If you’ve never ventured down to catch a show in the old barn that is Codfish Hollow then I suggest you do so. Sure, it may be a bit of a trek down to Maquoketa, IA but its closer than Chicago which is drive I’ve made for a show and straight back on a few occasions.  That method could be applied here as well and its a little easier too or take your time and enjoy the journey.

It is apropos that musician/farmer Gregory Alan Isakov will be playing a show there on August 14, 2022.  When you arrive to what seems like the middle of nowhere you park in a field, ride on a tractor pulled wagon down to the barn where you can take in the art on display and enjoy drinks and food before the show. Fellow Coloradan, Daniel Rodriguez, will be opening the show.

Tickets are currently sold out but they do have a few tickets popping up now and then so be sure to add yourself to the email list to be notified when more are available.


GRAMMY-nominated singer, songwriter and musician Gregory Alan Isakov will kick off his spring headline tour next month with shows at Chicago’s Riviera Theatre, Milwaukee’s Pabst Theater, Detroit’s Royal Oak Music Theatre, Atlanta’s The Tabernacle and two nights at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium among many others. Tickets for the tour, which will feature special guests Joe Purdy and Aoife O’Donovan, are on-sale now. $1 from each ticket sold will support Real Farmer Care, whose mission is to support farmers’ self-care needs. Details can be found at

Additionally, Isakov will join The Lumineers as part of their arena tour this summer with stops at Washington’s Gorge Amphitheatre, Portland’s Moda Center, Denver’s Coors Field, Los Angeles’ Arena, San Francisco’s Chase Center, St. Paul’s Xcel Energy Center and more. Isakov will also soon perform across Europe in several upcoming shows with The Lumineers. See below for complete tour itinerary.

The forthcoming performances follow Isakov’s acclaimed album, Evening Machines, which was nominated for Best Folk Album at the 62nd GRAMMY Awards and debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Americana/Folk Albums chart. Out now via Isakov’s own label Suitcase Town Music in partnership with Dualtone Records (stream/purchase here), Evening Machines was recorded at a converted barn studio located on Isakov’s three-acre farm in Boulder County, CO, and was released to widespread critical acclaim. Of the record, NPR Music praised, “Evening Machines showcases his emotionally evocative songwriting style; rich in narrative detail and beautifully contemplative,” while Billboard declared, “characteristically ruminative…blending a gentle spaciousness with dusky atmospheres and carefully nuanced textures.”

Isakov has released four full-length albums as well as a special a collaborative record—2016’s Gregory Alan Isakov with the Colorado Symphony, which featured orchestral versions of some of Isakov’s most beloved songs. Released to widespread acclaim, NPR Music premiered the official music video for the song, “Liars,” praising, “Stunning imagery…an emotionally charged and poignant musical statement.” Ahead of the symphonic album, Isakov released 2013’s The Weatherman, which debuted at #1 on iTunes’ Singer/Songwriter chart. Of the album, The Washington Post declared, “an eloquent lyricist who delivers soul-searching ruminations filled with cosmic pondering, nomadic wisdom and plenty of earthy metaphors.”

Born in Johannesburg, South Africa, raised in Philadelphia, Isakov now calls Colorado home. When he isn’t on the road, he spends much of his time writing and recording songs in his barn studio, as well as running his farm in Boulder County, which provides produce to the farm’s CSA members, local restaurants, and Community Food Share (a Boulder County food bank).
