‘Two Rivers” Celebrates the Town of Lyons and the Music Community

Local songwriting team, Arthur Lee Land and Carol Lee, wrote the song “Two Rivers” as a tribute to everything that is Lyons, CO. This Americana, Folk-Rock anthem released a music video that tips a hat to all of the influential musicians that have or currently reside in the tight-knit Boulder County community. An artistic collaboration was formed with Arthur Lee Land and a film crew led by Ryan Decesari to share sights, sounds, and to show the musical heart and soul of this small Colorado town.


Just in time for National Cocktail Day (3/24): the Rio’s Paloma

Contrary to popular belief, the Paloma is the most popular drink of Mexico – not the margarita. Light and refreshing, it is great to drink March to July: from National Cocktail Day (March 24, 2020) to Cinco de Mayo to National Tequila Day (7/24). 

The Rio is the largest on-site purveyor of José Cuervo in the country, pouring nearly a million margaritas every year. One of their most popular tequila-based cocktails is their Paloma, which puts a spin on the traditional Paloma with the addition of Aperol, and is garnished with a dehydrated grapefruit wheel.



On Tuesday, March 10, 2020, the Boulder Theater will host Rosanne Cash with John Leventhal. Rosanne Cash is on tour with She Remembers Everything, a poetic, lush and soulful collection of songs that reckon with a flawed and intricate world. She Remembers Everything follows Rosanne’s triple-Grammy winning 2014 album The River & the Thread and marks a return to more personal songwriting after a trio of albums that explored her southern roots and family heritage. In the wake of the latest tsunami of survivor stories, Cash has embraced women’s narratives in this powerful material. “There is a woman’s real life, complex experiences, and layered understanding in these songs,” Cash says. “I could not have written them 10 years ago—not even close.”
