HONEYHONEY (Rock Garden Concert Series)

HONEYHONEY

with Dead Horses

  • Date: Saturday, August 4
  • Doors: 5:30pm
  • Show: 6:00pm
  • Tickets: $15 ADV/ $18 Door

Artist Details:

HONEYHONEY

The third full-length effort from L.A.-based duo HONEYHONEY3 is an album born from fascination with the sweet and the sleazy, light and dark, danger and magic. Working with Dave Cobb (the producer behind Jason Isbell’s Southeastern and Sturgill Simpson’s Metamodern Sounds in Country Music), lead singer/banjo player/violinist Suzanne Santo and vocalist/guitarist Ben Jaffe twist their gritty, harmony-driven brand of Southern-flavored rock & roll through tales of lost souls, broken boys, girls with gold in their spit. Equal parts inward-looking and endlessly curious, the two songwriters also take a mirror to their own experience in lust and heartache and never shy away from revealing the messy truth. And whether they rattle or soothe or joyfully inspire, HONEYHONEY instill each song with a straight-from-the-gut honesty and elegance of storytelling that make both cathartic and electrifying.  Read More

Dead Horses

At fifteen, Dead Horses frontwoman Sarah Vos’ world turned upside down. Raised in a strict, fundamentalist home, Vos lost everything when she and her family were expelled from the rural Wisconsin church where her father had long served as pastor. What happened next is the story of Dead Horses’ stunning new album, ‘My Mother the Moon,” a record full of trauma and triumph, despair and hope, pain and resilience.

Blending elements of traditional roots with contemporary indie folk, the album is both familiar and unexpected, unflinchingly honest in its portrayal of modern American life, yet optimistic in its unshakable faith in brighter days to come.  Read More

Venue Details:

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.

Sean Kelly of The Samples (Rock Garden Concert Series)

Sean Kelly of the Samples

with Shaley Scott

  • Date: Thursday, July 12

  • Tickets: $15 ADV/ $18 Door

Artist Details:

Sean Kelly

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

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
