Nathaniel Rateliff

The CA Concert evening kicks off by welcoming back Nathaniel Rateliff for an acoustic solo performance. ​Rateliff first performed at CA with his band, The Night Sweats, for the 2016 Concert. Described as “a Denver local folk-pop hero” by the New York Times, with Spin praising him for his “massive, alluring” voice, and Billboard dubbing him a “must hear,” Rateliff is a Colorado-based singer and songwriter whose influences stem from folk, Americana, and vintage rhythm and blues. Rateliff and his band have delivered acclaimed performances on Saturday Night Live and The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and were featured in a segment on CBS Sunday Morning. His Denver 2023 show sold out at Ball Arena, as did 10 shows at Red Rocks Amphitheater. Rateliff’s hits include “S.O.B.,”“And It’s Still All Right,” “Redemption,” and many others.

Margo Price and Her Band

​As with past CA Concerts, a brief intermission will follow Rateliff’s intimate set. This allows time for the Field House to be transformed to a club-style venue in preparation for Grammy-nominated Margo Price and her band to take the stage.

​The Nashville-based singer/songwriter launched her music career in 2016 with Midwest Farmer’s Daughter, marking the first time a solo female artist debuted in the top 10 of the Billboard Top Country Albums chart. Price has been the musical guest on Saturday Night Live and The Daily Show and was featured in a segment on CBS Mornings. She has also seen success performing in the UK, with her album reaching Number 1 on the UK Country Albums chart. In 2022, Price released her widely admired memoir, Maybe We’ll Make It. Nominated for Best New Artist in 2018 at the 61st Annual Grammy Awards, Price released her latest albums, Strays and Strays II, in 2023.

Check out the Spotify CA Concert 2024 playlist for a sample of solo acoustic songs by the amazing Nathaniel Rateliff and music by Margo Price and her band.

Series surpasses $1 million in support of Financial Aid

All net proceeds from the Concert support Colorado Academy’s financial aid endowment. For the 2023-24 school year, CA provided $5 million in financial aid to 18% of students. The school’s financial aid budget is also funded by The CA Fund and a percentage of tuition.

Singer-songwriter and actor Lyle Lovett helped inaugurate the CA Concert series in 2010.

The CA Concert series, launched in 2010 with the inaugural event featuring Lyle Lovett, has helped to raise more than a million dollars in support of financial aid. Other performers have included Mary Chapin Carpenter and Shawn Colvin in 2012, Bruce Hornsby in 2014, Big Head Todd & the Monsters and Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats in 2016, Preservation Hall Jazz Band and Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue in 2018, and Isaac Slade of The Fray and Rodrigo y Gabriela in 2022. In alternating years, CA hosts its biennial auction event.
