Billy Strings, Taarka added to spring Wildflower series... [ Wildflower image ]

Billy Strings at RockyGrass (photo: Benko Photographics)With exactly 2 weeks 'til the opening of our 2016 Wildflower Concert Series, we're excited to share a few additions to our spring lineup...

When we heard that guitar slinger Billy Strings would be back in Colorado, we made sure to find a spot on our April lineup: Friday, April 15. With his youthful energy and punk-ish edge -- grimacing, growling, and head-banging his way through standards and his own super-charged originals -- Billy earned a raucous standing ovation for his blistering Sunday afternoon RockyGrass set last July.

Taarka at Folks Fest (photo: Renee Ramge)Sounding the first Wildflower notes of 2016, we're thrilled to welcome Lyons own' Taarka to open the Wood & Wire show on Friday, March 25. Veterans of last year's Folks Festival, Taarka balance well-crafted songs and spirited instrumentals that put a modern spin on Western and Eastern folk traditions.

To celebrate the release of their new album, SHEL is giving free CDs to the first 100 ticket orders for their April 29 show. With the help of Dave Stewart (the Eurythmics) and 6-time Grammy-winning producer Brent Maher, SHEL's latest album Just Crazy Enough twists and pushes their acoustic sound in exciting new sonic directions.

Tickets for all shows are on sale now at or 800-624-2422. As always, there are no service fees on any tickets and parking is free and convenient on the Planet Bluegrass Ranch.
