This Saturday, local bluegrass and oldtime band Backporch Banjo are back at the Zocalo Café.

Last seen In December, the band is back with a fresh, harmony-rich sound featuring fiddler Ted Granger as well as familiar faces from the backporch: Linda Thorburn on banjo, Bob Slater on guitar, banjo and vocals, and Kazimea Sokil on mandolin, banjo and vocals.

The band’s repertoire ranges from hard-driving bluegrass to foot-stomping old time with an occasional ballad and original song thrown in.

Zocalo is an all-ages, licensed venue with a great menu. (And kids love this music, too!).

The show starts April 21 at the Zocalo at 7 p.m. Admission is by donation.
