Local singer and guitarist Jenn Knapp will play a free afternoon performance at the Miners Foundry on Sunday, April 3.

A Nevada City native, Knapp performs her music—largely on a ’67 Martin guitar that belonged to her grandfather— sharing old favorites along the lines of Jimmie Rodgers and Hank Williams as well as more modern artists like Roy Orbison, Dolly Parton, and Emmylou Harris. Knapp has a classic voice which ranges from sultry to melodic and everything in between.

“I always really enjoy playing the Miners Foundry,” Knapp said. “It has a lovely ambience, wonderful staff and a music loving audience. It has definitely been one of my favorite places to play as we have been emerging from the pandemic. I especially enjoy the patio and the passersby who dance in the streets and become part of the audience.”

Miners Foundry continues to consider the safety of its guests and staff. Please visit minersfoundry.org for the most up to date safety guidelines.
