If you love taking the family to Central Market to have dinner and see a concert outside, you will also love bringing the family to Kenny Dorham's backyard. Kenny Dorham's* is part of the Coalition of Austin Community Gardens. It has been a featured stop on various garden tours. On Friday August 7th, COME ENJOY A PICNIC IN THE GARDEN AND SOME LIVE MUSIC OUTDOORS!!! (The yard is shaded and enjoys a prevailing breeze we promise.)

8-9:30pm Julie Slim and friends
10-11:30pm Naga Valli

THIS IS EASY. Don't bring a picnic. We've got it covered. There will be FOOD TRAILERS ON SITE. Check them out here: 1)

*Ravner Salinas is a solo classical guitarist performing original works with 'world' flavor, as well as pieces from Agustin Barrios and Beethoven on acoustic guitar and bowed electric guitar.

*Julie Slim will be collaborating with a group of musicians from different world music bands for this concert. You will hear songs in Arabic, French and Persian with Kamran Hooshmand (oud/guitar/voice), Anne Alexander (percussion), and Don Weeda (accordion) from 1001 Nights Orchestra; Ziyad Doany (percussion) from Layalina; and James Anderson (violin) from Austin Piazzola Quintet and Rendez Vous ; ; ; ;

*Naga Valli grew up in Mumbai, India. Her music is described as East Indian Soul with delicate touches of pop, rock, trance and pure Eastern tradition. Naga Valli was ranked in the Top 3 World Music Artists at the 2014-15 Austin Music Awards. The power and emotion in Valli’s voice, her lyrics that speak of inner struggles and inspiration, combined with the effortlessness with which she blends Eastern overtones with Western melodies make Valli’s music refreshingly unique and yet familiar at the same time.

*Kenny Dorham's Backyard 1106 e 11th was named after a legendary jazz trumpeter who once lived in the East Austin neighbourhood. The 2-acre space is a unique and creative community space managed by Diverse Arts.
