Boulder, Colo. – eTown welcomes Tim O’Brien, Bill Frisell & Dale Bruning with Nick Forster for a night to celebrate the release of their album “Life Lessons.” The show is currently sold out. However, we are excited to announce a new way to bring eTown shows to our audience.
Now, more than ever, it is imperative to have options when it comes to live events. eTown is taking a step forward in the world of livestreaming. Our infrastructure at eTown Hall was built for exactly this. We are thrilled to be able to bring high quality audio and video directly to your home.
This is just the beginning of a series of upcoming livestreams that eTown is preparing for the future. Your support for this show will help us bring that vision to fruition.
In the 1970’s, Bluegrass legend Tim O’Brien and Jazz legend Bill Frisell were both young students of the same guitar teacher in Denver, Dale Bruning. Dale, an experienced jazz guitarist and bassist, had come of age in the Philadelphia and New York jazz scene. He moved to Colorado and began his career as one of the most sought after teachers and mentors in Colorado. Both Tim and Bill credit Dale with helping them discover their musical voices.
A few years ago, eTown founder and host, Nick Forster, had the idea to bring his bandmate from Hot Rize, Tim O’Brien, together with mutual friend Bill Frisell and reunite them with their former guitar teacher in the recording studio at eTown Hall.
The results were both remarkable and unexpected in that all three musicians drifted out of their comfort zones with their choice of songs, instruments, and arrangements.
The result, a new record! Life Lessons is a diverse collection of songs that capture the intimacy, friendship, and musicality that these three masters brought to the project.
On August 25th, they will be reunited once more to perform for the first – and perhaps only – time, the songs they created in the studio.
Dale, now 86 years old, is in top form and ready to play. “Life Lessons” will be available for purchase at this show on both vinyl and CD. It will also be for purchase online at etown.org.
Don’t miss this truly once in a lifetime opportunity at eTown Hall to see Tim O’Brien, Bill Frisell, and Dale Bruning come together with Nick Forster to share their artistry and mutual respect.
