Sierra Sweethearts in concert at Dangberg Historic Park
Sierra Sweethearts will bring bluegrass music to Dangberg Home Ranch Historic Park at 6:30 p.m. Thursday.
The all-woman ensemble is last year’s winner of the “Forte Award for Northern Nevada’s Best Bluegrass/Americana Band.”
The Sweethearts serve up a mix of bluegrass, cowboy, swing and country classics, spiced with generous amounts of humor.
“A favorite of Carson Valley and beyond, these gals always entertain,” said the park’s events manager, Kim Harris.
The event is part of the park’s Dangberg Summer Festival and is sponsored by Douglas County, Carson Valley Accounting, Full Circle Soils & Compost, Horse Tales Publications, Allied Sanitation Services, Minden Fortnightly Club, A.B.E. Printing and Copy Center, Carson Valley Inn, Carson Valley Sertoma, Jacobs Berry Farm, Cowboy’s Café, Personal Pedigree Genealogy and the Frances C. and William P. Smallwood Foundation.
The concert is also funded in part by the Nevada Arts Council, a state agency, and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.
The full Dangberg Summer Festival event schedule is available at dangberghomeranch.org.
The Dangberg ranch house will be open for one hour before the concert for anyone who would like an introduction to the Dangberg family history and the park’s artifact collection.
Admission is $10 for adults, $5 for members and free for 16 and younger.
Visitors are asked to bring their own seating and a picnic dinner to enjoy. Dogs aren’t permitted; only legitimate service animals.
The park is at 1450 Highway 88, 1/4 mile north of the Carson Valley Veterinary Hospital.
