Wednesday, February 8.
Doors open 7:00, concert 7:30 pm.

Cleveland-born David Wilcox is a father, a husband, a citizen and a songwriter. First inspired to play guitar after hearing a fellow college student playing in a stairwell, Wilcox is now 18 records into a career marked by personal revelation and wildly loyal fans. His lyrical insight is matched by a smooth baritone voice, virtuosic guitar chops, and creative open tuning, giving him a range and tenderness rare in folk music. This is David’s second show in Gunnison and we are excited to have him back. Sponsored by The Gunnison Country Shopper, West Elk Windshields, the I-bar Ranch and Dragon Sheet Metal.

Tickets: $25/members & advanced, $30/at the door.

lizzy-and-jenny-fiddlingThe Jollification Project

Thursday, April 6.
Doors open 7:00, concert 7:30 pm.

While traveling through Appalachia in 2014, Jenny Hill and Lizzy Plotkin were introduced to the word “jollification” by a radio host in Johnson City, TN. He explained that the word dates back to the early 1800’s, in a time when fiddlers would “jollify” just about any occasion, strolling through villages from home to home, providing merriment for all! They will be joined by guest artists and showcase original and traditional sounds influenced by the vast history of fiddle music. This show will include Appalachian old-time, bluegrass, square-dance, Texas swing, Irish, and gypsy folk traditions, as well as harmony singing, and hollerin’.

Tickets: $15/adults, $12/members, snrs & kids (12-).

the-black-lillies-by-joseph-llanesGunnison Country Times Presents:
The Black Lillies

Wednesday, May 3.
Doors open 7:00, concert 7:30 pm.

The Black Lillies are a band for the ages: rich, rootsy tunes performed with as much heart as technical virtuosity. If you ask them, they’ll tell you they play “Tennessee music” – combining strains of wampy Memphis soul and blues with Nashville’s classic country and East Tennessee’s traditional Appalachian style – while Rolling Stone describes it as “country music with a soul-rock infusion, supported by bandleader Cruz Contreras’ smart songwriting and tight musicianship.” Either way, it’s music that stirs your soul, touches your heart and makes you want to dance.

Tickets: $20/advance, $25 at the door.
