BITR has been at it for a year and it's time to celebrate.
On the first Wednesday of every month, you can hear some sweet sounds behind the garage door of Vapor Distillery. And who’s been bringin’ them to yah? Boulder-in-the-Round! And while tonight is the first Wednesday of the month, it also happens to be just a little bit more than that for BITR: It’s their 1st Anniversary Showcase!
We caught up with BITR’s organizers this week to ask them about hitting the one-year mark of their monthly tradition. Said Hunter Stone, “We are both so excited to be celebrating the anniversary show. We’ve had so much support from the community in the past year. We’re thankful to have met and hosted so many great musicians and fostered connections between artists and fans, while helping build a creative culture for songwriting in our community.” Added Theresa Peterson, “I’ve watched [Boulder-in-the-Round] connect people to each other and to local, original music. It’s been awesome to watch that community grow. We can’t wait to celebrate and to see what year two has in store!”
So who’s playing tonight’s anniversary party?
All four acts this evening happen to be Boulder based: folk/pop mountain dulcimer player Eric Elliott, soul/jazz guitarist, pianist, and vocalist Dechen Hawk, rock/blues guitarist and vocalist Hunter Stone, and folk guitarist, vocalist, and one part of Monocle’s Bill Huston.
The style of any Boulder-in-the-Round event is to have four badass musicians lined up on stage who then take turns playing songs. Sometimes they’ll jam together; sometimes they roll solo. Either way, they’re always so talented that you don’t really care what they’re doing- you just wanna listen. Wanting a lil taste of each artist? Lucky for you, we’ve put together a playlist for your eyes and ears here:
