Colorado Has a Story to Tell

Join us in a Gold Hill cabin when Steve Stills—he wasn’t Stephen yet—plays an acetate of his “new project” (CSN’s unreleased first album) for a teenage Kenny Passarelli. Feel the magic of being in a room with Colorado’s Paul Conly as Jimi Hendrix tunes his guitar. Share the muse of the reclusive musical genius Dan Fogelberg. 

The only place you’ll find these memories, and hundreds more, is the Colorado Music Experience. Our podcasts, videos, profiles and photo galleries are one-of-a-kind windows into the history of Colorado music, those who make it and those who love it.

The Colorado Music Experience is an evolving archive. We will be listening to those with a great story to tell and add their voices to our podcasts. Look for new videos, profiles and photo galleries also to appear. We welcome your thoughts and ideas and look forward to sharing the Experience with you.


The Colorado Music Experience, a non-profit organization established to preserve the legacy of Colorado music, serves as a repository for informational and archival resources and presents them in intriguing, engaging and entertaining ways.
