Mighty music at Picnic in the Park

By From page A11 | April 16, 2013

Mighty Murphys bring their traditional Irish music to Picnic in the Park on Wednesday beginning at 5 p.m. during the Davis Farmers Market. Incorporating musical experience from multiple genres, Might Murphys delivers upbeat Irish reels and jigs, plus heartfelt ballads. The weekly music is sponsored by the Davis Food Co-op.

The band includes Mike Kahn, percussion; Day Griffin, Irish flute and pipes; Christine Sproul, vocals and high whistle; Robert Cummings, guitar; and Seiko Cummings, fiddle.

Bring your own picnic or buy dinner at Picnic in the Park’s food fair. Members of Soroptimist International of Davis pour beer and wine, with proceeds benefiting local charities.

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

Spring produce — asparagus, greens, lettuces, snap peas, kiwis and strawberries — plus local eggs, honey and wine fill the market, with crafts at the north end. For more information, call 530-756-1695 or visit www.davisfarmersmarket.org.
