Last year, Steve’s Guitars owner Steve Standiford was thinking about all the great art and music happening in Carbondale over the summer, and he wanted to do something to draw attention to that scene. So for the first week of summer, he gathered all the events, live music and gallery information that he could and put it on a poster around town. He named that week Carbondale Arts & Music Week.

But Standiford’s efforts went beyond compiling events that were already happening. The attention he drew to the week inspired some businesses and arts organizations to plan events that weren’t going on before.

“Last year it did stimulate the Roaring Fork Beer Company to have live music, and they have regular live music now,” Standiford said.

Now in its second year, the June 19-27 arts celebration will hopefully bring even more happenings to Carbondale, Standiford said.

“I do hope that it stimulates more,” he said. “There are just a heck of a lot of things going on.”
