Colorado Governor Jared Polis, AEG Presents, the Community Foundation of Boulder, and Colorado musician Nathaniel Rateliff announced a virtual benefit concert to support disaster survivors of the Marshall Fire.
The prerecorded concert features Rateliff along with more than 15 Colorado-based artists and popular national acts including the Avett Brothers, Lyle Lovett, Big Head Todd & the Monsters, Old Crow Medicine Show, Lake Street Dive, the Motet, Leftover Salmon, Dave Matthews, Michael Franti, Amos Lee, Brittany Howard, Sarah Jarosz, and more.
The concert went live online Feb. 28. Viewers can access the content for a minimum $10 donation. The cost of the ticket (and the fees!) goes directly to help Marshall Fire survivors through the Community Foundation of Boulder County.
“Music itself can be healing, and the funds raised by this event will go a long way toward helping Coloradans impacted by the Marshall Fire to rebuild their lives and communities,” said Gov. Polis. “We’re thrilled to be partnering together with AEG, Community Foundation of Boulder, and Colorado creatives whose talents serve as a powerful balm during a difficult time. If you’re able to donate to help our friends and neighbors who need our support now more than ever, this is a great opportunity to pay it forward while enjoying your favorite bands.”
“The Marshall fire was a devastating event,” said Rateliff. “Our neighbors to the north had their world turned upside down within a few hours. I am honored to do anything I can to help those affected by the fire get back on their feet.”
The Marshall Fire erupted in Boulder Country on Dec. 30, 2021. Dry conditions and high winds led to extensive property damage. More than 30,000 people had to be evacuated and over 1000 homes were destroyed.
