Big dream comes true

Thank you to our community for the support you gave to the Roaring Fork Earthbeat Choir in helping to underwrite and sponsor Grammy-winning singer/songwriter Steve Seskin for a free concert on Aug. 9 at Arbaney Park in Basalt, and a songwriters workshop August 10 at Steve’s Guitar Shop in Carbondale.

Both events turned out to be a wonderful success.

We had local singer/songwriters opening for Seskin, the likes of Frank Martin and Dan Sheridan, who competed in this years Troubadour’s Contest for the best singer/songwriter in Colorado at the Folk Festival in Lyons. Frank placed fourth and Dan won first place. Congratulations to both of our local talented musicians.

Thank you to the following people and organizations, for with your help this event was a big success: Michelle Diamond and the Alpine Bank of Basalt; Chuck Quinn and the US Bank of Aspen; Matt and Cheryl Goodstein; Nancy Kimbrell and Mario Larouche; Lenny “Boogie” Weinglass; the Schwener family; Glenwood Music; Signature Picture Framing; The Shirt Stop; Carbondale Council on Arts and Humanities; Basalt Realty; and Steve’s Guitar Shop of Carbondale.

And a special thanks to the Basalt Recreation Department for donating Arbaney Park for free, to Rich Ganson for donating his incredible sound system and his time, and to KSPN, KDNK and KMTS for holding my hand through my first major marketing event.

This was the first major event that Earthbeat Choir has endeavored to bring to our valley. Thank you to my board of directors (Vickie Falcone, Mike Stranahan, Debbie Kendrick, Debra Murphy, Nancy Kimbrell and Ted Kauffman), for without their support this would have stayed a pipe dream.
