July 18 — Wild Road Band
The Longmont Museum welcomes back the Wild Road Band. A hard driving seven-piece classic country band hailing from Loveland, featuring honky tonk piano, steel guitar, cranking fiddle, and twanging telecaster alongside some truly great harmonies.
July 25 — Blake Brown & The American Dust Choir
Hailing from Denver, the American Dust Choir is characterized by Blake Brown’s seemingly simple, but nuanced, melodies and heartfelt lyrics. The band has performed at SXSW and opened for Keith Urban at the legendary Stubb’s Waller Creek Amphitheater. “There’s a profound sense of pride in their southern-tinged brand of Americana that is innately charming.” — Substream Magazine. Special Thanks to Homevibe Presents.
