The City of Santa Monica is partnering with McCabe’s Guitar Shop to present the Americana in the Park concert series in Gandara Park, Sundays between September 19 and October 10 from 3 – 6 pm. Four outdoor concerts explore the arc of Americana music from its roots in traditional African, Appalachian, blues and bluegrass, to its modern forms of folk and country music. Showcasing a diverse lineup of Southern California artists and American roots styles, each concert features two musical groups, with the opener geared towards children. Food trucks will be onsite along with a McCabe’s Guitar pop-up shop.
Join us on Sunday, October 10 as kid folk band The Hollow Trees opens for songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Joachim Cooder, who will perform African-inspired Americana on his mbira, an African thumb piano. Joachim is known for collaborations with his father, American roots legend Ry Cooder, having appeared together on iconic recordings such as the landmark Buena Vista Social Club sessions.
Food Trucks: Locke Down BBQ, Creamy Boys Ice Cream, and Southern Eatz
