Fri Feb 28th, 7:00 PM: Eric Elison at the La Veta Mercantile

Feb 28 — Feb 28, 2020

Eric Elison’s music reflects a growing sense of spirituality and mysticism. Beginning with songs he recorded for his first album Westside Cafe, Sand Creek, and Gallatin Morning, Eric has written other songs that add to what some listeners describe as Mystic Folk. Songs including River of Time, Buffalo Are Coming, Starlit Sky, Came Upon a Clearing, and most recently Coyote Waits, are firmly establishing his reputation for offering something different, that is reflective of the inner-mountain west. Eric has recorded his original Colorado inner- mountain west themed music at Studio X in Nashville with famed producer Tom Manche. His songs, strongly influenced by the artistry of Canadian troubadour Gordon Lightfoot, are sometimes mistaken for Lightfoot's work. Tickets: $15 in advance; $20 day of show.

Spanish Peaks Wilderness

A.k.a Wahatoya Region

In Southern Colorado, there's an immense area where few go. Some enjoy the Nature, away from the crowded trails and resorts. Some come for the adventure. Some even stay.

What to do?

Follow trails through tall evergreens and quaking aspens. Stand on rock outcroppings and survey the valleys and vistas as they tumble upon each other to the horizon. Sit under a tree and listen...to the songs of the birds, the wind, the trees...the song of the mountains. Relax you're in the Cuchara Valley.
