The Winters Friends of the Library summer concert series continues with a free outdoor performance by the Keri Carr Band from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Thursday. The concert is at the Rotary Park Gazebo on Main Street at Railroad Avenue, in front of the Community Center.

Called “Sacramento’s supreme torch singer,” Keri Carr (formerly of Rowdy Kate) and her band blend a mix of the classic country rock made famous by the Flying Burrito Brothers, Emmylou Harris and Little Feat, and traditional Mexican music that Carr learned growing up, from dance-floor scorchers to soulful tear-jerkers.

The band features Carr on vocals, Steve Randall and Richard March on guitar, Larry Carr on drums, R.W. Grigsby on bass and Beth Reid-Grigsby on supporting vocals.

“Invite your friends and neighbors, bring a blanket or lawn chairs or sit on the grass, sip a cool drink, and enjoy some fine live music on a summer evening,” organizers said in a news release.

The Friends of the Library will have snacks, ice cream and cold drinks for sale, and all proceeds will support the Winters Library.

A selection of quality used books will be for sale.
