Tierro Band Live at River Runners @ River Runners Browns Canyon

Join us for a good time in the Summer heat by the River for a Sunday show! 6 pm – 9 pm, family friendly!

The combination of talent, musicianship, and passion exchanged between Bridget Law (founding member of Elephant Revival) and Tierro (Kan’Nal, Otis Taylor Band & producer of Arise Music Festival) makes for an unforgettable concert experience. The Gypsy funk get-down vibe comes to life with drums by Jonny Jyemo (founder of Jyemo Club) and special guest bass player Dango Rose (of Elephant Revival). Now joined by Nepalese born Nabin Shrestha on tablas and KymbreAnne Shingara the band develops a culturally diverse musical experience!
