Described as “a traveling concert circus of sorts” by The New York Times, the WYOmericana Caravan Tour is an annual, rolling representation of the Wyoming’s burgeoning songwriter scene. From acoustic to electric music representing roots-rock, Americana, folk, blues, indie, country, and bluegrass, the eclectic tour was founded by Seadar Rose and Aaron Davis (of Screen Door Porch) in 2012. The format features three acts “caravanning” down the road together, performing individual sets, yet harvesting a heap of ad-libbed collaborations amongst bands. A "Last Waltz" style encore with all members of the tour closes each show, adding a camaraderie element absent from most modern day traveling shows.
The award-winning documentary film, WYOMERICANA, captures the vibe of the unique traveling show and is searchable on YouTube. The tour was named a Top Arts/Entertainment Event of 2013 by Wyoming's largest print newspaper, Casper Star-Tribune, and received a tremendous amount of support from the broader Square State community including Wyoming Public Radio and Wyoming Arts Council.
The nature of the WYOmericana Caravan Tour extends beyond the music. The Caravan has partnered with several Wyoming-based brands and non-profits, including the conservation-focused Wyoming Nature Conservancy, Snake River Brewing, Mountain Khakis, and Surf Wyoming.
