The Mt. Sopris Music Festival celebrates nearly two decades of showcasing local musicians on July 5. This year's line-up includes Miner Keys, Roaring Fork High School Jazz Band, Callin' Old Souls and The Wolf Tones. The festival's creator and curator Steve Standiford gives details about this and other summer music highlights on Express Yourself.
Let Them Roar created the new single, "I See My Light," to raise funds for sanctuary leaders in Colorado who are taking a stand against being separated from their families. Megan Tackett spoke with the band before debuting that single in Carbondale on Friday, June 21.
