The New Music Series Continues the Grape Day Tradition by Showcasing Escondido’s local winemakers!
Escondido CA— The California Center for the Arts, Escondido continues the Levitt AMP Escondido Music Series on Saturday, October 6, 2018 from 4pm-7pm!
Headlining the next festival is Alice Wallace, who will be performing at 5:30pm with the opener, Lisa Sanders, Brown Sugar and Friends starting everything off at 4pm!
With a style that is rooted in classic country songstresses such as Patsy Cline, Dolly Parton, and Emmylou Harris, Southern California singer/songwriter Alice Wallace’s impeccable vocals and melodic, literate song-crafting skills bring a fresh touch to authentic Americana music. She has shared the stage with artists such as Wynonna Judd, Lee Ann Womack, Ray Wylie Hubbard, JD Souther, Albert Lee, Suzy Bogguss, and The Band Perry.
Lisa Sanders and Karen “Brown Sugar” Hayes are a pair of electrifying, bodacious, harmonizing singers of genuine heartfelt songs. This country-blues duo has been performing their unique style of music for over ten years to enthusiastic fans across America. Lisa Sanders and Brown Sugar are set to tour in support of their 8th CD release Shiver, nominated for San Diego Music Awards Best Pop Album.
In addition to the live music, this week we will have six local wineries in our all-ages beer & wine garden offering tastings in celebration of Grape Day. Participating wineries include: Forgotten Barrel, Jack Simon, Orfila, Vesper, Espinosa, and Bernardo. Anyone participating in the Grape Day 5K will also receive a voucher for a free beer or wine to enjoy after the race. The Center’s Public Programs Manager, Stephany Farley, commented that “We are proud to continue the Grape Day tradition here at the Center along with our partners, the Escondido Wine Region and Grape Day 5K.”
This event is free and open to the public. Each “mini-festival” includes food trucks, arts and craft vendors, kids’ activities, and other entertainers in addition to live music. We have a large, free parking lot that you can enter on Escondido Blvd. or Woodward Ave.
The Center was recently awarded the Levitt AMP [Your City] Grant Award to help transform their underused public spaces through the power of free, live music. While the program has been transforming cities across the nation since 2015, Escondido is the first city in California to be granted an award.
