Anderson Family Bluegrass to perform in Library Garden Summer Series in Auburn

PlacerArts will host the fourth free concert in the 25th anniversary Library Garden Summer Series with Anderson Family Bluegrass from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Sunday. Bring blankets and picnics for a family-friendly evening of music in an outdoor theater. The Auburn Library Garden Amphitheatre is located at 350 Nevada St., adjacent to the Auburn Library.

Anderson Family Bluegrass, from Grass Valley, has been a crowd-pleasing Northern California bluegrass band since its start in early 2005. Mark and Christy Anderson and their four children, Paige, Aimee, Ethan (Bo) and Daisy perform with a combination of strong lead and harmony vocals, instrumental abilities, savvy stagecraft and boundless energy and charisma.

From the renowned annual California Bluegrass Association Father’s Day Festival at the Nevada County Fairgrounds in Grass Valley to the International Bluegrass Music Association Convention in Nashville, Anderson Family Bluegrass has won over audiences with its fresh, modern approach to the traditional bluegrass sound. The band has released two CDs — Anderson Family Bluegrass in 2008 and Live from Grass Valley in 2011.

Sponsors of the free Sunday concert are the Sugar Plump Fairies, providing Auburn Community youth with greater access to the arts since 1997. Summer Series is presented by PlacerArts. To support the public service of PlacerArts in its 30th Jubilee year, please visit
