In partnership with the Wyoming Arts Council, the seventh annual WYOmericana Caravan Tour will make a seven-show jaunt through the region featuring Wyoming musicians Sarah Sample (Sheridan; trio), Aaron Davis (Hoback; duo), and Abby Webster (Wilson; solo).
Artists will perform individual sets with the addition of ad-libbed cross-band collaborations, and a closing set that includes all members of the tour on stage simultaneously, taking chances and blending talents—adding a camaraderie element absent from most modern day traveling shows.
In an effort to make a deeper connection with both rural and urban communities on the 2021 tour, an all-ages songwriting master class, “Songcraft & Sense of Place: A WYOmericana Perspective,” will be offered for free in select markets and taught by the artists.
The WYOmericana philosophy is to propel Wyoming’s original music scene as an artist collective, exhibiting to the world that there’s a stellar creative spark in the country’s least populated state. The talent pool of Wyoming songwriters is booming and it’s rising up from every corner of the state.
There will be limited venue capacities, mask requirements for venue staff, crew, and musicians when not performing, among other 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 ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Live music and local venues depend on it.
This year’s grassroots tour is made possible through the generous support of WESTAF, Wyoming Arts Council, Wyoming Public Media, Give’r, Buckrail, BendeRuble Sound (the tour’s traveling sound engineer), and Showdeeer (poster artist.)
Real time updates will be available via the WYOmericana Facebook and Instagram pages and WYOmericana.com.
