The South Whidbey Parks & Recreation District continues its free Concerts in the Park series with the Cranberry Bog Bluegrass Band. Come out to Community Park for some toe-tappin’ fun with the band, which brings the plaintive sound of country blues along with three-part bluegrass harmonies, duets and solos.

Band members include Amanda Leisle on the mandolin, Ken Merrell with his voice and guitar, Mississippi-born Linda Rae Dobbs on bass and country boy Dave Sweetwood on five-string banjo and dobro.

The musicians will be playing from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 2 at Community Park, located at 5495 Maxwelton Road in Langley. Get dinner from the concession stand or bring a picnic, blanket or lawn chair.
