Boulder Native Wendy Woo Takes the Stage to Benefit EPH Foundation

As Colorado’s music scene has exploded over the past few years, one of its mainstays has been
Wendy Woo. Her energetic personality, musical skills, and spirited songwriting have made her a
media and fan favorite. The Wendy Woo Band is a Colorado favorite.
Woo has performed at top venues across the country including the Fox Theater and Red Rocks in
Colorado, the Bitter End and the Living Room in New York, the Hotel Cafe in Los Angles, the
Bluebird Café in Nashville, Sweetwater in Mill Valley, and Eddie’s Attic in Decatur, Georgia.
On May 14, Woo takes the stage at The Stanley Concert Hall as part of the 1 st Annual Estes Park
Jazz & Blues Festival. Proceeds from this event benefit Estes Park Health Foundation.

Wendy Woo
 "As an EMT, I've seen the lifesaving impacts of access to state-of-the-art technology and highly
trained staff firsthand. As an innovative performer and Colorado native, I look forward to taking
the stage to benefit Estes Park Health Foundation at the 1st Annual Estes Park Jazz & Blues
Festival. I'm excited to share my unique style with you and the stage with Chris Daniels & the
Kings and Mollie O'Brien & Rich Moore. I promise you will be glad you ventured to The
Stanley Concert Hall on May 14 to witness this performance and support Estes Park Health, a
rural, critical-access hospital serving the residents and visitors to the Estes Valley."

 

Grammy Award Winner Mollie O'Brien to take the stage in support of Estes Park Health Foundation

Mollie O'Brien and her husband, guitarist Rich Moore, have for nearly 30 years quietly made it their mission to find, mine, and reinvent other artists' songs. They are geniuses at the craft of interpretation in the way that great singers, since the beginning of popular American music, have made the songs of their era their own. As songwriters they add their own tunes to the canon of American roots music they inhabit and show us they’re completely at home with their musical selves.

“As if hospitals don’t have enough on their plates tending to their local population’s health and wellbeing in normal times, being at the forefront of care during these last two crazy years has proven that health care workers are dedicated, tireless, and deserving of all that we can do to help them in their mission,” said O’Brien. “Add to that the fact that Estes Park Health also serves its community with requests for help in Rocky Mountain National Park and with the fires and floods that now seem to hit this mountain town more frequently…well, there’s just not enough that we can do to help them. I’m excited to perform at The Stanley on May 14 for this event that will raise funds for Estes Park Health. I hope you’ll join me, Rich Moore, Wendy Woo, and Chris Daniels in celebrating this important community institution.”
