MARIPOSA — The 26th season of Music on the Green – brought to you by The Mariposa County Arts Council and its many fine sponsors – begins the first weekend in June, presenting live, in-concert at the Art Park in historic downtown Mariposa: Nicholas Lefler on Friday, June 2, and Soul Galaxy on Saturday, June 3.
Using Loop Technology that allows the stacking of up to 14 layers of live guitar, bass and percussion –“on the fly”- Lefler creates the sound of a modern one man group that is astounding to behold and hear.
Visit www.nicholaslefler.com for an example and more information on this master musician.
Soul Galaxy has, over the last four years, performed as a sextet, quintet, quartet and power trio, but always with the same nucleus of Northern California guitar phenom Tim Hagar and Los Angeles session percussionist Jon Kidd.
This powerhouse group will be performing blues/rock based originals, along with guitar-centric, deep cut covers. With these seasoned pros, don’t be surprised to see a special guest or two sitting in during their evening’s performance.
