Elin Palmer & Light Racket
Born in Värmland Sweden, raised along the front range in Colorado, Elin Palmer, “one of the most accomplished storied musicians in Colorado Rock history” (Ricardo Baca, Denver Post) and her band, Light Racket, exemplify that blend in their brand of Scandinavian indie folk-rock pop. The Swedish inspired sounds are grounding in their ethereal melodies, providing an aural landscape at once lush and mythical as rune stones covered in moss. In addition to two solo albums, Postcard (2010), and EP (2015), she has performed and/or recorded with aritsts such as Wovenhand, Devotvhka, Mark Mothersbaugh, Max Berstein, The Fray, Jeff Zenter, Boulder Ballet Co. and Ian Cooke.

Chimney Choir
Chimney Choir combines folk harmonies, ambient electronics, and swirling textures of rhythm and melody into a style of music that is not easy to define. They began in 2011 with a guitar, banjo, mandolin, and suitcase drum and have since toured the country extensively, recorded and released five recordings, and developed layers of electronics, live looping, and percussion. They still remain fascinated with folk music and traditions while they constantly evolve and experiment – their performances often take on a theatrical quality that has incorporated puppetry, ritual, dance, storytelling, interactive video and even a sci-fi mini-drama. In collaboration with Denver’s cutting edge ballet company, Wonderbound, they created the full-length ballet ‘BOOMTOWN’, which debuted in April 2015 to rave reviews and several encore performances. Their latest album, (dream), is set to be released in the fall of 2016. The album deepens Chimney Choir’s ever-evolving remix-collage technique, combining acoustic and electronic instrumentation, sampling, and evocative vocal and string arrangements with theatrical songwriting, intricate percussion and ambient drones.
