If you feel the Lagoon Concert Series wouldn't be complete without a concert featuring a Celtic band, then you'll be happy to hear that the Colorado-based band, The Indulgers, will perform at the first concert of the summer. The Indulgers have been Denver and Boulder's premiere Celtic band since they came into existence about ten years ago.
You just might shout, "Color me Irish!" when you hear who is performing at the July 3 Lagoon concert.
The Indulgers are a Celtic Rock band with a unique, western twist, who hail from right here in Colorado.
It all began with their first song "In Like Flynn," written and recorded twelve years ago - which garnished awards and praise for Best Ethnic Song of the Year as well as the CD receiving Best Celtic Album of the Year.
“A Colorado-based band with serious Celtic roots.”

“The Indulgers have become Denver and Boulder’s premiere Celtic band since starting 10 years ago.”
The Indulgers continue to create and develop an exciting new blend of Celtic rock, western and folk rhythms that move and inspire, delivering energetic live shows throughout the United States.
The July 3 Lagoon concert (the first of the season) will include a celebration of 150 years of the Morrill Land-Grant Act. Come help us commemorate the groundbreaking legislation that resulted in the establishment and financial support of colleges educating people in agriculture, engineering, and military tactics.
As part of the celebration, free bottles of water and cupcakes will be given away.
The Lagoon Summer Concert Series has been a summer event in Fort Collins for more than 17 years. Thanks to the generous support of Colorado State University, this event has continued to thrive and grow into the success it is today.
It is safe to say that the hundreds who attended years ago are part of the thousands who attend today.
