Tiny Library Concert featuring Harry Tuft, Dick Weissman and Julia Hays

April 19, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

History Colorado is honored to present two legends of Colorado folk music, Harry Tuft and Dick Weissman, with special guest Julia Hays on the Tiny Library Concert stage this spring. Guitarist Harry Tuft is best known as the godfather of folk in the Rocky Mountain region. In 1962, he opened the Denver Folklore Center, which became the epicenter of the folk music revival in Colorado in the 1960s and ’70s. He was a founding member of the Colorado folk group Grubstake. Banjo master Dick Weissman started his musical career in the Greenwich Village folk scene in the 1960s and was a member of the folk trio The Journeymen with John Phillips (later of The Mamas & the Papas) and Scott McKenzie. He is co-author of the award-winning Folk Music Songbook, among many other publications. The two are joined by Julia Hays, a virtuoso fiddle player with eclectic roots in blues, jazz, country, Celtic and Irish fiddle styles.

The Tiny Library Concert series at History Colorado features acoustic shows by local Colorado musicians in the unusual and intimate setting of the museum’s Stephen H. Hart Library & Research Center.

Tickets: $10 non-members, $7 members of History Colorado
