25 years after starting his full fledged music career with The Samples, Sean Kelly continues to delight fans with music that transcends genres, age and shatters the rules of the established music industry. Throughout his career, Sean has been the driving influence of 20 albums and over 1 million records sold.
Sean started playing guitar at age 16 listening to Neil Young, Rolling Stones and Jackson Browne. Those influences mixed with his own poignant and timeless lyrics, a unique and striking voice and a mind for melodies led to songs like Little Silver Ring, Feel Us Shaking and Wild River. For many fans, these aren’t new songs or old songs, but anthems to their lives that represent the first time they met their wife or the joys of their times at college. Read More
Shaley Scott was born and raised in Fort Collins, Colorado. A trained dancer and a self-taught musician–she’s been performing since the age of 5. She entered the Colorado Academy of the Arts, where she would train every day after school. “I had originally wanted to be a dancer, or be on Broadway,” Shaley says. “I use to teach tap and jazz, and loved it.” But, Shaley started writing songs on the piano in her spare time, and landed a spot on a local cable channel, where they started featuring her original music on tv–at only age 14. From then on, her songwriting became a priority in her life. Read More
This summer marks the 4th season of Fort Collins Nursery’s Rock Garden Concert Series. For four epic nights, Fort Collins Nursery will transform from a retail space to a stunning and unique concert venue appropriately dubbed “The Rock Garden.” 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.
For each concert, we partner with a wonderful local non-profit organization. A portion of ticket sales plus all bar proceeds and live auction proceeds will benefit the organization. In addition to great music, each concert will feature a beer and wine tent, food trucks, and dog adoption event. Click here to see photos from past shows
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. A portion of the night’s ticket sales and all donations from wine and beer sales go directly to The Vegetable Connection.
