The upscale song venue recently non-stop after it was converted from a storage warehouse. With a ability of around 500, a trickery houses a dance floor, balcony, kitchen (with cooking such as truffle fries, pierogies, hummus, cheesecake and more) and dual full bars (filled with Colorado crafts).

Nederland doesn’t disaster around when it comes to music.
More than 40 years ago, stone ‘n’ hurl kingship (think John Lennon, Michael Jackson, Elton John) frequently convened during writer James William Guercio’s song studio, Caribou Ranch, customarily outward of Nederland. (It close down operations after repairs from a glow in 1985, though was inducted into a Colorado Music Hall of Fame in 2015).
Now, many contemporary song icons — members of Leftover Salmon, The String Cheese Incident, Yonder Mountain String Band — call a tiny city of reduction than 2,000 residents home.
Then there’s NedFest.
On Aug. 26-28, a Nederland Music and Arts Festival will applaud 18 years of hosting song that ranges from rock, to bluegrass, to folk, to jams during Jeff Guercio Memorial Baseball Park, on a shores of a Barker Reservoir.
“NedFest started out as a celebration in a park,” pronounced Peter Fiori, an organizer for a festival and owners of Nederland’s newest song venue, The Caribou Room. “And now it’s turn a high-end festival.”
Acts like Kyle Hollingsworth, Roosevelt Collier, Bill Nershi, Melvin Seals, Keith Moseley and Tyler Grant will beauty a theatre while Colorado qualification drink and grassland will upsurge and vendors will ring a field.
NedFest was founded during a jam eventuality in 1996 by “Michigan Mike” Thorpie. When Thorpie died in 2011, a Peak to Peak Music Education Association nonprofit was innate and took NedFest underneath a wings.
“NedFest has attempted to stay loyal to Michigan Mike’s prophesy flattering well,” pronounced Fiori. “It’s critical for us to keep his prophesy alive.”
Kristen McFarland, longtime NedFest volunteer, pronounced a festival “is so singular compared to each other one in Colorado.”
“NedFest embodies a clarity of village most some-more so than any other eventuality in town,” McFarland pronounced of a all-volunteer festival. All deduction advantage song education.
McFarland also pronounced NedFest customarily caps during a friendly 1,500 people, distinct many Colorado events during a summer.
“It’s not like fighting by 7,500 people during Dick’s Sporting Goods Park,” she said. “You won’t have to wait in line for a Porta-Potty and a drink line is customarily customarily 4 people long. It’s such a tiny crowd. You can get right adult to a front blockade and watch a music. No jumbotron is indispensable to see a musicians.”
She pronounced to keep things fresh, NedFest incorporates younger acts into a normal lineup of jam rope icons, like Colorado sextet Paper Bird, that will be shutting out a categorical theatre on Sunday night.
Paper Bird’s sonic shift
Paper Bird, former Boulder County baroque-pop band, will come to NedFest quipped with a sonic change after 10 years.
The rope split ways with vocalist Esmé Patterson, who followed a solo career in 2014, and combined Toronto-based thespian Carleigh Aikins. Various factors have played into a model sonic change that has a decidedly Nashville twang, pronounced bassist Caleb Summeril.
“We’ve had a reinvention of a sound,” pronounced Summeril, “but it’s been a lot of fun and we’re unequivocally happy with it.”
Aikins (of Canada’s eminent Bahamas and Fox Jaws) joins Summeril, Genevieve Patterson (sister of Esmé) and Sarah Anderson on three-part harmonizing vocals, Mark Anderson (brother of Sarah) on drums and Paul DeHaven on guitar.
The singly rich, three-part peace charge of a rope hasn’t changed. On a self-titled album (out Sept. 9), Aikins’ outspoken further adds layers of depth. However, Summeril substituted his banjo for an electric drum and that out-of-date antique has been transposed by enterprising alt-country rock.
“The folk sounds are kind of gone, we’ve changed to some-more of a stone and hurl and cocktail sound,” pronounced Summeril.
Summeril pronounced partial of a change was that a rope available a new manuscript in a large Nashville studio, partial was a further of Aikins and partial was carrying John Oates (of Hall Oates) furnish a new album.
“The song theatre in Colorado is so great,” Summeril said. “We adore being a partial of it, we adore rocking and rolling for a state. We’re vehement to go adult there and celebration with Nederland.”
As Paper Bird will share a theatre with many jam rope icons, Summeril pronounced he’s happy to step out of end and play festivals with opposite song genres.
“We’re not utterly in that scene,” pronounced Summeril, of a jam sound, “but we always adore when we get an event to play with acts that are opposite than a sound. We’re vehement to play with a guys who are large in a theatre adult there.”
