Tickets and Events
It just makes perfect sense: old-timey, finger-picking, giving-it-their-all bluegrass players uniting for the environment.
This weekend, at the Dunsmuir-Hellman Historic Estate in Oakland, the Greenbelt Alliance hosts a foot-stomping bluegrass festival. Sit, or more likely, dance outside to fiddlers, banjo players, and throat-busting singers, as they romp through their original tunes and traditional classics from the American songbook. It's great music for a great cause: the Greenbelt Alliance has been advocating for Bay Area's open spaces for over fifty years. They've protected 1,150,000 acres of the area's most vibrant, vital natural places. Use this deal for admission to the family-friendly festival on Saturday June 4, and relish in acts like The Brothers Comatose, Marley's Ghost, and Laurie Lewis & The Right Hands.
Save the environment with bluegrass. Or for this weekend, greengrass.
For 50 years, the Greenbelt Alliance has worked with local communities and partner groups to help secure long-term protection for more than 1.1 million acres of open space, establish urban growth boundaries around 26 cities and five counties, and endorse the creation of 60,000 homes within existing urban areas. Their award-winning research has empowered local residents to guide the future of their communities, and helped local planners and elected officials develop smart growth strategies.
