Spring Wildflower Concerts begin this Friday in Lyons... [ Wildflower image ]

Wood & Wire at RockyGrass (photo: Benko Photographics)With Spring officially upon us -- and a few pre-flood tulips beginning to bloom on the Ranch -- this Friday night (March 25) we open the 2016 Spring Wildflower Concert series with 2 bands from last summer's RockyGrass and Folks Fest stages...

Austin, TX-based quartet Wood & Wire brings together influences ranging from Led Zeppelin to Doc Watson for a sound that CMT calls: "Buoyant bluegrass that is in equal measures eclectic and energetic." Boasting members who have collaborated with bluegrass legends like Tony Rice, Peter Rowan and Vassar Clements, "they've got a near-perfect balance of youthful energy tempered by skilled musicianship" (Music City Roots). Last summer Wood & Wire won over Festivarian Nation with 2 compelling RockyGrass sets - on the main stage and in the Wildflower.

Taarka at Folks Fest (photo: Benko Photographics)Taking the stage right at 8pm, we welcome Lyons-own eclectic stringband Taarka. Led by husband-and-wife virtuosos David and Enion Pelta-Tiller, they draw musical influences from Romania and Appalachia, on tunes ranging from indie-folk to sophisticated instrumentals.

Tickets are still available for Friday (and all other upcoming Spring shows) at shop.bluegrass.com or 800-624-2422. As always, we charge no service fees on any tickets. Help spread the word by RSVP'ing to the events on Facebook.
