THURSDAY LOWDOWN: ‘Bluegrass and Beyond’ and Beyond

Your Humboldt Thursday is particularly music heavy. Some highlights: 

  • The Humboldt Folklife Festival continues at Dell’Arte in Blue Lake with its Bluegrass and Beyond night featuring headliners the Compost Mountain Boys (above). 
  • For those who crave more subdued settings, Pacific Northwest singer/songwriter Eleanor Murray plays an intimate show at The Sanctuary in Arcata.
  • When the lights go down in Eureka you’ll find Journey tribute band Journey Revisted on Madaket Plaza, the latest entry in this year’s Summer Concert Series. 

More details on those shows and more in your Lowdown listings below.
