Sundays in the Redwoods: Concert Series 2010

Sundays in the Redwoods is a concert series in Oakland, California where people from all over the bay area gathered at Joaquin Miller Park to celebrate different genres of music each weekend. Hosted by the Oakland’s office of Parks & Recreation and Vice Mayor Jean Quan, the community is given different series of concerts for the fall; Wold Music Day (Sept 19th), Soul Symphony (Sept. 26th), The Rythmn Section(Oct. 3rd), and Talking All That Jazz (Oct. 10th).  The artists headlining the upcoming series will be Angie Stone, Goerge Duke, Martin Luther, Michael Morgan, Pete Escovedo, Stable Wilson, and this past Sunday was Oakland’s own, Goapele, alongside The Oakland East Bay Symphony.  Unfortunately I was unable to attend but, photographer Fredrick Shavies (@fredshavies) of, did an outstanding job at capturing the essence of the artist and her band, time of day, and influence Oakland has on music culture.

Tickets are a $5 Donation, Gates open at 1 pm and starts at 2pm every Sunday.
