Cousin Jack’s Mariposa Evenings - brought to you by The Mariposa County Arts Council and many fine sponsors – presents it’s next to last weekend of free concerts with a special and unique performance by Adam Burns’ Beat Harveston Friday, August 15, and taking the stage on Saturday, August 16, will be Bootstrap Circus.
Born and raised in the UK, singer/songwriter Adam Burns has had a huge influence on the already burgeoning local Mariposa/Yosemite music scene, since settling in the area some years ago. Not only has he made an impact as a performer and recording artist (lending his production skills to other projects other than his own), but has been a brilliant influence on his students, teaching at his music academy. Burn’s Beat Harvest will be a showcase performance by his most accomplished students; a sort of rock recital. All tips received from the audience will be donated to the Cousin Jack Music Foundation, a non-profit organization that gives yearly scholarships to local graduating students, continuing their studies in music.
