Concert Preview: Grace Potter at City Park

Park City Institute is looking for a permanent summer home after parting ways with longtime host Deer Valley, but they’re using the uncertainty as an opportunity to host a unique Grace Potter concert at City Park on Friday, July 13. The one-off event showcases the grammy-nominated singer-songwriter on a popup stage in the City Park field.

Potter cut her teeth in the live music scene while touring extensively with her band, Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, in 2002. The band’s prolific schedule saw them traversing the country on the music-festival circuit to the tune of 200 shows a year before commercial success came with their self-titled album in 2010.

Potter’s also had an accomplished solo career, which includes a Grammy nomination for her duet “You and Tequila” with Kenny Chesney. Her latest solo effort, 2015’s Midnight, features standout tracks “Empty Heart” and “Your Girl” that combine rollicking rhythms with Potter’s trademark diverse vocal expression. Performing live, Potter brings a well-hewn energy to the stage with a mix of blues, rock, country and folk. You can also expect a curated nod to Potter’s jam-band roots—check out her cover of “Friend of the Devil” from Dear Jerry on Spotify for evidence.

Tickets to the 6 p.m. show are available for $49 and are available on the Park City Institute website.
