A Song in Your Heart and Some Music in Town
The Leadville music scene, which usually dies with the summer sun, is staying on for an encore performance. So, be sure to get out there and support these musicians and the folks that bring them to town!
Tonight, The Scarlet will be hosting the band Stonefed with music starting around 9:30 p.m. The Moab-based jam band’s sound is described as blending blues, funk, rock, reggae and even a little hip-hop.Stonefed will be serving up some Rock and Funky Blues at The Scarlet Tonight!
An online review describes the group as “an act that continually pushes the energy of the ephemeral point of music. Always feeding on Rock and Funk, rooted in Blues, and truly born from Folk, Jam and Jazz, this quartet of intuitive minded musicians who can read crowd emotion are absolutely a – must see. Their ability to fold meter and feel into a pastry of dance floor shaking music and pure captivation is parallel in style and groove to some of the better acts of our time.”
Sounds like it’s time to put on your dancing shoes and grab some friends for a night out in Lead Vegas. Oh, by the way, The Scarlet will also be collecting goods anf funds for the Leadville Race Series Colorado Flood Relief Fund, so be sure to raid the pantry or pull out some extra cash at the ATM before you head down for the show.

“Sara Grey and her son, Kieron Means, play American music, as distinct from Americana -theirs is the real deal. Old-time ballads, cowboy songs and Primitive Methodist hymns are all grist to their individual mill. Sara’s unique frailing banjo style and Kieron’s blues-inflected guitar are in perfect harmony and this, instinctive, family symbiosis is what sets them apart.”Sara Grey (r) will perform with Kieron Means at St. George’s on Monday.
