Monocle Band's CD release concert this Friday in Lyons [ Wildflower image ]
 

MonocleAfter making their Wildflower debut at the sold-out Front Country show last fall, this Friday night (October 20), we welcome back Colorado's own Monocle Band to celebrate the release of their 2nd full-length CD, with special guests Jon Stickley Trio.

Monocle Band's creative partnership was born in 2010 when a storyteller steeped in psychedelic realism (Bill Huston) met a songstress of crystalline purity (Watergirls member Monica Marie). With muddy blues, keening old-time fiddle tunes, country rock rave-ups, and impressionistic folk songs as inspiration, the band grew to a quintet with fiddle, bass, and drums. This Friday night they celebrate the release of their 2nd full-length "The Clearing." Marquee Magazine writes: "Monocle's 2 distinct songwriters bring a highly developed focus to storytelling and character-driven songs that sets them apart from many of their peers."

Jon Stickley TrioNorth Carolina's Jon Stickley Trio has roots in gypsy jazz, bluegrass, and hip-hop in an "exhilarating all-acoustic swirl" (Acoustic Guitar Magazine). The innovative trio combines Jon Stickley's rapid-fire flatpicking guitar with sultry and wild fiddle melodies set over deep drum grooves. The New York Times praises: "there's hardy cohesion among the players... And when Mr. Stickley and friends turn to bluegrass they sound both respectful and free."

Tickets are still available (with no service fees, of course) at shop.bluegrass.com or 303-823-0848. We'll open the Wildflower doors and Pavilion bar (beer, wine, and hot drinks) at 7pm; Jon Stickley Trio takes the stage at 8pm.
