Crested Butte Mountain Resort Announces Summer CB Unplugged Line-Up

Free music series returns to the Wildflower Capital of Colorado


MT. CRESTED BUTTE, Colo. – Aug. 7, 2018 – Over the past three winter seasons, Crested Butte Mountain Resort’s (CBMR) CB Unplugged concerts have become staples of the winter events calendar. Featuring nationally touring artists in an intimate setting, the first summer CB Unplugged concerts will take place Sept. 1 and Oct. 6, 2018.

Each CB Unplugged concert is free to attend and is held at CBMR’s main Base Area restaurant, Butte 66. Featuring a large outdoor deck with amazing views of Mt. Crested Butte, Butte 66’s venue offers a picture perfect setting for après music.

The first CB Unplugged of the summer season takes place on Sept. 1 as Brent Cowles steps to the stage. A Denver native, Cowles blurs the lines between boisterous indie rock, groovy Rhythm & Blues and contemplative folk.

Kyle Hollingsworth helps round out CBMR’s summer season with a concert on Oct. 6. Revered by fellow musicians and fans for his ability to write and perform in a mosaic of styles – from rock to classical, ragtime to bebop – Hollingsworth continues to make a name for himself through solo performances and as the keyboardist for the internationally acclaimed String Cheese Incident.

Thanks to a generous sponsorship from the Town of Mt. Crested butte, all CB Unplugged concerts are free and begin at 4 pm in Butte 66. New this summer, CBMR will partner with local nonprofit organizations at each show to create unique community engagement, outreach and fundraising opportunities through CB Unplugged performances. CBMR will partner with the Crested Butte Land Trust for the Sept. 1 show and KBUT Community Radio on Oct. 6. Resort partner Odell Brewing Co. will also give away a free pair of Odell branded ROMP skis during Kyle Hollingsworth’s set on Oct. 6 (must be present to win). Visit to stay up to date on all the events happening at Crested Butte Mountain Resort throughout the year.
