Evenings of music outdoors at Santa Barbara Botanic Garden continue with a Summer Serenade Series concert on Friday July 22 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Seating is on the Island View lawn outside the Pritzlaff Conservation Center and guests are encouraged to bring blankets and picnics. Leashed dogs are also – and always – allowed at the Garden. The series began on July 15 and featured local poets, including a former Santa Barbara poet laurate, and local solo musicians.
Tickets are available online at $25 for adults, and $10 for youth (3-12 years old)
The July 22 concert features a musical showcase, curated by Galavant, of three local singer-songwriters.
Benjamin Catch is a 20-year-old singer-songwriter born and raised in Santa Barbara. Musically, he is inspired by nature and seeks to “capture feelings of wonder, reverence, and youthful optimism” in his original music.
Carly Powers is a singer-songwriter from Goleta who has been singing and performing in bands for almost 15 years. She is also a member of local folk duo the Brambles.
Conner Cherland performs a blend of styles from Americana, folk, and indie rock combined with live guitar looping, foot percussion, and carefully chosen lyrics.
