Wowza! Did Fort Collins come alive with the sound of music last weekend or what?!? Bohemian Nights at NewWestFest is a special festival in so many respects. It is such a beautiful gift to the community. The music is free for the public but behind the scenes the musicians are paid and well taken care of. The love of live music is very much apparent and felt by all. Colorado artists were showcased and applauded for their talents. If you walk away with anything from this weekend, I hope it is to appreciate what a thriving musical city we live in and that you continue to support it year round.  After all, it is the gift that keeps on giving...
