Tix still available for Friday's show at Planet Bluegrass in Lyons... [ Wildflower image ]
 

The Hillbenders"If you're not moving while the 'Benders are playing, there's something wrong..." After a full-house for last weekend's opening celebration, this Friday we're excited to welcome one of the stand-out hits of last summer's RockyGrass: The Hillbenders.

Winners of the 2009 Telluride Bluegrass Festival band contest, AcoustiCana Journal calls The Hillbenders "undeniably one of the most exciting young bands on the bluegrass acoustic roots scene." The charismatic Missouri quintet balances sophisticated, infectious arrangements with a passion for connecting with an audience. While their lively, high-energy stage show has been featured at festivals across the country (and their Compass Records debut has reached #3 on national bluegrass radio charts), this Wildflower Concert will be one of their first non-festival concerts on Colorado's Front Range.

Finnders & YoungbergWe open the evening with an emotionally rich set from Finnders & Youngberg. Led by a 2-time winner of the Merlefest Songwriting Contest, and past winners of both the Telluride and RockyGrass band contests, the acclaimed Colorado quintet delivers classic bluegrass, tried-and-true honky tonk, country swing, and skillfully spun folk tales ranging from heartbreakers to glass raisers.

Tickets are still available (with no service fees, of course) at shop.bluegrass.com, 800-624-2422, or in-person at The Stone Cup in Lyons.
