Leftover Salmon’s Boogie at the Broadmoor Festival, Friday-Sunday, March 22-24, 1 Lake Ave., $34.50 and up, tickets and showtimes at boogieatthebroadmoor.com.
eftover Salmon’s music has never been without its incongruities. On a moment’s notice, the Boulder band can morph from rock ’n’ roll to Southern soul, from folk and country to jazz, blues and Cajun music. Expect most or even all of the above to come into play during their Stories From the Living Room Tour
, which, as you may have guessed, doesn’t involve actual living room shows, but does aim for a more intimate acoustic approach to their decades-long, feel-good repertoire. The tour also coincides with the publishing of author Tim Newby’s new 408-page tome Leftover Salmon: Thirty Years of Festival!
To celebrate, the band is hosting Boogie at the Broadmoor, a three-day event that will find them sharing bills with the likes of Sam Bush, Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and more than a dozen other acts, including local bands Woodshed Red and the Tejon Street Corner Thieves. The annual festival’s debut at The Broadmoor follows a four-year run at The Stanley, the legendary hotel whose ghostly residents inspired Stephen King to write The Shining
. All of which makes Estes Park’s loss our gain. Just watch out for those twins at the end of the hallway.
