Artist Details:

Sean Kelly


25 years after starting his full fledged music career with The Samples, Sean Kelly continues to delight fans with music that transcends genres, age and shatters the rules of the established music industry. Throughout his career, Sean has been the driving influence of 20 albums and over 1 million records sold.


Sean started playing guitar at age 16 listening to Neil Young, Rolling Stones and Jackson Browne. Those influences mixed with his own poignant and timeless lyrics, a unique and striking voice and a mind for melodies led to songs like Little Silver Ring, Feel Us Shaking and Wild River. For many fans, these aren’t new songs or old songs, but anthems to their lives that represent the first time they met their wife or the joys of their times at college.  Read More



Liz Barnez


Liz Barnez started her musical career in the clubs on Bourbon Street in her hometown of New Orleans, Louisiana. She brought her eclectic style of music (which incorporates elements of folk, New Orleans R&B, blues, jazz, country, and a hint of pop) to Colorado in the late 80´s and hasn´t slowed down since. Her acoustic swamp groove is apparent in her guitar playing, songwriting, and soulful inspired singing..  Read More



Venue Details:


This summer marks the 5th season of Fort Collins Nursery’s Rock Garden Concert Series. For four epic nights, Fort Collins Nursery will transform from a retail space to a stunning and unique concert venue appropriately dubbed “The Rock Garden.” Audience members can relax under the evening sky, nestled along the banks of Dry Creek and the Cache la Poudre River, surrounded by beautiful plants, trees and wildlife. 


For each concert, we partner with a wonderful local non-profit organization. A portion of ticket sales plus all bar proceeds and live auction proceeds will benefit the organization. In addition to great music, each concert will feature a beer and wine tent and food truck.  Click here to see photos from past shows
