Four more concerts on tap at Beaver Creek
BEAVER CREEK — After performances by The Caleb Dean Band, Von Stomper and Tizer Trio, Beaver Creek Music Experience lays out four more performances for the summer on Wednesdays nights through Aug. 12. Free yoga and music take place every Wednesday in and around Beaver Creek Village.
Starting at 4:30 p.m. yogis of all levels are invited to free outdoor yoga at Centennial Park on the grass next to Buckaroo Express Gondola. Yoga classes last until 5:30 p.m., presented by instructors from The Club at Allegria Spa in Park Hyatt Beaver Creek Resort and Spa. Some mats will be available for use; bringing your own mat, water bottle and sunscreen is encouraged. If in the case of inclement weather, the class will be held inside at The Club at Allegria Spa and a maximum of 20 persons can be accommodated, so arriving early is recommended.
Concert gates will be open at 5 p.m. Wednesday, and Mipso will take the stage at Creekside Park from 6 to 7:15 p.m. Mipso combines bluegrass, contemporary country, Gospel, pop, folk and American traditions. This North Carolina four-piece band has shared the stage with Steep Canyon Rangers and Chatham County Line. Guests can bring lawn chairs and blankets to set out on the grass and food and beverage will be available for purchase. Outside alcohol is not permitted.
On July 29, Florida singer and songwriter Matt Hires brings his original songs to Beaver Creek Village by Beaver Creek Ice Rink on the stage. Hires has toured and supported such artists like Needtobreathe, Matchbox Twenty, The Goo Goo Dolls, Paolo Nutini and Eric Hutchinson. Hires is influenced by Dashboard Confessional, The Get Up Kids, Bob Dylan and Tom Petty.
Aug. 5 marks the return of Hazel Miller to Beaver Creek Ice Rink as she shows off her powerful voice to the sounds of blues, jazz, pop and gospel. Since moving to Colorado in 1984, she has regularly performed with Big Head Todd and the Monsters and Beaver Creek is happy to welcome her back.

For the last performance of the summer, Aug. 12, The Crane Wives from Grand Rapids, Michigan, return to Creekside Park in Beaver Creek with their homegrown indie-folk-rock sounds. Combining strong poetic vocals, bass guitar, percussion and a three-part harmony, they cascade a unique, dynamic sound.
