High Strung mixes it up at Picnic in the Park

By From page A11 | September 24, 2013

High Strung bring its eclectic mix of acoustic Americana music to Picnic in the Park from 5 to 7 p.m. Wednesday at the Davis Farmers Market in Central Park, Third and C streets in Davis.
High Strung — which features Ray Delgado, guitar and vocals; Phil Minas, bass and vocals; Wayne Smith, guitar and vocals; Jim Lyon, mandolin and vocals; and Wilbur Haines, guitar and vocals — plays music from traditional and folk tunes to the Kingston Trio and the Grateful Dead with a few original tunes in between.

The band performs often at the Saturday Farmers Market. They also have played at the California Auto Museum, Dad’s Kitchen and at occasional plant sales for the UC Davis Arboretum.

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.
