So much going on. I took some much needed vacation time last week, and visited Durango/Mesa Verde with my girlfriend. While there we attended the 3rd annual iammusicfest which also hosted the Colorado Music Summit put on by the Music District and Colorado Creative Industries.
Much love to the incredible musicians who took part, including Foxfeather, Chimney Choir, Euforquestra, Hello Dollface, Paa Kow and others.
“…musicians work several jobs to make ends meet. If we can help them increase their quality of life, that’s a good thing for everybody.”— Margaret Hunt, CCI
That statement from Margaret at Colorado Creative Industries carries considerable meaning for me, and is very much a part of the underlying mission of Rocky Mountain Music Relief.
Since launching, following the hurricane that affected Houston, and from which our mission originated, many legacy Colorado musicians and venues have contributed to the cause, with much more to come.
If you’d like to contribute to helping professional working musicians affected by natural disasters in the US, US Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico please reach out via the website.
