Joshua Davis & Mandolin Orange in the Wildflower Pavilion this month... [ Wildflower image ]

Just a few weeks ago, we rang in the Autumnal Equinox with the Mabon Concert featuring Adam Aijala and Ben Kaufmann. (Here are some gorgeous photos.) After a quick breather, the Wildflower Concert Series is back in action for 2 more magical Friday nights in Lyons this month...

Joshua DavisOn Friday, October 16, Joshua Davis brings the Wildflower to life with his eclectic, bluesy Americana. The Midwest native began his musical career with several stellar bands, including 2004 Telluride Bluegrass faves Steppin' In It. Last spring Joshua was invited to perform on NBC's The Voice, catapulting him to international attention, millions of online views, and an impressive 3rd place finish on the season finale!! Joshua's "world-weary croon filled with the gravitas and forthrightness of a Tom Petty" is widely admired by fellow musicians like Greensky Bluegrass and sure to bring goosebumps to the Wildflower. Longtime Planet Bluegrass friend and troubadour hero Danny Shafer opens the evening at 8pm. Tickets are available now at

Mandolin OrangeTickets are selling fast for this Friday's Planet Bluegrass debut of Mandolin Orange (October 9). Woven by the bittersweet threads of nostalgia and home, the North Carolina duo's sophomore album Such Jubilee is hailed by Paste Magazine as "an innate chemistry that's been honed in the studio, strengthened by the road, and refined by time." (Check 'em out!) Lyons' own Bonnie & Taylor Sims will be there too, kickin' off the party and setting the mood. Order your tickets now -- we're expecting this one to be sold-out by Friday night!
