Prepare self, home, family before emergencies

FRONT RANGE National Preparedness Month, recognized each September, provides an opportunity to remind us that we all must prepare ourselves and our families now and throughout the year. This year’s observation focuses on planning, with an over-arching theme: Disasters Happen. Prepare Now. Learn How. Take time to learn lifesaving skills—such as CPR and first aid, check your insurance policies and coverage for the hazards you may face, such as flood, earthquakes, and tornados. Make sure to consider the costs associated with disasters and save for

an emergency. Also, know how to take practical safety steps like shutting off water and gas. The devastating wildfires throughout the West this year reminded the nation of the importance of preparing for disasters. Often, we will be the first ones in our communities to take action after a disaster strikes and before first responders arrive, so it is important to prepare in advance to help yourself and your community. Different types of disasters and emergencies happen in communities across the country, but there are key steps that every household can take to


be better prepared for them. If you do nothing else this month, take time to create a disaster plan including a home fire escape plan. Your ability to get out of your home during a fire depends on advance warning from smoke alarms and advance planning. Fire can spread rapidly through your home, leaving you as little as one or two minutes to escape safely once the smoke alarm sounds. A closed door may slow the spread of smoke, heat and fire. Install smoke alarms in every sleeping room and outside each separate sleeping area. Install alarms on every level of the home. Pull together everyone in your household and make a plan. Walk through your home and inspect all possible exits and escape routes. Households with children should consider drawing a floor plan, marking two ways out of each room, including windows and doors. By planning ahead you can understand how a disaster may affect you, and take steps to minimize those effects now. Be self-sufficient for three to five days if first responders can’t reach you immediately after a disaster, reduce fear and anxiety by knowing what to do, be ready to help others, and allow first responders to help those in the most life-threatening situations. When community evacuations are deemed necessary, local officials may notify you using one or more of the following: the Emergency Notification System, National Weather Radio network, outdoor warning sirens, and the Emergency Alert System. Local media may also provide valuable information regarding the evacuation process. The amount of time you have to evacuate will depend on the nature of the disaster, so be prepared to leave at a moment’s notice. You should have enough supplies on-hand should you have to leave with limited warning. All residents should have basic supplies on hand to survive for at least three days following an emergency. An emergency preparedness kit should be customized to meet the needs of the individual and the family. Be sure to think about your particular needs after addressing the basics of survival: fresh water, clean air and warmth. From emergency alerts pushed directly to your phone to up-to-date websites of local emergency information, there are many resources to keep you informed before, during and after a disaster. Learn how to prepare for emergencies at BoulderOEM.com, ready.gov, redcross.org and nfpa.org.

Mountain Sun and Avery Brewing will be pouring nine different beers, including a special collaboration brew.

In this spirit, the pub offered free live music once a week, a tradition that still holds true at Mountain Sun pubs today. For its silver jubilee, the Mountain Sun is joining forces with Planet Bluegrass to create a stage for some of the best acts to ever play the pubs. Continued on page 7

Americana duo perform with ‘playful edginess’

Ragged Union with its current line-up featuring Benny ‘Burle’ Galloway

Bluegrass band adds Galloway to talented line-up GOLD HILL Ragged Union is full of talent. The original bluegrass act features an aggressive drive with modern songwriting and arrangements. It features National Mandolin Champion Jordan Ramsey, “cult-hero” songwriter Benny ‘Burle’ GalBLUEloway, award-winning banjo GRASS player Chris Elliott, highlyrespected fiddler Justin Hoffenberg and a creative singersongwriter and flatpicker Geoff Union. Formed in the winter of 2013, on Colorado’s Front Range, Ragged Union has made a name for itself at renowned festivals and events in the United States and United Kingdom, as an “updated-traditional” original bluegrass band. In January 2018, the band began working with Benny ‘Burle’ Galloway on upright bass and vocal. Catch the new line-up at the Gold Hill Inn, 401 Main St., Sept. 21 at 9 p.m. Tickets are $10. The band’s music is rooted in the bluegrass tradition but includes modern and varied songwriting, lyrics and arrangements that allow it to bridge the gap between traditional, progressive and jam-grass worlds. The band has been through some personnel changes, none perhaps more profound than the most recent. Longtime lead vocalist, Christina Union, played her last show with Ragged Union in November 2017 and soon began working with Benny ‘Burle’ Galloway on upright bass and vocals. Galloway has been one of the best-kept musical secrets in the country, with songwriting credits on albums by Yonder Mountain String Band, The Infamous Stringdusters, Greensky Bluegrass, and Drew Emmitt. Visit raggedunionbluegrass.com to learn more about the band and its music.

ESTES PARK/LYONS Dahlby & Nadine is a duo that was born out of a local bluegrass jam in Estes Park. They discovered they had a similar drive to make music and write songs. Erin Dahlby on mandolin and Nadine on guitar now perform “Americana with a playful edginess” in numerous venAMERIues throughout the area. CANA Dahlby & Nadine’s song choices are “thoughtful and a little edgy” and their songwriting contains “clever lyrics with irony and metaphor.” The first time they blended their voices, they knew they had a “sound vibration that must be shared, and a playful energy.” This month the duo performs on Sept. 1 at the YMCA of the Rockies in Estes Park; Sept. 8, Oct. 14 and Nov. 4 at The Stone Cup in Lyons; Sept. 14 at The Barrel in Estes Park and Sept. 28 at Snowy Peaks Winery in Estes Park.

Special guests join ‘exhilarating’ flatpicker NEDERLAND The Larry Keel Experience, featuring special guests Drew Emmitt and Andy Thorn of Leftover Salmon, performs at The Caribou Room, 55 Indian Peaks Dr. in Nederland, Sept. 8, at 9 p.m. Tickets are $18 plus fees. “Ski rock” band Tenth Mountain Division opens the show. ACOUSTIC Keel is described by music critics and reviewers as the most powerful, innovative and all-out exhilarating acoustic flatpicking guitarist performing today. He has absorbed the best lessons from his Bluegrass family upbringing, both sides deeply steeped in the rich mountain music culture and heritage of Southwest Virginia. From there, he has always integrated that solid musical grounding and natural-born talent with his own incomparable approach to playing amplified, acoustic guitar and composing original music. He’s also got a knack for choosing interesting and appealing material from all realms of music with guts, whether it’s a tune written by a fellow song-writer/ musician friend, or a surprise cover from any number of musical acts all over the map. The combination is pretty irresistible, and has earned Keel the highest respect and billing among the top acoustic and jam rock musicians alive, and some now gone, including Tony Rice, Chris Thile, Steve Martin, Tim O’Brien, Vassar Clements, Sam Bush, Del McCoury, John Hartford, Bill Monroe, Peter Rowan, and Danny Barnes to name a few. His fierce, high-spirited energy also appeals to young rockers, jammers and alt-country pickers and fans who are equally drawn to Keel’s blazing guitar power, the deep rumbling voice, his earthy and expansive song-writing, and his down-home-grittygood-time charm. Keel convenes and collaborates with jam-band and rock giants Greensky Bluegrass, Infamous Stringdusters, Yonder Mountain String Band, Keller Williams, Jorma Kaukonen, David Nelson, Little Feat, Railroad Earth, String Cheese Incident, Fruition and Leftover Salmon among others.


Larry Keel

Throughout his career, Keel has released 15 albums and is featured on 10 others. The most recent release, March 2016, is EXPERIENCED, an entirely original work that showcases Larry’s and banjo virtuoso Will Lee’s exceptional songwriting, singing and jaw-dropping instrumental performances, accompanied by Keel’s equally talented wife Jenny Keel on upright bass and harmony vocals. This Americana Radio charting album exemplifies the raw sophistication of Keel’s progressive acoustic style, and features musician-friends who appear as guests on various tracks of Experienced including Sam Bush, Del McCoury, Peter Rowan, Keller Williams, Jason Carter (Del McCoury Band), Mike Guggino (Steep Canyon Rangers) and Anders Beck (Greensky Bluegrass).

NOTEWORTHY Felonious Smith Trio - Bucking the Blues (live)


elonius Smith Trio performs prewar blues music at its most authentic. The Boulder band recently released its third album, “Bucking The Blues,” a live recording from a February performance at the Douglas H. Buck Community Recreation Center in Littleton. It is the first to feature the incredible harmonica talents of Steve Sheldon with the band. Songs featured on “Bucking The Blues,” include the opening track, Prodigal Son , which features the soulful vocals and slide guitar work of Felonius Smith. A unique arrangement of St. Louis Blues highlights the dueling melodies of slide guitar and harmonica and several songs— Down By The Riverside, Jealous Hearted Woman, Your Feet’s Too Big, and Jelly Roll Baker are propelled by the “big toot” of J. Scott Johnson’s sousaphone. On Spoonful, the extended, improvised interplay between harmonica and baritone slide guitar is again highlighted along with the “ominous growl” of the upright bass played with a bow. The jug band classic Viola Lee Blues features a vocal duet and “funky tone” of the 1930’s National mandolin. A “rip-roaring arrangement” of the Blind Willie McTell standard Statesboro Blues completes the set. The group has performed at festivals and nightspots along the Front Range for 12 years, sharing the stage with Koko Taylor, the Subdudes and David Bromberg. Felonius Smith sings lead and plays the National slide guitar, Scott Johnson plays the upright bass and sousaphone and Steve Sheldon plays the harmonica. At its live performances, the band takes audiences on “a musical trip back in time some 90 years to a river bank in southern Mississippi for a generous serving of American blues tradition.” Drawing his inspiration from bottleneck artists like Tampa Red and Fred McDowell, Felonius Smith has been performing vintage finger-picking and National slide guitar blues in California and Colorado for more than 25 years. The “talented and expressive” Steve Sheldon plays harmonica with the group. Hailing from Des Moines, Iowa, his 20 years experience playing American roots music is reflected in his melodic sense and traditional sound. Rounding out the trio is Scott Johnson, whose “warm yet percussive approach” to his upright bass provides the backbone of the group’s vintage sound. When he doubles on sousaphone, it “invokes the festive vibe of a New Orleans street band.”

Experience historic town through eyes of artists CENTRAL CITY he Central City Plein Air Festival, produced by Central City Opera in partnership with Gilpin Arts, features 20 artists from around the country painting the fall landscapes and buildings that interest them within a three-mile radius of the Central City Opera House, Sept. 28-30. Visitors are invited to observe the artists, ask questions and enjoy the experience of Central City. The event, including an Exhibition and Sale on Sunday, is free and open to the public. “The Central City Opera is producing The Central City Plein Air Festival to celebrate the city’s beauty and establish the historic town as a center for arts and culture in Colorado. We are committed to fostering all types of art in Central City, including the visual arts.” said Lisa Zetah, Central City Opera’s director of marketing. “We hope this event will bring tourists, Colorado residents and art lovers to experience the beauty of historic Central City in the fall, through painters’ eyes.” Painting begins shortly after artists arrive at 8 a.m. on Friday and ends at 2 p.m. on Sunday when artists deliver three paintings to be exhibited and sold during the Festival Exhibition and Sale. Exact painting times, duration and locations will vary among artists, depending on points of inspiration and preferences for painting light and shadows. Virginia Unseld, who participates in three to five plein air events each year, is the only Gilpin County artist participating in the event. “I was pleased

to be one of the juried artists accepted into the Central City event. I have lived in Gilpin County almost 40 years but have never really painted Central City. I am excited to paint a place that I know so well. I already have places picked out to paint, many including the wonderful architecture there. I paint fast. I have to or I am always ‘chasing shadows,’ a plein air term for always painting the shadows as they move. I aim to complete a painting in 2 hours or less.” According to Unseld, her process involves scoping out an area ahead of time when possible. “I am looking for interesting subjects but more importantly noting when the light is dramatic at that place,” she explained. “So, then I can return at a good time. When I painted “Six O’Clock in the Morning” I was on my way to paint somewhere else but was stopped in my tracks, so to speak, by the fabulous colored lights in the street lights and storefronts. So I parked on the empty street and painted in my dark car. The cars that came and stopped and posed at the stoplight were a bonus, and added a focal point.” The public is invited to the Exhibition and Sale, Sept. 30 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., at the Gilpin County Art Association’s Washington Hall Gallery, 117 Eureka St. At 5:30 p.m. Festival judge Desmond O’Hagan will select winners for Best of Show, 2nd Place, 3rd painting and the winner will receive the Artist Choice Award.

The Great American Beer Festival includes beer from more than 800 breweries.

Local breweries attend ‘preeminent’ beer festival DENVER For the 37th consecutive year, beer lovers will gather in Denver, Sept. 2022, at the Great American Beer Festival, the country’s preeminent beer festival and competition. This year’s sold out BEER GABF offers samples FESTIVAL of over 4,000 beers from more than 800 breweries in an expanded festival hall. GABF represents the largest collection of U.S. beer ever served, in the format of a public tasting event plus a privately judged competition. Dubbed by Thrillist as “The One Beer Festival You Must Go to Before You Die,” GABF has topped beer lovers’ bucket lists since 1982 and unites beer lovers and brewers from all corners of the country to celebrate the nation’s evergrowing craft beer culture. Breweries in the Peak to Peak Region, including Dostal Alley Brewing, Very Nice Brewing, Oskar Blues and Rock Cut Brewing are taking their beers to the event to compete for its coveted medals and spread the word about what they do and where they do it. “GABF is a great showcase for craft beer, and for Colorado’s place in the history and future shaping of the craft… It’s a chance to be a part of something bigger—meet breweries from around the country (although we get to meet a fair share who travel to Estes for vacation), Rock Cut Brewing Owner Kirby Nelson-Hazelton said. “It also grants our staff the opportunity www.mmacmonthly.com

to expand their awareness of the industry—try new beers, learn about certain trends, meet other staff, etc.” Very Nice Brewing Owner Jeff Green says they “love” the event. “It’s the grandest of all the brew fests and must be experienced at least once in life,” he said. “My first attendance in 2008 was where I first found out how great the craft beer culture can really be. Although my favorite brew festivals have become the more intimate ones, GABF will always be a craft beer icon and legendary experience. As the brewer and creative side of our brewery, it means a tremendous surge in ideas and brewing knowledge.” Dostal Alley Brewpub has entered competition beers and poured beer at GABF since owner and brewmaster Buddy Schmalz first started brewing in 1997. “We are, perhaps, the only brewery at GABF that has never used a single volunteer to pour our beers at the festival (or any other),” Dostal Alley’s Brewer Emeritus Dave Thomas said. “We believe that only those who know our beers personally can accurately talk about them… We have won four GABF medals over the years, including three for Shafthouse Stout.” For the first time, Oskar Blues Brewery will be side by side with all of its CANarchy craft brewing partners. This diverse alignment of craft beer demonstrates CANarchy’s mission to bring creative, consistent, high-quality beers to craft drinkers everywhere. That means more choices, new flavors, and better craft beer in a can.

Area’s craft brewers offer wide-range of beer types, style for all tastes.

By Jeffrey V. Smith PEAK TO PEAK raft beer is big in Colorado, and its popularity continues to build each year. While the industry’s overall growth has slowed after many years of double-digit expansion—and new trends have impacted breweries of all sizes—the state remains at the forefront of the craft brewing industry. It is among the top for number of breweries, there are now almost 350, as well as per capita production and local economic impact. Since small breweries can be found just about everywhere in Colorado, it’s no surprise craft beer culture is big in the Peak to Peak Region as well. The Estes Park Brewery has been making craft beer in the area since 1994, Dostal Alley Brewing in Central City begin its brewery operations in 1998 and Oskar Blues in Lyons started to brew in 1999. Along the way, other breweries were opened and later closed. Peak to Peak Brewing in Rollinsville began about 1995, but its owner moved it to Boulder in 1998 where it became Twisted Pine. Wolftongue Brewery in Nederland opened in 1997 and brewed for many years. Wild Mountain Smokehouse & Brewery also brewed in Nederland for a long time before it closed in 2016. It was more than a decade before another brewery opened in the Peak to Peak Region. Over the past six years, however, a new wave of brewers have discovered the area—along with its outstanding water—and have opened breweries. Very Nice Brewing began making beer in Nederland in 2012, Lumpy Ridge Brewing and Rock Cut Brewing opened their doors in Estes Park in 2015. James Peak Brewery & Smokehouse re-opened and began brewing again in 2016 at the former Wild Mountain Brewery. Each brewery has its own unique atmosphere, styles of beer and brewing philosophy, but the brewers agree: they love what they do. “Honestly, I couldn’t do anything else,” Very Nice Brewing Owner and Brewer Jeff Green said. “I wasn’t fully aware of this before we started, but now that I have discovered brewing for a living, I could not imagine finding happiness and contentment in anything else professionally.” Green explained the brewery’s bottom line will always be measured by how interesting and tasty the beer is, not by how much he makes. “Being small means we have the unique ability to tweak each batch, To have fun with it,” he said. “We may be a commercial brewery, but our philosophy is more like

a homebrewer’s. We do this because we love it.” Lumpy Ridge Brewery Owner and Brewer Nick Smith also loves what he does. “For me, like cooking, I love making people happy with what I make. If I could do it for free, I would,” he said. “It’s a real privilege to get to express one’s self in so many ways. I appreciate it and hope that it translates positively into the world.” Many local brewers also agree their beer is fun, but accessible to a wide-range of tastes. “[Our] brewing philosophy at Dostal Alley is to have fun while brewing drinkable beer styles,” Dave Thomas said. Estes Park Brewery’s owner Tyler Lemirande says they brew for everybody. “We just tell everyone when they walk in the door they can find something they like, weather they drink domestic beers or not, maybe try to convert them a little more over to the craft beer side,” Lemirande said. At Lumpy Ridge, Smith said he takes an approach that is “risky, agile and mindful” of what consumers want. “We want to stand out but not be unapproachable,” he said. Although most local breweries are known for their flagship products, experimentation—which is often easier and less expensive on smaller brewing systems—is also important to local brewers. “Many of our local brewery friends tell us that they are jealous of our ability to tinker and have spontaneous fun with our brewing materials and processes,’ Brewer Dave Thomas said. “For example, when local citizens bring us freshly picked and dried wild hops from their property we often will throw them in the beer that we are brewing that day. You can’t do that in a larger production-schedule and standard-focused brewery.” According to Rocky Cut Brewing Owner Kirby Nelson-Hazelton, “[the brewery] was created from our own personal love of beer and sharing that love with more people. To that purpose, we brew the beers that inspire us—whether traditional or innovative, we don’t stick to any one genre but explore


whatever piques our interest.” Smith said Lumpy Ridge brews “everything we dream up.” Having a one-barrel pilot system allows them to “continually scratch the artistic itch,” explore trends and other ideas. Very Nice is always working on something interesting. “Since we wild forage herbs for [seasonal saisons], they truly are seasonal and usually we can only get enough for one batch,” Green said. “We just did a wild mountain rose saison that broke the record for how quickly one batch sells out. Our next will be a wild mountain clover saison. These are unique beers that cannot be copied by other breweries. Sometimes, not even by ourselves since they are so dependent on the natural world.” Unlike other businesses that might resist competition, new growth within the craft brewing industry is welcome. Another brewery opening is seen as a good thing and only helps the area continue to develop a reputation for good beer. “We operate on the philosophy that you should visit many breweries,” Nelson-Hazelton said. “Share the industry love and try lots of different beer. If you come to Estes and Rock Cut, you’ll get a great mountain experience… with freshly-crafted, independently-made craft beer. We treat our team and guests like family and love to share every aspect of what we do.” Green agrees beer lovers should explore all options, but not miss out on what he’s doing. “I would never advise to only come here, but I promise you won’t have as much fun if you don’t at least check us out,” he said. “We are certainly not the only place to go, but we are one that you would regret missing. Our beers are unique, well crafted and delicious.
