A local’s favorite, Let Them Roar is a powerful, genre-defying band that weaves a tapestry of mountain folk from threads of tradition, inspired by the beauty of their home in the Elk Mountains of Western Colorado. For the last 10 years, this group of talented friends has been pushing creative boundaries while growing into their mission and purpose: to be in service to the power of music to heal, connect, and inspire audiences. This will be their final appearance as a band so expect a special performance filled with energy and love.

7:45 - 9:30pm: Tierro Band with Bridget Law
Featuring founding members of Elephant Revival, Kan'Nal, and Jyemo Club. Arriving on a floating carpet powered by a magical genie, the sound of Tierro Band is an oasis for lovers of live exotic dance and world improvisation. The ethnic flavors of tabla and sitar spice up the danceable backbeat as guitars and violins intertwine layers of alluring melodies from distant lands.
