The Wirebirds with Kris Lane
Saturday June 3 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$12.00
Join The Wirebirds in an encore performance of their string-heavy ballads of love and loss with special guest Kris Lane.
The Wire Birds are an 8-piece chamber-folk group based in Gainesville, Florida. The string section provides soothing support to the powerful folk stories. The group is composed of Dan Stepp on vocals, guitar, and piano, Emma Lou on vocal harmonies, Gabi Shapiro on bass, Jon Alexander on pedal steel, Dan Hardwick on cello, Aaron Colverson on violin, Elisabeth Schrieber on violin, and Jay Coleman on viola. The Wirebirds are fresh off their debut appearance at the 71st Annual Florida Folk Festival.
Drawing on his roots and upbringing in deep West Texas, Kris Lane paints pictures with his honest story telling. Kris was a finalist in The Texas Heritage Songwriter’s Competition in 2012 and was featured at The 2014 Kerrville Folk Festival, the longest continuously-running folk festival in America. Born in the heart of oil country in Monahans, Texas, Kris spent his formative years in the unforgiving mesquito-speckled landscape of West Texas. After leaving his longtime home of Wink, TX, he moved north to Lubbock and soon became familiarized with the Blue Light Live, a mainstay for live music in the hub city and a venue known for cultivating songwriters. It was here that he began crafting his own songs, and did so to a receptive audience.
