Exclusive VIP Reception and Artist Meet and Greet at 6:30 (Limited Availability) $40 per person w/ David Wilcox and Stephanie Pauline before the concert (heavy Hors d'oeuvre served 6:30-7:15 prompt).
David Wilcox is a father, a husband, a citizen and a songwriter. He is also a traveler – an adventurer at his core, always on his way somewhere. So how appropriate is it that the career of David Wilcox, celebrated songwriter and creator of more than 18 albums, began with a bike ride through North Carolina when he was just a teenager? "As my friend and I bicycled the full length of the Blue Ridge Parkway we were asking people that we met, 'Where can we find musicians?' because we were traveling light and didn't have our instruments, and they told us about this a hippie school, Warren Wilson College," he says. He spent a week in Asheville, and decided to attend.
"There was this cute little music venue, like 150 people max, and that was the perfect size for me. I was playing there every Tuesday and really learned how to make it fresh, not to just play the same set, but how to respond to the crowd and be spontaneous." Throughout his long career, Wilcox has sought to find a way to stay always in the moment, to never let his art feel like a routine, to never be afraid to take a chance.

Joining David is Colorado Springs own Stephanie Pauline:
“Singer/songwriter Stephanie Pauline exists in that twilight zone between Nashville accessibility and indie credibility. Her album, When the Smoke Clears, is brightly lit with enough studio polish and straightforward arrangements to join Lady Antebellum on the country airwaves; however, there is a level of intimacy in her lyrics, a honest, confessional quality, that bring these narratives back to reality. There is a sense of healing that is felt through this album, and those listening to it will likely feel such catharsis as well. Pauline is based in Colorado, far from the bubblegum machinery of Nashville country music. She has taken the best elements of Americana’s commercial black sheep and gave it heart and soul.” – Stacy Zering, NO DEPRESSION
