Backyard Concert at Jefferson Landing State Historic Site set for June 23

JEFFERSON CITY, MO, JUNE 15, 2018 – Jefferson Landing State Historic Site will host its second concert in its 2018 Backyard Concert Series 7 to 8 p.m. Saturday, June 23, on the lawn of the Lohman Building in downtown Jefferson City.

The concert will feature the River Ridge String Band, who will play traditional, old-time, Celtic, folk and bluegrass music. The public is invited to gather at the historic site to hear the traditional sounds of hammered dulcimer, guitar, banjo, mandolin and percussion. Because this is an outdoor event, participants are encouraged to bring their own lawn chairs or blankets to sit on, and a picnic supper or non-alcoholic drinks. Insect repellent is also strongly recommended.
