Acclaimed folk singer/guitarist Gregory Alan Isakov announced on Tuesday that he will return to Red Rocks Amphitheatre this summer for a headlining performance on August 4th. The Colorado native has performed at the famous outdoor amphitheater over the last few years, and this time around he’ll take the stage with support from indie-folk trio, Mountain Man, which includes Sylvan Esso singer, Amelia Meath.

The August 4th show will be Isakov’s third time headlining a show at Red Rocks, located near his current home base of Boulder, Colorado. He’s returned to the venue the past few years since making his Red Rocks debut back in 2016, with the most recent coming last fall with a show alongside Patty Griffin in September. He’ll return to his hometown venue in August with a new book of songs, as the softly-spoken musician released his seventh studio album, Evening Machines, back in October.

Isakov was included in the recent lineup announcement for the 2019 installment Telluride Bluegrass Festival scheduled for this June. He’ll have plenty of time to get warmed up for his appearance at the Colorado festival with a run of his own headlining tour dates scheduled to take place throughout January and February. His 2019 winter tour is actually scheduled to begin tomorrow (Wednesday) night with a sold-out show at The Ready Room in St. Louis.

Mountain Man has also built a solid reputation within the Americana and folk scene since beginning their run together back in 2010, although they’ve taken the last few years off to clear room for Meath’s busy schedule as part of synth-pop duo Sylvan Esso. The trio performs most of their material a-cappella, although they often include acoustic guitar to balance the organic sounds of their natural vocals. The trio returned in 2018 to release their first new album since 2010 with Magic Ship.

Tickets for the August 4th performance begin general on-sale starting this Friday, January 11th, and can be purchased here.
