Saturdays in the Square – Sweet Lillies Band, Christian Wallowing Bull, & Prairie Wildfire
Sweet Lillies Band: The Sweet Lillies are built upon their collaborative ideals and are always ready to share a stage or develop a project with any musicians who share the same no-holds-barred creative approach. This has made each one of their inventive, energetic live shows a wholly unique event, as setlists are changed on the fly, songs are given new life and shape, and guests are always welcome to join in the creative explosion.
Those on-stage partnerships create a space for incorporating instruments, arrangements, and styles that aren’t necessarily typical of the genre, but that help create a rich, compelling sound that defies easy categorization. Over the years they have been joined onstage by a number of legendary performers including, Sam Bush, George Porter Jr., Peter Rowan, Sally Van Meter, Andy Hall from the Infamous Stringdusters, Kyle Hollingsworth and Jason Hahn from the String Cheese Incident, Jennifer Hartswick, and Natalie Cressman from the Trey Anastasio Band, among many others.
Christian Wallowing Bull: Winner of the 2021 Wyoming Singer-Songwriter’s competition in Ten Sleep, Wyoming.Indigenous singer-songwriter, Christian Wallowing Bull resides in Wyoming, just outside the Wind River Reservation.
With familial relations to the Wind River, as an enrolled member of the Northern Arapaho Tribe, his heart as a storyteller is to represent his own indigenous roots, and to bridge perspective and healing to the lives of those indigenous, as well as non-indigenous.
He is a powerful voice in today’s industry. Ever since the humble beginnings of his first album release, “Warrior” in (2020), he has been leaving his growing audience and following in complete awe. With a voice like thunder, he carries an ancestral power in all of his writings.
Prairie Wildfire: Prairie Wildfire is a trio of talented musicians hailing from Buffalo. Their music is a fusion of folk, bluegrass, classic country, and Wyoming-style western, featuring Sage on mandolin, Tessa on banjo and Morgan on upright bass. The band is known for their tight harmonies, sophisticated instrumentation, and explosive energy on stage. With Sage’s rich ballads and occasional yodels, Tessa’s gritty voice and love for old-time cowboy music, and Morgan’s crystal clear tone influenced by jazz and bluegrass, Prairie Wildfire delivers a unique yet nostalgic sound that will take you back to better times and tunes.
