The Jespersons return to Music on the Green on Friday, June 21st and The T-Hawks on Saturday June 22nd.

image of the jespersonsThe Jespersons are one of Mariposa’s favorite bands and are a staple on the central California foothill music scene. The band is led by partners in music and life, Kaye and Jared Jesperson. Kaye, a Mariposa transplant from Australia, writes a large portion of their songs, sings lead and picks the bass on a cello. Jared is a multi instrumentalist, harmony and lead singer. The band has an undeniable chemistry and cross genre feel. This year they will feature prominent percussionist Skillet (Kevin McHatten) and other possible special guests…

The T-Hawks are an Americana band featuring the singing, songwriting and acoustic guitar playing of Tom Vandenavond (Tommy V.). Tom resides in Oakdale, CA and is a key player in the Americana Renaissance blossoming from that area. He will be joined by T-ranch (Andy Roberts) on banjo and vocals, Fritz Bagget on fiddle, Benny Lee Friedrich on upright bass and Jon Kidd on drums.image of the band T-Hawks
