Iowa Songwriter Showcase featuring Danny Grause and Monica Austin

The Goldfinch Room announces its first Goldfinch on the Lawn in 2023 with award winning singer/songwriters Danny Grause and Monica Austin on Tuesday, July 18 at 7 pm.  The concert will take place on the lawn at the southeast corner of Stephens Auditorium.

Singer/songwriter Danny Grause, based in Ames, earned the Song of the Year for “Man On A Mountain” at the Midwest Country Music Awards earlier this year. As a top-notch guitar player and multi-instrumentalist, Danny is well known for weaving many influences into his live shows and taking the listener on a virtual road trip full of twists, turns, and occasional stops in funky town.

Monica Austin is a Midwest country music artist from Muscatine and was named Entertainer of the Year at this year’s Midwest Country Music Awards. Her slice-of-life writing style and swing-for-the-fences stage show resonate deeply with fans from the heartland.

Tickets are available at the door for $10 or in advance for $7 by using this link:  Patrons are encouraged to bring lawn chairs or blankets. Food and beverages will be available for purchase. No outside alcohol is permitted into the area.  The Sandwich Stop, a food truck, will serve hot grilled sandwiches during the show.
