Community SING ALONG at the Boulder Theater!
After 40 years in the internationally acclaimed Bluegrass band, Hot Rize, and almost 30 years as eTown’s Host, Nick Forster continues to bring people together through music! And this time, he is bringing his brand of “guilt-free gospel” to his home town of Boulder, Colorado with a recurring community sing-along.
In February of 2019 Nick presided over the first ever “Hippy Bluegrass Church” service at eTown Hall. Backed by a live bluegrass band, Nick invites all attendees to sing along with song lyrics projected on a big screen, facilitating great community engagement.
What is clear from the response to the few events we have hosted so far is that there is a real need for us to gather in community! Even for those of us who are in the habit of singing, it is time for us all to raise our voices together.
The response from the public has been huge, so much so that on May 19th, Hippy Bluegrass Church is moving to the Boulder Theater!
Start the day gathering with friends and other music lovers to sing songs like I’ll Fly Away, A Beautiful Life, I Saw the Light, Angel Band and other staples from the genre. Poet of the month and other offerings will be made along with the music.
