Sturtz with Travis McNamara at The Velvet Elk Lounge

May 18 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm MDT

Sturtz’s music stands out for its distinctive, soothing instrumental and vocal harmonies. NPR’s All Songs Considered described the band as “a reassuring breath of fresh air that pulls me back to simpler times.” The acoustic quartet – Andrew Sturtz [vocals, guitar], Courtlyn Carpenter [cello, harmonies], Will Kuepper [bass, harmonies], and Jim Herlihy [banjo, harmonies] – is serene and folksy, with melodic vocals soaring over the lower string instrumentals. Sturtz released their debut album, You’ve Done This Before in August 2021, and now they are hard at work recording a second album that is set to release in Summer 2024. When they’re not playing music, you’ll probably find them milling flour, farming, laying in a creek, or eating native foliage.

Bar opens at 5 PM and happy hour from open to 7 PM. (21+) The Velvet Elk Lounge does not allow minors – No Exceptions.
