Free Peoples tonight " twice
Free Peoples, a five-piece outfit hailing from the Bay area, play a pair of gigs tonight in the Roaring Fork Valley.
The band takes the stage at 6 p.m. in Basalt’s Lion’s Park for the town’s weekly free outdoor concert (head to the Riverside Grill in the event of rain) and then reappears at Steve’s Guitars in Carbondale for an 8:30 p.m. show. No word on the cover charge for the latter appearance.
The acoustic-oriented group describes its style as a fusion of bluegrass, folk and jazz. Before a date at the Blue Door in Snowmass last year, lead vocalist Tim Sawyer told The Aspen Times the band draws bluegrass fans, jazz lovers, Deadheads and even rockers. “People can come and dance to it, or listen to it,” he said. “It’s the first band I’ve been in that both my little nephew and my parents like.”
Friday night at Steve’s brings a return engagement by George Gertz and his Metamoocil Mountain Boys, also at 8:30 p.m. Says Steve Standiford (the Steve in Steve’s): “They always play sitting down but still manage to rock out the room. We hope they share their ‘live unplugged’ album with us.”
