InSights & InPerson with Lannie Garrett
Join us for a special evening with legendary Denver chanteuse Lannie Garrett! Denver fans and periodicals have voted her “Favorite Female Singer” many times over, and in 2016 Lannie was inducted into the Colorado Music Hall of Fame to cap her amazing, decades-long career. A veritable chameleon of an entertainer and singer, Lannie switches easily from a glamorous, sequined chanteuse to a blues/rock "get down” gal to a comedy spoof—as she dons a rodeo-girl costume and wig as big as a tumbleweed to transform herself into an ole-time country singer, as seen in her popular "The Patsy DeCline Show."
