Denver Botanic Gardens 2014 summer lineup: St. Vincent, Sheryl Crow and more

The Denver Botanic Gardens has just announced its 2014 lineup, and it is hefty. Starting June 24 with March Cohn and Mavis Staples and concluding on September 6 with St. Vincent, the Garden's two locations (on York Street and in Chatfield) will also host Joan Baez, Barenaked Ladies, B.B. King and more. The full lineup is below; all concerts start at 7 p.m. unless noted.

Followers of the summer series won't be surprised at this assortment of artists. It bears some resemblance in ambition to last year's, which featured Tony Bennett, Steve Martin and, in fact, St. Vincent, who was touring with David Byrne at the time. Swallow Hill Music took over booking duties from Nobody In Particular Presents in 2010. Tickets for all this year's concerts go on sale April 22 at 10 a.m. Prices range from $49 to $86.50. Members can get pre-sale tickets starting April 14.
