By Staff

The 14th annual outdoor concert series at Pine Lake Park continues Aug. 7 with Junkyard Jane introducing swampabilly blues to local crowds.

The concerts in the park are from 6:30-8 p.m. Thursdays through Aug. 28.

There is plenty of lawn space, so you can bring your own picnic basket. The Rotary Club of Sammamish will sell barbecue dinners and the Kiwanis Club of Sammamish will sell ice cream. No alcohol is allowed in the park.

Junkyard Jane has been bringing swampabilly blues to Northwest audiences since 1997. The band coined the term “swampabilly” as their defining genre when forced to describe their sound, which is a mix of gumbo of Americana, blues, country, folk, funk, rock, and swampy, New Orleans influenced music.

Pine Lake Park, 2401 228th Ave. S.E., has limited parking. Parking is also available at Discovery Elementary School and at the Pine Lake Park & Ride. A free shuttle is available to and from the park & ride. No dogs are allowed on the shuttle.

The next concert in the park features Tom Petty tribute band Petty Fever on Aug. 14.
