Big Brotherhood of Love At the Fox Theater in Boulder. ~ Mary VonBreck
John Lennon asked us to imagine so many concepts of living life in peace, as one. And the Boulder Troubadours Collective is the personification of a music community sharing such big love for each other that the Collective has become larger than the individuals in it.
I’ve read the posts all week from Dechen Hawk, a musician with chops to rival Jason Mraz if he wanted to, pouring his heart out to promote this collective music community.
And the show doesn’t disappoint. So many musicians with so many different styles are a treat in themselves. But the love fest doesn’t stop there.
These guys actually know each other’s songs. They harmonize, lead, backup and follow each other in a seamless show that makes you wonder why more concerts don’t feature multiple artists. I think they’re onto something.
Lesley Kernochan opened with some angelic vocals that pierced the smoky vapors on stage and freed our souls right from the start.
The Troubadours Collective featuring Clay Rose, Max Davies, Ramaya Soskin and a slew of other local talent held court and the evening closed out with sets from Paper Stars and SuperCollider.
elephant editor Waylon Lewis said something about how their music was from the heart, to ours, and that’s why he was proud to see elephant come on as a media sponsor.
It was the best of Boulder…and it will only get better.
