MARIPOSA — Local musician Scott Patrick Little is set to perform for Music on the Green on Friday, July 23. No stranger to the Art Park stage, or many a stage throughout California’s central valley and foothills, Scott is a very active and hardworking performer. Scott creates a fat sound for his solo act by playing a bass drum simultaneously along with his guitar and using effects such chorus on his vocals. The audience will be singing along as he smoothly executes his renditions of hit songs spanning genres and generations.
On Saturday, July 24th, The Soul Galaxy returns to Music on the Green. If you are into the blues, or virtuosic electric guitar playing, you will enjoy this band. Guitarist Tim Hagar is a full blown shredder whose career as a professional guitar player has seen him playing as a contemporary to some of the best on some of the most renown stages in the world. Holding down the drums, and no slouch in his own right is Jon Kidd. Jon, also has had quite an extensive career as a pro drummer on the southern California music scene as well as our local scene. Charles Green brings the funk on the bass.
A complete schedule of the talent performing throughout this summer season can be found at www.mariposaartscouncil.org. Tips for the performers will be solicited, encouraged, and appreciated. All performances begin at 7 p.m. (unless otherwise noted) at the Mariposa County Art Park, located on Hwy. 140, between 4th and 5th Streets, in historic downtown Mariposa, CA.

A budding watercolor painter, Stock was selected by the Arts Council to create original artwork for Music on the Green’s design material. “Growing up in Yosemite, I’ve always had a huge appreciation for the natural world…” says Autumn. “It has inspired all of my paintings, and plein air watercolor in particular. This is such a special way to share my work with my community!” Autumn can be contacted for commission via email firstname.lastname@example.org.
