A number of amateur musicians meet every Saturday morning at the Riverwalk Pavilion and entertain an audience with covers of their favorite country and bluegrass tunes.
The musicians bring along their guitars, banjos, and even a double brass.
“It is a good time, and it is a good community thing for the musicians too,” said guitarist and group organizer Russ Swanson. “A lot musicians are sitting at home playing alone, and it would be great to play with someone else. It gives them a good chance to do that.”
Swanson started the troupe earlier this summer.
When someone leaves a tip for the players, they donate it to Loaves and Fishes Community Pantry.
The group plans to keep playing weekly into the fall, and are constantly accepting more musicians.
