Music Scene: Stray Grass at the Music in the Grapevines Summer Concert Series and other shows set fo
The name has changed but the music continues with the Music in the Grapevines Summer Concert Series at Two Rivers Winery.
The first concert in the series (formerly Jazz Among the Grapevines) will be at 7 p.m. Tuesday, May 16, at the winery, 2087 Broadway. Local favorites Stray Grass — Garry Tullio, Ted Shook, Byron Walcher, Tom Spehar and Alycia Vince — will perform acoustic bluegrass, Americana and rock ‘n’ roll.
Stray Grass “specializes in a high-energy interpretation of acoustic music,” according to the band’s Facebook page. “Although played on traditional instruments (most of the time), the musical stylings of Stray Grass are anything but traditional.”
Music in the Grapevine concerts take place outdoors at the winery with the Colorado National Monument as a natural, red rock backdrop. Take a picnic and a lawn chair. Wine is available to purchase by the glass or bottle. No other adult beverages are permitted.
The series is hosted by The Art Center Guild. Tickets cost $15 and proceeds benefit Western Colorado Center for the Arts (The Art Center). Tickets can be purchased at The Art Center, 1803 N. Seventh St., or at Two Rivers Winery.
Here are the other dates and bands scheduled for this concert series:
(Gates open at 6 p.m., and the concerts begin at 7 p.m.)
■ June 20: North Folk Flyers with American songbook jazz standards, reggae, ballads.
■ July 18: John Bayley with sweet island reggae, calypso, folk.
■ Aug. 15: Bryan Savage with smooth jazz, saxophone and flute.
