Portola Valley arts committee hosts concert under the stars

The Portola Valley Cultural Arts Committee will host a second free live outdoor music concert from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, Aug. 27, at the Portola Valley Town Center lawn.

The concert features the Windy Hill band, "five local musicians who combine their musical talents to create foot-stomping bluegrass rhythms and harmony," said Deirdre Clark, co-chair of the committee.

People are invited to bring their own picnics, beverages, blankets, jackets, and "dancin' shoes if you wish," Ms. Clark said.

The first concert under the stars was met with rave reviews by residents, Ms. Clark said. Among the comments she received:

"It was so beautiful with the music and setting at the Town Center — it was almost surreal."

"Who knew the performance lawn would have such great acoustics?"
