The Prairie Magic Music Festival is a celebration of Rock, Americana, and Blues music that takes place in August at Sunset Hill Farm County Park. This year, we’re celebrating women in the arts with an all-women lineup. Amanda Shires is taking the stage as the headliner for Prairie Magic 2020, along with Shemekia Copeland, The Accidentals, and Jerica Paliga. Get tickets here.
Amanda Shires is known for her vocals and fiddle-playing. A winner of the Americana Association’s Emerging Artist award and a Grammy Award for Best Americana Album in 2018, Shires has been busy touring with her band and as a member of husband Jason Isbell’s 400 Unit. Last year, Shires began a music group called The Highwomen with members Natalie Hemby, Brandi Carlile and Maren Morris.
Shires is a Texas-born road warrior, new mom and recently minted MFA in creative writing. She has mined a wide range of musical influences. Her influences include Leonard Cohen and John Prine, the latter of whom has been a mentor. Along with Shires, Copeland, The Accidentals and Paliga are all bringing different sounds, talents and stories to the Amphitheater at Sunset Hill.
Bring your lawn chairs and sun shades to enjoy an afternoon of amazing music at our outdoor amphitheater. Food trucks, bounce houses, a beer garden, and kids activities will be available all day.
Prairie Magic 2020 will provide food vendors, a beer garden, free water on-site all day and children’s activities at the music festival.
Show is rain or shine. In the event of severe inclement weather, tickets are non-refundable.
