with special guest
Follow the Fox
Rogers Hall, 4th and High Street, Lyons CO
Doors 7pm; Concert 8pm .
Grammy Award-winning musician Laurie Lewis is internationally renowned as a singer, songwriter, fiddler, bandleader, producer and educator. She was a founding member of the Good Ol’ Persons and the Grant Street String Band and has performed and recorded since 1986 with her musical partner, mandolinist Tom Rozum. Laurie has twice been voted IBMA's Female Vocalist of the Year and has won the respect and admiration of her peers.
Since her debut in 1986, Laurie has recorded nearly 20 albums in a number of musical formats. Her latest album with her band the Right Hands (Tom Rozum, Brandon Godman, Patrick Sauber, and Sam Grisman), The Hazel and Alice Sessions, was nominated for the Best Bluegrass Recording Grammy in 2017. "One of the contemporary acoustic music scenes most skilled and enduring performers." –Acoustic Guitar
Joining Laurie on stage for this show is guitarist and singer Nina Gerber. Carving out a career of what some might call the shadows, Nina is at last beginning to dare the light. Her first album as a leader, Not Before Noon, follows two decades which brought her to prominence without ever placing her name on the front of an album cover. Since her accompaniment of Kate Wolf first earned her recognition, her acute skills as performer, producer and arranger have continued to deepen. Her contributions to acoustic music have earned her a following as loyal as for the numerous high talents she has accompanied - proving the shadows equal to the spotlight in the creation of honest, powerful, and beautiful music.
Opening our show is a delightful duo from Lyons. Follow the Fox is what happens when Sarah Cole and Dylan McCarthy join creative forces to create honest acoustic music. Occasionally joined by a myriad of talented friends, Follow the Fox is centered around the captivating songwriting and passionate performances of these two artists based out of Lyons, Colorado. Anywhere from heart-breaking ballads to hard-hitting bluegrass tunes, their spell-binding harmonies and thoughtful arrangements give them a sound all their own. Come see them in person and follow the fox, wherever it may go...
We hope you can join us for this special night of music in Lyons!
