Mile High Stories is a project I’ve been working on with Daniel Weinshenker and Tim Roessler for a few years now. I just updated the Mile High Stories site, with a new wordpress format and youtube videos.
The new site includes ten new stories that were created for the “Italians of Denver” exhibit at the Colorado History Museum. The one I’m including here is one I worked on with Jess Girardi called “The Old Trombone”. Jess is a great guy who has been playing and teaching music in the Denver area for fifty years.
If you are interested in the experience of Italian-Americans, check out the Italians of Denver archive. And, we’re always looking for other stories of and by people in the Denver area. If you’ve got any suggestions definitely let me know.
