Americana in the Park Concert Series Returns to Santa Monica’s Gandara Park this September

McCabe’s Guitar Shop, in partnership with the City of Santa Monica, presents the second annual Americana in the Park concert series in Gandara Park, Sundays in September (4, 11, 18 & 25), from 4 – 7 p.m. The free series explores the arc of Americana music from its roots to modern forms, showcasing a diverse group of Southern California artists and styles. Each concert features a family-friendly headliner and opener.

Americana in the Park is made possible by Art of Recovery, an initiative of Santa Monica Cultural Affairs. Harnessing the arts to continue playing a major role in the City’s recovery efforts, the initiative provides local artists and organizations funding and support from the City to bring engaging projects and events to the Santa Monica community. The concert series is an example of an Art of Recovery goal to expand access to the arts throughout the city through community partnerships.

The concert series lineup includes:

Each concert will feature rotating food trucks and a McCabe’s Guitar Pop-Up Shop. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own lawn chairs and blankets.

The Americana in the Park concert series will be held in accordance with the most current guidance from state and local health agencies. For more information visit:
