A Sesquicentennial Celebration Concert

The Royal Gorge Bridge & Park and the City of Cañon City proudly present a sesquicentennial celebration concert at the Elk Park Amphitheater at the Royal Gorge Bridge & Park on Friday, September 16th at 6:30 p.m.

Join us under a canopy of stars for the ultimate bluegrass experience as we welcome Grammy Award winning artist Béla Fleck.

Over the last four decades, Béla Fleck has made a point of boldly going where no banjo player has gone before, a musical journey that has earned him 15 Grammys in nine different fields, including Country, Pop, Jazz, Instrumental, Classical and World Music.

But his roots are in bluegrass, and that’s where he returns with his first bluegrass tour in 24 years, My Bluegrass Heart. My Bluegrass Heart is the third chapter of a trilogy which began with the 1988 album, Drive, and continued in 1991 with The Bluegrass Sessions.

Concert guests should arrive early to enjoy the opening performance by multi-Grammy nominated Frank Solivan and Dirty Kitchen. Known for their meaty pile-driving rhythms and Frank’s dynamic and bold vocals, the band’s last two albums have both received a Grammy nomination for Best Bluegrass Album. They have twice been named IBMA Instrumental Group of the Year and earned numerous other IBMA noms including Male Vocalist of the Year, Mandolin Player of the Year, and in 2013, received Banjo Player of the Year.

Elk Park Amphitheater, located on the South side of the Royal Gorge Bridge & Park, is a sloped concert area with grass seating. Guests are encouraged to bring their own blankets and/or low-back lawn chairs. Seating is on a first come-first serve basis. Concert ticket includes all day admission to the park, so come early and enjoy the attractions! Elk Park Amphitheater gates open at 5:30 pm.
