Songwriters in the Round at Fort Collins Nursery

After a long COVID-19 induced hiatus, Fort Collins Nursery’s Rock Garden Concert Series returns for one late-summer night on Friday, September 17th. An all-star lineup consisting of Liz Barnez, Megan Burtt, Alysia Kraft & Bonnie Sims will share the stage for an epic evening of powerful music! Each highly accomplished artist and songwriter has achieved tremendous success at a regional and national level.  This “in the round” format spotlights the distinctive talents and songwriting skills of each artist as they take turns featuring their own songs. Additional harmonies, percussion, and spontaneous leads from the rest of the group will give each song an improvisational dynamic and make for a truly one-of-a-kind performance! 

The intimacy of this concert experience is heightened by down-home storytelling and the serenity of Fort Collins Nursery’s unique outdoor concert space. Audience members can relax under the evening sky, nestled along the banks of Dry Creek and the Cache la Poudre River, surrounded by beautiful plants, trees and wildlife. 

The concert is a fundraising event benefiting The Vegetable Connection and funds raised will support their mission to create a healthier community through food education, increasing access to nutritional food, and supporting local farmers. 100% of the event profit from ticket sales and all donations from the auction and wine and beer sales go directly to The Vegetable Connection.

In addition to great music, this concert will feature a beer and wine tent and food truck. Audience members are encouraged to bring lawn chairs for additional seating and well-behaved pets on leashes are welcome!
