      Cuchara Summer Days & Nights

      Since 2001, Claude and I have hosted many house concerts with many guests such as Keith Sykes, Susan Gisbon, Ray Wylie Hubbard, John Inmon, Jed (Zimmerman) & Kelley (Mickwee), Kevin and Dustin Welch, The Trishas, Rodney Brannigan, Larry Joe Taylor and band, Davin James, Chuck Pyle, Michael Hearne & South by Southwest to name just a few. We've always had a passion for live music and the live music scene in Huerfano County has been gaining momentum for the last several years. This year we decided to move it out of the house so that we can share our passion with more people and give folks an opportunity to see and experience a new venue for music on the mountain! A new concept to help you enjoy great live music in breathtaking beautiful scenery on the Cuchara Mountain Mercantile Deck (Old Baker Creek Restaurant) with the view of Cuchara Mountain Park in front of you, around you and resonating sweet sounds of great live music while enjoying your picnic with the bright blues sky above and the running waters of Baker Creek below. Come to Cuchara for a summer afternoon with one of our favorite local musicians Ken Saydak and Clarksdale, MS {e_description}#x5b;the 'crossroads of the blues'{e_description}#x5d; great Lucious Spiller! We all know and love of our local, once Chicagoan, great blues pianist and songwriter Ken Saydak and can never get enough of his licks and lyrics. But this summer day he will be joining what Bo Diddley exclaimed after watching and performing with Lucious, 'I done played with a bunch of musicians all over the world. But, son, you got it!" This will be a show not to be missed!! Bring a camp chair and your picnic up to the park! Play some disc golf! Take a hike! Ride your mountain bike! Hopefully the old forest putt putt will be renewed once again (volunteers are working hard!) Then sit, listen and enjoy some great music while breathing in the clean mountain air and enjoying the sunshine after a loooong winter and spring rains! The Cuchara Mountain Mercantile is set to be open in case your forgot something or would like to add something to your picnic/experience.
