The Winters Friends of the Library summer concert series continues with a free outdoor concert by The Clinton Davis Trio on Thursday, July 11, 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.
Clinton Davis plays old-time American folk music. A fifth-generation Kentuckian, Davis grew up in Carroll County with old-time music lingering in the air and in his family’s past. He currently performs on guitar, banjo, fiddle, harmonica, mandolin, and piano. In 2015, No Depression called his work “a joyous and soulful restoration of one of the lost treasures of American musical tradition.” He will be joined by guitarist Tim McNalley and mandolinist Nick Montemarano, with special guests Mara Kaye, a classic blues vocalist from Brooklyn, and Rebecca Stout, a traditional flatfoot dancer from Alabama.
The performance is part of the Winters Friends of the Library 22nd season of Summer Concerts at the Gazebo. WFoL has presented free outdoor concerts every Thursday in July since 1998. This year the series will continue with Tropicali Flames playing swing, vintage jazz, and rhythm & blues on July 18 and Los Tres de Winters playing Norteño-style music on July 25.
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.
