With humor and grace, Wyoming musician Jason Tyler Burton writes songs about people, places, and the joys and sorrows of living in rural communities. His fourth album, Kentuckian was voted the #1 Wyoming album of 2019 by Wyoming Public Radio.
Shawn Hess from Laramie will bring his modern takes on country, folk and Americana to the stage.
The Two Tracks is an acoustic, Americana quartet from Sheridan. They specialize in an Earth-grown sound while providing different perspectives of life.
Ace audio engineer Adam Bender (Laramie) will once again mix all of the shows.
After careful consideration of pandemic safety orders for gatherings in the state, there will be limited venue capacities, mask requirements for venue staff, crew and musicians when not performing, and more precautions onstage and off. Concertgoers will also be encouraged to wear masks, and gather responsibly with awareness for social distancing and safety measures in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.
According to founder,coordinator and performer for the WYOmerica Caravan Tour, Aaron Davis, the future of live music and local venues depend on it.
