Good Old Days coverThe Good Old Days Now by The Prairie Scholars

On March 4, The Prairie Scholars releases its first full-studio album. At an expansive 20-tracks, the double album is unlike anything The Prairie Scholars have done before. “The Good Old Days Now” features the songs The Prairie Scholars have been charming audiences with over the last year and a half.

This collection of songs is dedicated to the band’s “wonderful community” in Longmont, which has made their “art lives so fulfilling and sustainable.” The liner notes say: “We feel proud and lucky to have found this city and within it, The Good Old Days Now.”

The band is made up of husband and wife team, Andy and Jessica Eppler. Their hyper-prolific songwriting has received glowing reviews locally and internationally. With a focus on their community, The Prairie Scholars have worked hard to be a benefit to not only local listeners, but businesses as well, by driving tourism to Longmont.

Check out the new music at a listening party at Rosalee’s Pizeria, 461 Min Street in Longmont, March 4. The band says: “We are so stoked to celebrate this new album and we can’t think of a better way than drinking local brews and eating the best pizza around with our beautiful community. The new album “The Good Old Days Now” will play in house during the event, so come down for a listen and celebrate this 20 song milestone with us.”
