Join Nick Forster’s Hippy Bluegrass Church at the Boulder Theater!
After 41 years in the internationally acclaimed Bluegrass band, Hot Rize, and almost 30 years as eTown’s Host, Nick Forster continues to bring people together through music! And this time, he is bringing his brand of “guilt-free gospel” to his home town of Boulder, Colorado with a recurring community sing-along paired with poetry readings, story-telling, and good vibes.
In February of 2019 Nick hosted the first ever “Hippy Bluegrass Church” service at eTown Hall - leading everyone through an energetic and thoughtful gathering backed by an amazing cast of bluegrass musicians. What is clear from the response to the few events we have hosted so far is that there is a real need for us to gather in community. In fact, public support has been so huge that on May 19th, Hippy Bluegrass Church is moving to the Boulder Theater!
Even for those who are in the habit of singing, it is time for us all to raise our voices together. Start the day gathering with friends and other music lovers (of all ages) to sing songs like I’ll Fly Away, A Beautiful Life, I Saw the Light, Angel Band and other staples from the genre. Poetry, good energy, and other offerings will be made along with the music.
