Spring concert series at A-Basin begins

Arapahoe Basin’s Spring Concert Series welcomes Coral Creek on Saturday, April 30 from 1–4 p.m. outside in the Base Area Plaza. The shows are always free.

Coral Creek is a Colorado band on the rise, featuring a diverse catalog of original music spanning the genres of rock, country/bluegrass, cajun, folk and island music. While the new self-titled album sits squarely in the Americana category, Coral Creek live performances transport audiences from the beaches of the Caribbean, down to the bayou and back up high into the Colorado Rockies — with instrumentation ranging from mandolin and fiddle to congas and steel pan. Featuring the original songs of Chris Thompson, Bill McKay (formerly of Leftover Salmon and Derek Trucks Band) and Luke Bulla (of Lyle Lovett Band) performing original songs as well as Americana classics by The Band, Grateful Dead, Peter Rowan and Neil Young.

Thomas’ local popularity has exploded since he recently participated as a contestant on NBC’s “The Voice.” The show starts at 10 p.m.
