“…these are pros. They know the first downbeat will come and when it finally does, Tuft looks up at me with a smile of pure glee on his face — the kind I’ve only seen on the face of someone in love.

A lot can be said about the man behind that smile. Harry Tuft is the founder of the Denver Folklore Center, progenitor of Swallow Hill music and has promoted some of the most legendary shows in Denver during its hippie heyday, bringing the likes of Joan Baez, Taj Mahal and even Bob Dylan himself to the city.”
