Paper Bird flies high

By Dani White Berthoud Recorder A vivacious sea of fans fills the whimsically old-fashioned Boulder Theater for a shoulder-to shoulder Paper Bird headliner concert.

In my short life-span (a work still in progress) I’ve listened to my favorite girl-cousin and her friends playing 45s, to the avant-garde collection of a high school buddy with three different LP disc-washers, to 8-tracks, the first Walkman, cassettes ...
