Strings Music Festival

As summer wraps up, Strings Music Festival has announced its concert lineup for the upcoming winter season.

What started as a summer-only music festival has gained enough popularity to evolve into a year-round celebration of every musical genre. Featuring performers from bluegrass roots to those with an Americana flare, the winter lineup is stacked with talent.

The season will even feature a theater production of “The Odyssey” reimagined through a story of four women stuck in a refugee camp. While Strings Music Festival’s commitment to promoting music with the highest standard remains a priority, guests can expect new and up-in-coming artists that put a twist on the traditions of musicianship. With an ability to combine new with favored heritages, the hallmark of Strings has been the ability to attract a diverse audience demographic. 

The winter lineup will open on Friday, Dec. 15, with Son Little, followed by “The Queen’s Cartoonists Holiday Hurrah: Yule Love It!” on Tuesday, Dec. 19. Performances from Dec. 30 through the end of January will feature The Sweet Lilies, Keller Williams, The Lone Bellow and Leftover Salmon. The months of February and March will welcome well-known artists such as Storm Large, moe., Lúnasa and more. 

All 12 shows will start at 7 p.m. Tickets will go online at 10 a.m. Friday, Sept. 29 at or by calling the box office at (970) 879-5056 ext. 105. Tickets prices will range between $20 to $55. Donor ticket sales will be available for presale purchases Sept. 21.

As a nonprofit organization, more than 60% of youth, family, senior and adult tickets will be free. For a more in-depth performance lineup and further details, please visit
