FREE SUMMER CONCERT SERIES CONTINUES IN NORTH (Bird) PARK
AMERICANA—San Diego based band Folding Mr. Lincoln will be on stage at Bird Park Saturday, July 24th, from 5:30 to 7:30 pm. The free event is part of the North Park Community Association’s Bird Park Summer Concert Series. Weather has been wonderful for the previous three concerts (where has summer gone?), we suggest getting there early and stake out your turf. Bird Park is at the southwest corner of 28th and Upas Sts. in North Park.
Folding Mr. Lincoln is a wide ranging collection of musicians working with songs of Americana as its base. In its first album, “Within My Reach,” the band manages to take in sweet jangly pop, fiddle driven folk and Hammond drenched, country-tinged rock amongst its repertoire.
Completing the San Diego base group are husband and wife Nancy and Harry Mestyanek with Alicia Previn, Charlie Loach, Jeff Stasny and Greg Gohde.
Folding Mr. Lincoln’s second album of the same name received the 2011 San Diego Music Award for Best Americana Album. The band has an excellent website: www. http://foldingmisterlincoln.com/
