Portland-based Renegade Stringband in free concert August 1

Join the Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Arts Council for the next Summer Concert in the Park on Wednesday, August 1st at Animal Acres Park in Lake Forest Park featuring the Renegade Stringband. All concerts are free, family friendly and start at 7pm, rain or shine. Pack a picnic, lawn chair or blanket and experience the fun! 

Renegade Stringband is a hard driving bluegrass quintet based in Portland, Oregon. The band formed in 2010, meeting through the Portland music scene and Lewis and Clark College. Mandolin, banjo, bass, guitar, and three-part harmony fuse to form the band’s soulful, exuberant sound. Their repertoire runs the gamut from finely-honed originals to covers of songs by the Black Keys, Woody Guthrie, Tom Waits, and Ella Fitzgerald.

In 2010, the band toured the West Coast, delighting audiences at festivals everywhere from Seattle, WA to Santa Barbara, CA. They kicked off 2011 with a sold out show at Portland’s Laurelthirst, and followed it up with a performance at the High Dive that the Seattle Observer reviewed, saying that the band “trades instrumental solos like a jazz sextet.” The band headed into the studio in March 2011 to record original songs for their first self-titled album. Come and hear some original tunes by this up and coming Northwest band and visit their webpage to find out more.

The 2012 summer concert series is sponsored by Era Living/Aljoya Retirement Community, the cities of Shoreline and Lake Forest Park and 4Culture King County.

The Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Arts Council is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to nurture all of the arts in the community through programs and events, arts education, advocacy, and support for artists and arts organizations.
