Lyle Lovett and John Hiatt put on an amazing concert for a packed and enthusiastic house at Riverwalk Center
BRECKENRIDGE — Lyle Lovett and John Hiatt wowed the crowd at the Riverwalk Center Thursday night. Their personalities, humor, style, great singing voices and beautiful guitar work made the show a rare pleasure. Anyone in the audience not already a fan walked away as one by the end of the evening.
The stage presence and synergy between the two is mesmerizing. They clearly love what they do, and the audience loved watching them do it. Their banter was full of easy and understated humor and was well appreciated. They mostly sang separately, but did harmonies on two songs, including “Thing Called Love” in this video:
Also, check out these photos from the recent U2 show in Denver.

Dem bones just keep on comin’
The amazing ice-age fossil finds just keep on coming at Ziegler Reservoir in Snowmass Village. Denver Museum of Nature & Science crews have pulled more than 100 prehistoric bones from the dig site since they began their work earlier this month. The team is now more than a week into its largest-ever fossil excavation in very challenging spring weather conditions. “It’s extremely rewarding work, thanks to these amazing finds so far,” said Kirk Johnson, leader of the museum’s excavation team and vice president of the research and collections division. “With only 40 days to go we are shoveling like mad in a race against time and we continue to bump into bone after bone.” Read the story in the Aspen Daily News, and learn more about the project at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science Snowmastodon Project webpage.

The 'lost & found' Antarctica photoblog was fourth on the most-viewed story list.
Water, fire and tornados …
SUMMIT COUNTY — News coverage ranged far and near the past week in Summit Voice, with a couple of stories on the big water deal between the Front Range and the West Slope taking the second and third spots in the most-viewed list, which is based on a running seven-day total that changes every 24 hours.
The top story was an overview of the continuing La Niña weather pattern that has kept Summit County cold right into the start of May while also being pinpointed as a possible factor the deadly southern tornado outbreak. A couple of Breckenridge stories also made the list, as did the “Lost and Found” photoblog from Antarctica.

There`s a lipstick sunset
Smeared across the August sky
There`s a bitter sweet perfume
Hanging in the fields
The creek is running high
BRECKENRIDGE – A June show at the Riverwalk Center with Lyle Lovett may be John Hiatt’s first appearance in Breckenridge, but his impressionistic lyrics often evoke the wide open spaces of the West. Hiatt is one of the most respected and influential American singer-songwriters, and his songs have been covered by an impressive variety of top artists, including Bonnie Raitt, Eric Clapton, Jimmy Buffett, and Keith Urban.
Lovett has won four Grammy Awards, including Best Male Country Vocal Performance and Best Country Album. The interplay and immense talent of Lovett and Hiatt up close and personal is an experience not to be missed. Hear their storytelling mastery not only in the songs they sing, but in the insightful tales they offer up between songs.
