Clean and simple, well-balanced and just punchy enough–Clinton Swanson and Friends filled Kinnaird Park with high-quality tone and rhythm on August 6. Instrumentally and vocally, the value of the years they've put in was plain to hear.

Whatever combination or permutation these Nelson-based veterans perform in, the listener knows it's a premium product being served.

Next up at the popular weekly outdoor showcase (7:00 p.m. Wednesdays until August 27) is another talented group of guys, mostly from the Nelson area.

Mountain Station, a five-piece Bluegrass band featuring various combinations of vocals, guitar, fiddle, banjo, dobro, bass and mandolin will play up top at the Kinnaird Park venue on August 13.
