The Briar Patch in Bevington is happy to announce their first concert of the 2013, the Briar Patch Acoustic Kick-Off, which will take place on June 14th. This summer marks the ten year anniversary of the first Bevington Bluegrass Festival, and to commemorate, tickets to this first event will only be $10.00 (with a donation of non-perishable food). As in the past, the price of admission does allow for primitive camping.
The lineup includes the Dirty River Ramblers from Omaha, Nebraska, Jon Eric (the Banjo Ninja) from eastern Iowa and Ira Grace and the Bible Belt Prophets from right here in Iowa's capital city.

Gates for this event open at 6:00 and Ira Grace takes the stage at 8:00. The party is for those who are 18 and over only, and one must be 21 to drink alcohol. Other shows are being planned for the summer, including the first annual RAGPATCH (RAGBRAI meets BRIAR PATCH) on July 13. Jerry Daze will take place on August 10, and another event is being planned for late August and then in the early fall.
The Briar Patch Amphitheater continues to be the coolest little place in central Iowa to catch live music. It's good to see it back in full swing as it's legend continues to grow in 2013.
