Valhalla Tahoe celebrating 40th anniversary with free concert featuring The Wild Feathers
If you go ...
What: Valhalla Tahoe’s 40th anniversary concert featuring The Wild Feathers
When: 6-9 p.m., Thursday, Aug. 22
Where: Valhalla Grand Lawn (1 Valhalla Road, South Lake Tahoe, Calif.)
The Valhalla Art, Music & Theatre Festival is celebrating its 40th year with a free concert this Thursday — and it grabbed a well known name from the country festival circuit to mark the occasion.
The Wild Feathers, a country rock band out of Nashville, bring its Neon Frontier tour to Tahoe for the free show. The tour takes its name from the band’s newest album, “Greetings From the Neon Frontier.”
The 10-track album — a must-listen for country fans who prefer more explorative country rather than the commercialized radio kind — was released in 2018.
The group, according to its Facebook bio, consists of Taylor Burns, guitar/vocals; Ricky Young, guitar/vocals; Joel King, bass/vocals; and Ben Dumas on drums.
They fancy themselves as road warriors, having toured extensively around the country. This year has already brought a busy spring tour with additional stops at country festivals stretching from Texas to Canada.
The Wild Feathers will perform at Valhalla’s Grand Lawn on Thursday, Aug. 22. And did we mention it’s FREE? Can’t beat that deal.
Dogs will not be allowed on the Grand Lawn during the event, which runs from 6-9 p.m. Valhalla notes that county leash laws apply to all other areas of the Tallac Historic Site. Dogs are also not allowed on the neighboring Camp Richardson beach/property.
Outside food or drink is not allowed on the Grand Lawn. There will be cash-only bars on the Grand Lawn serving beer and wine.
Given the popularity of the band and limited parking, Valhalla recommends making plans to car pool or bike to the event.
