Heads up Colorado music lovers and people who like to dance! Paula Nelson and her band return in March

Saturday, March 8th, 2014


Another sure sign of Spring – The Paula Nelson Band travels north this month to entertain their Colorado fans! And the number  of fans continues to grow, too. I told two friends and they told two friends and they told two friends, and you get the picture. The shows are just so much fun, people dancing, people drinking, people making out  — and that’s just the band. Their shows have everything, and the music is fantastic.


The band kicks off their tour on Friday, March 21st, in Golden, Colorado at the Buffalo Rose.  This is the band’s first time at the venue, so come out and we can all check it out together and hear some great music.  And dance!  Bring your friends; they’ll thank you later.

Thank you to Rock Angel, for sending this graphic, one of the funniest ones I’ve seen about the two teams from the two states who legalized marijuana. Coincidence? I think not.

Farm Aid makes grants to Colorado and South Dakota Farmers

Tuesday, October 29th, 2013


Farm Aid has activated its Family Farm Disaster Fund to issue emergency grants to South Dakota and Colorado farmers who lost animals in the recent blizzard, but also warned that private aid cannot equal government aid, according to singer Willie Nelson, the group’s president. “Our hearts go out to the Colorado farmers who saw their precious soil ripped away by rushing waters and the South Dakota ranchers who have had the terrible task of finding and burying their dead cattle,” Nelson says. “Farmers and ranchers are caretakers first and foremost, and though their economic losses are huge, these disasters take a serious emotional toll.”

Livestock disaster aid in the 2008 farm bill has expired, but the program would be revived retroactively in the new farm bill. Farm Aid singer-songwriters and board members Willie Nelson, Neil Young, John Mellencamp and Dave Matthews host an annual concert to raise funds to “support Farm Aid’s work with family farmers and to inspire people to choose family farm food,” the group says. Farm Aid has raised more than $43 million since it began in 1985. -

Willie Nelson, Red Rocks (1999)

Tuesday, October 8th, 2013


[Thanks to Alice from Georgia for sending along this posting by Lana Nelson, in her Pedernales PooPoo, at  Lana posts to the newsletter from time to time, and you can read more  here.   Enjoy this one from a Willie Nelson and Family show at Red Rocks Amphitheater, west of Denver, in 1999. 

Rocky Mountain High – Morrison, Colorado 

“The bright lights of Denver were shining like diamonds 
Like ten thousand jewels in the sky …” 

Denver sparkled below us as Dad and the band performed at the Red Rocks Amphitheater for the 21st time. Nestled among 25 million year old rocks, this natural amphitheater allows the performer to be on stage, and all 15,000 in attendance can hear without a microphone. 

There may not be a more beautiful place in the world to perform. Today is the opposite of yesterday. 

“Goose” Gossage, former pitcher for the New York Yankees, dropped in to see his old friends. He brought by his handsome sons, who are already avid fans of Dad’s. He had a lot of fans of his own in the audience. One guy even offered him his front row seats for the show when security made us move away from the stage. 

Dwight Yokam and The Mavericks were also on today’s Willie Nelson Picnic. Raul and the Boys stopped by the bus after their fantastic show. They are booked on Farm Aid with Trisha Yearwood, say they look forward to the September 12th show. 

The Mavericks are one of many artists included on the new “Grievous Angel” CD. A tribute to the late, great, Graham Parsons, this has fast become our most listened to CD on Bus #1. 

Parsons’ music is a timeless treasure, like someone else I know.
