Skirball’s Family Amphitheater Performances: The Show Ponies
August 30, 2015 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pmFree
This summer, Skirball is putting on a summer concert series called “Family Amphitheater Performances.” Each weekend features a new band with a different sound and style that will take you and your family on a musical road trip across America.
Invoking the spirit of Mark Twain’s The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, the Show Poniesenliven audiences with exuberant indie folk and bluegrass.
Founding members Andi Carder and Clayton Chaney—based in California by way of Texas and Arkansas, respectively—joined forces in 2011. Now a five-member ensemble, the Show Ponies have performed at a variety of venues across the West, opening for the Rascal Flatts, Easton Corbin, and Robert Earl Keen, among others. Their critically acclaimed music, recorded on two full-length albums and one EP, has found a steady place on the Americana charts.
Imbued with charm, pathos, and boldness, the Show Ponies deliver poetic songs that preserve the wildness and wonder of the West.
Performances at 12 pm and 2 pm.
