Celebrating the music that ignites dancers, this Flamenco guitar concert features one of Denver's finest traditional guitarists, Steve Mullins. It is different from classical guitar -- the player holds himself differently and the guitar itself is meant to be played fast with less 'sustain' than a classic guitar. This helps to keep the fast-paced Flamenco pieces from sounding muddy. In the hands of master guitarist Steve Mullins, the passion and color of Flamenco music is a fiery pleasure.

The Denver Public Library is excited to announce the launch of Volume, our new music website featuring local bands and musicians. DPL has always been about reaching out to support our community, and we're looking to reinforce that goal by offering our customers free streaming music and downloads. Most of this unique content is not available in big box stores, so Volume steps in to fill that gap by supporting local artists and connecting the people of Denver to our vibrant music scene.
No Denver singer evokes the recordings of the early days of radio like Anne Rigley. Her voice is a beautiful blend of warm compassion with a hint of that old-fashioned metallic sound of a songbird behind a giant microphone. She breathes new life into classic songs and sentimental standards like It's Only a Paper Moon -- made famous in the film, Paper Moon (starring father/daughter team Ryan and Tatum O'Neal). For our Saturday concert, Ann is backed up by talented bass player, Joe Rigley and renowned banjo player, Eric Woods.

This detail of a knitted piece by expert fiber artist Ann Myhre is an example of one of the most exciting trends in knitting today -- swing knitting. Complex color schemes combine with a stitching technique called 'short rows' to create organic and structured squares.
