2014-07-25 · By Editor
This Sunday, July 27th, Rancho Los Cerritos Historic Site is hosting the second of 3 free Summer concerts in their beautiful backyard, this time featuring the dazzling musicianship and harmonies of the Silverado Bluegrass Band. Hailing from Riverside County, they’ve been a fixture in West Coast festivals, and singer Mike Nadolson has been called “the best flatpicker West of the Mississippi” by Don Tucker of the Huck Finn Jubilee. To learn more about the band, and to hear recordings, visit the Silverado Bluegrass Band website.
The Summer Concert Series concludes on August 24th with The Dustbowl Revival, a big band with deep roots in what’s come to be known as Americana music. They earned the L.A. Weekly’s Best Band of 2013 award for their fresh mix of Bluegrass, Big Band and Swing.
Concerts begins at 5:30 PM and ends at 7 PM. The gate to the backyard opens at 4:30 for pre-concert picnicking. Guests are welcome to bring a blanket or lawn chair. Pets are not allowed.
About Rancho Los Cerritos:
Rancho Los Cerritos is located at 4600 Virginia Road in Long Beach. Built in 1844, the adobe home and grounds echo with the rich history of Spanish, Mexican, and American California and with the families who helped transform Southern California from its ranching beginnings to the modern and urban society it is today. The two-story Monterey-style adobe is primarily furnished to reflect occupants and lifestyles from the 1860s-1880s. The site, a National, State and Long Beach Historic Landmark, also includes historic gardens and a research library and archives. The Rancho is operated by the Rancho Los Cerritos Foundation in private-public partnership with the City of Long Beach.
