Riders in the Sky (April 22)

Saddle up and ride with the one of the most popular cowboy-country bands this side of the Rio Grande : Riders in the Sky! Famously featured in television shows and movies, which include Pixar's "Toy Story 2." Riders in the Sky gallop onto the stage with a sound as unique as the sunsets on a warm summer Arizona evening. For more information, visit www.canyons.edu/offices/pio/canyonspac/riders.html.

Tom Rush and the Lovell Sister (May 16)
As the man who arguably paved the way for the folk-pop sound of the '60s, Tom Rush's decades-long impact on the American music scene has been profound. His distinctive guitar style, wry humor and warm, expressive voice have made him a legend with audiences around the world, and his Club 47 concerts helped propel into stardom such artists as Bonnie Raitt, Emmylou Harris, Joan Baez, Shawn Colvin and many more! For more information, visit www.canyons.edu/offices/pio/canyonspac/rush.html.

Los Lobos (May 29)
Broke into the mainstream music scene with its stirring rendition of the Richie Valens classic "La Bamba" for the big-screen movie, but began in 1973 as Los Lobos Del Este Los Angeles.
