Music returns to Wildflower Pavilion in Lyons this Friday, March 27... [ Wildflower image ]

Solar panels on the new Wildflower PavilionIt's been an epic 18-month journey to get us to tomorrow's re-opening concert with Ellis and special guest Justin Roth

For 7 years our intimate little year-round concert venue along the St. Vrain River hosted unforgettable evenings -- from Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros, Greensky Bluegrass, Gregory Alan Isakov, and Tim O'Brien, to the annual Mabon Concerts with Adam & Ben and maybe the largest gathering of Colorado women in bluegrass ever. 

Ellis returns to the Wildflower Pavilion on Planet Bluegrass, March 27Then the September 2013 floods came, devastating Lyons, Planet Bluegrass, and the Wildflower Pavilion. We've spent the last 18 months redesigning, rebuilding, adding solar panels and other improvements, and preparing (Check out this Facebook photo gallery). And tomorrow night our next great acoustic adventure on Planet Bluegrass begins anew...

Tickets are still available for Friday's reopening show (March 27) with whole-hearted singer-songwriters Ellis (a beloved veteran of the Folks Festival, Wildflower, and A Prairie Home Companion stages) and special guest Justin Roth (author of the Lyons flood recovery anthem "Rise"). Get your tickets now at 303-823-0848 or (with no service fees, of course). Doors open at 7pm and the music starts at 8pm.

--- Grab dinner at one of our fine local restaurants (BBQ, anyone?). Then head over to the Planet Bluegrass Ranch for a great evening of music in our newly rebuilt "cathedral of bluegrass." We'll light the bonfire (weather permitting) and begin serving drinks at the Wildflower bar (New Belgium Beer, wine, and hot drinks) at 7pm. Justin Roth takes the stage at 8pm. It's going to be a magical Spring of music in the Wildflower Pavilion. We can't wait to welcome you back.
