Brynn Albanese and Jody Mulgrew are performing together at the Cambria Community Arts Theater (CCAT) on Saturday, August 14th at 7:30pm.  You may know Brynn from her role as Concertmaster and first chair violinist of the SLO Symphony, her gypsy-tango group Café Musique, her trio Classinova, her pandemic-inspired “One Woman Show”, or on stage with any number of artists spanning the full gamut of music genres.  Jody Mulgrew is a local troubadour crooner with an unmistakable tenor voice who has captivated audiences locally and nationally for many years.  Brynn and Jody have joined forces to create a diverse collaboration of soulful, almost meditative selections. The combination of Jody’s beautiful tenor voice, superb song writing mixed with Brynn’s soaring and soothing sounds from her violin offer audiences a very unique and emotional experience that’ll be remembered long after the concert is over.  Limited tickets for this very special concert are available now at

Back Bay Betty out on the back bay.

Sea Pines Golf Resort presents Vinyl Record Day on Saturday, August 14 from 2:00 to 6:00pm as part of the weekly Barefoot Concerts on the Green Series, featuring local favorites Back Bay Betty. 

Sea Pines emcee, Gary Freiberg, is the founder of this annual event, bringing in vinyl record dealers from around the state and offering classics, collectibles, and other records for sale.

Vinyl Record Day is a day to celebrate them with friends, family and music.” 

Be sure to come early, as the first 200 attendees will receive a free “Mural of Album Cover Art” poster.  Admission is free and open to all ages. More details are at
