STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — Strings Music Festival has unveiled a sneak peek of what’s to come for this summer’s concert line-up.

“After each season, we look back and wonder how we’re going to top what we’ve done,” said Kristine Kilbourne, Strings marketing director. “With the events, lineup and musicians we have prepared for 2019, I think we’ve got it figured out. The 2019 festival is set to be our best yet.”

On Monday, it was announced that Band of Horses will perform at Strings on July 19, and it’s expected to be one of the more popular shows of the season.

A mainstay of indie rock for a decade, the South Carolina-based band has produced a number of well-known singles including “The Funeral,” “No One’s Gonna Love You,” 2010’s Grammy-nominated “Infinite Arms” and “Mirage Rock,” produced by the legendary Glyn Johns.

Band of Horses has played globe-spanning headline tours as well as dates with greats like Pearl Jam and Neil Young.

Strings will also be welcoming back Celebrate America, Vol. III on June 29.

This annual concert features a brass and percussion ensemble that performs John Philip Sousa marches, John Williams’ iconic film and Olympics music, the “1812 Overture” and many more American classics to celebrate the Fourth of July holiday in Steamboat Springs.

“We’re looking forward to another incredible, music-filled summer,” Kilbourne said.

The remaining 2019 summer lineup will be announced in mid-March. Tickets for the complete summer season go on sale to donors of $500 or more at 10 a.m. Tuesday, April 23. Tickets for the complete summer season go on sale to the general public at 10 a.m. Tuesday, May 7.
