Owners are excited and devoted to a seasonal, farmdriven menu and friendly service. A must in GJ. www.bin707.com

GUNNER’S LIBATIONS

by ISABELLE CHAPMAN

NEED TO KNOW

THE PALOMA “It’s kind of like a really girly margarita,” the bartender

Agave Fresh-squeezed grapefruit juice Hint of lime juice Flakes of peppercorn Corzo tequila Serve chilled in a martini glass

at the newly opened White House Tavern tells me as I swish around a mouthful of the Paloma. She’s right — the Paloma is girly. Its pink hue is from the freshsqueezed grapefruit juice, which is used as a base for this old-fashioned cocktail. It vaguely resembles a frozen margarita — tequila swims around in the grapefruit juice, accompanied by a dash of lime, organic agave and flakes of peppercorn. I feel as if I should be sipping it while lazing on a beach in Mexico, instead of on the corner of Hopkins and Monarch in downtown Aspen. Served in a martini glass, the Paloma is syrupy and sweet, with just enough kick of Corzo to make it go down smoothly. Gunilla Asher is taking a break from the bar scene, so we’re turning this page over to you. Email jmcgovern@aspentimes. com with what cocktails you’re mixing, what libations you’re drinking, what tastes have tempted your tastebuds and we’ll share them with our readers. Cheers!

JUNE YOUR SUMMER VACATION JULY AUGUST SEPTEMBER JUNE JULY AUGUST SEPTEMBER JUNE JULY AUGUST HOW TO SPEND

by STEWART OKSENHORN

so you haven’t been to a concert yet at the Music Tent? Tsk, tsk. And you have yet to catch Theatre Aspen’s production of “Les Mis?” Better get on that. Neither have you taken in a lecture this season at the Aspen Institute, journeyed to Snowmass for a visit to Anderson Ranch and a Thursday night free concert on Fanny Hill, tasted some knockout Sonoma Pinot Noir at the Food & Wine Classic, nor saw that killer lineup Jazz Aspen Snowmass has rolled out for its June Festival? CHILL. THE GOOD news is that none of these things have happened yet. Aspen’s summer season doesn’t kick off till this weekend, when the Snowmass Mammoth Festival, a new spin on the old Chili Pepper & Brewfest, debuts in Snowmass Village. The other news — and this doesn’t really count as bad news — is that Aspen’s packed summer culture calendar creates a certain kind of pressure that we all know (and sort of love). There are art exhibitions and new restaurants, writers events and movies. There are concerts of all kinds, from rock shows at Belly Up to opera at the Wheeler Opera House to jazz performances in the Little Nell to bluegrass on top of Aspen Mountain to country gigs at the Labor Day Festival to chamber music in Harris Hall. That’s not to mention the hiking and biking, rafting and road trips that are integral to the summer experience in the mountains.

Jun e 6- 1 2 , 2013

As we well know, time is short in the Aspen summer. So the last thing you want to do is pick wrong: You don’t want to find yourself watching a 70-something croak out his hits from four decades ago, while your friends rave about the phenomenal ballet performance they saw — and you missed. So you’ve come to the right place. I’ve studied programs, pestered directors of arts organizations, listened to albums, read press releases, even clicked on old, reliable Wikipedia to search out the best, newest and most significant of what is going down in Aspen this summer. And I won’t leave it at a mere list of what to do, but am offering insight into what you should know to maximize the experience. The saying about the Aspen summer is true, and let me be the first to say it this year: You can’t do it all. So let’s make sure you keep your eye on the right stuff.


Jazz Aspen Snowmass June Festival:

Fans wondering what happened to the primo jam and classic rock acts in Jazz Aspen’s Labor Day Festival will find them at the June Fest (June 21-23, Benedict Music Tent), which usually emphasizes jazz and pop. This year’s stellar lineup has Jackson Browne, who has been on Jazz Aspen’s wish list for two decades; the blues-rock duo of Ben Harper & Charlie Musselwhite; and the soulful Tedeschi Trucks Band, who have a new album, “Made Up Mind,” set for release in August. The festival extends with Pink Martini (July 6), who went from unknown to fan favorite in their 2010 appearance. This time they come with a new singer, Storm Large, who replaces the group’s original vocalist, China Forbes.

The Tedeschi Trucks Band, led by Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks, performs at the Jazz Aspen Snowmass June Festival.

“Blood Brother”: This

portrait of an American who finds an overwhelming amount of love and need in an Indian orphanage won both the audience and jury awards for best documentary at the Sundance Festival. Director Steve Hoover will be in attendance when “Blood Brother” kicks off the New Views series (July 15, Paepcke Auditorium). Also in the documentary series, co-presented by Aspen Film and the Aspen Institute: “Anita,” about former Supreme Court clerk Anita Hill (July 29); “Inequality for All” (August, date to be announced), a look at the gap between rich and poor through the eyes of former Secretary of Labor Robert Reich; and “Gasland II” (August, date to be announced), a sequel about the consequences of digging for natural gas.

The award-winning “Blood Brother” shows in July in the New Views documentary series.

Snowmass: The arts scene in Snowmass is

undergoing an upheaval. Start with the Mammoth Festival, which is the old Chili Pepper & Brewfest (Friday and Saturday, June 7-8) but with a new location (at the bottom of the village), a camping component (which is new to the entire area), and a new musical focus with several indie rock acts (the Joy Formidable, Awolnation, STRFKR). Jazz Aspen’s Labor Day Festival (Aug. 30-Sept. 1) also gets a stylistic twist, away from jam bands and classic rockers and more in the direction of pop and country (Keith Urban, Jason Mraz, Journey, Little Big Town). After a down year, the Thursday night free concert series (June 20-Aug. 15) is back in the hands of Jazz Aspen, and the lineup is strong, with Louisiana bluesman Tab Benoit, zydeco master CJ Chenier, rising British folk-rocker the Dunwells, and Colorado grass band Mountain Standard Time. In the visual arts realm, the Anderson Ranch Arts Center recently had a change at the top, with director Barbara Bloemink resigning, and marketing director Nancy Wilhelms taking over.

Benjamin Britten: The Aspen Music

The late British composer Benjamin Britten gets a thorough examination in the Aspen Music Festival’s 2013 season.

Festival (June 27-Aug. 18) has so far stayed away from the custom of devoting a season to a particular composer on some significant anniversary. They break the string in a big way this year, with a summer-long focus on Benjamin Britten. Not only was the British composer born in 1913, but also he fits perfectly in with the season theme of Conscience and Beauty, and has a tie to Aspen: In 1964, presented with the Aspen Gold Medal, he gave a memorable speech about the arts. Among the 25 Britten works to be performed are the Violin Concerto, with soloist Daniel Hope (July 14); “The Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra” (July 16); and a semi-staged version of the opera “Peter Grimes” (July 27).

Aspen Writers’ Foundation: The 37-year-old literary organization gets a new

look this summer, with a pair of highly regarded incoming directors. Director Mo LaMee spent 12 years leading Creede Repertory Theatre, where he turned a small company in a tiny town into a regional powerhouse that out on 10 productions a year, drew an audience of 50,000, and even toured. Creative director Adrienne Brodeur co-founded, with Francis Ford Coppola, the story magazine Zoetrope, which earned awards and a reputation for helping kickstart the careers of writers who went on to prominence. For this summer, at least, the Writers’ Foundation program is familiar: the Aspen Summer Words Literary Festival (June 16-21) looks at a specific region. This year it’s China, with Chinese-born writers (Yiyun Li), Chinese-Americans (Lisa See, Sandra Tsingh Loh) and American who have spent time in and reported on China (the journalist couple of Deborah and James Fallows). Also worth keeping an eye on: Summer Words speaker Tom Barbash, whose upcoming story collection “Stay Up With Me” doesn’t fit the China theme, but is an outstanding collection of tales about American romance, family and childhood.

Jun e 6- 1 2 , 2013

Local chef Mark Fischer has opened a new restaurant in Carbondale, Town.

Town:

Inconvenient but true — the most interesting and creative new restaurant on the local scene is a 40-minute drive from Aspen. But Mark Fischer, who made his mark with the now shuttered Six89 (and still has Phat Thai in Carbondale and the Pullman in Glenwood Springs), makes the drive downvalley most worthwhile. Town, on Carbondale’s Main Street, sticks to no theme. If anyone can categorize a menu that features butternut squash enchiladas, pastrami lamb, crispy pig’s ears and gnocchi salad with asparagus and mushrooms, I’d love to hear it. What binds the food is imagination, balance, expertise, wonderful ingredients, even a sense of humor. There’s lunch and dinner, Sunday brunch, and bakery-andcoffee breakfast, but no service on Mondays.

P H O T O S B Y R O L A N D H A U P T ( L E F T ) ; LY N N G O L D S M I T H


Chautauqua Aspen:

The Aspen Historical Society borrows a page from American history of the early 20th century with a Chautauqua. These traveling shows brought culture to small towns. This Chautauqua (July 8-12) focuses on Aspen, with impersonations of local characters (Hunter S. Thompson, Elizabeth Paepcke), keynote speakers, sunset film screenings (“Dr. Strangelove,” “King of Hearts” and other films from 1963, the year the Historical Society was founded) and brown bag lunch gatherings, all under a big tent on the Historical Society grounds.

Geezer rock:

It’s a long time since Pete Townshend and the Who proclaimed they’d rather die than get old. Long enough, at least, to give plenty of once-young rockers a chance to give that thought serious reconsideration. Scores of 60- and 70-somethings roam the land with their gear and catalog of decades-old songs, many of them in surprisingly excellent form (Yes, Al Green, John Fogerty). Most of them seem to be headed to Belly Up in July: Todd Rundgren, who has a new album, “State” (July 3); Kenny Loggins, with his new Blue Sky Riders trio (July 18); Styx (July 20); Ted Nugent (July 24); and Johnny Winter (July 30). There are also tributes to older acts: the Led Zeppelin cover band Zoso (July 25), and Brit Floyd (July 31-Aug. 1). And in August, it’s Pat Benatar (Aug. 3); J.D. Souther (Aug. 22) and Three Dog Night (Aug. 23).

Guitarist Ted Nugent is among the aging artists on the Belly Up’s summer schedule.

The duo of cellist David Finckel and pianist Wu Han have started a studio within the Aspen Music Festival and School. The two also have several appearances, together and individually, in the Aspen Music Festival summer season.

David Finckel & Wu Han: David Finckel has given up his position as

cellist with the Emerson String Quartet after 34 years, but he carries on as a presence in Aspen. He and his wife, pianist Wu Han, are launching a chamber music studio within the Aspen Music Festival, and the two play a recital (July 10) with a program featuring Shostakovich and Britten, and also appear during a recital by violinist Daniel Hope (July 11). Finckel is soloist with the Aspen Philharmonic Orchestra on a Sunday afternoon concert (July 28), playing Britten’s Cello Symphony. Wu Han takes her own turn as soloist with the Aspen Chamber Symphony and conductor/Aspen Music Festival music director Robert Spano (July 12), performing Britten’s Piano Concerto. The Emerson, too, is not going anywhere. They debut with their new cellist, the Welshman Paul Watkins (Aug. 8), with a program of Haydn, Britten and Beethoven’s “Razumovsky” quartet.

Norbert de la Cruz III: The choreographer made his

professional debut last year when Aspen Santa Fe Ballet performed his “Square None.” It was a major hit, and de la Cruz’s career is in overdrive with prizes and commissions. The 25-year-old returns with a piece, untitled as yet, that was funded in part by winning the Princess Grace Award and has its world premiere in an ASFB program of mixed repertoire (July 18 and 20) that also includes works by Cayetano Soto and Trey McIntyre.

“Dark Side of the Moon”:

Getting stoned and listening intently to Pink Floyd’s “Dark Side of the Moon,” deciphering the meditations on alienation and connection, blissing out to David Gilmour’s guitar solo on “Time” — it all seems so 1973. Except the album endured like no other, spending 15 years (!!) on the charts and becoming a touchstone for generation after generation of music fans. On its 40th anniversary, local listeners have two chances to experience it again. Return to the Dark Side of the Moon, a headline event at the Snowmass Mammoth Festival (June 7, Snowmass Village) has a group of funk veterans (Bernie Worrell, Karl Denson, Corey Glover, Nona Hendryx) reimagining the album, while Brit Floyd (July 31-Aug. 1, Belly Up) should give a more precise version in a show that features “Dark Side” plus four more Pink Floyd albums.

Richard Betts:

The wine expert launched his career in Aspen when, while serving as director of the wine program at the Little Nell, he passed his master sommelier exam on the first try, a rare feat. Since then, Betts has proved as dynamic as the wines he favors. He has become a maker of award-winning wines and co-founded several wine companies; started the mezcal brand, Sombra; moved first to Boulder and more recently to New York City; and is about to become an author, with “Scratch and Sniff Your Way to Wine Expertise,” due out in the fall. One aspect of Betts that hasn’t changed is his notion that wine and other beverages should be lighthearted, demystified and enjoyed by all, which makes him a engaging presenter. He returns to Aspen for the Food & Wine Classic (June 14-16), where he will lead the Ultimate Blind Wine Tasting, plus lead a reserve tasting of California winery Sine Qua Non.

Paige Price: Theatre Aspen’s

Paige Price, artistic director of Theatre Aspen, directs the musical “You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown,” and oversees the musical “Les Misérables,” the biggest production in the organization’s history.

artistic director has been busy with building a venue and an organization, both of which she has accomplished with distinction. Now she gets busy with the artistic side, directing a production of the stage favorite “You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown” (July 11-Aug. 17). Price also stays occupied with organizational matters; the staging of the musical “Les Misérables” (June 21Aug. 17), directed by Theatre Aspen vet Mark Martino, is the company’s biggest production ever, with 20-plus actors and creative use of the intimate venue. Also putting himself on the spot is Matt Bailey, who plays 40 characters in the oneman show “Fully Committed” (July 5-Aug. 15), set in a bustling five-star restaurant.

Australia’s John Butler Trio makes its Aspen debut with a two-night stand in August at Belly Up.

John Butler Trio: This

bluesy jam-band from Australia, led by singer-guitarist Butler, got off to a hot start with their 2001 debut “Three,” which earned them gigs opening for the Dave Matthews Band and a slot at Bonnaroo. The success apparently made them too busy to get to Aspen; their twonight stand at Belly Up (Aug. 15-16) marks their local debut. Other Belly Up dates of note: African reggae singer Alpha Blondy (July 27); Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real (July 1); contemporary rockers Portugal. The Man (July 4); New Jersey folk-rock jammers Railroad Earth (July 14); roots group Son Volt (July 17); soulful/activist singer Michael Franti (Aug. 19); and hip-hoppers Blackalicious (Aug. 24).

Ingrid Magidson and Mary Eshbaugh Hayes: Two local women get the

spotlight in the visual arts. Hayes, best known for her loooong-running Around Aspen society column, has also been an ambitious photographer in her 60 years in Aspen. She will be honored at the Red Brick Arts Tribute benefit dinner (July 28, on the lawn of the Red Brick Center for the Arts). Magidson has won international attention for her complex, beautiful multilayered constructions. Her work hasn’t been exhibited in Aspen in several years and her technique is still evolving, meaning her new show (Aug. 3-24 with an opening reception on Aug. 3, Forré & Co.), with a dozen or so new works, should be a revelation. A book, “Madness of the Muses,” cataloging her work, is due for publication in July.

THELISTINGS

JUNE 6 - 12, 2013

SEE “Strike,” by Dick Carter, is part of the group exhibition Between Black & White, opening with a reception on Thursday, June 6.

ONGOING ROB PRUITT — 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Aspen Art Museum, 590 N. Mill St., Aspen. Since the early 1990s, Pruitt’s risk-taking investigations into American popular culture have taken many forms. From his notorious “Cocaine Buffet” (1998) and glitter portraits of pandas to such events as his ongoing flea market and annual art awards, Pruitt has employed a post-pop sensibility to playfully satirize the art world and its ambivalent relation to celebrity and popular culture. His exhibition at the museum will be the artist’s first-ever solo museum survey in America. Call 970-925-8050. THEA DJORDJADZE — 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Aspen Art Museum, 590 N. Mill St., Aspen. Originally trained as a painter, Djordjadze is best known for creating sculptural installations that combine found and constructed elements in carefully choreographed settings. Employing

materials ranging from the elegant to the everyday, Djordjadze’s installations often suggest fragmentary arrangements of furniture and other functional objects, oscillating between such categories as abstraction and decoration, model and reality, process and product. And while her works may develop out of her interests in cinema, architecture and literature, their references remain oblique, in effect setting a mood rather than telling a story. This will be Djordjadze’s first major solo exhibition in North America. Call 970-925-8050.

BOOK REVIEW

‘A THOUSAND YEARS OF GOOD PRAYERS: STORIES’ IN A 2012 article for The Guardian, Li was quoted saying, “It’s never my job to explain China.” Most of us do not know enough about modern China to feel the psychological connection that we do with many western countries’ literature. Are we at a disadvantage when we read Li’s work? China is emerging from communism and competing for superpower status in the global economy; because of that, we join the media in scrutinizing that country’s sensational and disturbing civil rights abuses, bureaucratic snafus, and natural disasters.

Careful planning and a bit of courage land her a sequence of caretaking positions.

craftiness. Optimistic and resilient, Granny’s life fades the borders between fate and free will, old ways and new. Great pleasure is to be had in reading this exceptionally fine literature.
