The Brewery Arts Center is in the middle of a season of free concerts under the stars in Carson City. With six more concerts left, the series invites families, friends and neighbors to head down to the Minnesota Street Stage to hear a diverse lineup of talent.

Saturday’s concert is a doubleheader featuring The Sierra Sweethearts and Southwestern Pilgrimage at 7 p.m.

The Sierra Sweethearts are Lynn Zonge, Cindy Gray, Kristell Moller and Catherine Matovich, who describe their music as “bluegrassy, swingy, fiddley and fun.”

Southwestern Pilgrimage plays American music, combining original material with songs from Southwestern songwriters. The band features Rick Sparks on guitar and vocals; Don Timmer on mandolin; Robert Erlich on fiddle and Karen Roemmich on bass.

Sponsored in part by the Mortimer & Mimi Levitt Foundation, a private family foundation who empowers communities to transform neglected public spaces into thriving destinations through the power of free, live music, the Levitt AMP CARSON CITY Music Series presents 10 free, family-friendly concerts to the public.

The series will continue with a diverse lineup of talent spanning genres such as reggae, country, soul, zydeco and bluegrass.

Dangermuffin is the next performer on July 9, followed by Prezident Brown on July 16, Southern Drawl Band on July 23, Whitney Myer on July 30 and SambaDá on Aug. 6. All remaining concerts are at 8 p.m.

The public is invited to bring their own picnics, blankets and lawn chairs to the concerts, which have an open lawn and lot setting. Food trucks, libations and children’s activities will be available at each of the shows along with information about local nonprofit groups. The Minnesota Street Stage is at the Brewery Arts Center’s outdoor concert venue at 449 W. King St. at the corner of King and Minnesota streets.
