Talkin' Music - Birds of Play

Birds of Play

Birds of Play is a musical collaboration born from a mutual love of desert canyons, raging rivers, rocky mountaintops, and juice picnics.  These multi-instrumentalists and dearest of friends effortlessly weave together a unique tapestry of blues, bluegrass, folk, and funk into a glorious blend of humor, honesty, and harmony.

With a dynamic mix of sentimentality and playfulness, Birds of Play's original music will take you on a joyous journey filled with tales of love lost and found, ballads of wild places, and the radical idea that being happy for no reason at all is reason enough. Add in a smattering of bird calls and crowd-inclusive banter, and an evening with Birds of Play will surely leave you feeling all the feels and wanting more.

Their debut album, Anthrophony, was released mid summer 2019 and their second album will be released soon. They visited KVNF's Bamboo Room ahead of a public performance at Electric Mountain Lodge above Paonia.

A native Texan, Jeff was bitten by the Colorado "bug" after graduating from UT-Austin. He arrived in Paonia on the October full moon of 1978, and has been involved with KVNF since its earliest days. His first KVNF show was "Sunday Night Live," which featured live musicians performing in the original Garvin Mesa garage/studio.
