Get Sidetracked at Picnic in the Park

By From page A15 | October 08, 2013

Sidetracked brings its eclectic mix of folk music to Picnic in the Park at the Davis Farmers Market in Central Park, Third and C streets in Davis.

The Sacramento-based band — which features Ann Barre, bass and vocals; Mary Miles, vocals; Greg Roth, guitar, banjo, bouzouki and vocals; Pat Roth, autoharp and vocals; Steve Barre, drums; John Palmer, fiddle, mandolin, Irish whistle and accordion; Drew Allen, guitar, harmonica and vocals; and Mark Helmar, guitar — is a Picnic in the Park favorite that plays folk, bluegrass, Western swing, Irish ballads, Bruce Springsteen and Grateful Dead music.

They have been the featured band at the Fiddletown Fiddlers Jam for seven years and play at farmers markets around Northern California.

Music starts at 5 p.m. and is sponsored by the Davis Food Co-op.

The market is open from 4:30 to 8:30 p.m. every Wednesday. There’s produce aplenty, such as melons, apricots, nectarines, peaches, plums, greens, corn, avocados, tomatoes, peppers and strawberries plus local eggs, honey, wine, beef and lamb. Crafts are at the north end of Central Park, near Fourth and C streets.

Bring a picnic from home or buy dinner from one of the many vendors. Davis Soroptimists will pour Sudwerk beer and local wine, with proceeds going to local charities.

Children’s entertainment includes Central Park’s bicycle-powered carousel, Rocknasium’s climbing structure, bounce houses, face-painting, pony rides by Greenwich Acres and balloon-maker Dilly Dally the Clown.
