      Returning for its third year on Sunday, November 13th, Uplift: FoCo will inspire community growth through exceptional local music, with all proceeds benefiting the new Uplift Scholarship. This scholarship provides mentors and funding directly to youth in to expand their access to music. The house band is a handpicked group of Northern Colorado's best musicians who will be accompanied by unique Fort Collins songwriters and youth musicians.
      The Uplift: FoCo house band includes:
      Eric Thorin on bass (Peter Rowan, Bonnie Paine, more)
      Joe Lessard on fiddle (Head For The Hills, Whiskey Blanket)
      Eric Wiggs on guitar (Masontown, Honeytree Duo)
      Dusty Rider on banjo & pedal steel (The Railsplitters)
      Russick Smith on mandolin & cello (Shovelin’ Stone)
      Jordan Pasquin on drums (Write Minded)
      With an opening set by:
      Christine Alice
      And special performances from:
      Cary Morin
      Hannah Rodriguez
      The evening will also include a Silent Auction & Art Show featuring items based in and uniquely Northern Colorado. Plus there will be a live painter, limited edition merchandise, prize giveaways, and more.
      Uplift: FoCo is a network connecting human service agencies, music program providers, musicians, venues, and studios who are aligned with expanding access to music for youth, particularly teenagers from system-involved, low income, and broken home families. Youth will receive scholarship and mentorship support alongside open access to this network, building youth-defined pathways into the music world. Our annual event is a showcase and celebration of the Uplift: FoCo community.
