Lukas Nelson & P.O.T.R. with special guest Nicki Bluhm

Tickets go on sale at 10 AM on July 2nd in the gift shop or on-line at www.sierranevada.com
Lukas and his band return to Chico and this time, they’re playing the Big Room. Lukas Nelson and his band P.O.T.R. (Promise of the Real) are an American rock n roll band based out of California. Lukas first picked up the guitar at age 11 to honor a promise he made to his father (Willie Nelson) and was able to teach himself the craft by playing along to classic Stevie Ray Vaughn and Jimi Hendrix songs. The band has released 5 records but it’s their live stage shows that’s causing them to sell out night after night. And if that wasn’t enough, Chico favorite Nicki Bluhm will be opening the show.

Amy Helm began connecting with audiences early in life, playing her first gig in her early teens in a Manhattan bar and drifting informally through a series of combos before her father (Levon Helm) recruited her to join his live band. She also absorbed musical and personal inspiration from her mother, noted singer/songwriter Libby Titus; and her stepfather, Steely Dan co-mastermind Donald Fagen, who offered Amy additional opportunities to find herself as a performer.

Come see Amy and her band as she makes her first Big Room performance!

Join us for a evening of world class acoustic blues with Eric Bibb, one of the Big Room’s favorite artists. Joining Eric will be multi-instrumentalist Michael Jerome Brown.

A career spanning five decades, 36 albums, countless radio & television shows and non-stop touring has made Eric Bibb one of the leading bluesmen of his generation. A Progressive preservationist, a fiery singer with true soul, gospel and folk roots, enjoyable and accessible, his blues are honest and powerful. One critic wrote: “He has all the ingredients for stardom – handsome good looks, a voice as strong and soulful as they come, the guitar chops to hold his own against the best and he writes compelling, sensitive songs. His blues are clean, beautifully sung, soulful and upbeat”. The weekly syndicated American program “House of Blues Radio Hour” host Elwood Blues (a.k.a. Dan Aykroyd) once declared to Eric: “You are what the blues in the new century should be about.”

Since her first appearance in the Big Room as a teenager, Sarah has become one of the most sought after acoustic artists performing today.

The change in approach garnered Jarosz two Grammy Awards in 2017—Best Folk Album for Undercurrent and Best American Roots Performance for “House Of Mercy.” Undercurrent also picked up the award for 2017 Album of the Year from Folk Alliance International.

Jarosz ended 2016 and began 2017 building on her previous successes in the UK and Ireland, including sold out shows at Union Chapel in London and City Halls in Glasgow. She also continues to make frequent appearances on the new Chris Thile-hosted A Prairie Home Companion. Sarah will tour throughout 2017 supporting Undercurrent, with musicians Jeff Picker on bass and Anthony da Costa on guitars and vocals.
