Playing Around: Jesse Cotton Stone

More than 10,000 bikers will roar into Cripple Creek this weekend for Teller County's largest event, the annual POW/MIA Recognition Ride, led by Sen. Ben Nighthorse Campbell. The only thing that could possibly drown out the sound of so many machines is the Cripple Creek Blues Festival at the new Gold Rush Outdoor Palladium.

Well-known regional bands will perform at the two-day festival, including Radio London, Emilio Emilio, Peace Sign, Ace Butler and the Aces and the Jennifer Lane Blues Band. Headlining the festival is Colorado Springs' own guitar legend in training, Jesse Cotton Stone.

Jesse is only 16, but he plays with the guts and experience of an old man. If you haven't seen him in a while, you might be a bit surprised -- Jesse's singing now, and he's grown a few inches as well.

Cripple Creek will be packed with more than just blues fans and bikers -- the streets will also be filled with gunfighters, football-playing cops, tattoo contest competitors, artisans, opera singers and probably the requisite mime or two.

Tickets to the Blues Festival are $10 to $18 and include both days. Call 877/858-GOLD to find out more.
