Chillin’ at Chipeta
Now there’s one more cool reason to visit Chipeta Solar Springs Resorts this winter and spring! “Chillin at Chipeta” is a winter music and dining experience that can be packaged with your Chipeta Resort stay for the weekend. Taking the entertainment stage on select weekends through May, the Chipeta Winter Chill Series features entertainers who are well known throughout the Ridgway area and southwestern Colorado.
The Four Corners Café serves as Chipeta’s social hub for the Winter Chill Series that adds the hot culinary talent of Honga Im of Telluride fame. Im presents a delicious buffet of mouthwatering Asian Fusion specialties that includes selections like Skuna Bay salmon avocado rolls, yellow tail tuna rolls, smoked salmon rangoons, potstickers, hot curry with shrimp and mussels, and blackened tofu with peanut sauce.
Scheduled live music events and headliners performing at Chipeta Resort through May include:
A local Ridgway favorite, Bonewagon merges an original acoustic rock sound with eclectic influences. The band has played multiple events at Chipeta, including KVNF’s String Fest in 2015 and at the Sherbino Theater.
- March 19–Robby Overfield Band
Robby Overfield blends the art of storytelling and genuine lyrics with a powerful voice to compliment an encapsulating listening experience. Stretching his soulful Detroit roots all the way to the rocky skyline of Durango, Overfield performs songs that transform listeners by the power of music and emotion.
- April 16–David Nunn & the Bad Habits
Raised in the south and heavily influenced by early Allman Brothers music, David Nunn blends blues rock with jazz rhythms. His “Bad Habits” band continues to evolve, with a diverse set list of blues, rock, country and guitar oriented jams.
- May 20-21–San Juan String Fest
The 2015 line-up included John Cowan, Drew Emmitt and Grant Farm with Tyler Grant.
When you’re staying at Chipeta Resort from May through September and looking to indulge in casual tapas or happy hour drinks, this boutique Colorado resort features regional wines, beers and spirits at its Sky Bar. You’ll also find live entertainment during the summer on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday nights performed by a range of singer/songwriters and local bands.
