FRIDAY JUNE 8TH AT 7PM — JACKSON EMMER & JARED SHAW (MUSIC)
ABOUT JACKSON EMMER—Jackson Emmer’s lyrically playful and intimate Americana style is as gleeful as it is irreverent. Combining an authentic country spirit with an honest and modern perspective, Emmer connects with listeners in the time-honored storytelling tradition. ​

​His songwriting is often compared to that of John Prine, Townes Van Zandt, and Guy Clark. Emmer has performed hundreds of shows around the country, sharing the stage with Leon Bridges, The Suitcase Junket, and Gill Landry (Old Crow Medicine Show) and many others. He’s now touring nationally in support of his ​2018 release “Jukebox,” via Lost Honey Records. Emmer lives in Carbondale, CO.

ABOUT PETE ANDERSON — In his books and in his life, poet, editor, teacher, and adventurer, Pete Anderson explores the ecology of story, spirit, landscape, parenting, and the cultural eccentricities of the American West. He teaches at Adams State College in Alamosa. Writing, he says, is about making a home: in the high desert, in the world of ideas, and in the great mystery of it all.

ABOUT LAURIE JAMES — Laurie James lives on a hill of sand with a pocket gopher, eighteen salamanders, and herds of well-fed birds. She can be found in Salida, picking up twigs on the edge of eternity. She’s performed with The River City Nomads for many years, and co-founded Sparrows, the Salida Poetry Festival.
