Greg Schochet and Katie Glassman

fiddle tunes • old Western swing • country

Katie Glassman’s love affair with the fiddle began at the tender age of nine. Inspired by old-time Texas music, she began playing by ear, and was soon winning numerous honors throughout the West. In 1998, she captured the National Junior Fiddle Championship in Weiser, Idaho, and two years later the National Young Adult Fiddle Championship. She is a three- time top five finalist in the National Grand Champion Division and in 2011, she won the National Western Stock Show Championship. 2013 was Katie’s biggest year yet for competing, as she took top honors in two of the country’s most prestigious contests: Walnut Valley, in Winfield, Kansas, and Rockygrass in Lyons, CO.

But Katie is no one trick pony when it comes to fiddling. She studied classical and jazz violin at the University of Colorado in Boulder, graduating with a BA in music performance and a certificate in jazz studies. In 2007 she became only the second American to attend the Centre Musique Didier Lockwood in France, the world’s foremost jazz violin school.

Greg Schochet is a full-time performer, teacher and producer in Boulder, Colorado. Equally adept on guitar and mandolin, he is fluent in number of acoustic and electric styles, including bluegrass, swing, and country.

A veteran of many touring and recording bands, his love of music and traveling has brought him to some of the most acclaimed venues in the country, including A Prairie Home Companion, Red Rocks, and the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, as well as the Rainforest World Music Festival in Malaysia.

Born and raised in the suburbs of New York city, Greg’s musical youth was framed by his father’s record collection and FM radio of the 70s and 80s. Combined with a deep love for all things traditional, twangy and old-timey, Greg’s musical sensibilities are wide-ranging and versatile.

He is an integral part of Colorado’s thriving roots music scene, and is a sought after instructor, session player, producer and collaborator.

Gamma Gallery Unveils Mural at City Star Brewing

150 150 City Star Brewing

Gamma GalleryGamma Gallery’s latest mural will be unveiled this Thursday at City Star Brewing in downtown Berthoud. “All In at City Star” is a commissioned painting that was created completely free-hand, using only spray cans (no stencils or etching) on the 700 square foot concrete canvas. Gamma will be putting the final touches on his masterpiece throughout the day, and the official unveiling will take place at 5pm. Guests can order a pint of “All In” from the beertenders, Curbed Hunger food truck will be serving on site, and Clandestine Amigo will perform on the beer garden stage at 6pm.

Gamma developed the concept for the mural inspired by City Star’s historic roots and the general brewery vibe, which aims to maintain Berthoud’s history. He has taken inspiration from artifacts unearthed during this year’s taproom expansion and incorporated the wood grain on the concrete wall from wood forms used to construct the building in the early 1900’s. It is an incredible honor to feature Gamma’s work at City Star Brewing.

Gamma Acosta grew up in Longmont, Colorado. Drawing since before he could remember, creativity and problem solving were always on his mind. After graduating from school, Gamma did not pursue art for quite some time; it wasn’t until years later and perfect circumstances that he found a new expression, public art. The world was his painting surface, he discovered, and he had a way with a spray can that took him beyond the hardened parameters of street writing.

Painting large-scale projects of his own design, month after month, his unintended career began to gain speed. Today, he’s working all the time: creating murals inside and out for businesses. Gamma almost exclusively uses spray cans to create the photo-realistic pieces he has become known for. View Gamma’s portfolio online at http://gammagallery.co.
