Concert lineup

• July 6 — Motherfolk: Motherfolk started as Nathan Dickerson and Bobby Paver. The two college friends originally wrote songs independently, but began to collaborate after realizing their music was complimentary. Jacob Bremer and Rich Miller then joined the band, completing the roster needed to perform live. Motherfolk presents an upbeat musical fusion of indie rock and folk.

• July 13 — Hazel Miller: The stunning, powerful and moving voice of blues, jazz, pop and gospel returns to Beaver Creek. Miller rose to the top of the music scene in Louisville, Kentucky, and has taken Colorado by storm, with 5280 magazine readers making her their choice for Best Band in 2010.

• July 20 — Rob Drabkin: Denver native Rob Drabkin’s powerful vocals and beautiful guitar work make for a relaxed rock performance. Drabkin’s music is spirited in nature, light from the heart and rocking on the six-string acoustic. Original compositions such as “Stay (The Morning Light Fades)” are serenading, soft and melodic.

• July 27 — Tizer Trio: The acclaimed world, jazz, fusion powerhouse Tizer Trio features an all-star lineup of musicians. Led by Boulder native pianist, keyboardist, composer and former “Best New Jazz Artist” nominee Lao Tizer, the trio also features bass legend and three-time Grammy nominee Ric Fierabracci and Chicago-born drum phenomenon Gene Coye.

• Aug. 3 — Coral Creek: Coral Creek dabbles in a diverse catalog of original music spanning the genres of rock, country/bluegrass, Cajun, folk and island music. The band’s live performances transport audiences from the beaches of the Caribbean, down to the bayou and back up high into the Colorado Rockies, with instrumentation ranging from mandolin and fiddle to congas and steel pan.

• Aug. 10 — Air Traffic Controller: Serving in the U.S. Navy as an air traffic controller, singer-songwriter Dave Munro sent home demos written during deployment. The Boston-based group delivers fresh, upbeat indie alternative, performing at the 2015 Billboard Hot 100 Fest and earning them a spot on the National Public Radio Hot 100 List for South by Southwest.
