The Help Keep Milagros on Main Street project has been going on for two months now. The wider community has come together to raise more than $12,000 dollars at the hands of over 200 donors, and the project is not over yet. We have a week left before the grant to the Colorado State Historical Society is due and we need your help to reach our goal of 250 donors to demonstrate community support for the grant. Milagros is applying for a grant to help cover some of the cost of the building, but we still need to raise more. Our goal is to fundraise $35,000 to offset the remaining cost for the space.
Here’s how you can get involved: Stop by Milagros to donate, comment, or write in the scrap book. Check out our Facebook event page: Help Keep Milagros on Main Street, for updates on the project and upcoming events. You can also donate online directly through our fundraising site at razoo.com—search “Milagros on Main.”
A packed crowd enjoyed a sold-out house concert from Sarah Siskind featuring Travis Book last April, and now the duo returns as part of a two night mini-festival of rootsy, acoustic-based Americana and folk music sponsored by the Alamosa Live Music Association (ALMA) at Vistas restaurant, atop the Adams State College stadium, during the end of March. Attendees can save by contributing for tickets to both shows.
Returning with their pop-folk tinged with the influence of Appalachian mountain music to kick off the festivities on Fri., March 30 is Driftwood Fire. The band is a rarity in today’s media mad world – an organically creative female duo whose vivid songwriting and prodigious playing skills display uncommon artistry. The duo’s captivating live performances have propelled them to the stages of the National Women’s Music Festival, the Rocky Mountain Folks Fest and the Falcon Ridge Emerging Artists showcase, as well as winning them Suggested Artists status in VH-1’s Song of the Year contest. Tickets for this show are $8 ALMA members, $10 for non-members, and $5 for students, seniors, full-time volunteers and active duty military.
“The best female singer/songwriter in America today,” and Nashville’s “best new voice,” are among the praises Sarah Siskind has earned. Her compositions are grounded in folk and Appalachian roots, but have also been classified as Americana and alternative. Artists such as Randy Travis, Alison Krauss and Bon Iver have covered her tunes, and bluegrass/folk legend Tim O’Brien has called her a rare talent. NPR’s Song Of The Day has highlighted Siskind, and Bonnie Raitt called her previous album “a masterpiece.” Bassist for the Grammy-nominated Infamous Stringdusters and Siskind’s husband Travis Book will join her. Tickets are $10 for ALMA members, $12 for non-members and $6 for students, seniors, full-time volunteers and active duty military.
Buy a combined ticket for Driftwood Fire on March 30 and Sarah Siskind on March 31 and save. Tickets for both shows are $16 for ALMA members, $20 for non-members and $9 for students, seniors, full-time volunteers & active duty military. Tickets will be available at the door. More information about supporting ALMA and about upcoming concerts is available at http://www.almaonline.org.
