Peninsula’s Annual Music on the Porches to Feature More Than 20 Performances


A village-wide happening that celebrates music, arts and culture, Peninsula’s ninth annual Music on the Porches kicks off at 8 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 22, with a performance at the G.A.R. Hall by the Railsplitters, a contemporary bluegrass band that has emerged as a leader in the Colorado music scene.

The main event takes place at 11 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 23, as Peninsula merchants and residents alike will welcome musicians to their porches, shops and galleries. Performances will also take place on three main stage areas where artists will “make a joyful noise and fill the valley with music of all genres.”

This year, in addition to the 20-plus musical acts performing throughout the Village, program organizers will offer a series of free workshops and demonstrations along with master classes/workshops.

Virginian "Old Time" fiddler Erynn Marshall and husband Carl Jones will lead an “old time” open jam on the G.A.R. Hall patio, and Marshall and Jones will perform at an evening event at G.A.R. Hall with headliner Tim O'Brien and special guest Sean Watkins.
