Changes made to summer concert series

Thriving Ivory, Katie Herzig added, Stax being rescheduled

The Park City Performing Arts Foundation has made some changes to the Big Stars, Bright Nights concert series that will take place at the Snow Park Amphitheatre at the Deer Valley Resort.

The series will kick off Independence Day weekend with Thriving Ivory on Sunday, July 3, at 7 p.m.

The Memphis Soul: The Stax Records Tour featuring guitarist Steve Cropper, bassist Donald "Duck" Dunn, singer Eddie Floyd and keyboardist Lester Snell is in the process of being rescheduled, according to the PCPAF.

Known for their hit single, "Angels on the Moon," the San Francisco-based Thriving Ivory cites U2 and Coldplay among their musical inspirations.

Opening for Thriving Ivory will be guitar rock/singer/songwriters, The Alternate Routes and Oxford, England, piano-rock exports A Silent Film.

PCPAF closes out the summer with South African transplants, Civil Twilight on Saturday, Sept. 3, at 6 p.m.

Comprised of three lifelong friends, brothers Steven and Andrew McKellar and Richard Wouters, Civil Twilight has been playing music together since they were teenagers, emulating the rock music they heard coming out of Europe and America, from Oasis, U2 and Nirvana to The Verve, The Police, Muse and Radiohead.

Civil Twilight’s music has been featured on hit television dramas, "One Tree Hill," "House" and "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles."

Grammy Award-nominated, indie darling, Katie Herzig will open the show.

Aside from these changes and additions, the previously announced concerts will go on as planned:

Grammy Award winner Roseanne Cash, the oldest daughter of the late Country and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Johnny Cash, paid tribute to her father with her 2009 album "The List," which features 12 cover songs that were his favorites. Cash will perform July 31.

The international street band Playing for Change has touched a nerve with music lovers with its YouTube smash "Stand by Me" and especially charmed Park City audiences with its performance at the Eccles Center last October. The band, whose members hail from New Orleans and the Netherlands, will return to Park City on Aug. 7.

The Grammy Award nominated Goo Goo Dolls, famous for their Top 10 singles "Name," "Iris" and "Slide" will play for Park City audiences on Aug. 18. Singer/songwriter Michelle Branch and Virginia-based rockers Parachute will open the show.

Grammy Award winner Melissa Etheridge, who won an Academy Award for her soundtrack to Al Gore’s "An Inconvenient Truth," will return to Deer Valley on Aug. 20. The Kansas native is celebrating 20 years in the music business and hasn’t shown any signs of slowing down.
