The Friends of the Solana Beach Library hosted a concert by Dr. Stephen Baird and the Galapagos Mountain Boys on Feb. 12. The event celebrated, in song, the birthday of Charles Darwin.

Born on Feb. 12, 1809, Charles Darwin was the first to recognize and clearly describe the process called evolution.  In celebration of Darwin’s birthday, The Galapagos Mountain Boys reviewed the past 3 million years of the history of the cosmos using a music form they term “Scientific Gospel.”
