The summer concert series continues Saturday night at 7 p.m. with special guests Wreck N Sow. The string quartet is all about bluegrass, folk, country western and original music. The concert is in the park's amphitheater and is completely free.
Check out this official release about the band:
An evening with Wreck N Sow is one you won’t soon forget. A string quartet, Wreck N Sow is a guitar, a bass guitar, a fiddle and a mandolin who, like Monopoly, entertain people aged eight to eighty. Bluegrass? They do that. Folk? That too. Country Western? Absolutely. Americana? Well they are from America. Using strings and voices, they offer up familiar as well as original songs of love, lost love and no love. Songs about family, heaven and hell, small animals, driving, dancing, lots of money and heavy farm equipment.
Wreck N Sow performed live for the first time in February 2006. Since then, Pierre Dupuy (guitar), Randy Cochran (bass fiddle), Mike Stave (fiddle) and Andre Dupuy (mandolin) have entertained Southern Californians at theaters, festivals, restaurants, bars, museums, private parties, two Jewish weddings and a pancake breakfast. They’ve recorded two CDs; “First Harvest”, released to coincide with their appearance at the inaugural 2007 Stagecoach Festival and 2009’s “Second Thoughts”. They are currently working on their third CD.
