We are really looking forward to opening for Larry Keel & Natural Bridge at The Stage Stop on Friday March 9th. There are several reasons for this. First, Keel is a flatpicking guitar master and a kick-ass singer-songwriter. He and his band, Natural Bridge, are very talented musicians. Both Del McCoury and Acoustic Syndicate have recorded LarryÂ´s material. Check out www.larrykeel.com to learn more. Thanks to Joe and Patrick for helping to make this happen. Second, we love The Stage Stop! The Stage Stop was originally built in 1868 as a barn and stage stop along the old stagecoach road from Black Hawk to Estes Park. It’s gone through a few changes since then, but still retains its western character. It is now a great restaurant, bar and music venue. The Stage Stop is located 6 miles south of Nederland on the Peak to Peak Highway alongside the railroad tracks and is at the foot of Rollins Pass. And third, March 9th is the start of the sixth annual Frozen Dead Guy Days winter festival in Nederland. What more could we ask for?!! Frozen Dead Guy Days honors an eccentric Norwegian, known as Grandpa Bredo up here in the mountains, whose family froze his body after he died of a heart attack. Why did they do this? Because they believe in cryonics. This is the science of using ultra-cold temperatures to preserve human life. It is a speculative technology that presumes medicine will someday be able to cure the disease that caused the death of the person who was frozen. Apparently, Grandpa Bredo had been to Nederland before he died and his family bought property in there in the early 1990Â´s with a vision to build a cryonics facility to serve numerous clients. It ought to be a fun night!
