Redstone serves up ‘Magical Moments’

REDSTONE – The Redstone Community Association’s free Magical Moments Summer Concert Series offers several evenings of musical enjoyment along the banks of the Crystal River, beginning tonight with Howard Berkman & Big Bottom at 6 p.m. in Redstone Park. The six-concert series will continue on select Saturday evenings throughout the summer, except for the final concert which will be held on Sunday, Sept. 5 (Labor Day weekend). The Redstone music series has been going on for nine years now, thanks to the efforts of the Redstone Community Association and key sponsors, said the association’s Lisa Wagner. “We’re happy to be able to get the community and friends and family together in this beautiful area that Redstone is,” Wagner said. “All the concerts are free, and that’s what makes it unique.” That’s due in large part to the event’s primary sponsor, Bighorn Toyota, plus Alpine bank and several local businesses. Bands will perform from 6-8 p.m. on concert nights, except at the Sept. 5 show, which will be from 5:30-7:30 p.m. In past years, the concerts have drawn upwards of 100 people, which is a pretty big crowd for such a small community, Wagner said. Redstone Park is situated along the Crystal River, so it’s a good opportunity to spend a weekend evening enjoying the environment and the diversity of music offered. Many of this year’s bands are new to the event, but the line-up includes some returning musicians, such as slide guitarist Kraig Kenning and regional favorites, the Strolling Scones.Other sponsors of this year’s concert series are: Avalanche Outfitters of Redstone Stables, Avalanche Ranch Cabins & Antiques, KMTS, Crystal Dreams Bed & Breakfast & Spa, Redstone Inn, Crystal Valley Echo and Marble Times, Redstone General Store and the Redstone Art Foundation.
