Siesta Valley Strings and Things Festival

July 31 @ 1:00 pm - 10:00 pm


Come out and enjoy a beautiful day in the hills listening to the sounds of fiddles, guitars, mandolins, and banjos while you sip something delightful and picnic under the trees.  The Bruns Amphitheater is a spectacular and intimate setting in the Berkeley hills. It has long been the home to Cal Shakespeare, and we are delighted to bring live music to this magical Bay Area venue.

Sam Bush – There is only one son of Kentucky both finding a light of inspiration from Bill Monroe and his Blue Grass Boys and catching a fire from Bob Marley and The Wailers. Only one progressive hippie allying with like-minded conspirators, rolling out the New Grass revolution, and then leaving the genre’s torch-bearing band behind as it reached its commercial peak. There is only one consensus pick of peers and predecessors, of the traditionalists, the rebels, and the next gen devotees. Music’s ultimate inside outsider.

AJ Lee and Blue Summit – AJ Lee & Blue Summit are pure, beautiful American music. Soaring harmonies, top notch picking and strumming as well as a healthy respect and reverence for the classic country, bluegrass and folk music of the past all add up to a band who are masters of the genre. The band are great torch bearers of the music that helped build America.

Tony Furtado – is an evocative and soulful singer, a wide-ranging songwriter and a virtuoso multi-instrumentalist adept on banjo, cello-banjo, slide guitar and baritone ukulele who mixes and matches sounds and styles with the flair of a master chef.

Other bands include great local stars Nat Keefe and Eric Yates of Hot Buttered Rum, Sass n’ Harmony, and Darcy Noonan.
