The Prairie Scholars @ Bootstrap Brewing | Longmont | Colorado | United States

The Prairie Scholars, which formed in 2010, is a songwriting duet from the high plains of Texas currently living and performing in lovely Colorado. The Band is made up of husband and wife team, Andy and Jessica Eppler. Their hyper-prolific songwriting has been captured in multiple all-original albums which have received glowing reviews, both locally and internationally. With their focus on their community in Boulder County, The Prairie Scholars have worked hard to be a benefit to not only local listeners, but businesses as well, by driving tourism and out of town business into their beloved city of Longmont. The Longmont Times Call featured them in a story saying “The Prairie Scholars have been a community booster ever since they arrived from their native Texas several years ago.”

Andy Eppler @ 300 Suns Brewing
Dec 16 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Andy Eppler @ 300 Suns Brewing | Longmont | Colorado | United States

Born in Lubbock, Texas, in 1985 and raised by scholars in churches, Andy Eppler has always had a respect for the tradition of both southern wisdom and skepticism. He has become known for addressing high-minded topics such as humanity’s place in the universe, the role of authority, atheism, and community in his various art projects. Deemed “the future of Lubbock Music” at the Lubbock Centennial Celebration Opening Ceremony in 2008, Mr. Eppler is best known as a songwriter. He has written, recorded, and produced four solo albums of his original music, eight original albums with his wife as their band “The Prairie Scholars”, and one audio collection of his poems and short stories. Mr. Eppler has also recorded and produced five albums of solo material by his partner and bride Jessica Eppler. His work was featured and compared to that of Mac Davis, Terry Allen, and Butch Hancock in volume eight of Journal of the Society for American Music published by Cambridge University Press in 2014.

Though Mr. Eppler spends a lot of energy and time on recording albums and playing live shows with The Prairie Scholars, he also voraciously explores other art mediums. In 2014 he released a book titled “New Reason New Way: how my skepticism changed my art” which was about his life, art philosophy, and the functionality of creativity in the brain. In his new home of Boulder County Colorado, he has made time to create and sell dozens of psychedelically themed paintings in a large connected series called the “Yes Voice”. He is also the co-host of one of Boulder County’s most popular podcasts “The Prairie Scholars Podcast” which showcases long form interviews with local artists and community leaders. Today, he continues to push the boundaries of what an artist can be in the modern context by spending his extra time working locally in his community.

Bob & Marie Live @ St Vrain Cidery | Longmont | Colorado | United States

From the moment Bob laid eyes and ears on Marie he knew she was something special. Or unique. Though her rat-tail at age 9 turned him away for 11 years, Bob finally came around and joined forces with Marie to make beautiful, funny, heart-felt, love and indie rock/folk music. For the past 15 years they have made babies and ballads, playing with the likes of Chris Staples, Spoken Nerd, The Forecast, Into It/Over It, Jared Bartman, The Blackbird Revue and Jared Grabb. After relocating from Illinois to Colorado, Bob & Marie are looking forward to making you laugh and sing again.
