Niwot-born Willowdale Live took to the stage with its opening show at the Left Hand Grange in Niwot on Friday, Aug. 9. Co-creators Andy Mann and Nick Dunbar presented a free double feature to the full house.
First, award-winning National Geographic photographer-filmmaker Mann captivated the audience with the saga of his unconventional and awe inspiring career path in the presentation “Summits to Seas.” These days Mann’s camera captures his undaunted expeditions with cutting edge marine scientists making him a powerful vanguard in the protection of the earth’s oceans.
Next up was Dunbar’s band 300 Days playing the original bluegrass, folk, and Americana tunes they perform across the Front Range. With Dunbar on guitar, Melissa McGinley on fiddle, and Dave “Pump” Solzberg on upright bass, they filled the hall with their foot stomping and sweet melodies.
Willowdale Live has booked a monthly show featuring nationally known performers through the end of the year at the Grange. For more information on upcoming performances, visit www.WillowdaleLive.com
