Sundays at Six presents Dana Louise & The Glorious Birds — August 28

The Alamosa Live Music Association presents Dana Louise & The Glorious Birds on August 28th at 6 p.m. in Cole Park, Alamosa. Bring the whole family and help us dance into in the fall as we conclude our Sundays at Six series!

During a solo journey to the Azores Islands in 2011, Dana Louise, a visual artist, taught herself to play guitar. The daughter of Ezra Idlet of the Grammy-nominated Trout Fishing in America, Dana forged the beginnings of her sound, practicing amidst the archipelago’s lava rocks and dragon trees. Back in the States, she began singing and songwriting professionally, touring regionally and internationally, and is currently recording her debut album with Trout Records.

Joined by The Glorious Birds — Adams Collins (vibraphone and 5-string banjo), and Ezra Idlet and Keith Grimwood (Trout Fishing in America/guitar, percussion and bass) — Dana brings her vibrant, melodic vocals and finger picking to a body of complex songs. Drawing from jazz and bluegrass, carrying a contemporary beat, the sound is roots-rooted flung-into-the-future folk. Dana Louise and The Glorious Birds work to leave their audiences glowing with the magic music can bring: genuine human connection.

Sundays at Six is a free outdoor concert series in Cole Park, Alamosa. Concerts start at 6 p.m. Check out this year’s lineup. In case of bad weather, go to ALMA’s website and Facebook page to find out about cancellations or change of venue.
