Wine in the Pines | International Wine & Gourmet Food Tasting

Wine in the Pines, which benefits the Kelly Smith Employment Center at Ability Connection Colorado, was founded 34 years ago by Mike and Margaret Smith, owners of Dillon Ridge Liquors in Summit County. Their vision was to create an event to help people like their daughter Kelly, who has Cerebral Palsy. As Mike Smith is fond of saying, Wine in the Pines is a way to “pay it forward” and give back to others in a meaningful way that helps people like his daughter, Kelly, receive the critical resources and support needed to fully develop their potential and live life to its fullest.

These behaviors are part of life’s routine, and consciously or not, we’re all slaves to it somehow. But you can’t have the result without the process- you must get up to go down. Let this be your field guide to the minutia, the frivolities and of course the addiction to pure, uncut, freedom. Go ahead, scratch that itch. Because after all, we are creatures of HABIT.

Doors open at 5:30 and the film will begin at 6:00PM. Get you tickets today!

Keller Williams and His Compadres
December 15, 2017
December 15, 2017 - December 15, 2017

“Keller & His Compadres” are returning to Keystone for a two-night run at Warren Station on Friday, December 15th and Saturday, December 16th for the 6th year straight! Join us for two very different Keller Williams shows.

Friday will be a Bluegrass focused set and will feature Leftover Salmon’s Andy Thorn on banjo and Greg Garrison on mandolin along with Elephant Revival’s Bridget Law & Bonnie Paine.

Saturday night will strike a different tune, as Keller and his compadres including, Keith Moseley (String Cheese), Jason Hann (String Cheese Incident, EOTO) & Tyler Grant of Grant Farm will play an electric set that is sure to move the crowd.

Since he first appeared on the scene in the early ’90s, Williams has defined the term independent artist. And his recordings tell only half the story. Keller built his reputation initially on his engaging live performances, no two of which are ever alike. For most of his career he has performed solo. His stage shows are rooted around Keller singing his compositions and choice cover songs, while accompanying himself on acoustic guitar. With the use of today’s technology, Keller creates samples on the fly in front of the audience, a technique called live phrase sampling or looping, With nothing pre-recorded, the end result often leans toward a hybrid of alternative folk and groovy electronica. A genre Keller jokingly calls “acoustic dance music” or ADM.

That approach, Williams explains, was derived from “hours of playing solo with just a guitar and a microphone, and then wanting to go down different avenues musically. I couldn’t afford humans and didn’t want to step into the cheesy world of automated sequencers where you hit a button and the whole band starts to play, then you’ve got to solo along or sing on top of it. I wanted something more organic yet with a dance groove that I could create myself.”

Williams’ solo live shows—and his ability to improvise to his determinedly quirky tunes despite the absence of an actual band—quickly became the stuff of legend, and his audience grew exponentially when word spread about this exciting, unpredictable performer. Once he began releasing recordings, starting with 1994’s FREEK, Williams was embraced by an even wider community of music fans, particularly the jam band crowd. While his live gigs have largely been solo affairs, Williams has nearly always used his albums as a forum for collaborations with fellow musicians. An alliance with The String Cheese Incident on 1999’s BREATHE marked Williams’ first release on the band’s label SCI Fidelity Records, an imprint he still partners with today for recordings. DREAM, Keller’s 2007 release, found him in the company of such iconic musicians as the Grateful Dead’s Bob Weir, banjo master Béla Fleck, bass great Victor Wooten, American musician/poet Michael Franti and many others.
