Patrick Dethlefs Live @ Swallow Hill

Lindsay Giles McWilliams

Colorado based singer/songwriter Patrick Dethlefs performs in a live recorded concert at Swallow Hill.

Dethlefs delivered a set that opened with a few songs from Stays The Same and included a Townes Van Zandt cover, "Loretta." It was also a set that showed off the lyricism that Dethlefs is known for, playing his latest album Fall + Rise in its entirety. As the Examiner's Cal Huss writes, "Dethlefs pulled in an all-star cast of musician friends to premiere the brand new album, including Jason Hecker, Paul DeHaven, Macon Terry, and Sarah, Susan, and Mark Anderson. The focus was on the lyricism, but these cats can play."

This show was recorded during Patrick Dethlef's June 8th album release party for Fall + Rise at Daniels Hall. 

This program originally aired November 24th, 2012.

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.
