PUNCH BROTHERS with Special Guests
Monday, June 12. 7:30 PM.
Tickets: $40.00 – $55.50 ($37.00 – $52.50 Concert Member)
Described by the New York Times as “American country-classical chamber music,” the Punch Brothers (Chris Thile (mandolin), Gabe Witcher (fiddle/violin), Noam Pikelny (banjo), Chris Eldridge (guitar), and Paul Kowert (bass)) take the Chautauqua stage to showcase their T Bone Burnett-produced album, “The Phosphorescent Blues.”

DRIVE-BY TRUCKERS with Special Guests
Friday, June 16 & Saturday, June 17. 7:30 PM
Tickets: $35.00 – $50.00 ($32.00 – $47.00 Concert Member)
The Drive-By Truckers have always been outspoken, telling a distinctly American story via craft, character and concept, all backed by sonic ambition and social conscience. Founded by singer/songwriter/guitarists Mike Cooley and Patterson Hood, their latest release, “American Band,” is a powerful and legitimately provocative work, hard edged and finely honed. Hood and Cooley are joined by bassist Matt Patton, keyboardist/multi-instrumentalist Jay Gonzalez, and drummer Brad Morgan.

LUCINDA WILLIAMS with Special Guests
Monday, July 31. 7:30 PM
Tickets: $33.00 – $48.00 ($30.00 – $45.00 Concert Member)
We’ve all heard about the iconic vibe of Route 66 and the ocean air of the Pacific Coast Highway. But there are untold stories emanating from countless highways across the land that cut deep into the spirit of those who traverse them. Lucinda Williams is one of those people, and with The Ghosts of Highway 20,” she brings those stories to life and gives a vivid look at how the highway has been a backdrop throughout her life.

COLIN HAY with Trace Bundy
Thursday, August 10. 7:00 PM
Tickets: $33.00 – $48.00 ($30.00 – $45.00 Concert Member)
Singer-songwriter Colin Hay is most beloved for his intimate, confessional live shows but most widely known for being an influential and celebrated frontman. His inclusion as a playlist favorite from the likes of Metallica to The Lumineers reflects his continuing relevance and broad appeal. Now with both ’80s fame and indie credibility, it’s possible that Hay has delivered the defining album of his solo career, “Fierce Mercy.”
Trace Bundy, dubbed the “Acoustic Ninja,” will open tonight’s show

INDIGO GIRLS with Special Guests
Sunday, September 3. 7:30 PM
Tickets: $38.00 – $63.00 ($35.00 – $60.00 Concert Member)*
Summer at Chautauqua wouldn’t be complete without the perennial crowd favorite Indigo Girls. Decades into their career, the Grammy-winning folk-rock duo still amazes conventional pundits with their ability to grow and thrive no matter the direction of the music industry. The Indigo Girls have spent 35 years performing together, produced 15 albums (seven gold, four platinum, and one double platinum), and have toured the world over. It is rare to find musicians together so long, rarer still with such profound successes.

STEEP CANYON RANGERS with Special Guests
Thursday, September 21. 7:30 PM
Tickets: $23.00 – $38.00 ($20.00 – $35.00 Concert Member)
Grammy award-winning Steep Canyon Rangers unveil their highly anticipated ninth studio album, “Radio,” a project that further illustrates the band’s dynamic songwriting, instrumental virtuosity and high-energy performance. Members Woody Platt (guitar), Graham Sharp (banjo), Charles R. Humphrey III (bass), Mike Guggino (mandolin), Nicky Sanders (fiddle) and Mike Ashworth (box kit) are also known for collaborations with actor/comedian and respected banjo player Steve Martin and esteemed singer-songwriter Edie Brickell.
