Prescott seems to be a popular stop for touring bands traveling through the state of Arizona. And on Sunday, Sept. 6, LA based band The Wild Reeds, will make the stop on their way through for the annual Women in Song concert at the Highlands Center for Natural History, benefitting the Prescott Area Women's shelter. Presented by The Folk Sessions, this is the final show at the Highlands Center before The Folk Sessions starts its sixth season with the Prescott Center for the Arts.
Folk Sessions Director Tom Agostino said the desire to bring in The Wild Reeds came about because they were already on tour.
"The timing worked out right," Agostino said, adding that he liked their energy when listening to them. "Every year, we try to bring in different headlines that are a little unique."
Agostino said the band is one of those groups that has been traveling nonstop, noting that they've been doing so for the past five years and have been garnering a lot of acclaim.
As far as coming to Prescott as part of the band's tour, Agostino said the area is a nice stop between Flagstaff and Phoenix. As such, Agostino said that Prescott has seen performances by quite a few good groups.
Following the concert at the Highlands Center, The Folk Sessions kicks off its sixth season with the Prescott Center for the Arts. Agostino called it a good season.
"Every year, the level of bands rises," he said, mentioning one singer coming is Trinity Seely. "Every year, we see some very good groups."
The Wild Reeds will be at the Highlands Center for Natural History, 1375 S. Walker Rd., on Sunday Sept. 6 at 2 and 7 p.m. Tickets are $17 and can be purchased online at www.folksessions.com or at the Highlands Center Gift Shop.
