Bluegrass concert at Big Stacy

What a way to spend a great Saturday afternoon lounging with friends on soft green grass enjoying Bluegrass.

This is what Austin Parks & Recreation Department does so well.

Create a perfect way to enjoy the afternoon. Blankets were spread under the cooling shade of lush green tress. There was a laid back atmosphere of good neighbors, happy families and old friends. We had lots of great local talent being appreciated by their fans. The Lost Pines and Bottom Dollar String Band appeared. Both bands were Bluegrass, both different, both great.

If you like bluegrass, our two bands were fantastic.
Both the Bottom Dollar String Band & the Lost Pines graced our small stage.

 

lost pines Band

They've come a long way.

The Lost Pines have come a long way since busking on the street corners of South Congress back in 2007. The success of their first album, (Middle of the Morning,) paved the way for the band to make appearances on FOX, KUT, KGSR, and the KOOP, finish runner-up in the bluegrass category of the Austin Chronicle’s Reader’s Poll, and perform at many Bluegrass festivals. The Lost Pines recorded and released their second album Sweet Honey in 2011.

bottom Dollar string band

Local Central Texas boys.

Bottom Dollar String Band began making music in the hills of Central Texas in 2011 with just two instruments: a mandolin and banjo. Emerging into a six-piece band, Bottom Dollar immerses themselves in their music and heritage, and enjoys sharing their creations of old-time standards and new-grass originals live.

All and all a great concert. We look forward to our next concert at Pease Park on September 22nd,1-4 pm featuring the groups; CJ Vinson & Nano Whitman, together with Mother Falcon.
