WSLR Events

When you buy tickets in advance for a WSLR show at Fogartyville, your name will be at Will Call at the door and you will have a seat reserved. You will not receive tickets in the mail. Reserved seats will only be held for 10 minutes after the published start time of the show. If your party purchases tickets separately but would like to sit together – please give us a call or send us an email to let us know. This will help save confusion on the day of the show. Student tickets are available at ½ price for all WSLR shows and kids under 12 are free with an adult. If you are attending the show with students – purchase adult tickets online – then either call 894-6469 or email info@wslr.org to let us know the total number in your party so we make sure we have seats for you. Look forward to seeing you at one of our events soon!



Passerine CD Release Party

Saturday, June 18, 2016 - 8:00pm
$10 Advance / $15 Day Of Show
Fogartyville, 525 Kumquat Court
Sarasota  Florida
United States
Passerine’s distinctive sound combines vocal harmonies, the crisp rhythms of an acoustic guitar, the haunting voices of the fiddle and dobro (resonator slide guitar), the resonant lows of an acoustic bass. With inventive vocal harmonies and song-writing, supported by the sounds of acoustic strings, Passerine offers a fresh take on traditional folk and bluegrass music as well as a repertoire of original songs that range from sweet ballads to the edgier side of contemporary Americana.

Singer/Songwriter Night w/ Mark Stuart

Friday, June 24, 2016 - 8:00pm
Fogartyville, 525 Kumquat Court
Sarasota  Florida
United States
We'll have 3 singer/songwriters on the bill - Mark Stuart is our first. After many years on the Americana/Folk circuit, Stuart has cultivated a very rounded performance. His show consists of storytelling, flashy guitar "chops", and songs that seem to draw from his rock, blues, country, and folk music roots. Mostly, this artist from Tennessee has toured solo or in a notable duo with his wife ("Stacey Earle & Mark Stuart"). There were stints along the way as a sideman, though (Steve Forbert, Freddy Fender, Steve Earle, Joan Baez).

Claire Lynch Band

Sunday, July 17, 2016 - 7:00pm
$20 Advance / $25 Day Of Show
Fogartyville, 525 Kumquat Court
Sarasota  Florida
United States
“Lynch is the perfect mix of that famed trio Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris and Dolly Parton. She's got the interpretive skills of Ronstadt, the clear and pure voice of Harris and the bluegrass soul of Parton...but she deserves all the accolades we can toss her way.” -The Atlanta Journal-Constitution "...one of the classiest acts in bluegrass today ... infinitely expressive voice..." The Nashville Scene
