A cowboy band from Auburn, Calif., is bringing the spirit of the American West in a concert at 7 p.m. Saturday in Brewery Arts Center’s MHJ Black Box Theater, 449 W. King St.
Dust in My Coffee blends Western and Celtic music. The band, whose members are Brett Bush; Eric Holmberg; Randy Keith; Chuck Jamison; and Laura Tjoelker, says its songs are mostly about “cowboying, drinking, horses and women.”
The concert is a celebration of one year of bluegrass music at the Brewery Arts Center, which has partnered with Traditional American Music Project last fall to bring the Bluegrass and Strings series monthly to Carson City. The series gives local and out-of-town musicians a chance to showcase their traditional American music talent.
“Bluegrass, like jazz, can be considered a uniquely American musical contribution. Bluegrass has strong roots in the mountain west and Carson city and it shows in the great turnout at the bluegrass series at the BAC,” said Kyle Horvath, president of the Brewery Arts Center.
Tickets cost $8 for BAC members; $10 for general admission and $15 at the door.
