Tommy V. and the Creekers bring their well-loved down-home folk sound to the Arts Park. Tom V. originally from Wisconsin, now resides in Oakdale, California and is a key player of the country/folk scene that has been emerging from Oakdale. He’ll be joined by an all-star cast of Fritz Baggett playing fiddle and Benny Lee Friedrich on the upright bass.

On Saturday, July 16 Mike Hammar and the Nails will play in place of Nathan Ignacio. Mike Hammar is an award winning and highly notable blues guitarist and songwriter, who regularly performs at blues festivals throughout California. Mike and his band are one of the most anticipated acts to play Music on the Green, consistently drawing one of the largest audiences of the season.

A complete schedule of the talent performing throughout this summer season can be found at mariposaartscouncil.org/music-on-the-green.
