One of the most popular groups to ever perform as part of the Music at the Library concert series will make a much-anticipated return to San Juan Capistrano with two performances this weekend.
Laurel Canyon Ramblers will bring an intoxicating blend of bluegrass, folk, country-western and Americana styles to the upcoming shows at San Juan Capistrano Regional Library. Led by Herb Pedersen (vocals, banjo, guitar), Laurel Canyon Ramblers’ strong lineup also features Kenny Blackwell (vocals, mandolin), Richard Reed (vocals, guitar), Bill Bryson (bass) and Gabe Witcher (fiddle). The ensemble has released a trio of winning albums, including “Rambler’s Blues” (1995), “Blue Rambler 2” (1996) and “Back on the Streets Again” (1998).
Catching Laurel Canyon Ramblers in such an intimate setting as the outdoor courtyard at the San Juan Capistrano Regional Library is a treat for fans of progressive country music. Pedersen has been a key member of seminal groups such as the Desert Rose Band and his singing and banjo playing with the Dillards and Country Gazette is recalled with his work with Laurel Canyon Ramblers. Laurel Canyon Ramblers will perform at the San Juan Capistrano Regional Library, 31495 El Camino Real, San Juan Capistrano, at 6:30 and 8:30 p.m. Saturday, July 5, 2008. Tickets for the show are $ 1 0 for adults, $5 for children under 1 2. For more information: www.musicatthelibrary.com.
