WYOmericana Caravan Tour Rambles In May
While it’s always been known that Wyoming has some great musicians – well, at least in Wyoming, anyway – Three bands have taken it upon themselves to spread that knowledge through the Rocky Mountain region.
Beginning in Laramie, wrapping up in Cody, and filling the gaps with stops in Montana, Idaho, and Utah, this 2nd annual summer-long tour gives everybody a chance to see what we’re made of. Check out the press release below, then plan on supporting these great local acts when they hit your town. For complete info on the tour and bans, visit their website here.
A dozen musicians. Three bands representing one state. Eighteen shows through five states. Meet the 2nd Annual WYOmericana Caravan Tour featuring Screen Door Porch, The Patti Fiasco and J Shogren Shanghai’d.
A traveling concert circus of sorts, the WYOmericana Caravan is a rolling representation of the square state’s burgeoning songwriter scene. Artists will rotate performance slots each night, making the headliner/opener scenario unique to each tour stop. Three sets of WYOmericana music each night along with a heap of ad-libbed collaborations between bands…this is one music tour you won’t soon forget.
The debut 2013 Caravan was such a home run it caught the attention of The New York Times, which sent a writer and photographer to cover the tour for a full-page, Sunday feature. Wyoming’s own Square State Film Co. also put a crew of videographers together, traveling the lengthy 3000 miles to craft the forthcoming documentary film, WYOMERICANA (to be released April 1). The snowball of outreach and support led to Wyoming’s largest newspaper, Casper Star-Tribune, naming the WYOmericana Caravan Tour a Top A&E Event in Wyoming.
The 2014 Caravan is riding this wave of momentum to a town near you. Hop on board!
