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.

Saturday, July 8

It’s another Best of the Best, the eclectic, talented and completely charming alt-bluegrass group Still on the Hill. Their performance at the Old Settlers Inn shows off their blend of styles into a fresh and original style.

This week New Settlers' features one of the Old Settlers Inn’s first and favorite performers. Singer-songwriter Brooks Williams combines rock, blues and American roots music.

Saturday, June 24

Fun, poetic, gritty and wonderful. It's Greg Brown recorded at the Old Settlers Inn. Greg is the founder of Red House Records, has received a plethora of folkie-and-indie type awards and his tunes have been covered by Willie Nelson, Carlos Santana, Ani DiFranco, Shawn Colvin and countless others. Like most singer-songwriters, he's best when performing live in a small setting ­ like the Old Settlers Inn.

Wild, eclectic and multitalented… Vance Gilbert is a quintessential singer-songwriter and storyteller. We recorded him at the Old Settlers Inn.  

Saturday, May 20

Mad Agnes at the Old Settlers Inn. The trio is another of those talented groups that are impossible to pigeonhole. Folk, Celtic, classical, pop, rock - or somewhere in-between!

Nickel Creek at The Orpheum. The “newgrass” trio writes and performs wonderful, intricate, progressive tunes - so, so cool!

Saturday, May 6

This week it's Easily Amused – Canadian singer/songwriters with an alt-rock edge. They’ve been around for well over a decade and now go by Keith and Renee – this recording was made fairly early in their career.  They are fresh, friendly, hip and oh-so-talented.

Saturday, April 29

This week we'll hear Celtic music star Aiofe Clancy and her band at the Old Settlers Inn.
