Goldfinch on the Lawn: Danny Grause & Monica Austin

Back to Events

Danny Grause: Danny has always been a bit tough to pin down. His music starts with a solidly country and americana lyric as the foundation. Where it goes from there is anyone’s guess. As a top-notch guitar player and multi-instrumentalist Danny is well known for weaving many influences into his live shows and taking the listener on a virtual road trip full of twists, turns, and occasional stops in funky town. Enjoy the ride.  His song, Man on a Mountain, won the 2022 Midwest Country Music Organization’s Song on the Year.

Monica Austin: Monica Austin is a MidWest Country music artist from the Quad City Area. Her slice-of-life writing style and swing for the fences stage show resonate deeply with fans from the heartland while providing listeners outside it a glimpse into their lifestyle. Monica’s brand of country music didn’t originate on a farm but rather in a little trailer park in Cambridge, IL. Her tendency to perform in bare feet over the genre-standard cowgirl boots is nearly as indicative of her journey as her lyrics.  Monica won the 2022 Midwest Country Music Organization’s Entertainer of the Year.

Seating will not be provided. Please remember to bring your own lawn chair or blanket to sit on.
