The first of three bluegrass concerts in Tenaya Park will start on Thursday, September 6, at 6:30 p.m. featuring the band, Wiffer Creek. (see profile below)  We had some leftover drinks and supplies from the Fourth of July so we’ll also be selling a hot dog, chips, and water or soda for $5 per person.  Proceeds from hot dog sales will go to the Park.

 

The second concert is on Thursday, September 20, at 6:30 p.m. featuring Drought Tolerant.  The last concert is on Thursday, October 4, at 6:00 p.m. with Grassfire.

 

The concerts are free of charge but please show your appreciation by tipping the bands.  Bring your family and friends and join us for some music-filled evenings at the Park.
 
Band profile:  Wiffer Creek is an acoustic collaboration between mandolinist and singer-songwriter Charles Pettee and guitarist and singer-songwriter Doug Bremseth.  The two were brought together in 1993 when Charles asked Doug to relocate from Fresno to Chapel Hill, North Carolina, and play banjo for the Shady Grove Band.  The musical chemistry between Charles and Doug was extraordinary from the beginning.  They immediately began performing as a duo in concert halls, clubs, and at private functions in addition to tours with the band.  The two began using the name “Wiffer Creek” to indicate a vibrant, natural, but quirky place in the imagination where music originates.  As many listeners have come to know, great songs, unique arrangements, and finger-poppin’ improvisation make Wiffer Creek a treat for both the ears and the heart.
