Sat August 29th, 7:00 PM: Rupert Wates at the La Veta Mercantile

Aug 29 — Aug 29, 2020

Rupert Wates' music is an eclectic mix of acoustic, melodic art/folk, with flavors of jazz, vaudeville, and cabaret. Despite Wates' British background, and underpinning the universality of his music's appeal, Folk And Acoustic Music Exchange has called him "a prime figure in American music." He was voted an Artist Of The Year in both 2013 and 2016 by the international house concert network Concerts in Your Home, and for five years running, he has been the most booked performer on their database of several hundred artists. In 2018, Wates was a Finalist in the Kerrville New Folk Song Contest and an Emerging Artist at Falconridge Folk Festival. Audiences everywhere respond to Wates' brand of melodic art/folk—haunting songs that ring true. $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.
