Dusty Green Bones, Cherry Pickers at Brewery Arts Center Saturday
The Brewery Arts Center will continue Saturday night. Sponsored in part by the Mortimer & Mimi Levitt Foundation, a private family foundation that empowers communities to provide free, live music in the Levitt AMP Carson City Music Series at the Minnesota Street Stage.
This week’s show begins at 7 p.m. on Saturday with The Cherry Pickers. The Cherry Pickers are a young bluegrass band. In February 2013, the group embarked on a successful 13-day tour of northern California. The band went on to record its first EP in March 2013 which contained mainly original material created by members of the band. The EP was well received by the bands growing audience and “Bluegrass Today” remarked the Cherry Pickers are “A new young band…walking the line between contemporary and traditional” music.
Headlining this week is the Dusty Green Bones Band. Dusty Green Bones Band is a five-piece electric bluegrass style band that was formed in the winter of 2014 when five guys met in the heart of San Francisco. By taking musical styles from a wide variety of genres and mixing them with the high driving energy of bluegrass, they’ve created a purely organic sound. Their music aims to expand the authentic complexity of traditional bluegrass by layering ancient tones with improvisation rock and roll. Their music is progressive with an indisputable raw aesthetic as the band dares to push the musical envelope, tenaciously defining their own individual style
Irish Rockers and Young Dubliners will end the free, family friendly outdoor concert series on Sept. 2.
The public is invited to bring their own picnics, blankets and lawn chairs to the concerts, which will have an open lawn and lot setting. Food trucks, libations and kid’s activities will be available at each of the shows. Pets on leash are welcomed as well.
