A bluegrass band who plays some of the best known music of Southwestern songwriters, such as Michael Martin Murphey, Michael Hearne and Shake Russell, is visiting Carson City’s Brewery Arts Center on Saturday.

Southwestern Pilgrimage features vocal harmonies and a multitude of stringed instruments — the banjo, fiddle, guitar and dobro. It’s led by Rick Sparks, president of the Northern Nevada Bluegrass Association.

At Saturday’s performance the band will be joined by songwriter and performer Randy Brooks, writer of “Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer.”

The concert is a celebration of one year of bluegrass music at the Brewery Arts Center, which partnered with Traditional American Music Project last fall to bring the Bluegrass and Strings series monthly to Carson City.

The performance will be at 7 p.m. in the Maizie Jesse Harris Black Box Theater, 449 W. King St.

Tickets cost $10 for BAC members; $12 for students and seniors and $15 for general admission. For tickets, go to Breweryarts.org, or visit the BAC’s Artisan Store at 449 W. King St.
