For Immediate Release: The California Center for the Arts, Escondido’s Levitt Amp Escondido Music Series Entertains with Blues and Rock Music!


Escondido, California — :

The California Center for the Arts, Escondido continues the Levitt AMP Escondido Music Series on Saturday, October 13, 2018 from 4pm-7pm!

Headlining the next festival is Digging Roots, who will be performing at 5:30pm with the opener, Anthony “Fallbrook Kid” Cullins starting everything off at 4:30pm!

Musical partners Raven and ShoShona are the creative team and inspiration behind Digging Roots. The JUNO winning genre-blurring five-piece blues band is a musical group that balances femininity and masculinity with Indigenous tradition and modern aesthetics. Their goal is to engage wider audiences to promote their Anishinabek music and cultural ideals.

Anthony Cullins aka “The Fallbrook Kid,” is a 17-year-old musical prodigy whose guitar playing ability is years beyond his age. Anthony’s musical influences include R&B, funk, rock and blues, prominently displayed in his eclectic improvisational style. He has won many awards such as first place at the Dallas International Guitar Show’s “Young Guns” showcase, and has been hailed as an exciting upcoming talent in the guitar world.

The Center was recently awarded the Levitt AMP [Your City] Grant Award to help transform their underused public spaces through the power of free, live music.  While the program has been transforming cities across the nation since 2015, Escondido is the first city in California to be granted an award.

The Levitt AMP Escondido Music Series is generously sponsored by Escondido Wine Region, The San Diego Foundation, The San Diego Music Foundation, City Beat, Mother Earth, Nordson Corporation Foundation, Southern Exposure, Visit Escondido, Escondido Downtown Business Association and Museums & Arts Growing Escondido Culture (MAGEC).

This event is free and open to the public in the park, so you may want to bring a blanket or lawn chairs. Each “mini-festival” includes food trucks, arts and craft vendors, kids’ activities, and other entertainers in addition to live music. We have a large, free parking lot that you can enter on Escondido Blvd. or Woodward Ave. Additionally, there is some street parking on Broadway at the East end of Grape Day Park. No alcohol, BBQs, or popup tents allowed in the park. All animals must be leashed.
