Friday Nights on the Lawn » Shannon Wurst

Grab your family and your face coverings and join us for a night out on the North Lawn! Every Friday evening, Crystal Bridges offers a free, family-friendly concert or performance and an art activity. Bring your own blanket, or use one of our lawn chairs, and enjoy an evening outdoors with live entertainment! Please reserve tickets for each household member planning to attend.

For Your Safety: Face coverings must be worn at all times. In order to maintain physical distancing, circles will be drawn on the lawn for each household group. Guests may remove their face covering to eat or drink only while inside their circle.

Shannon Wurst commands a stage. Born in the Ozark hills, this singer-songwriter can sing out a soulful, old-time ballad just as well as she wails on a rockabilly anthem in full-throated force and strum. Blending classic country with traditional bluegrass, Wurst’s musical arrangements effortlessly push her style into new territory. The timeless, roots-based songs from her latest album Sugar and Kerosene (released in Spring 2018) have a yearning tension that she delivers with a sweet smile.

Free, registration required. Register online here or by calling Guest Services at 479.657.2335.

Presented on the Coca-Cola Stage.
