Reykjavik Calling is an annual musical event that pairs Icelandic and Denver musicians together for a truly unique free concert showcase. The concert is part of the overall Taste of Iceland series of events that unfold every year at various locations in Denver. Since it began in 2012, the Rekyjavik Calling showcase has created some remarkable collaborative moments between artists who had met in person only days before.

Matthew Vasquez and Kelly Winrich of Delta Spirit stopped by our studio for a live performance and conversation. We were fortunate to be able to spend the morning with them as they were in between tour stops back in 2010 in support of their album "History from Below". We checked in with them about the late Howard Zinn, Irish proverbs, and a whole lot more.

Local Gold: We had an opportunity to spend some time with Gregory Alan Isakov. He's certainly no stranger to the KGNU studios, having performed multiple times over the years. On this occasion, we caught up with him about his writing style and approach to instrumentation. We also spoke about his collaboration with the Colorado Symphony and the challenges of performing with an orchestra.

One of Canada's finest musicians, Afie Jurvanen, is best known by his stage name Bahamas. Afie stopped by to perform live in our studios shortly after the release of "Bahamas is Afie". That evening would be the first time that Afie and his band were the headliners for a show in Denver. The concert sold out and Bahamas mesmerized the audience at the Larimer Lounge with a brilliant show.

Shortly after the end of The Books, Nick Zammuto began work on developing a new band, Zammuto. They stopped by the studios for a live performance just before their first tour was set to begin with Explosions in the Sky. Previous to this studio session they had only three live shows under their belt. It was a rare moment to hear the birth of a band. Set List: Groan Man, Don't Cry, Too Late to Topologize, Yay, Shape of Things to Come

We had the honor of hosting The Budos Band at our live performance studio. The band came in after a now historic sold out show at the Larimer Lounge and played an incredible set of music. Joel Davis had a chance to catch up with the band and talk about their unique and deadly sound.
