Live Music on Sunday at St. George’s
Ellis performs at St. George’s Church in Leadville on Sunday.
“If you haven’t yet caught her engaging and disarming live show, take a chance on Ellis and you’ll become a lifelong fan.”
That’s what music reviews and fans have been saying about folk musician Ellis who will be performing in concert at St. George Episcopal Church tomorrow evening, Sunday, March 24 at 7 p.m.
Ellis is a Minneapolis-based singer-songwriter who started touring professionally in the mid-’90s, performing at least 120 shows a year, many at national folk music festivals.
Tickets for Sunday’s Ellis Concert are only $12 (at the door) and proceeds benefit the Community Meals program. St George’s is located at 200 West 4th & Pine Streets.

St. George’s Hosts McFee Art Discussion
Next Wednesday, March 27, St. George Episcopal Church will host a discussion featuring local artist Colin McFee, whose mixed-media artwork is currently on display in church’s sanctuary.
Many locals may remember McFee as the former art teacher at Lake County High School, however recently a student himself, he just finished his Master of Fine Arts degree at the Vermont School of Fine Arts. In fact, the work on display at St. George’s is part of his thesis and should make for an interesting discussion about art, environment and conservation.
The evening begins at 6 p.m. For information about the event, contact Amy Frykholm at 970-333-1342.

But, He’s Leadville’s Resident Bagpiper!
Once the sound of those bagpipes starts wailing across a Leadville bluebird sky, everybody’s Irish. And in Leadville, that’s twice a year!
The St. Patrick’s Day (and practice) Parade is also where you’ll find Leadville’s Resident Bagpiper Colin McFee. Last Saturday Ed Reinhardt joined in and the pipes had the rafters shaking at The Silver Dollar Saloon.
While Colin can also now boast the accomplishment of a Master Degree in Fine Arts (congrats!), in a town that celebrates St. Patrick’s Day TWICE a year, being able to play the bagpipes puts you at a much higher status! Thanks so much for always showing up full of hot air, McFee! Slainte!
