The WYOmericana Caravan is touring the state this September and October, making six stops around Wyoming. The musicians take the stage for the first time on Fri., Sept. 11, at the WYO Theater in Sherdian. The full schedule is below.
In collaboration with the Wyoming Arts Council, the 6th anniversary tour features Aaron Davis & the Mystery Machine (Hoback), Jason Tyler Burton (Pinedale), and Shawn Hess (Laramie). The Sheridan show will also welcome guests The Two Tracks (Sheridan).
In light of the pandemic, efforts have been made to keep this tour as safe as possible. There will be limited venue capacities, mask requirements for venue staff, crew and musicians when not performing, and more precautions onstage and off. Concertgoers are encouraged to wear masks, and gather responsibly with awareness for social distancing and safety measures in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. Live music and local venues depend on it.
The WYOmericana Caravan is all about representing Wyoming and celebrating the creative spark in our state. Fans and sponsors have continued to rally behind this musical collective with positivity and support. This is a grassroots operation and it takes a generous village. 2020 sponsors include WESTAF, Wyoming Arts Council through the Wyoming Independent Music Initiative, Western AF, Wyoming Public Media, Give’r, Buckrail, Snake River Brewing, BendeRuble Sound, Showdeer, Pinedale Fine Arts Council, Little America Hotel Cheyenne, and Luminous Brewhouse.

More about the 2020 WYOmericana Caravan Tour
Described as “a traveling concert circus of sorts” by The New York Times, the award-winning
WYOmericana Caravan Tour is a rolling representation of Wyoming’s burgeoning songwriter scene with multiple musical acts “caravanning” down the road together. The idea is to propel Wyoming’s music scene as an artist collective, exhibiting to the world that there’s a creative movement in the USA’s least populated state. Musical acts perform individual sets—with the suspense of ad-libbed, cross-band collaborations—followed by an encore set that includes members of the tour on stage simultaneously, taking chances and blending talents. Past tours have featured Jalan Crossland, Screen Door Porch, The Patti Fiasco, J Shogren Shanghai’d, Canyon Kids, Sneaky Pete & the Secret Weapons, The Littlest Birds, Low Water String Band, and Dauphin.
