Baur’s is back! And, so is listening in the Historic Baur’s Building which was originally a “virtual palace of sweets: cases of candy, cakes and a soda fountain” at 1512 Curtis Street in downtown Denver.
Last night I had to put down my glass of wine and get out my iPhone with perfect hipstamatic app to capture the performance of Bethany & Rufus under a small, but elegant theatrical curtain set at the end of rows of chairs in the bar area. Fans of world music were sitting and listening enthusiastically to every note while some traded sitting for enthusiastic dancing. Just out of view was special guest Brahim Frigane playing an instrument like a lute.
The group featuring singer, Bethany Yarrow, are tonight in Washington DC performing with Bethany’s father, Peter. Their passion, especially for Brazilian culture, and amazing musical skill was memorable.
