Next Main Stage Concert:

Jalan Crossland

Jalan Crossland
Friday, September 29, 7:30 p.m.

Come help LAFTA kick off the new concert season with the pride of Ten Sleep, Wyoming. Jalan Crossland is sure to please if you like your traditional music with a little more “hair” on it. Jalan's songs paint vivid portraits of colorful characters that dot the landscape in the small towns and backcountry of the 21st century American West. His sound draws on old-time country and bluegrass spiced up with a good dollup of rock-n-roll, delivered with high energy and good humor. And there is sure to be a trailer park fire somewhere along the way.

You can purchase tickets for main stage concerts on-line with your credit card via PayPal. Tickets will be available at the door the night of the show, but get your tickets early because we sometimes sell out and have to turn people away.
