Dan & Margaret in Philadelphia, taking in some sights in-between the three WC20 anniversary concerts.

October was a month long celebration of 20 years of the World Cafe that cumulated with a weekend of amazing concerts. KUNC Member Dan Braun won an opportunity to see these shows up close and personal; so we tossed him a camera and sent him on his way. Check out his video from the shows and an incredible performance from Dawes with Mumford & Sons!

The final Friday, Saturday, and Sunday of October had to have hosted some of the best live performances that World Cafe has ever seen. Keep in mind, David Dye and the World Cafe have been interviewing and showcasing live performances from up and coming artists since 1991. Feist, the Indigo Girls, John Hiatt, Tedeschi & Trucks....  Don't take my word for it though, take Dan's!

That special surprise that was hinted at turned out to be Mumford & Sons, who got a chance to team up with Dawes at the Saturday show. Watch this incredible rendition of "When My Time Comes":

The World Cafe 20th Anniversary shows featured many more artists that we can fit in here. You can listen to sets from John Hiatt, Ani DiFranco, The Jayhawks, The Indio Girls and more HERE.

I’m not a Colorado native (did you know that "I'm from Missouri" means "I'm skeptical of the matter and not easily convinced?") but I have lived here for most of my life and couldn't imagine leaving. After graduating from Colorado State University, I did what everyone wants to do; I moved to the mountains and skied, hiked, and hid from responsibility! Our listeners in the mountains may know me from my time in Steamboat Springs and Vail or as the voice of the Battle Mountain Huskies Hockey team in Vail.
