Telluride Theatre and the Sheridan Arts Foundation will host a Community Night featuring music by Emily Scott Robinson and friends on Saturday, October 19 from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. at the Sheridan Opera House. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the cost to attend is only $1.

The community night is the first of several  SAF hopes to host throughout the year.

“We’re always looking for ways to keep the Opera House accessible to everyone, no matter their income level,” said Ronnie Palamar, executive director for SAF. “A board member had suggested we do a show with $1 tickets.”

Telluride Theatre had approached SAF earlier this year about having Robinson perform.

“When the dollar night idea came up, Emily’s show seemed like a great opportunity to collaborate with Telluride Theatre and have our first $1 Community Night,” Palamar said.

Robinson, a former Telluride local, won the Telluride Troubadour Contest at this year’s Bluegrass Festival. She’s named one of Rolling Stone’s “10 New Country and Americana Artists You Need to Know” and she has been featured in Billboard, No Depression, American Songwriter and on NPR.

Robinson is a powerful performer and storyteller with a sound that mixes angelic vocals with Southern Gothic folk. For Community Night, she will perform with Telluride locals Tom Nading, Claybrook Penn, and Wyatt Listrom.

“We are so grateful and happy to co-host the first ever Community Night,” said Sasha Sullivan, artistic director for Telluride Theatre. “Emily Scott Robinson has been a part of the Telluride Theatre family since 2012, as a performer, musician, and friend. We love her and are so very proud of her success as an artist. Bringing her back to do a concert for the community is our way of saying THANK YOU to Telluride for being our awesome home.”
