Hankerin’ for foot stompin’ hoedown in Truckee?

If the answer is yes, join the Humane Society of Truckee-Tahoe for the 2nd Annual Barn Dance party featuring Truckee’s own Dead Winter Carpenters. For only $20 this hootenanny includes a delicious, catered barbecue dinner, fantastic live music and tons of fun! All benefiting our community’s homeless pets, Friday, July 23, 6-10 p.m., Truckee, Hwy. 89 at Alder Creek Road.

Boasting a creative combination of members of San Francisco’s Montana Slim String Band and Tahoe’s Rusty Strings, Dead Winter Carpenters are poised with an arsenal of original material and are doggedly preparing for a break-out summer. Laced with elements of bluegrass, folk, ragtime, blues, reggae and rock and roll, the rollicking five-piece, consisting of fiddler Jenni Charles, upright bassist Dave Lockhart, guitarists Jesse Dunn and Sean Duerr and drummer Ryan Davis, brings to the table a unique blend of genuine, authentic songwriting and dynamic musicianship that is sure to have the dance floor hoppin’.

The beverages will be flowin’ and the Humane Society folks will be groovin’, all to benefit homeless pets in our community.

Last years event was a ridiculous amount of fun, so don’t miss out, mark Friday, July 23 on your calendar, polish up your cowboy boots and get ready to party! Visit hstt.org for information.
