SAF & Barbed Wire Present Nichole Wagner, 8/24

Singer-songwriter Nichole Wagner is live at Telluride’s Sheridan Opera House on Friday, August 24. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.; music begins at 7:30 p.m. There is a $10 cover charge at the door. Scroll down for a preview of the show.

Austin-based Nichole Wagner’s music is rooted in Americana-folk traditions, with disarmingly honest lyrics accented by wistful alto. Within two years, she went from her first open mic to opening for Joan Osborne.

Regardless of the impression some of her lyrics might give, Wagner is not obsessed with fire. However the lady does have a penchant for playing with all manner of combustible metaphors, including the myriad ways a human heart can burn. And if compounding that with a penchant for unflinching, often brutal honesty sounds akin to mixing sparks and gasoline, well, that’s just the way love goes sometimes.

With the songs on her full-length debut, And the Sky Caught Fire (July 2018), Wagner’s just calling it like it is.
