‘One Track Heart: The story of Krishna Das’

“One Track Heart: The story of Krishna Das” will be shown at 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 4, at CMC in Rifle. In 1970, Jeffrey Kagel walked away from the American dream of rock ‘n’ roll stardom, turning down the chance to record as lead singer for the band soon-to-be the Blue Oyster Cult. Instead, he sold all his possessions and moved from the suburbs of Long Island to the foothills of the Himalayas in search of happiness and a little-known saint named Neem Karoli Baba. “One Track Heart: The Story Of Krishna Das” follows his journey to India and back, witnessing his struggles with depression and drug abuse, to his eventual emergence as Krishna Das, world-renowned spiritual teacher and Grammy nominated chant master. Tickets for the film are $10 in advance at or $13 at the door. For info, contact Misty Frontella at 970-948-5362 or
