Gunnison Country Times Presents:
The Black Lillies
Wednesday, December 5. Doors 7:30, Concert 8:00 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. Presented by the Gunnison Country Times. Concert held in the GAC Black Box Theatre.

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

Whitewater Ramble
Saturday, August 25. Doors 7:30, concert 8:00 pm.
Described as “High-Octane Rocky Mountain Dance Grass”, Whitewater Ramble uses a simple recipe to craft its sound: start with bluegrass instrumentation, add drums, and finish with a boundary-less approach to grassing-up everything from disco house grooves to roots to Americana. The Colorado-bred quintet combines the elements of mandolin, fiddle, acoustic guitar, upright bass, drums and vocals to explore the musical boundaries of multiple genres and to fuel their own mixture of original music and innovative cover song interpretations. Whitewater Ramble delivers a powerful and memorable live performance.
Tickets: $18/adults, $15/seniors (60+) & GAC members.

We Dream Dawn
Friday, September 21. Doors 7:30, Concert 8:00pm.
In 2015, We Dream Dawn quickly grew from a distant dream into a new life when Sage Cook decided to take leave from Elephant Revival, a neo-folk quintet he had helped found in 2006. Fueled by lofty ideals about approaching art while living closer to the land, this new project is honing in on a new sort of American dream. Somewhere between vintage, analog, psychedelic, and dreamy electro folk pop these folks are representing rural America in a whole new light.
Tickets: $18/general admission, $15/members, students w/ ID.
