Steamboat Springs Folk-, blues- and rock-influenced singer-songwriter Michelle Shocked is set to perform a free concert at Headwall today.
"We think it will be real good it will be a little different than other things. That's part of the series, to have some diversity," Joe Kboudi said.
Shocked, from Texas, has several albums under her belt and is expected to put on a good show.
So far, the Steamboat Springs Free Summer Concert Series has had a successful summer. Shocked will mark the fourth act to perform at Headwall or Howelsen Hill in the series.
The last concert, Little Feat on July 9, was hugely successful, with about 4,000 people in attendance.
"I think Little Feat was one of the best-attended shows, if not the best attended shows, that we've had," Kboudi said. "It was a beautiful night, a great band and the community was just having a great time."
Recently, a fifth and final free concert in the series was added. On Sept. 1, the Marshall Tucker Band will play a 3:30 p.m. show at Howelsen Hill.
Today, gates will open for Shocked at 5 p.m. at Headwall, at the base of the Steamboat Ski Area.
