Consider meaning of Labor Day on day oﬀ
FRONT RANGE Although mostly viewed as the end to the fi nal weekend of summer, Labor Day, Sept. 3, represents much more than a day off work and backyard cookouts. Labor Day is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country. Through the years the nation gave increasing emphasis to Labor Day. The
fi rst governmental recognition came through municipal ordinances passed during 1885 and 1886. From these, a movement developed to secure state legislation. The fi rst state bill was introduced into the New York legislature, but the fi rst to become law was passed by Oregon on Feb. 21, 1887. During the year four more states—Colorado, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and New York—created the Labor Day holiday by legislative enactment. By the end of the decade Connecticut, Nebraska, and Pennsylvania had followed suit. By 1894, 23 other states had adopted the holiday in honor of workers, and on
June 28 of that year, Congress passed an act making the fi rst Monday in September of each year a legal holiday in the District of Columbia and territories. The form that the observance and celebration of Labor Day should take was outlined in the fi rst proposal of the holiday—a street parade to exhibit to the public “the strength and esprit de corps of the trade and labor organizations” of the community, followed by a festival for the recreation and amusement of the workers and their families. This became the pattern for the celebrations of Labor Day. Speeches by prominent men and women were introduced later, as more emphasis was placed upon the economic and civic signifi cance of the holiday. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, the character of the Labor Day celebration has undergone a change in recent years, especially in areas where mass displays and huge parades are problematic. The change, however, is more a shift in emphasis and expression. Labor Day addresses by leading union offi cials, industrialists, educators, clerics and government offi cials are given wide coverage. According to the government department, “the vital force of labor added materially to the highest standard of living and the greatest production the world has ever known and has brought us closer to the realization of our traditional ideals of economic and political democracy. It is appropriate, therefore, that the nation pay tribute on Labor Day to the creator of so much of the nation’s strength, freedom, and leadership — the American worker.”
National Peach Month
Although its diffi cult to miss the roadside stands, crowded booths at local farmers markets and grocery displays, don’t forget it’s once again time for sweet, ripe peaches from Palisade. Varieties of the fruit are available from late-June through mid-September, but now is the peak of the season. Also, August is National Peach Month, so it’s the perfect time to celebrate the fruit and enjoy some Colorado-grown goodness while they last. The Palisade Peach Festival, Aug. 17-19, celebrates its 50th anniversary and 150 years of local peaches. The festival is one of the original agricultural festivals in Colorado. Plenty of great food, entertainment, contests, activities for kids, and opportunities to explore Palisade via outdoor recreation. Visit palisadepeachfest.com to learn more. Page 2

Local songwriters team up for benefit
COAL CREEK CANYON Don’t miss “the canyon concert event of the summer,” Aug. 17 at 7 p.m. at the CCCIA Community Hall, when a pair of local songwriters, Ken Fisher and Gabrielle [Gewirtz], team up to share a very special, up-close and personal concert to benefi t the CCCIA ScholarSINGERship Fund. Donations will be acSONGcepted at the door. WRITER Fisher needs little introduction to Coal Creek Canyon residents as he and his wife, Molly, have ben living there since the late ’60s. Among other things, he cooks pancakes in support of CCCIA’s College Scholarship Fund and is the Canyon’s 4th of July parade Grand Marshall. In addition to his steadfast community service, Fisher has been a joyful centerpiece of the Canyon music scene. His smooth western swing style has graced many Coal Creek events and he can be found on stage or sitting in at local establishments as well as playing with his band, Rough Around the Edges Band. He also performs in area schools to give back to new generations of music lovers. Infl uenced by Bob Wills, Woody Guthrie and Wil-
lie Nelson, Fisher’s musicianship and storytelling ability are “a unique musical wonder.” His latest album with Rough Around the Edges, Colorado Skies adds some of the area’s best musicians to his colorful and poignant writing and performance. His “Carousel of Happiness” and “Ballad of the Frozen Grandpa” blend bluegrass with his unique western ballad storytelling-style in songs anchored in our backyard. Gabrielle and her husband, David, moved to Colorado from New York in 2011 and “have never looked back.” The singer-songwriter is a resident of Rollinsville and a ceramics teacher at the Gilpin Clay Studio. She has performed in Denver, Boulder and Nederland since moving to Colorado. Gabrielle is a powerful vocalist and poetic songwriter and has been referred to as the “allegoric love child of Peter Gabriel and Joni Mitchell.” Her songs are an eclectic mix of fresh rhythmic textures with intoxicating hints of folk, rock, blues and world music. She has released three CDs, toured as an indie artist across much of the U.S. and sings back-up for many other singer-songwriters. The CCCIA Community Hall is located at 31528 Hwy. 72.

Magic Music in 1974
Band’s legacy preserved on film BOULDER
The award-winning music documentary 40 Years In The Making: The Magic Music Movie was recently acquired by Paladin and will be released nationally, Aug. 3. The film, which reunites “Boulder’s most influential and elusive jam band,” will also be released digitally, Sept. 3. Catch the film in Boulder at Boedecker Theater/Dairy Center, Aug. 8-11. A special Q&A with Director Lee Aronsohn and Magic Music’s Chris Daniels follows the screening, Aug. 9 at 7 p.m. Tickets are $6.50-$12 for all shows. The film also screens at the SIE Film Center in Denver, opening Aug. 10. A “special event” with Magic Music is planned for Aug. 17 at 7 p.m. Directed by Aronsohn, an Emmy-nominated writer-producer of Two and a Half Men and Big Bang Theory, the film follows his mission to reunite the scattered members of Boulder’s Magic Music in the hopes of getting them to play one last show. “From the very beginning, what I wanted to do with this film is introduce this music to people who had never heard it, which is most of the world,” said Aronsohn. “The festival audiences for 40 Years In The Making have been incredibly enthusiastic and I’m thrilled now to be working with Paladin and The Orchard to bring the film and Magic Music to the entire country.” Magic Music is one of the most fondly remembered bands of the “Boulder Revolution.” Living in a makeshift camp in the mountains, they would delight local residents and university students with their original songs, acoustic instruments and light harmonies; their growing popularity brought them to the brink of success more than once. Unfortunately, they never signed a record deal and eventually broke up in 1975. Four decades later, one of their greatest fans, Boulder alumnus and acclaimed director Lee Aronsohn, tracked down the original Magic Music members— George Cahill, Chris Daniels, Rob Galloway, Will Luckey, Bill Makepeace, Kevin Milburn and Lynn Poyer. Making a dream come true for himself, fellow fans, and the band, he brought them together in Boulder for a sold-out reunion concert that finally preserved Magic Music for posterity.

Continued from page 4
Hollingsworth of String Cheese Incident, Anders Osborne, Leland Skylar, Jeremy Salken and Kim Dawson. “I looked for five months for a bass player for the Super Jam. I asked everyone I could think of,” Talent Buyer Kris McFarland said. “So, after five months of looking, I saw a documentary on Leland Sklar and I was like ‘how about asking him?’” After failing to find his agent, she reached out on Facebook and he messaged back with his e-mail saying it “sounds like fun.” The bassist, who recently finished touring the world with Phil Collins, can be heard on thousands of well-known, popular albums including 13 by James Talyor, four by Jackson Browne, three from Crosby, Stills & Nash, five by Linda Ronstadt, six by Reba McEntire and others by Jimmy Buffet, Diana Ross, Arlo Guthrie, Sammy Hagar, Hall & Oates and nearly everyone else. “Even if you are somebody who hated music and never listened to music, you’ve heard this man play in the grocery store,” McFarland said. “My mom, who is 87, has heard this man play. That is how ubiquitous he is.” McFarland—who began booking the festival in 2012 after its founder “Michigan” Mike Torpie passed away—has been trying to get Jorma Kaukonen to perform each year, and he’s always been busy. This year, his people called her with the opportunity to have the Electric Hot Tuna with Steve Kimock U.S. tour kick off at the festival, in addition to a requested acoustic set. “So, for the 20th year, I finally got the guy I’ve been trying to get for seven years,” she said. According to McFarland, NedFest is more of a local festival than people recognize. “There are definitely people who buy their tickets right away, and if you look at the addresses on the credit
cards, there are some out of towners, but not much.” she explained. “It’s really a local festival, three-quarters of the people are from the Peak to Peak Region. I hear complaints that it brings in a bunch of outsiders, but it really doesn’t. A lot of times the cops say there are more people than cars—I say there’s a reason for that.” The all-volunteer, non-profit event is not only known for booking top Colorado and nationally touring talent, its celebrated for its intimacy. The entire festival is contained to the Jeff Guercio Memorial Baseball Field at the eastern edge of town. With a capacity of 2,000 people, fans are never more than 200 feet from the stage. The family-friendly nature of the event is another draw. A children’s activity area is always popular since children 12 and under are admitted free. The local food, brews and mead, as well as the unique, hand-picked vendors and artists are another beloved aspect of NedFest. Camping is available for $35 in Chipeta Park, across Boulder Creek from the festival grounds on Friday and Saturday nights only. No single night passes will be sold and campsites must be cleared by 3 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are on sale online. A threeday pass is $135 in advance. Two-day passes for Friday and Saturday are or Saturday and Sunday are $95. Singleday Friday tickets are $45, Saturday single-day tickets are $60 and Sunday single-day tickets are $45. Prices increase at the event. A VIP option with backstage access is available for $420. Proceeds from the event support the Peak to Peak Music Education Association which supports Nederland Elementary and Gilpin School music departments.

Intimate mountain venue hosts special evening of songwriters ALLENSPARK Looking for an opportunity to hear exceptional artists perform and share the stories behind their songs? The Old Gallery in Allenspark has been making quite a name for itself for bringing high quality musicians to the tiny mounhamlet. And its Songwriters in tain SONGthe Round, a monthly offering on WRITERS the last Saturday of every month, is “a real gem.” On Aug. 25 from 7-9 p.m., Songwriters in the Round includes musicians from the Constellation Collective with curator Kyle Donovan.

com and The Old Gallery, 14863 Hwy.7, for $15. A cash bar is available during events. Songwriters in the Round debuted in 2017, with two performances curated by singer-songwriter Theresa Peterson, the co-founder of Boulder-InThe-Round at eTown in Boulder. “Allenspark residents Holly Bea-Weaver and Steve Weaver came to a performance in Boulder and asked if we’d consider bringing a similar event to The Old Gallery,” Peterson explained. “Our artists were thrilled with the opportunity to perform in the mountains… The Old Gallery has amazing acoustics and offers a Steinway piano for our songwriters to use. But what the songwriters love most of all is the true listening room experience there. The Old Gallery audience is attentive
and supportive. It’s much different than playing at a bar or coffee shop where patrons are more interested in conversation than a songwriter’s lyrics.” According to Weaver, “If you enjoy live music, if you appreciate hearing songs as they are born and the back stories behind them, if you appreciate artistry and value a true listening environment, you need to come experience Songwriters in the Round.” Songwriters in the Round returns to The Old Gallery again, Sept. 29, featuring another set of artists from the eTown group, as curated by Peterson. If attending, consider carpooling and do not park in front of The Old Gallery or adjacent fire station, To learn more and view a complete list of all events at The Old Gallery, visit theoldgallery.org or call 303-747-2906.
NOTEWORTHY Hot Rize - 40th Anniversary Bash (live)
ot Rize, one of the most respected and influential bands in bluegrass music, on Aug. 3 release their new record Hot Rize 40th Anniversary Bash, recorded live at Boulder Theatre over the course of three sold out shows in January. Hot Rize, featuring Nick Forster on bass, Pete Wernick on banjo, Tim O’Brien on mandolin and fiddle, and Bryan Sutton on guitar, were joined by longtime musical friends Jerry Douglas, Stuart Duncan and Sam Bush. “We wanted to have a party,” says Forster. “We wanted to have a full-out bash!” And now, celebrating the anniversary of the band’s 40th year together, fans worldwide are musically invited to the party. The band selected 19 of the best of those unforgettable performances for the new record. Over the course of more than an hour of music, Hot Rize’s broad appreciation for soulfulness and their conscientious balance between traditional and experimental bluegrass—a Hot Rize hallmark since their inception—are on shining display. That warm and glistening, award-winning sound unlocked in every song by the lead vocals of Tim O’Brien, complemented step for step in sibling-tight harmony from Forster with Wernick and Sutton joining in; their stringed instrumental prowess featuring flat-pick guitar kingpin, Sutton, is no less impressive. Tracing a line from the band’s 1978 self-titled debut to their most recent release, this collection of classics, fan favorites and latest hits touches down on every significant entry on the Hot Rize timeline: From their signature nod to Bill Monroe with “Blue Night” and their ‘80s chart-topper, “Just Like You,” through the iconic song-of-the-year “Colleen Malone” from their IBMA Entertainer of the Year run in 1990, up to tracks from their latest, including “Western Skies.” Naturally, then, it’s on the Boulder stage for three nights in January of 2018, to a sold-out crowd, that these four musicians and these 40 years unite as one; to not only honor each’s contributions, and of course those two decades with their guitarist, the late Charles Sawtelle, but also to further this amazing journey. With respect for the past, gratitude for the present, and ambition for the future, Wernick, the band’s founder, fittingly sums it up. “It’s a really deep feeling of fulfillment when the thing you love smiles back at you.” Hot Rize 40th Anniversary Bash will be available on CD and vinyl (double LP) wherever music is sold and downloaded. For more information on the band, visit www.hotrize.com.

LaVern Johnson and the square dancing club she started 60 years ago. Photos by Kathleen Spring
LaVern Johnson celebrated her 91st birthday in July. The Red Rock Ramblers Square Dancing Club holds events with live callers and cuers on Saturdays at the Lyons Elementary School gym from mid-June until Sept. 2.
Six decades of dancing LYONS
ixty years ago, LaVern Johnson and her husband, LaVerne, were looking for square dance venues in the Front Range. Finding none, they started a club themselves. Their Red Rock Ramblers Square Dance Club is still going strong, and so is Johnson. This summer’s events, open to everyone, are a celebration of the 60th season and Johnson’s 91st birthday. The modern Western-style square dances, which began mid-June, are held every Saturday evening through Sept. 1— when awards are given and stories told—in the Lyons Elementary School gym. Rounds are at 7:30 p.m. and squares are from 8-10:15 p.m. A popular caller and cuer is featured each week. A 60th annual season-ending “Wing-Ding” Special Plus Dance, Sept. 2, begins at 2 p.m. Known as the “Matriarch of Lyons,” Johnson has been Town Trustee and Parks Department Member for decades; and has run the town’s historical museum for 43 years. Her family was one of the first in the area and she has spent a great deal of time preserving the town’s history and fighting to save its best attributes. Her dedication to Lyons and constant community volunteer work were commemorated by town when they named a popular park after her in 2017. Johnson credits her mental and physical fitness at 91 to the weekly square dances and remembering all 65 basic steps. The square dances cost $10 for singles and $20 for couples. Rounds are at 7 p.m., and squares at 7:30 p.m. till 10 p.m. Some food is provided by a different group each week. Participants consider themselves “lucky” to have a wooden floor to dance on, so new dancers are cautioned to wear soft shoes. Parking is free and camping is available in the town’s parks. Call 303-823-5925 or e-mail email@example.com for more information.

The event EVENT is free to the public. Signed copies of the book Wildfire will be available for purchase. Award-winning journalist Heather Hansen spent a full year “embedded” with the City of Boulder Wildland Fire Division Station 8, and witnessed firsthand the heroics of its wildland fire crew, one of the busiest in the country. Wildfire shares the drama, hardships, and experiences of the firefighters who try, sometimes in vain, to prevent destruction when a spark flares out of control. Using the Cold Springs fire of 2016 as a case-study, Hansen takes readers through the drama of wildland fire. Hansen tells the rich and frightening stories of the firefighters themselves and the challenges they face: a safe-

Meet, learn about alpacas at market
ESTES PARK Learn how to care for an alpaca, and much more, at the Estes Park Alpaca Market, Sept. 1-2, at the Estes Park Events Complex, 1125 Rooftop Way. The event is free and open to everyone 10 a.m.-5 p.m. on Saturday and 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Sunday. The unique market, celebrating its SPECIAL 19th year in 2018, is free to the pubEVENT lic and provides a chance to meet alpacas, see the array of products that can be made using their fi ber and fi nd answers to any alpaca related question. According to organizers, the two alpaca breeds, the huacaya and suri, are hearty animals, easy to raise and take a minimal amount of care. Over 200 alpaca ranches call Colorado home and the species number over 300,000 in the U.S. and are raised in all states. They produce 22 colors of fi ber—sheared twice a year in Colorado. Its durability and insulating properties make it perfect for clothing and household items. “First time attendees are always taken in by the uniqueness of alpacas, and then quickly learn about the high quality of garments that can be made from alpaca fi ber,” Market Director Larry Zierer of LaZyB Acres Alpacas said. “Farms go out of their way to educate visitors on any questions about the alpaca lifestyle, and there is always the cuteness factor of alpaca cria (babies). Visitors are welcome and encouraged to cuddle with an alpaca and make new friends.” After hugging an alpaca, plan to shop the mar-

Take home some raw fi ber for the next big project. “Craft people, like spinners, knitters and weavers, also have an opportunity to possibly meet the alpaca that produced the fi ber they may buy,” Zierer explained. This year’s event features more vendors than ever before including several new vendors offering a wider array of products than ever. “We personally know all the vendors and farms so it’s like oldhome-week and a chance to catch up with friends we don’t see that often. It is a fun event, and very laid back as compared to other events,” Zierer said. Visit estesparkalpacamarket.com or call 303475-4793 for more information.

This year , the two were chatting and since the roses were blooming, Ek was in the “thick” of picking rose petals. “We started talking about roses and how delightful they are and what fun it would be to do a Mountain Rose Saison,” she said. “So that’s how it comes. We’re just out drinking beer and we are like, hey, wouldn’t it be cool?” All of the rose petals in the Mountain Rose Saison were wild-crafted by Ek in “clean” Gilpin and Boulder county locations. “It takes a lot to wild-craft any quantity of rose petals because by the time they’re dried, it’s like a quarter of an once,” she said. There are also rose hips from last season in the beer. Some Page 18

Beat the Heat High-altitude locations oﬀer natural way to cool oﬀ
PEAK TO PEAK eeling the heat? Go higher! It’s August, and although weather patterns have been less then normal recently, the high country could see some of the warmest temperatures of the year this month. When the heat is on in the mountains, the best solution is to fi nd higher ground to keep cool. The mountain towns along the Peak to Peak Scenic Byway from Central City to Estes Park are, thankfully, at the doorstep to some of the best highaltitude destinations in the Front Range. While highcountry residents may not be dealing with same extreme temperatures as down in the fl atlands, it is nice that when an escape from the heat is needed, the solution is close at hand. While there are countless ways to get yourself to altitude in the summer, a few of the more popular and accessible places are detailed here. Find a place you’ve never been or get inspired to look for relief some place all your own. Once you’ve gone higher, hiking, biking, climbing, sight-seeing, fi shing, driving and most other activities are all more enjoyable in the crisp, cool, thin air. TRAIL RIDGE ROAD SCENIC BYWAY/ROCKY MOUNTAIN NATIONAL PARK ALPINE VISITOR CENTER
The Trail Ridge Road is one of only 10 “America’s Byways” and a nationally designated “All American Road.” Trail Ridge Road, Rocky Mountain National Park’s heavily traveled highway to the sky, inspired awe before the fi rst motorist ever traveled it. Covering the 48 miles between Estes Park on the park’s east side and Grand Lake on the west, Trail Ridge Road more than lives up to its billing. Eleven miles of this high highway travel above treeline, the elevation near 11,500 feet. As it winds across the tundra’s vastness to its high point at 12,183 feet elevation, the route offers visitors thrilling views, wildlife sightings and spectacular alpine wildfl ower exhibitions, all from the comfort of their car. The Rocky Mountain National Park Alpine Visitor Center, offering food, drink, restrooms, souvenirs and hiking trails, is located near the road’s highest point. It is the highest facility of its kind in the National Park Service. ARAPAHOE/ROOSEVELT NATIONAL FOREST
The Arapaho and Roosevelt National Forest encompasses 1.5 million acres and extends north to the Wyoming border, south of I-70 to Mount Evans and west across the Continental Divide to the Williams Fork area. Trails throughout the forest provide numerous access points to the high elevations. High alpine lakes abound and some of the highest mountain passes Page 22
Hiking any of the hundreds of miles of trails in Rocky Mountain National Park is the perfect way to find relief from the heat while enjoying the park’s amazing mountain scenery.
can be reached from trail heads all over the Peak to Peak and Clear Creek County regions. JAMES PEAK WILDERNESS
The James Peak Wilderness Area became part of the National Wilderness Preservation System in 2002. The 17,000-acre James Peak Wilderness is located within the Arapaho and Roosevelt National Forests within Boulder, Gilpin and Clear Creek counties. Adjacent to the Continental Divide on the eastern slope, the James Peak Wilderness Area includes several peaks over 13,000 feet and more than a dozen sparkling alpine lakes. INDIAN PEAK WILDERNESS Indian Peaks Wilderness became part of the National Wilderness Preservation System in 1978 and spans 76,711 acres. This wilderness shares borders with James Peak Wilderness to the south and Rocky Mountain National Park to the north. Elevations range from 8,300 to just over 13,500 feet and the area includes over 50 lakes and 28 hiking trails that cover about 133 miles. Indian Peaks is one of the most visited Wilderness areas in the United States. Named for various Native American tribes, the Indian peaks top out over 13,000 feet and form a snowy and scenic backdrop to the city of Denver. Much of the terrain is steep and heavily forested. ARAPAHOE GLACIER Arapaho Glacier is the largest glacier in the state of Colorado and helps provide water for the city of Boulder. The Arapaho Glacier Trail leads northward from the Rainbow Lakes Trailhead and enters the Indian Peaks Wilderness. Climbing through the woods for about two miles, the trail exits onto the open tundra with a view into the Boulder Watershed. After several switchbacks, the trail crosses to the south side of the ridge. At its highest point, the trail offers a spectacular overlook of
| AUGUST 2018
the Arapaho Glacier, 13,397-foot South Arapaho Peak, and 13,502-foot North Arapaho Peak. The trail descends 1,300 feet down a series of switchbacks to the south, intersecting the Arapaho Pass Trail at Fourth of July Mine. BRAINARD LAKE/MOUNT AUDOBON
The Brainard Lake Recreation Area is surrounded by subalpine forest set in a glacially-carved valley. The craggy peaks of the Continental Divide provide a spectacular backdrop for visitors to enjoy. With a wide variety of year-round outdoor recreation opportunities available, Brainard Lake Recreation Area is the most popular destination on the Boulder Ranger District. Hiking trails to the west of the area enter into the Indian Peaks Wilderness. From here the 13,229foot Mount Audubon is easily reached. It’s the sixth tallest peak in the Wilderness, and the highest with a maintained trail up to the summit. LONGS PEAK
At 14,259 feet, Longs Peak towers above all other summits in Rocky Mountain National Park. The fl attopped monarch is seen from almost anywhere in the park. Different angles show the great mountain’s unique profi les. Changing weather refl ects Longs Peak’s many moods. In the summertime, when conditions allow, thousands climb to the summit via the Keyhole Route. The Keyhole Route is not a hike. It is a climb that crosses enormous sheer vertical rock faces, often with falling rocks requiring scrambling, where an un-roped fall would likely be fatal. Enjoy the experience, but be willing to turn around at any time. For those who are prepared, Longs Peak, one of the most popular routes in Colorado, is an extraordinary climbing experience. Try to get up to altitude while you can, whether escaping the summer heat or simply getting out into nature, to take advantage of areas that are only accessible a few months of the year.
