Zoe Lewis and her Rubber Band performing at the Old Settlers Inn.

Paul Thorn this week at the Old Settlers Inn. Blues, roots-rock with that hard-to-find element that says “southern.” Paul is gritty and graceful and a consummate storyteller.

Kelley Hunt and her band at the Old Settlers Inn. Blues, boogie woogie piano and a sold-out crowd.

Saturday, July 29

Listen for music from the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band's performance at the Cotillion in Wichita. The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band have been performing their brand of country-rock since the 60s with a brief bit of fame in the 80s. Their best-known tunes are probably "Mr. Bojangles" and "American Dream.”

We'll hear a compilation of performances from the Sedgwick County Zoo Summer Concert Series.  This show includes bayou-blues queen Marcia Ball, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, A Roomful of Blues and more. Great shows, great crowds. 

Saturday, July 15

We get to hear one of the Best of the Best – a concert that was a particular audience favorite. It’s Chuck Pyle, the “Zen Cowboy of Colorado” performing at the Old Settlers Inn. Chuck is a consummate storyteller and contemporary folk artist. At times, you could hear the proverbial pin drop, at others, the crowd was laughing or cheering. Too much fun to miss – this Saturday on New Settlers.
