Bluegrass and BBQ: Red Desert Ramblers

Wednesday, July 31, 2019 - 6:00pm to 8:00pm
Natural History Museum of Utah | Rio Tinto Center
Band members sit in the grass wearing matching red shirts.
Join us on Wednesday, July 31 at 6 p.m. for our Bluegrass and BBQ music series featuring the Red Desert Ramblers, and enjoy some summer BBQ while you enjoy the show.
 
The Red Desert Ramblers play Bluegrass, Classic Country and Swing music blending harmonies with smoking instrumental breaks. The Salt Lake Tribune says “when it comes to locally produced bluegrass bands, it’s hard to do better.”
 
They have been honored by the International Bluegrass Music Association by being the first Utah Band (and Sharon is the first hammered dulcimer player) to EVER be hired for an IBMA performance and were the only bluegrass band featured at the Mountain West Conference of the Arts. Members have won several awards including Sharon as best Utah dulcimer player and Rick Martinez as best banjo player for IAMA.
 
They are a regional band with national recognition and members hail from Salt Lake, and Summit counties representing the best of Utah. 
 
With our $5 After 5 ticket discount on Wednesday evenings, access to the concert and the entire Museum is just $5 after 5 p.m. Discounted tickets are available online and at the door. Food is available for purchase.

Bluegrass and BBQ is presented by NHMU and KRCL.
