SouthWest Colorado Concerts presents

“Sounds of the Cortez Farmer’s Market”


Experience a mid-winter taste of summer! Last Nickel, Ranger Rick and the Swamp Things, The Lindells, and Donny Johnson will be sampling some Farmer’s Market favorites at the Montezuma-Cortez High School Auditorium in Cortez on Saturday, January 26, 2019. The concert will begin at 2:00 p.m. Last Nickel


Last Nickel performs “traditional newgrass,” hand crafted in Dolores. With the drive of bluegrass, the soul of gospel and the lyrical heart of folk, Last Nickel sits the traditional and the contemporary down at the table to arm wrestle. The group brings together diverse musical backgrounds, blending traditional musical themes with original twists. Their music paints pictures of the timeless relating of people and places, and the mess and majesty therein. You are just as likely to find the band performing on a local stage as you are to find them searching out inspiration on a river or mountain near you.


Ranger Rick & the Swamp Things is a local group of four musicians using a variety of acoustic instruments to excite the musical passion of anyone who has ever "tapped a toe!" You will surely have a favorite as they cover songs from the movies, the road, the Old West, the islands and the swamps of Louisiana. You may even want to sing along and be ready to start a Conga Line!


LindellsAs husband-wife performing songwriters, Chris and Kim Lindell entwine their earthy yet ethereal lead vocals and harmonies over superb guitarwork and playful backbeat rhythms. The guitar-bass interplay sweetly highlights their intuitive musicianship and long-creative partnership. They taught themselves to write songs on front porches, in kitchens, on ribbon-of-highway road trips, around campfires with friends and walking long miles of trail Donny Johnsonin old growth forests, high mountain meadows and stony ridges. They write the kind of songs that bring forth visions of a vast landscape and the lives sustained within it.


Donny Johnson, a singing troubadour, is a longtime favorite in the Four Corners area. This country singer promises music inspired by stars such as Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, George Jones and Merle Haggard.


This concert is free for SouthWest Colorado Concerts season ticket holders. For all others, $10 at the door. 2018-2019 Season Tickets, which include the four remaining concerts, will also be available for $55/Adult, $10/Youth.
