Cool off in Kingston while enjoying an evening concert of New Mexico roots and bluegrass music, Saturday, July 17, from the award-winning band, the Hard Road Trio. The outdoor pavilion at the Black Range Lodge offers a covid-safe environment for music and mingling, while Black Range Vineyards will be on hand to offer wine and beer for purchase. Feel free to bring a private picnic, or partake of a neighborhood potluck supper.
The Hard Road Trio hales from Las Cruces, and features Steve Smith on mandolin, Chris Clark Sanders on guitar, and Anne Luna on bass. The Trio's CDs have wound up in the Top 5 on the Cashbox Roots charts and their original songs have garnered several New Mexico Music Awards. They also offer educational music camps for songwriting, and acoustic stringed instruments. For more see www.hardroadtrio.com and www.DNAmusiccamps.com
Seating at the Black Range Lodge outdoor pavilion includes chairs on the grass, with scattered benches under shade trees. Feel free to bring your own camp chair and/or pop-up canopy. Kingston is generally 10+ degrees cooler than Rio Grande valley communities, and parking is free. There will also be free ice tea, lemonade and water available, plus accessible rest rooms.
Part of the Lodge’s summer Starlight Concert Series, the concert is sponsored by the Sierra County Arts Council (SCAC). General admission is $15, or $10 for Seniors, Children and SCAC members, at the door. Your attendance supports live music, and Sierra County Arts Council, a non-profit organization, whose volunteers bring you events like this. Come enjoy an outdoor gathering in the fresh air of the Gila National Forest, and celebrate summer.
