Alpenglow - Free Downtown Concert Series featuring The Delta Saints
Alpenglow is the Center for the Arts's free outdoor concert series on Monday evenings during the summer. With Crested Butte Mountain and Paradise Divide as the backdrop, come enjoy the sounds of a variety of music. Bring along your chairs, snacks and non-alcoholic beverages. This week the Center for the Arts presents The Delta Saints. Voodoo is rising from the New Music City. Not the Nashville of its country past, but a city awash in fresh talent fed by decades of tradition; dry hearts fueling the furnace of venues that always beg to be stoked. Leading the way are The Delta Saints.
Since 2007, The Delta Saints have brought feet to floors worldwide with songs like "Bird Called Angola," "Death Letter Jubilee," and their standout style of Psychedelic Voodoo Rock and Roll. In 2014 they sold out shows in six countries; toured 50 dates with Blackberry Smoke; played Summerfest and the Grolsch Blues Festival, among others; and released both Drink it Slow EP and a live album recorded on back-to-back sell-out nights at the acclaimed Exit/In. Now The Delta Saints are releasing their most ambitious record to date in 2015: Bones. Recorded at Sputnik Sound Studio in Nashville with producer and Third Man Records alum Ed Spear (fresh from contributing to more than 200 recordings for artists like The White Stripes, The Shins, Brooke Waggoner, Kingswood & Tinariwen), Bones is the sound of a new beginning for the band. It is a sign of the band boldly stepping forward from the crowd and refusing to be defined by the past. Rattling their would-be chains against the old cell bars. Singing to whoever will listen that there are far greater things yet to come
