Concert Shari Rowe Concert Saturday April 20 7pm-11pm No additional cost for concert- free with admission price. Shari Rowe has earned a reputation for capturing simplistic beauty, crafting each lyric and melody with truth, sincerity and artistic integrity. This Southwestern troubadour has spent her career captivating audiences country-wide, from front porch performances to concerts on the big stage, alongside artists like Wynonna Judd, Three Dog Night, Aaron Carter, and Diamond Rio. Combining classic country and bluegrass elements with a stellar lineup of Nashville players, Rowe is changing the pace of modern country music.
