Altadena’s free Concerts in the Park series kicks off its 15th year this Saturday with a little something from the old country: the Irish Volunteers and the Irish Pride Dancers. “The Irish Volunteers” isn’t exactly the snappiest name for a folk-rock band—it doesn’t really sound like a band at all—but a band they are, a four member outfit with a guitar, an accordion, and a tin whistle (and a trombone, at least in the photo at right).
The Concerts in the Park series is organized by the Sheriff’s Support Group of Altadena. As in the past, Amy’s Patio café will be offering gourmet dinners. New this year, however, is booze: the Rotary Club (!) will be selling wine and draft beer for consumption within the amphitheater. Also new this year is El Patron, who will be selling a couple different boxed dinners for $5 a pop.
The whole summer concert series schedule is available here.
