NEW THIS SUMMER: Join us 5-6:30 p.m. for a pre-show bluegrass jam outdoors in the pavilion! Bring your acoustic instrument and join in, or just listen. Come hungry -- the Smoking J's Barbeque food truck will be parked onsite with dinner eats for purchase.

By the Lee is a duo born of the Colorado-based band The Railsplitters. Inspired by touring the world together, Lauren Stovall and Peter Sharpe began cultivating new music while on the road.

Their sound draws on old-time, bluegrass and folk, featuring Lauren's striking lead vocals and Peter's skillful picking on mandolin and tenor guitar.

By The Lee creates an intimate musical listening experience blending nostalgia along with modern songwriting.

Doors open 6:15 p.m. $10 general, $5 members and students w/ ID, free for ages 12 and younger.

Opening acts are Colorado native/now New Yorker folk, jazz, soul, and progressive pop vocalist and songwriter Ruby Greenberg, and Black Forest guitarist and singer Kurt Astor.

Baked goods, coffee, tea, and water available for purchase in the Community Center.
