Winters Friends of the Library summer concert series continues with a free outdoor performance by Los Tres de Winters on Thursday, July 20, 7:00–8:30 p.m. at the Rotary Park Gazebo, on Main Street at Railroad Avenue, in front of the Community Center in Winters. The trio plays Norteño-style music, with José Luis Echeverria on accordion, Adolfo Valenzuela on bajo quinto (a large guitar with five courses of doubled steel strings), and Rafael Echeverria on bass. This lively music is a hybrid of Mexican and Spanish vocal traditions with waltzes and polkas brought to Mexico by Czech and German immigrants in the mid-nineteenth century. It evolved in the north of Mexico and is now a favorite style throughout the western U.S.
The performance is part of the Winters Friends of the Library 20th season of Summer Concerts at the Gazebo. WFoL has presented free outdoor concerts every Thursday in July since 1998. The series will conclude with Armstrong, Cary & MacGill playing hot swing from the 1920s, 30s, and 40s on July 27.
Everyone is invited to pack a picnic, bring a blanket or lawn chairs or sit on the grass, sip a cool drink, and enjoy some fine live music. The Friends of the Library will have delicious refreshments for sale, and all proceeds will support the Winters Library. This year’s concert series is co-sponsored by Waste Management and Oates Country Store. For more information, contact Keith Cary at firstname.lastname@example.org or (530) 795-3173, or visit wfol.org
