Touring with just her dog and a plethora of instruments (ranging from toy piano to drums to, of course, violin), Emily paid OpenAir a visit before her recent show in Boulder.
CPR Performance Studio
The Colorado Pubic Radio Performance Studio provides a stage to showcase the depth and variety of both classical, and new and independent music coming to, and from, Colorado. CPR's OpenAir also offers a podcast of interviews and performances from select musicians, and additional performances from the archive available here.

After longtime friends Will Walden and Matt McGuire left Southern California to attend the University of Colorado at Boulder, the musicians soon transformed their dorm rooms into studios and adopted the moniker StaG. The band makes gentle, reverb-heavy pop music and recently released a new single to follow its 2011 full-length, "Rifle Meeker". Now a quartet, StaG stopped by OpenAir to play some new songs and chat about the next record the guys plan to release this summer.
