Leah is originally from Conifer, Co and has resided in Durango for two years. She has been singing since birth and playing guitar since she was 20 years old.

Leah started street performing on the 16th Street mall in Denver then continued just that while traveling around the states. She ended up in Key West, FL where her first official gig was booked. Leah continued there for eight years as a full-time musician before coming to Durango.   Leah mainly plays 60’s ear fold and some old country and contemporary music. Her major influences are her dad, Ani Difranco, Billy Joel, Joni Mitchell, and Tori Amos.
Live Music with Terry Rickard

Terry has been entertaining Strater guests and locals for years! Terry grew up playing in rock bands around the Boston area before moving to southern California. In the 80’s and early 90’s he played all over Orange and L.A. counties as a solo guitarist-vocalist. He played in many fine clubs and restaurants such as the Rusty Pelican in Newport Beach and Captain Jack’s in Sunset Beach, just to mention a couple. He now lives in southwest Colorado and plays at resorts, clubs and restaurants throughout the Four Corners area. Terry’s musical roots are classic rock, but after living in Colorado for some time he can also do a full night of country music. He can also mix in some blues, reggae, contemporary rock and his own original compositions. Terry also has an excellent three piece band that plays a wide variety of music.
