We are taking our summer concert series online this June. Music in the Garden, presented by EMC Insurance Companies, will be livestreamed via Facebook Live Thursdays June 11, 18 and 25 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. The virtual events will include a concert, behind-the-scenes tours, demonstrations by Lisa LaValle from Trellis Café, activities viewers can do from home and more.
Cedar County Cobras play American roots and blues music from the last century. The music takes on an “old time” blues feel that would most likely be found in a juke-joint down a gravel road in rural Iowa. All members of the project are multi-instrumentalists and play a number of different instruments during each live performance. The music has been described as contagious, acoustic rockabilly, dancing bluegrass, or old-time country with the gritty sound of soulful blues. It is almost impossible to box the sound of the Cobras into one musical genre when you hear an eclectic mix of acoustic blues and gypsy mandolin tunes that can only be heard in the Cobra songs.
The June lineup includes:
June 11: Kevin Burt
June 18: Cedar County Cobras
June 25: Jason Walsmith
The Botanical Garden will continue to evaluate the format for the remainder of the concert series based on local, state and federal guidelines and recommendations. Please visit dmbotanicalgarden.com/music for updates.
