Girlyman closed their triumphant set at last summer's Folks Festival with an encore singalong of this "old spiritual song." With overflowing dancing crowds spilling out of every entrance to the Wildflower, it was one of the most joyous and emotional moments of the festival. On Friday, March 9, we welcome Girlyman back to Lyons to open our 2012 Wildflower Concert Series.
Spend the full evening in our wonderful little town of Lyons. Enjoy one of our great restaurants (sushi, tapas, Mexican, brewpub, BBQ, pizza, and more). Play a few games of classic pinball. Then walk over to Planet Bluegrass to grab drinks at the Wildflower bar (New Belgium Beer, wine, and hot drinks). The Pavilion doors (and bonfire, weather-permitting) open at 7pm and music starts at 8. We can't wait to share a cozy winter night of music with you in the Wildflower Pavilion.
Informed by '60s vocal groups and infused with a witty musical playfulness, comedian Margaret Cho describes the irresistible folk-pop quartet: "It's the music of my heart and soul. Girlyman is the future and the past and the present."
Tickets for their March 9 show are already over three-quarters gone, so order yours while you still can at shop.bluegrass.com or 800-624-2422.
Then two weeks later we welcome back another Folks Festival favorite: Colorado singer-songwriter Danielle Ate the Sandwich on Friday, March 23. For her Wildflower debut, she'll be joined by Pueblo old-timey quintet (and recent performers on A Prairie Home Companion) The Haunted Windchimes.
