"Joni Mitchell meets Sarah Silverman" is the best description we've heard for Fort Collins ukulele-toting singer-songwriter Danielle Ate The Sandwich. A star on YouTube and national public radio (ETown, Mountain Stage), Danielle won over last summer's Folks Fest audience with honest songs that are "cripplingly enchanting with lyrics telling the story of a generation coming of age in an age of uncertainty" (Westword).
Spend the full evening in our wonderful little town of Lyons. Enjoy one of our great restaurants (sushi, contemporary, Mexican, Nepalese, BBQ, pizza, brewpub, and more). Play a few games of classic pinball. Then walk over to Planet Bluegrass for the bonfire at 7pm (weather permitting) and drinks at the Wildflower bar (New Belgium Beer, wine, and hot drinks). The Pavilion doors open at 7pm and music starts at 8. We hope to see you tomorrow night in the Wildflower Pavilion.
Danielle shares the Wildflower stage tomorrow night (Friday, March 23) with Pueblo-based old-timey quintet The Haunted Windchimes. Recent guests on A Prairie Home Companion, host Garrison Keillor called them: "popular among the grey hairs, green hairs, purple hairs, and all over." Grounded in honeyed harmonies and spirited pickin', the Denver Post says the band has "perfected an old-timey hoedown sound, executed with passion and precision."
Tickets ($12 advance) are still available to spend a gloriously warm spring evening on Planet Bluegrass in Lyons. Order yours now at shop.bluegrass.com, over the phone at 303-823-0848, or at the door tomorrow night.
