11am Trails and Rails. Walt, Paula, and Mike have been scarce on our festival stage is recent years; take advantage of this chance to catch up with them and there collection of classic American folk tunes.
noon Plow. San Diego’s premier bluegrass band, which isn’t afraid to venture outside the boundaries of that genre, always provides a lively and uplifting set.
1pm Watson, Beldock, and Beach. Paul Beach’s bass anchors David Beldock’s flowing guitar and Peggy Watson’s spectacular voice. They’ve been writing and recording relentlessly through the pandemic; come hear them like you’ve never heard them before.
2pm Zzymzzy. We’ll make sure to leave some room for the dancing that always erupts when our favorite Gypsy jazz ensemble takes the stage.
