CONCORD, CA 08/30/2021 – The Concord Couch Concerts team continues with their new “Singer-Songwriter Saturday” series this Saturday, September 4, from 12 PM to 2 PM in Todos Santos Park. The free event will feature six different local artists who will each play 15-20 minutes of entirely original music.
The mostly acoustic concert will include performances by multi-instrumentalist Xavier Guererro (a.k.a. “Spirit Drive”); Americana duo Painted Wind; ukulele and acoustic guitar duo Grace & Melody; percussive guitar instrumentalist who goes by the stage name “katgrüvs”; Scotty On’Neil from the local rock fusion group New Frantics; and Chris Rivera & Troy Hazleton of the local rock/reggae group Planting Seeds.
The Concord Couch Concerts team has partnered with Todos Santos Business Association Arts Foundation to continue the series through October. “There’s a lot of interest in keeping this going. We have every intention of bringing it back in the spring of 2022, and already have some artists lined up,” said event organizer Dave Hughes.
All featured artists are performing on a volunteer basis for the sheer love of celebrating local original music. While tips are of course welcome, there is no cost of admittance to this community event.
Organizers encourage the public to bring their own water and sun protection, including pop-up tents.
