The University of Wyoming Summer Programs concert series continues Wednesday, July 26, when Whippoorwill performs from 11:45 a.m.-1 p.m. on Simpson Plaza. The event is free and open to the public, and food will be available for purchase.

Whippoorwill, a trio of musicians, including former UW Cowgirls basketball player Alysia Kraft from Encampment, has a sound that is authentic, with stripped-down performances that nod to icons Neil Young and Lucinda Williams.

Kraft, who also is a member of Patti Fiasco, plays electric guitar, while fellow Whippoorwill band mates are Tobias Banks on drums and Staci Foster on guitar and banjo.

“Masterful at containing the true dynamic nature of emotions. At once, sad and joyful, yearning and fulfilled. Which element stands out strongest depends on your mood. This is beautiful, masterfully crafted, skillfully performed music,” posted on the music website Hey Reverb.
