The Pinedale Fine Arts Council (PFAC) is proud to present Austin-based blues rocker Garrett LeBeau and his full band performing live Saturday, August 12 at the American Legion Park in Pinedale.
LeBeau performs as part of PFAC’s Soundcheck Summer Music Series which features free concerts all summer long in Pinedale.
Nashville-based singer/songwriter Rachel Baiman will open the Aug. 12 show, which kicks off at 5:30 pm (free admission).
Garrett Lebeau's words and music ranges from gritty to tender to funky-- genuine songs that are completely his own and draws instant vocal comparisons to Boz Scaggs, Al Green, Van Morrison, and Aaron Neville.
Though he is Austin-based, Lebeau has deep ties to Wyoming. He is a registered member of the Shoshone tribe and was born and raised on the Wind River Indian Reservation near Lander, Wyoming. LeBeau tours around the U.S. with his 4-piece band and has been privileged to share the stage with Mavis Staples and Boz Scaggs.
Opening act Rachel Baiman is perhaps best known as one half of the Nashville-based duo 10 String Symphony. Her new album, "Shame" is an exploration of growing up female in America and is out now on Free Dirt Records. Baiman has been described as "a goose-bump-instigating talent [reminiscent] of a young Gillian Welch."
Immediately following the concert in the park, Baiman will play an after-party show at Boondocks Pizza (free).
The Soundcheck Summer Music Series is presented by the Pinedale Fine Arts Council with support from the Town of Pinedale, The Pinedale Travel and Tourism Commission, The Sublette County Recreation Board and the Wyoming Cultural Trust Fund.
