Troubadours w/ Ramaya Soskin. Featuring Beth Preston & Julian Peterson.

September 21, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm MDT

The Troubadours:
“There is something downright spiritual happening in the music scene in Boulder. John Lennon asked us to imagine so many concepts of living life in peace, as one. And Boulder’s Troubadours is the personification of a music community sharing such big love for each other that the Collective has become larger than the individuals in it.” -Elephant Journal. “It’s the best of the local flavor in a myriad of expression, all in one place” -Boulder Weekly. The Troubadours showcases have been presented monthly for 18+ years at local Boulder venues such as the Fox Theater, Trilogy, B.side Lounge, Shine, The Laughing Goat and The Roots Music Project. Troubadours Alumni include such acts as Gregory Alan Isakov, Megan Burtt, Daniel Rodriguez, Clay Rose, Sturtz, Paul Kimbiris, Dechen Hawk, Thom Lafond, Max Davies, Toni Oswald, Alexandra Schwann and Kate Farmer among many others.

This month’s featured artists:

Ramaya Soskin:
“Blending echoes of Iron & Wine, Jeff Buckley and Ryan Adams”, the music of Ramaiya Soskin has captured the imagination of listeners with uniquely soothing cinematic songs. A veteran of the Boulder / Denver music scene, he’s performed at venues such as Red Rocks, the Fillmore, and the Boulder Theater. As a former member of Gregory Alan Isakov’s band he toured with artists such as Nathaniel Rateliff, Glen Hansard and Brandi Carlile throughout the US and Europe. Founder and curator of a monthly local songwriters showcase called Troubadours (18+ years), he is also a music mentor to young aspiring artists. With touching tales of love, loss & illumination, a sonic Hero’s Journey, his music holds a mirror to the heart.

Beth Preston:
“The thread of Beth’s voice connects the musical journey like a myriad of experiences in a young woman’s life. Her tone and lyrics are rooted in authenticity and reveals insight into the love she shares and how that resonates into the world. Beth’s patience, kindness, love and thoughtfulness rings through her songs. Listening to the album feels like a hug for the soul, or a prayer for world peace. ” ~Bridget Law of Elephant Revival

“Beth has really come into her own in so many ways on this new album. She commands such a wide breadth of stylistic variance and saturated understanding of emotive nuance. Beth’s melody sense and vocal control is second to none. I truly love this album and am positive this is just the beginning for her journey to musical renowned. ” ~Michael Travis of The String Cheese Incident, EOTO

“Beth Preston’s record Little Mirrors is a beautiful representation of an artist who exemplifies beauty and love. The production, vocals, arrangements and all around songwriting make Little Mirrors a wonderful listening experience.” ~Sarah Levin, Suitcase Town Music

Julian Peterson
Growing up in the mountains of Colorado, Julian fostered a music appreciation reflective of the world around him – raw, rootsy, and rich with colors. His music gathers elements from country blues, old r&b and folk music and combines them with a groove-based, indie rock sound.

Peterson’s compelling stage presence is that of an old bluesman. He carries an intense passion beyond his years, trading between soulful vocals, and sweet solo melodies with his 1960’s Gibson. He leads his own trio -Nick D’Agostino (drums) and Reuben Cainer (bass), two dynamic players who aren’t afraid to get dirty and electric, or quiet and tender as the rest of them.

Peterson’s played thoroughly in the New York circuit, as well as in folk and blues festivals along the east coast. He has toured nationally as well, including the first national tour of Greenday’s musical “American Idiot,” where he performed as their guitarist. After living in New York/Brooklyn for seven years, he recently found himself back in his home state of Colorado, performing his own music, and providing guitar support for Denver’s Megan Burtt & The Cure for Love, and a new project called Black Moon Howl.

Highlights:– Songwriting Achievement Award Scholarship (’05) and the SESAC Songwriting Scholarship (’06).– First place Berklee Songwriting Competition (’06)– Julian has opened and shared the stage with veteran artists such as: grammy award-winning Shelby Lynne, Keb Mo’, Susan Werner, Otis Taylor; and fellow New York comrades Lucious, Kyle Patrick (Click 5), Sydney Wayser, and Jen Hirsh.- Awarded Best Singer/Songwriter at the Hoboken Music Awards, 2009.– Awarded Best Album of Year for “Get On This Train” at the Hoboken Music Awards, 2010.– Released “Get Down” single (2012), with dance producer Pink Stallone on Generatto Records.– Julian was chosen to create original music for Victoria’s Secret “How to Measure Your Bust” online tutorial.
