In celebration of the lives of Eagle residents, Seth Bossung, Andy Jessen, and Adam Palmer, friends and family and the Vilar Performing Arts Center (VPAC) present a livestream musical tribute Sunday, February 28 featuring Custom 20, the Olora Brothers, and Hardscrabble and several other local musicians.
The loss of Bossung, Jessen, and Palmer is felt deeply in their families, the Eagle community, and beyond.
Fifteen local musicians will perform at this benefit concert, for which donations will benefit Vail Mountain Search & Rescue, San Juan Search & Rescue, and the Bossung, Jessen, and Palmer families. Elli Varas, Custom 20, the Olora Brothers, and Hardscrabble will perform throughout the evening. This event will be live streamed for free on the Vilar Performing Arts Center’s YouTube channel on Sunday beginning at 5pm, and all viewers are encouraged to donate through MobileCause.
“We believe that music and the arts can help us cope, celebrate and express just a glimmer of our deep gratitude and admiration for these men,” says Owen Hutchinson, the Executive Director at VPAC. “Each of them made such a lasting and positive impact in our community, and we hope this live streamed event will offer who knew them an evening to reflect, remember and rejoice all they brought to our lives.”
On Monday, March 1 a local restaurant effort to raise funds for these families through Bonfire Brewing beer, Gather ‘Round Week, will launch at more than 20 venues across the county. For more information about this celebration of life, contact Emily Hutto at firstname.lastname@example.org.
No in-person tickets are available to the public for this event. We hope everyone will join us from the comfort of their homes as we live stream the event from the VPAC stage.
