Jamestown Revival to open SkiCo concert series
The folk rock duo Jamestown Revival will open the Aspen Skiing Co.’s Bud Light Hi-Fi Concert series, the first of five free outdoor shows this winter.
The band will perform Nov. 28 at the base of Aspen Mountain at 6:30 p.m. The show will be followed by a firework show celebrating the annual Audi FIS Alpine World Cup at the Nature Valley Aspen Winternational Cup ski races and opening weekend of the ski season.
Jamestown Revival was born out of a friendship that spans more than a decade. Jonathan Clay and Zach Chance grew up together in the small Texas town of Magnolia. This Texas-bred/Los Angeles-based self-described “back-porch folk-rock” duo formed in 2011. The band takes inspiration from the likes of Creedence Clearwater Revival, Willie Nelson, the Everly Brothers, Guy Clark and John Prine. Their latest album, “Utah,” was recorded to tape in a log cabin in the Wasatch Mountains of Utah, and released in 2014.
Snowmass and Aspen Mountain open on Thanksgiving followed by a jam-packed weekend of events including the Thanksjibbing rail jam competition featuring top regional riders in Snowmass Base Village on Nov. 27. The event will be surrounded by a number of family activities and specials at Base Village restaurants.
