Final show of 2016 this Friday night in Lyons... [ Wildflower image ]

Taarka at 2015 Folks FestThis Friday night (November 11) we conclude the 2016 Planet Bluegrass music season with one final evening of music in the Wildflower Pavilion: Lyons' own Taarka with special guests Caribou Mountain Collective.

For 15 years, Taarka have been thrilling audiences around the country -- including the 2015 Folks Fest -- with their modern spin on European folk musics, along with flavors of bluegrass, old-time, Indian and Celtic. Taarka's lush live shows strike a spirited balance between lively instrumentals and well-crafted, songs incorporating sweeping folk-pop and popping gypsy elements.

Caribou Mountain CollectiveCaribou Mountain Collective quickly exploded onto the national scene after winning the 2014 RockyGrass band contest. With their mix of bluegrass and Americana, the Nederland quartet makes it seem "almost effortless to keep one foot on the traditional side of the fence, and the other dirty bare foot in the grassy hills of the high country" (Marquee Magazine).

After two consecutive sold-out shows in the Wildflower, tickets are still available for this Friday night season finale at or 800-624-2422. We'll open the Wildflower bar for beer, wine, and hot drinks at 7pm; Caribou Mountain Collective kicks things off at 8pm.
