Downtown Bend: Earthlings – an Interactive Folk Concert
July 22 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm
Locally grown sing-alongs and banjo grooves for all ages!
This is an in-person program. All children must be accompanied by a caregiver.
Join local songwriter Ian Carrick for an upbeat, heartfelt performance to deepen our appreciation of this place, our ancestors, one another, and ourselves. With rhythmic refrains, toe-tapping banjo grooves, and a lively Celtic spirit, this will be a celebratory community-building event. Ian hopes listeners big and small walk away with refreshed minds, open hearts and songs in their pockets.
