VAIL — After the first two weeks of the fifth annual event, including a full-day event on the Fourth of July, the Vail Summer Bluegrass series brings in Kentucky-native Tyler Childers for the third week of the four-part series.

Vail Bluegrass is free to attend and all shows go on as scheduled, rain or shine. Childers performs Wednesday, July 11, at 7 p.m. at the tent in Lionshead Village. Local bluegrass band Hardscrabble opens at 6 p.m.

“Bringing Tyler’s band to Vail is such a treat for me and to our patrons,” said Ariel Rosemberg, promoter for the series. “His Southern storytelling, singer-songwriter approach to music is truly authentic and so representative of his roots with a contemporary take on country and Americana. It fits perfectly into the direction we’re taking Vail Bluegrass.”

Childers’ debut album, “Purgatory,” was produced by Grammy Award-winners Sturgill Simpson and David Ferguson, and according to his biography, is a “semi-autobiographical sketch of his growth from wayward youth to happily married man, told in the tradition of a Southern gothic novel with a classic noir antihero who may just be irredeemable.”
