Since the band’s formation in 2007, Paper Bird, which plays the United Center in Idaho Springs, Sept. 27, has been playing its joyful blend of indie folk, blue-eyed soul, and rock to audiences nationwide.
Paper Bird’s live performances showcase the group’s diversity and “good-time vibe.” The band’s seven members’ rare and beautiful approach to music have led them to be featured on NPR’s All Things Considered, in a New York Times story about up-and-coming Denver bands, and most recently listed in Paste Magazine’s Top 10 Colorado Bands to Watch.
The current lineup includes Mark Anderson on drums, his sister Sarah Anderson on vocals and trumpet, Paul DeHaven on guitar, Esme Patterson on vocals, her sister Genevieve Patterson on vocals, and former Idaho Springs resident Caleb Summeril on banjo, guitar and bass.
After extensive touring in 2012, Paper Bird returned to the studio to craft their latest album, “Rooms,” released March 2013. A remix of the album was released in 2014.
Tickets are $22 at the door, or purchase discount tickets at Java Mountain Roasters, Two Brother’s Deli in Idaho Springs and Tomay Memorial Library in Georgetown.
