Longmont Live will focus on bringing up-and coming musicians together with more established local musicians, as well as featuring those artists and builders who support the music scene. We are lucky to have some amazing local instrument builders in Boulder County, but they rarely get a chance to display their work outside of their storefronts.
Three musicians will come together to perform three 45-minute sets from 7 to 10:30 pm. The Kay Carol Gallery & Priscila Working Studio at 364 Main Street in Longmont is transformed into a coffeehouse atmosphere with snacks and drinks.
On September 6, Longmont Live will be held outdoors as part of the Southend Downtown Block Party. The stage will be set up in the 200 East Block Parking Lot of Main Street in Longmont. Click here for more details.
