The Prairie Scholars Dig Deep, Plant Roots, and Grow Longmont’s Music Scene

“I was touring Colorado in 2007 and pretty much living out of our car, staying with friends. That whole bit,” Andy Eppler of the Prairie Scholars explains. “I played a few gigs at some local venues and it felt starkly different from the bars I knew from where I grew up.” He leans in a little closer and smiles. “People actually clapped after songs. I mean, I thought someone just scored a touchdown on a TV behind me or something. But it was for me.  It was an incredible and strange feeling. I knew this was where I wanted to be.”

The seed was planted and the move was on.

Thankfully, Eppler’s wife and collaborator, Jess agreed that Colorado made sense. “Andy came back from that tour and Colorado had just permeated him. It manifested itself in his art, his writing. Everything. He came back to Texas and made big colorful paintings of mountains I’d never seen. I was moved.  “So,” she says, “I toured up with him a couple times, then we moved. And we love it here. It’s become home, and we hope it will be for a long, long time.”
