Welcome Home!

By Lyons Bluesologist, David McIntyre

Hopefully by the time you read this a lot of folks will be trickling back to their homes in Lyons. If the schedule for turning on all the utilities is correct many of us who live north of Main Street, as well as the businesses on Main and High Street will be able to open their doors and occupy their homes with full services. My neighborhood received power last week and subsequent areas of town will get up and running over

Crushed mascara
Pollen ground by river stone
To dye dark the cotton threads
You perch your body

Living In The Aftermath of an 500 year flood-Lyons Strong

By Lyons Bluesologist, David McIntyre

Not to state the obvious, but what a mess. I am one of the lucky ones living on higher ground in Lyons. There are so many friends and peers in Lyons in very bad shape it continues to tug at my heart.

Sundays in September

By Dave McIntyre, Lyons Bluesologist

Sundays at Oskar Blues in Lyons have become my favorite shows, I love the more mellow music and enjoy watching the youngsters and oldsters dancing and enjoy the tunes together. These are all early 6 to 9 p.m., free, and all ages’ shows, and are usually very well attended. I have often been asked why we don’t charge for these shows; the answer is Dale and I want to give some free music back to the community as a thank you for all their support in helping us bring live music to Lyons. In September we have a

Music And Fun For The Whole Family

This is the fifteenth year of the free Thursday Night Summer Concert Series in Sandstone Park, sponsored by the Lyons Parks & Recreation Department. The event has grown yearly since its inception, and has really taken off this year with the addition of food trucks, the Lyons Farmette’s farmers market, local booths offering massages, and the Lyons Golden Gang selling wine, beer, and soft drinks. The music goes from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., with bands who have ties to Lyons playing for us.

I started booking the bands and helping with their sound almost a decade ago it has been a wonderful, enjoyable time; seeing all the youngsters dancing and running around, and their parents and friends relaxing and enjoying the music.  I meant to write this article earlier this summer but something always came up. But I do want to thank Danny Shafer and his band, Jeff Scroggins & Colorado, The Blue Canyon Boys, and Ash & Andria Ganley with Terry Kishiyama for their

The Jamestown Mercantile

by Linda L. Osmundson

The sign on the door read “Closed” and the times of operation stated, “Monday, 4:00.” Still, a car, with the driver’s door open, sat alongside the road in front of The Merc (short for Mercantile), located in the small town of Jamestown. A neighbor offered to go inside to get Rainbow.
