The same team that brought you “ Belfast to Bluegrass ” and “ Shipwrecks and Shanties ” has turned their eyes and ears to the songs of peace and empowerment over the last 150 years . This new performance will gather the songs of hope from across the ages and around the world and will feature some of the most inspirational and powerful songs that sprang forth from the resilient spirits of songwriters , poets and storytellers . While the show bumps up against the reality of war , it is an uplifting show spotlighting the collective triumph of the people , and the songs that inspired them in their quests for justice and ultimately peace .

Reserved Seating : $ 40 ∆Dance Alert Opening set : The Secret Sisters Looking back over the past 25 years of rootsy , string-based music , the impact of Leftover Salmon is impossible to deny . Formed in Boulder at the end of 1989 , the Colorado slamgrass pioneers took their form of aggressive bluegrass to rock and roll bars at a time when it wasn ’ t so common , helping Salmon become a pillar of the jam band scene and unwitting architects of the jamgrass genre . Today , Leftover Salmon is : Vince Herman , Drew Emmitt , Andy Thorn , Greg Garrison , Alwyn Robinson and Erik Deutsch .
The Secret Sisters , an Americana singing and songwriting duo consisting of vocalists Laura and Lydia Rogers , are awaiting the June release of their latest CD , You Don ’ t Own Me Anymore , produced by Brandi Carlile .
