Americana by Border Radio at the Carmel Valley Library on Oct. 10


October’s free family music program sponsored by the Friends of the Carmel Valley Library will be presented on Wednesday, Oct. 10, at 7 p.m. in the library’s community room.

It will feature Border Radio, a group that plays American music that ranges from hard-driving bluegrass to lonesome folk and prairie swing, giving audiences of all ages a joyful and memorable experience. Members of the group include lead singer Kelly McCune, guitar/dobro player Mike Stromberg, fiddler Jesse Olema, and upright bassist Robert Staron. The program will last 45 minutes.

Border Radio got its start in 1999 and took its name and inspiration from the outlaw border stations that blasted down-home music across the country back in the 1920s and 30s. Since then it has been featured on bluegrass, folk, and Americana radio stations across the country and has released five CDs. Its latest, Dustbowl Swing and Heartbreak, reflects the tone and range of its material. It has performed at Pershing Square Los Angeles, the Florence Folk Festival in Oregon, the Good Old Fashioned Festival in Oregon, and the Autry National Center.

The library is located at 3919 Townsgate Drive in Carmel Valley. For further information call (858) 552-1668.
