Summergrass San Diego will afford those who love to hear good old country music behind the nostalgic chug-chug of steam engines that helped American become great the opportunity at the Antique Gas and Steam Engine Museum grounds, Aug. 18-20.
The annual Summergrass event that has delighted families for the past 15 years will return again featuring bluegrass greats like Danny Paisley & the Southern Grass, Chris Serna & Bluegrass Republic, Mojavi Soul, Bluegrass Etc., Sideline, Nu Blu, Chris Jones & the Night Drivers and others.
The Antique Gas and Steam Engine Museum will open its grounds at 2040 N. Santa Fe Ave. in Vista to celebrate 15 years of its Summergrass history with dry camping, kid’s camp, raffles, music and graft venders, lots of jamming, tasty food, music workshops and even an easy jam for beginners on the banjo to the guitar.
An added treat to the mountain and folk music heard through the history of the United States are the dozens of rejuvenated and operating steam engines and equipment dating back into the 1800s. It was America’s exciting country music and mechanical creative genius that brought American alive through the Industrial Age.
